    yeah all a hi stall does is stop the car from stalling when u go to take off by letting the revs get high enuff for the car not to stall and drop below the cams rpm range man

    But okay guys.. Say I am not going to stroke my LS1, and I am going to go down the NA path not the forced induction. BUT I want to keep it as a daily. Not a trailer queen, but I am not affraid of it attracting attention due to its ability to barely hold idle.. What size should I be looking at..? So i would still be wanting to make some fairly decent / serious power but keep it as a daily.. Would 232/234 be fine?

    Also this is semi hypothetical.... Because I am still loving the idea of a blower.. Haha But I can imagine my first true engine mode will be going a NA cam swap to keep me happy for a while I save some $ for a deposit on a house or something :)

    Eddy will be able to tune a 232/234 perfectly, when I was looking at a cam he said he had tuned many of these cams and had a hi stall that would match it perfectly for street use. He also said with OTR/full exhaust/diff gears as well as slicks you could run 11s all day.

    So in other words good for the street and push 400hp.

    400hp is alright lol. A blower will piss in 450rwhp. I'm going to aim for 700-800rwhp.

    Its legal as long as its not hooked up, and as for the 400rwhp... Trust me... I want more then that... But I think I am just going to go with the cam first.. To allow me to save for a new block and then build it bullet proof and boost the SH!T out of it.. (thinking procharger? Push for 800hp or more?)

    If not cam I was thinking whipple for now.. But like I said.. Its all a while off unfortunately... If I could I would have a different set up for every day of the week :p

    And by not hooked up I mean have the line physically not connected, can be sitting there like a cm apart, but cannot be connected..

    But next mod that will very likely happen in the near future I am thinking either tint or custom plates... What do you reckon guys? 20% tint.. or name plates.. I got a few ideas of names...

    Nup. WA and QLD are the only states in which it's illegal to have nitrous in your vehicle period. And it carries a $20,000 fine, or so I've been told. Obviously you can have the bottle in your car otherwise you can't transport it, but any lines or fittings are illegal.

    I think you would struggle hardcore to break 800hp without spending a lot of money on internals, gearbox, diff etc.

    Yeah I know, but it is definitely something to try and work towards isnt it? No point setting your sights low then you dont know what you couuld have acheived...

    And for the blown setup I would def be modifying the internals to suit. Hence why I would go a different block.. Not the LS1.. or at the bare minimum, not the ALLOY LS1.. Go the cast iron LS1 block from the truck version...

    Having problems with my ABS module.... Yaaay.... From all my searching around JC, basically it just means I gotta buy a new one :'(

    Apparently they fail often? Anyone else had an ABS that shat brix for no reason?

    But hey, look on the plus side, I now know now make your traction control off and always off.... Apparently its the first thing mechanics do when they are getting an after market LPG system installed.. They disable traction control to prevent it from shutting the car down...

    Don't know how legal it would be without the LPG system installed tho..

    Is it starting up and beeping, and turning traction control off and illuminating some of the dash lights?

    Happened to my car once, turned it off, started it again and never happened again, 3 months later.
