Re: Important

Career politicians have destroyed our Country. I wish we the people could bring to a vote 1 term limit for every office in Washington DC. That would have to be better than what we have today. Career politicians will lie to keep a job. One reason I voted for Trump is because both Democrats and Republ...

Re: Ecotec 2.0 LTG High School/Home Build

Boat looks fantastic brother! I might have mine back together by the end of the day today if I can get my chores done this morning :D . I purchased one of those vacuum assist coolant tools. I'm going to add a port at the radiator in the return line to introduce the coolant and pull the vacuum from t...

Re: I'm Building 2 Stossel Boats with High Torque Motors

That L83 will make 700hp or so without too much work if you throw a turbo on it. I was looking at that motor as a backup plan. Lots of support for the L83/L86 in stand alone. Just dont be shy about calling for a tow :D

Re: Important

Pretty crazy how polarized this nation is right now. My Dad and I actually got into a legit argument over politics. I have NEVER argued with my dad not once in my 49 years. Yes we disagree and pick on each other all the time especially about politics. And the crazy thing is we agree on every issue d...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

3 hours to pull the cage and motor. Not too bad. Found some oil in the intake right where the PCV system connects up stream of the turbo. I guess I’ll look into a catch can. Supposedly oil consumption can get significant on some of these motors at higher boost levels. I’m also going to use this oppo...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Yea I certainly didn’t plan on taking advantage of the cheap motor replacement so soon but oh well....I wanted a spare motor anyway.

Getting towed back ain’t so bad as long as you have beer and friends 8)

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

BEST NEWS:

Ordered another motor with 3000 miles and it will be here Friday. $1100 delivered. I’ll swap them and plan the monster build on the take off. Hopefully no block or head damage. 100% my stupidity.

I think I can do the swap in one long day.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Bad news: Changed coolant lines and had trouble getting the air out of the system. Played with it for a while and thought I got it done. Went ride and coolant temp climbed to 240....let it idle and it dropped to 190. Went another mile to my buddy’s camp and parked it with temp at 220. Was going to l...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Good news:

Upgraded intercooler and she ran like a Boss. 21 psi boost....IAT is actually cooler than ambient, no knock, runs great.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Made a ride today. Only making about 14-16 psi boost. RPM'S right now top out at 4400-4500....then the ECU pulls it back to 4200 with the way it's currently pitched and tuned. It planes off in deep water in about the length of the boat with two people. Pulls very hard. It will break dry ground in ta...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Not giving up yet Chuck but I am making an alternate plan for about 500HP and 4 more cylinders :D . I'm not saying that if someone offered me a fair price for my motor, gearbox, and other junk that I would not be tempted to take it..........

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Update. Tried several combinations from the Dakota Digital unit to get a speed signal to be read by the E80 to no avail. Mitch has been hanging in there with me trying a bunch of different tricks to try to get it to quite power limiting us. As of today the E80 is still winning. Not going to lie I ha...

Re: Ecotec I4 engine identification

GM discontinued the standalone ECM and harness for the LTG. I tried to order one a few months ago. It was discontinued in December or last year. You may still see if listed for sale on a few sites but there are none out there. I tried for 3 weeks to find one.

Re: Ecotec I4 engine identification

I don't know if the E69 will work with the LNF or not but I think one of the proven ECM'S is the E39A with the appropriate harness. I would follow one of the proven recipes. I was smart and tried something a bit different on my LTG .....the E80...... and it still is not working right. My fall back p...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Damn! I did not think about the tac signal. Mitch has that wire in the harness labeled so its easy to find and get to. Will that be a 5v signal?
