  1. Spent some time getting the dash setup, mounted the digi display into the original cluster with my spare speedhut fuel gauge and keeping the factory dash indication lights. Started on the body loom rewiring made up a complete new front loom now waiting on parts to arrive to continue. Also made up a lower dash console which is going to house all the switches maybe a head unit (gonna be road legal after all) and in behind the fuse box, relays and windscreen blower
  2. main things to look out for on a donor car is knocking or ticking noises LS1 lifters are known to tick from about 150-180k on the clock (heads off job to replace), and what does it drive like it should be fairly responsive and rev freely, watch out for doughy or laggy shifts in the auto, clunks or long delay as it goes into gear/ reverse check trans fluid it should be nice and clean and not smell burnt, dirty or burnt smell indicates burnt up clutches/bands, dead o2 and knock sensors are common and will make the throttle response doughy
  3. talk to trevor at holden diagnostics and get the SOE scan tool package, its dedicated holden LS scan software, 4l60e are a but rubbish in stock form also know as box o neutrals if its got a few ks on it or been given a tough life, the th700 is the 4l60e mechanical predecessor which is a 4 speed like the 4l60e, mainly say that route as they had the transfer case options, some of the later chevy had 4x4 4l60e with an electronic control on it but are know to be problematic, 4l60e commodore box is fine if you just want rwd i think from memory the 4x4 box has a different tailshaft and h
  4. If your gonna go auto look into using a th700 or even th350/400 from an early chevy blazer or Silverado 4x4 they have a transfer case on the back of the auto box, and will bolt up to ls block with a crank spacer for the torque converter, either commodore for front sump or f body camaro for rear sump boy retain oil filter as standard on the sump most the fabricated ones require external setup, iv done a heap of various ls stuff and lots of wiring and ecu setups if you got questions about what works
  5. have seen one done recently that i did the engine loom for, 2005 2wd no body lift needed
  6. tech post about changing the primary input resistor on the tacho input to the cluster, the sr will have a low voltage tacho drive and the tacho is expecting a coil negative collapsing voltage pulse, this modo should get your tacho working, done it to my VK from link g4 output and a corona with 3sge beams ecu
  7. thats crazy money for a DT connector, i can supply the 12 pin for $30ea, (my suppliers RRP is $37) downside is need special crimper for DT pins
  8. flick me a pm with your rego (yes i know i sound like ripco/supertards but thats the way their online system is setup), il look up what pan pacific can supply thru my account. Edit just realized OP from 2019, but offer is there of any OS people in need of auto elect parts
  9. your gonna need one of the MSEL style crimp tools for those, the jaycar ones dont crimp the wire enough and over crimp the seal, results in wire falls out and seal breaks off
  10. Pulled the engine out of the falcon and got all the turbo goodies bolted up, been setting up the ECU to take the Fg throttle and injectors and converting the tune file with HP tuners while on nightshift, should have the engine wiring finished off in the next day or 2. Getting rid of the falcon body soon so will get the wagon back on the hoist and look at getting the engine in and mounted
  11. those jaycar ones are ok iv got a couple but not the greatest for small terminals or small wire, this is also a very good japanese made crimp tool that does a wide range of open barrel crimps https://www.fishpond.co.nz/Lifestyle/Hozan-P-706-Open-Barrel-Crimper/9999511936801?utm_source=googleps&utm_medium=ps&utm_campaign=NZ&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIydH36NP87QIV2AkrCh3BpwtqEAYYASABEgIxbfD_BwE
  12. https://www.msel.co.nz/epages/motorsportelectronics.sf/en_NZ/?ObjectPath=/Shops/motorsportelectronics/Products/TOOCRIDEL this style for the brass tab terminals, even the basic ones from jaycar are ok have a look around online can get them cheaper from the likes of amazon aliexpress etc, iv never found those generic ratchet style crimpers any good alway either too loose or deforms badly, unless you spend $$$ on rennsteig professional crimp tools and dies. would recommend looking into deutsch DT and DTM if you want sealed connectors
  13. Hopefully that sorts the issue out with the miss firing, gotta love the Chinesium quality see problems all the time with the ls1 o2s and knock sensors
  14. Time to chuck up a post about my latest project since iv just started pulling apart the donor car, starting with 1 VR commodore wagon the old 3.8s rod came knocking and put a window in the block. Iv stripped the interior of that, to make way for a 6 point sfi cage and rear tubs to the rails to accommodate wider rubber and a parallel 4 link 9", to be commenced early/mid 2021, Now the fun part the bf falcon some of you may know from such shenanigans as palmy/fielding 2020 swapmeet is giving up its engine for the repower to be backed up by a th400, now let's see what the stocker na can do w
