Thanks for a great forum, I've learned alot from it in the months that I've been a member. I am swapping a 95 lt1 six speed into a 1951 Henry J and we are getting close to getting the engine to run. I'll probably be posting some questions in the future and look forward to any help the forum can be. Thanks in advance. Don
Glad to see a forum with actual muscleheads with knowledge!
94 Z topless and sexy in arctic white. 6 speed (durn skip shift). 180,000 miles. Leather and loaded. Completely stock except for the 20" fondmetal wheels wrapped in Falkens and the MTX 12" Terminator subs, box and amp combo. I am a certified transmission tech (automatic trans, ASE certification). I come with some knowledge looking for more. Hopefully some day I will be able to pass on what I know to help out my fellow GM fanatics and gain knowledge on the LT1 and it's potential to be a screamer! :cheers: :thumbsup:
What's up guys and girls??? I'm new to this forum but have several questions. I just bought an 02 Firebird Trans Am w/ LS1 V8 "As Is". As soon as i drove it off the lot the "Check Engine Soon" light came on and i had it coded. They tell me its a Knock sensor. Has any one had this problem also and how did you fix it ??? Any help will be greatly appreciated........
I found this on the net. I have an LT1 and the sensor is located on the passenger side of the block toward the bottom.
You're LS1 is:
By virtue of their location in the valley area between the cylinder banks, the LS1's knock sensors are excellently positioned in the block to sense engine acoustics. They look the same as the knock sensors GM has been using since the TPI days, but are specially tuned for the acoustic signature produced by abnormal combustion in the LS1's aluminum-block engine. They are torqued to 15 lb-ft with a 7/8 deep socket. Don't overtighten these suckers, they're sensitive pieces of equipment! The piece of wiring harness that connects to these two sensors must also now be installed as the intake manifold is soon to go on atop them.
Hi my name is Eric. I am from Westville, Il. I have a 1995 Roadmaster wagon that i just bought. I also have a 1972 pontiac wagon that i just bought. I have working on the Roadmaster now.

I'm a veteran of the car auctions and I will share some of my knowledge and opinions with you. Statement You can save loadsa money! Truth. Only on forecourt prices which are over the top anyway Advice. If you go to an auction go with someone who knows the score or you'll be sorry. You'll see lots of dealers there who will be looking for the cream to sell off their forecourts. If they swarm around it it's worth bidding on. Remember that they .
I'm a squarebody enthusiast at heart so I know more about the old school small blocks than the lt1 or ls motors. Just recently had a 94 Caprice 9c1 with an lt1 given to me by a buddy of mine and it seems like it's gonna be some fun.
I was doing the valve lash on my 95 lt1, only to realize the rocker studs seemed too short. #1 intake stripped when I revved the motor up to about 6k. The rocker nuts only go on a couple of threads. Does anyone have a part number for longer 3/8" rocker studs? Maybe ARP? I can't seem to find what...
