LS2 swapped '91 Z28 vs. '96 LT1 SS
The red SS is cam/head/intake/weight reduction/geared LT1. 3.90 gears in
the back, huge cam, a ton of parts removed for weight reduction, and the
thing rolls out as you can tell from the video. My Z28 vert is
significantly heavier than his car and is a cam-only LS2 T56 car, very
impressed with the results of this one. This is 3rd and 4th gears.
LS1 '92 Camaro on the Dyno at LS Fest - LSx 5.3 "Squirter" Project T56 6 Speed - Third Gen
This Dyno video was
shot at LS Fest 2013 in Bowling Green, KY.
The Squirter Project started out as a 2000 5.3 engine I picked up to go
into my '87 Chevy truck. Once I got it home, pulled the spark plugs out and
attempted to rotate the engine, water shot out across my garage. This is on
video and can be seen in the "Squirter" video playlist on my Channel. After
that we pulled the heads and found the rust in one bank of cylinders that
would not allow the engine to completely rotate over.
I did not want to invest in boring, buying pistons and bearings for this
motor. So we decided to recycle the engine. The day before we took it to
the scrap yard I got an idea for a fun learning experiment and presented it
to my YouTube audience.
The idea was to sand paper out the bores until it would rotate. Then slap
the heads back on it and run it on an engine stand. This would show us how
an engine runs with poor quality cylinder walls and also show everyone what
it takes to make an LS engine run all by itself on an engine stand. Then
one could apply what they see on the engine stand to their own swap
Everyone liked the idea and decided to donate to help make this project
possible. Once we ran it on the stand (also in the "Squirter" video
playlist), it ran so well that we decided to slip in a cam and drop it into
my '92 Camaro to make
LS Fest in a month and see how long the engine will hold up. When
assembling the motor I had the heads milled .045". Once the engine was
together and running well, I also decided to cut out the rocker stud lumps
from the intake ports of the heads. To fit the character of the Squirter I
left the heads on the engine while working the ports.
Over all we are happy with how the Squirter project as come along and are
still having fun with it.

LS1 Iroc at the track
11.67. Not the best run, so far best run has been an 11.62 @117 with the
18' wheels but didn't catch it on video. The car still has more in it with
a better launch and some drag wheels and slicks.
