Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Yep, never have to worry about any of the sensor wires coming lose because every one of them uses some type of very secure locking method like that one. Once you have it inserted and locked correctly, no way it's ever coming out on its own. Just another reason why the platform is mostly trouble free...

Re: Boat Build

Sensors aren't something to worry about imo. They are very reliable in my experience. Also, I actually prefer factory, unopened engines vs "built" engines. The factory absolutely knows how to put them together for reliable operation. Custom builds can also be reliable, but my experience is its hit o...

Re: Boat Build

The formula never changes.

6lbs of loaded boat weight per available hp and it will run dry acceptably.

The less weight per hp the better.

Imo, 400hp on a 16x8 is going to under perform because you will exceed 2400lbs easily.

Big boat, Big power. No way around it.

Good luck!

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Yep, tuner did what tuners do. Fail hard core at doing what they said they were going to do.

You have several sensors that need to have their faults turned off.

It's that or you have some sensors to work out the issues on. Just look up those codes and go one by one.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

You already got the ground answer. Super simple thankfully. As to how it is mounted in vehicles....they use an injection molded housing that fits over the outside of the PCM and then that is bolted down. Somewhat like a glove with the glove bolted. That's how mine is and has been since 2012. I think...

Re: 6.0l LS2 rebuild looking for more power

In short, forced induction greatly increases power at a given rpm. If you want a lower cruise rpm, you need more usable power at that rpm so you can run more pitch or a longer prop at the same pitch. Carmotorbarge advised you cant get 550hp at 5000 rpm with any cam because you need more displacement...

Re: 6.0l LS2 rebuild looking for more power

If you want to improve your cruise RPM, here are a few ideas: 1. Since you are pitched at 3, either add a fourth blade or get a larger hub to increase the prop's diameter. This will decrease your cruise RPM and increase static thrust. 2. Stroke the engine. With the proper cam, this will increase HS...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Regarding in line filter. If it flows 50gph or more at 80 psi then I would say its viable. Issue to keep in mind is pressure drop across a small filter like that. If it's too restrictive, your lift pump may not be able to keep the high pressure pump fed at high flow rates. The high side pump needs t...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

be cautious about oversizing... keep your runs short as possible... remember the turbo has to compensate for the volume of the piping and intercooler and lag can be exacerbated by an oversized system. Honestly dont think you can have any issues with sizing. This "dont go too big" advice for turbo p...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

OD of turbo outlet is a little more than 1.8”. OD on intake connection is a little more than 2.8”. So on those ends I guess I will find the fittings with a ID of about 1.75” and 2.75”. I’ll pick a intercooler with 3” inlets and outlets. For the piping I am planning to transition to 3” for the turbo...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

If you run into issues, then at least you have an idea where to look. I also hope in your case the 12 inch min rule doesn't apply.

I have seen it so often that I always recommend it.

I am looking forward to seeing it done!

Wire is made and will go on last. We just decided to go with tie wraps versus welding it on.
Only way to go imo. I did same thing. No way will ever go back to welding or metal tie straps. Regular old 50lb black zip ties work great.

About 150 to 200 of them 😂

Re: BMW m57 engine for DD? Diesel.

Dont worry about the torque, look at power @ rpm. 220hp at 2500 rpm would be ok with perhaps a 70 or 72 inch 2 blade water Walker signature blade. Other manufacturers have similar product offering. The best advice you will ever get is this. Keep boat weight under 6lbs per available horsepower. Good ...
