Well after a ****-ton of hard work, franky is running agian.
Didnt take any pics this time, was too cold out.
So to sum it up.
This is engine #4 in the car, it now has 1.9 rockers, 105# springs, headers, 98+ throttle body, 3.2 pulley. Right now it has a no-name brand 255lph fuel pump in it that i dont trust but it works, a walbro is in the mail as i type this tho so that will put my mind at ease once that comes.
The list of engines:
1- Factory LN3, Randy decided it was too gutless and pulled it (I dont blame him at all.
2- L67 Out of a wrecked 97 SSEI 140k, was in damn good shape, fuel pump failed at wot and caused a uber lean condition, and piston went boom.
3- L67 From Crap-*** junkyard in ohio, out of a 97 SSEI with 83k. Didnt really trust the engine once I tore into it, LIM gaskets failing and someone definately was inside the engine before, the freeze plugs were replaced with ones that were not Factory GM. And there was evidence that it had been overheated at some point, discolored rockers and the head surface had burnt on oil the heads. Fears were confirmed when engine was running after a while it was ticking at all times, and blew up about 2000mi later. Shot piston, expected it, engine never did run right.
4- L67 From Ed Morad, out of a 97 RIviera with 110k, Looks great inside, had some minor carbon buildup in the heads and on the pistons, cleaned up and reassembled, Runs EXCELLENT so far. No problems seen or expected with this one. (yay *crosses fingers*)
