11-12-12 motor teardown prep for rebuild
tore it down to find out what we expected, broken ringlands on the tight
cylinders and some bent rods, wich is common for gen3 guts at 650+rwhp,
looks like everything looks good! im throwing in some gen4 used pistons and
rods hopefully getting them tomorrow and hand gapping them loose for Boost!
11-2-12 fairmont motor is ok again
man this thing just wont quit, look how nice this pistons are. as i explain
in the video i believe i lifted a head because im finally making big power
and also because i bypassed the Intercooler, inlet temps were fine
below 120f i was running 26lbs of Boost though! on weak tty bolt and only
65ftlbs tq! haha
5.3 Turbo LSx Fairmont on the Dyno.....
Here is the Fairmont on the Dyno yesterday. Numbers were all
wonky, but the torque was a corrected 692 RWTQ. With this car, torque and
HP generally mimic each other. Smoke show is a new development that popped
up after I changed the oil. I was thinking it was due to the very loose
ring gap and the 5w-30 I changed it with. So, I went to a conventional
10w-40 after this pull. Still smokes as a result of "gravity," as in when
in reverse, coming to a stop, turns or when it is on an incline. I think I
have an oil return line issue. Going to pull it off and see if there is a
clog or obstruction.
8-5-12 4L80E quick drive
just got it done the other day wanted to show you guys what its like
driving around nicely, i have been working on the trans shift tables, and
lockup figuring out what i want. trans cooler isnt working well enough so
after 30 min or so the trans is over 200f and wont come back down, so this
was a quick drive i apologize but it should hold you over for a little haha

points there was a big fan in the garage making the wind noise, i was
