Before you put the L67 in, may I recommend getting this...
http://www.intense-racing.com/Mercha...roduct_Count=1

might as well while you can get to it and its a cheap way to kill some KR.
Also, I would change out the heater hoses for sure and possibly the fuel lines and brake lines if they are rusty.

Wow! I didn't see this coming. Was it a surprise? This is so great, and I'm glad you're doing it so carefully. I can't wait to see that clean engine compartment. Good luck!

not really a surprise, kind of an epiphany. realizing the limitations of the W body ecu, and a poorly designed trans mount by myself. but i also have too many cars and its time to clear the driveway! and thanks for the luck. im working on it by myself, so ill need it.

4T60'* haven't had any false knock issues that I'm aware of. Don't sweat the false knock kit.

Looking good. What are the ratio'* of the two racks?

well maybe i'll still wrap the sensor, thats easy.

the parts look up showed 2 racks available. it didnt say the ratio. it just listed the # of ports. 2 or 3 port available. i just got the 3 port, which was on the car originally.

here, it is rainy, so this has been a 200 dollar investment well spent.

but i am debating whether or not to remove the condenser. the only reason im contiplating keeping just that in, is that it has protected the rad well so far. but on the other hand, i would get more air flow to the radiator. any opinions on that?

Yeah you will get more airflow as well as rocks and bugs too if your car has not been running hot and you don't plan on going to the track with it, then leave it in. maybe the condenser could be used to cool some other type of fluid. I know of a redneck down here that took the electric pump of an asphalt roller and did some plumbing work to a heater core to cool his turbo oil.
