I have a 2009 G8 GT Auto and am wanting to know if anyone has bought an crate LS3 and installed it? do they directly hook up electronically?? What mods must i make if any other than a good tune? Thanks John
Pretty sure this has been done a number of times, and as far as I know everything is electronic the same except for the DOD plug, but that will just stay unplugged.
Here are a couple physical differences.
- PCV system is slightly different. L76 outlet is on the back of the drivers side valve cover. LS3 comes out of the valley cover, near the passenger side of the throttle body. easy change over.
- water pump is different, need a GXP upper radiator hose
All that said. Why buy a crate engine? Quite expensive compared to redoing the L76.
Hello everybody, I should start off by saying this is my first post to the forums and I’ve been searching on this topic for 3 days now and can’t find the answer I’m looking for. I’m doing an LSA swap in the near future and I’m ready to order the cam and dod delete parts. I am considering the BTR...
Does anyone know a suitable replacement for the brake booster hose (hose that connects the rear of the intake manifold and the brake booster)?
92159715 (ACDelco 176-1697) has been discontinued and the hose for the Caprice (92260836) and SS (92285802) don't seem to work for our vehicles.
This past weekend, I tried to use my G8 just to found out that when turned on, it shutdown itself down after a few minutes. When I checked DIC display, found the power reduced message in it. I the scanned it with my handheld device and found a Crack Sensor error p0335. I erase the code...
Looks like part number 12600525 has been replaced by 12674588, but the pics of the 2 items appear different. Can anyone confirm that 12674588 comes as pictured below?
On the flip side... do I need this/can I even use this with ATI balancer?
