Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

skinny The B207 is an LK9 turbocharged version instead of the supercharged LSJ. You probably can find a good tuner and swap out the P12 (which you likely have) to a E67. https://www.cobaltss.net/forums/2-0l-lsj-performance-tech-47/want-run-e67-computer-your-lsj-powered-car-its-easy-304426/ ZZP may b...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Skinny... if you need an Ecotec breakdown here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GM_Ecotec_engine Basically a 2.4 NA that tops out about 190-200HP... I make that with the 1.4L Turbo... Best bang for the buck is a LHU or newer LTG - 2.0L Turbo, but I looked at doing a new boat and just doesnt make since ...

Re: anyone running a 350 with 2.1 box?

Torque is nothing but cylinder pressure x cylinder area x crank lobe offset It is absolutely useless number w/o rpm being involved and torque x rpm = HP If you want to run your engine at high torque which equals high cylinder pressure and lug the motor all the time... by all means let it blow! That'...

You go it going right... you dont need the front mounts I have... I bought them just for pattern purposes on building the mounts you already have built. Good luck to you.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

Ballistic is the only option for LTG unless you build adapters. LTG bellhousing pattern is different from other Ecotecs. Need to get a sealed gauge panel box such as a nema enclosure and run a Banks 1.8 IDash off the OBDII

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

You can remove the FPCM from the tune all together, just make sure the fuel pressure sensor is wired to the ECM correctly and in the regulated supply line to the High Pressure Cam Driven Pump. LHU fuel systems are direct injected so there are some extra steps that need to be made to assure there is ...

Re: 3.6 twin turbo engine

AFI has probably done enough bad business with the airboat world that enough word has spread. If you want Turbo Ecotec then DIY or maybe CBM if you can convince them to let you or someone else tune it vs their stock tunes. If you want NA then TKE make a good 2.4L package.

Gmlan is GM proprietery high speed Canbus language.

The only way to go straight marine analog on an ecotec boat is add sensors you need and you can splice into the crank wiring.

There are no marine gauges that will work with GMLAN.
