    Rocker covers and brake master cylinder

    they are pretty close to each other, and are a pain to get on, but they should be doable. are they higher rockers to allow rollers? are the engine mounts ok? is the block sitting where it should be? there should be no reason to change the booster. unless youre using aftermarket rockers and...

    trimatic trans cooler lines

    considering trans temps can run up into the high 120C under load and radiator operating temp is around 90C... id would NEVER rely solely on a trans cooler. always fit the cooler then the radiator in series. this will help balance out the temperature going into the trans so you dont get...

    Thermo fan help

    black is earth blue is positive. thats if youre installing it downstream. reverse the polarity if your installing upstream (fan in front of the radiator) the two connectors are standard narva bullets, black is female and blue is male so youll need to get the opposites. they do this so you cant...

    thanks fellas. I wouldn't say I'm "back" as such, more like I have internet access again after a long while.

    How have people done there fibre glass reverse cowls to steal bonnets

    pre drill your holes counter sink the holes with a bigger drill put a line of sikaflex on, more on the inner edge so it doesnt squeeze out the outside put all your pop rivets in the cowl lower the cowl down onto the bonnet using the rivets as a guide pop them up if sikaflex comes out, get rid of...

    LS3 crate motor will not start

    now that the tune is pretty much complete, then running logs is pretty much the same as RTT, since you need to copy/paste/flash the new VE tables anyway with RTT, but at the start when i was trying to get a VT commodore tune to work on a 454, then yeah it was cruicial, the immediate changes to...

    LS3 crate motor will not start

    yeah i do. its a trick bit of kit and worth every penny IMO. real time tuning is handy as all hell, just get your wideband setup, adjust correction factors for VE then go driving.

    How have people done there fibre glass reverse cowls to steal bonnets

    ill bet you 5000 bucks that if you use sikaflex 227 and pop rivets, then youll never see a join, other than the one when it was painted.

    so... youre saying you need this to suit a stock torque converter, but that seems a bit silly, since youre going to want a BIG converter once you go boost, so what youre asking for is "is there a stick that i can use on a stock converter which will also be useful on a 5k stally?" which the...
