If you want to provide me with one, sure but I'm not dropping 10k on a motor. Also the ls7 "dry sump" doesn't work so well either way.

Hopefully I get ahold of my motor before then but I'll keep it in mind and let you know. Thanks for the offer.

Never heard that. I know for a fact it is not true for club racing (SCCA and NASA) and a quick search of FIA cage rules didn't find anything about it either.

Old school drag racer tech said no curved door bars. This was before the internet though.

Got the 100% E-85 compatible fuel system mostly done today. Still waiting on the new Deatschwerks fuel pump.

Old fuel lines out


Teflon lined stainless braided line assembly:




Tucks in above the stock fuel tank.


New line running up the trans tunnel, still need to secure it to the body.

Oh sorry I didn't introduce myself...

I did a ls1 swap 6 years ago. And built the first e85 powered supra using a flex fuel sensor all tuned and controlled by the ecu. If there's 2 things I know it's ls1s and e85. I'm just trying save the guy trouble in 99 gm had no reason to use a stainless element as e85 wasn't even around. If it's paper have fun with clogged injectors. I searched the Internet n ls1tech but couldn't come up with anything. Good day.

I did a LS2 swap 7 years ago (yes before they even came out) and the first E100 supra (but not controlled by an ECU, it was carb'ed), plus my panties don't bunch up.

A smart first post would be:

This GAME right here is rough as ****
These hoes out here about the bucks
These fools out here afraid to bust
I have no fear, afraid of what
And in five years I'm comin' up
Fools talk real loud but don't run up
When we come through they'd run it up
We still right here so what the ****
