Some of the mods and myself are in the process of naking a bunch of write ups on various things to do with our cars. But we need to know what you want to know about! It can be anything from changing a tire to a heads and cam swap step by step walk thru.

So post up what you would like o know about. Or if you already have a write up and would like to have it used, you can PM it or email it to me. [email protected]

All of these would be compiled for our FAQ tech section.

It's something that has been in the works. Between me, Chris, Jaberwaki and a couple of others we've made a few and are prepared to do more, but we want to know what everyone is looking for.

Maybe a "Common Tools Used" type list with sizes and whatnot.
That would definately be nice to have. A guid to show how to install a cam would be nice. Along with valve train upgrades or installing ported heads. Something in that area would be nice to know how to do.

yup, and also i think a general Maintenance for the LT1,, u know for ppl who wanna longer their engines life, with no internal modifications, just what are the things u must change to keep the engine running well.. like that article "How To Create A Reliable and Powerful High-Mile LT1" from GMHP,, but in more detailz and maybe more options on parts than what they used. also a main thing i thought about,, an order on how to modify your car, so u wont do onething and tear it apart for another mod,, based on experiance maybe..

I will agree with that comment. Like the guide Ls1tech.com has in the Lt1-Lt4 section. Just a general guide, maybe get more complex with combinations of heads and cams ect...

well think about the most popular mods.

1. How to install GEARS!
2. How to install HEADERS!
3. How to install a STALL!

Or for maintenance type of things.

1. How to replace Opti-spark!
2. How to change plugs and wires! <-- simple as it is, it is still a pain in the ass!

Maybe a good writeup / pictures on a true dual exhaust setup (and problems / solution for routing this over-the-axle).
