• Could anyone tell me what they did regarding the LS1 front steam pipes. I’m not looking to block them completely, but more so asking the question if i need to run the factory setup which is via the throttle body?

    if i understand the factory setup properly, it is used for vehicles in cold climates to keep the throttle from freezing up

    Can i by…[Read more]

  • I ended up buying a balancer install tool, Balancer went on no issues. It’s all torqued up. Engine has been all cleaned up. Will get the transmission bolted up in the next few days and start fitting some of the accessories and engine and battery looms

     

    then i just need to start pulling apart the VY Berlina

  • thanks, misread that.

    i haven’t got a specific tool to install it, was just going to lock the flexplate up and put it on most of the way with the old bolt, then remove the old bolt and finish up with the new ARP Bolt i have. the rest of the way?

    is there another way?

  • wheres that marked? on the balancer? its covered in surface rust bit hard to read anything on it

  • Hi, Been a while but finally planning to do the engine conversion……

    A couple of things have changed, but basic plan now is to get the stock LS1 into the car and get it running, the only thing i am doing before it goes in are, the Rear main gasket and plate, Oil Pan gaskets, and a new front crankshaft seal and timing cover gasket.

  • Just wondering if there is a different between a VX LS1 and VY LS1 throttle body. In particular, where the cruise control cable connects to the little stud(non traction control car)

    The engine, which I’m about to put in my VY Ute was originally from a VX. I’ve bought a VY cruise control module from a VY SS Ute, but the clip on the end of the cab…[Read more]

  • Reminds me a bit of the HSV colour Jaffa on the 10th anniversary VT HSV’s

     

  • Airbags are defiantly optional on VS executive, also steering wheel center is different on a non airbag car, they dont have a clock spring for the airbags the later Holden Logo is also used on the steering wheel center that was introduced in VS production (compared to VN/VP/VR type logo) so it cant have been swapped from an early holden…[Read more]

  • My VS is a 1996 series 2 Executive (was a v6-now v8) even then the ABS/Airbags/IRS were still optional

    mine was factory fitted with ABS,  but doesnt have Airbags or IRS

    mate of mine has a 1995 VS executive he picked up for a run around and it doesnt have ABS, Airbags or IRS

    I think with my VS the live axle has a limited amount of space for a…[Read more]

    I’ll try and fit a new insert into the spare housing I have and see how it goes.

    $36 isn’t a huge outlay, it might also give me enough time to decide on the other mount if it doesn’t work out

  • exec24 replied to the topic Diff Mounts in the forum Driveline 2 years, 3 months ago

    I’ve had the diff out once before. I thought while i was at it to replace the standard type rubber mount with nolathene type but when I went to do it couldn’t get the insert into the housing.

    i ended up giving up a refitting the stock one.

    now that I’m fitting the new diff soon, I’m just trying to work out the best option,  I’m not real sure…[Read more]
