LS1 V8 , engine, 350z swap, build

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone  for me this has been a bit of a dream for sometime , i will let you know as I progress from week to week i might not answer all the questions straight away but I will try my best.  

 The kit for Ls1 has been purchased ,made by (ISR PERFORMANCE ) made in the USA and can be purchased from tarmac sportz in the U.K. and Torqen

 

 Parts in the photo show parts purchased for the build. 

The engine is a 5.7 v8 normal found in a corvette all aluminium block, and weight difference between the two engine's  is ruffley 98 kilos. I have opted to have the engine completely rebuilt with new parts and uprated to hopefully around 450 bhp and 475 torque  ,on the engine side you can spend  loads more money and have a monster or less up to individual tast - and budgets. At the moment the engine is being built so not finished yet. 

At home i am starting to strip the car down repair bits that are needed and some that don't that's enough for now ill be back soon

Andy. I mentioned Wassos build to you during our many chats. He had his done at the z shed and the wiring loom was the big headache. See you soon mate.

Andy. Once you've done that you will have to upgrade the I C.E. so you can hear it!

Just recently I have taken the engine out as you can see the engine bay isn't too bad but there are a few spots of rust and and tidying up is required. 

With this in mind and I have now turned my attention to Kyle Russell and is doing the engine build and his is counterpart Dave who's also doing the wiring loom for the build one of the original photos I put in the the build thread was of a completed engine by Kyle Russell.
My engine will be a LS1 5.7 litre normally found in a corvette around 1999 to 2002 an early engine producing around 350 brake horsepower
Kyle will be taking the engine completely apart and rebuilding it with new parts as I intend to keep the car for a long time the camshaft will be from an LS7 .
The heads will be from a later version allowing greater flow of air fuel all the internals will be updated and the crank will be reground and new new bearings throughout
Hopefully by the end of the build the engine will then produce close to 450 horsepower with the equivalent in torque but it will be dino Run and we will find out the exact figures on the rebuild

 this video shows the The fly by wire 350Z throttle pedal working with an LS3 throttle body on an LS1 engine . This allows for better throttle response and delete the  throttle cable

Last video is of the dino Run producing the safe map for the engine before it gets installed into the car. I say safe map this is where the engine is not tune to it ultimate Power just so that it can be installed and run with safety in mind, and then when the car is finished it gets tune to his potential
