  1. Alan, I have not found the schematics. I backed off for a while, so haven't been searching. I wanted to create ECMs for the V8's. Is yours damaged?
  2. Hello Everyone, It's been a long time since I have posted or replied to anything. I hope this finds everyone in good spirits! My question is does anyone have a full schematic of the v8 ECM? I have the EMM sections, but this is not what I am looking for. Any help is appreciated.
  3. GKP, I know you did the fog lamp modification for aesthetics, but I am wondering how function are the LEDs? Does it provide as much light or more then the old halogens?
  4. For those who don't know, Lotus has discontinued manufacturing of the Turn signal stalks. So, I am on a search for a new one. I removed the stalk and it has GM Eaton stamps. However, I cannot determine a part number. Does anyone know its cross-reference? Thanks in advance.
  5. Hey all! I hope everyone's driving season has been great. I have a few questions. 1) Is anyone running increased boost on stock head bolts? If so, how much boost are you running? 2) What is the maximum boost the stock head bolts can handle? I'm doing some preliminary work on some modifications. I am planning on doing motor work and trying to decide if I should go with studs or stock head bolts. My concern is accessibility. I only plan on removing the engine for my piston upgrade. after that it will be cylinder head work, but I want to do it in-car. know that if I install studs, I will need to almost remove the engine to get the cylinder heads off whereas with stock bolts, they can come off with the head. However tensile strength of the stock bolts are in question as I an planning on running high boost (of course, determined by the temps of the exhaust manifold). Any insight will be helpful.

    Need v8 ECU

    All, I fried my ECU and need one. does anyone whave a v8 ECU for sale? I will entertain an ECU/Engine combo as well.
  9. Guy, I'm noit sure if it has been added to the wiki. I started this thread a while ago. You could start at the beginning where the majority of information lives and scan through the thread for additions. I need to update the original posting though. When I get some time I will do that.
  10. John, Quick question... Do you have the rubber gaskets that are supposed to be under the spark plug cover? These are supposed to keep the water from getting to your spark plugs.
  11. Is your friction plate facing the flywheel correctly? There should have been a stamp on the friction plate that says "This Side Towards Flywheel"
  12. Where do you live? Perhaps someone close to you can come and help out.
  13. I've replaced them with S/S lines and Earl's/Aeroquip fittings. Don't know if you guys can get those in the UK. I can put together a "kit" to sell and install instructions (without pics) to sell.
  14. Do you have an after market stereo system? Is it a vendor other than Alpine? If so, it could be that your power wires for your stereo, amp, whatever is ran next to your speaker wires. This will cause that type of whining. Is your stereo on while you are driving? if so, turn it off and see if you still get the noise.
