    Full frame off resto

    "Keep in mind that when these engines were developed and validated, the recommended Premium fuels were 97 Octane" I didn't realize they did it with 97, good info to know.

    Full frame off resto

    Looking good Terry. Loving all the fabrication work. It's gonna be one clean Ty when you're done with her. I'm constantly stripping stock stuff off my Sy. Let me know if there's anything you're looking for and I'll keep an eye out.

    Ol' Brute

    I watched the video, that's a pretty neat kit. The two calipers if painted or powder coated would really pop if the wheel choice was big enough to show them off.

    Turbo 4.3 into 5th Gen 'Camino

    After going through your entire build thread, I have decided to take some advice off of it and put my inline fuel pump on a dedicated circuit. I don't need to be blowing any ECM fuses or wreaking any other havoc. I had been thinking of doing it all along, I knew it was the right thing to do, but...

    That's bad ass. I would love to do a disk brake conversion on mine.

    Josh's Syclone build thread

    I finally found a tube style fuel level sending unit that will work with my 10" deep fuel cell. This one is 9" deep so it will leave me a bit of reserve when it shows empty. Plus it is the old GM style with 0-90 ohm range. I got it from Tanks Incorporated, they have a whole selection of sending...

    Josh's Syclone build thread

    Fuel cell is finally installed. Went with a 20 gallon from Rhodes with a drag sump. Decided not to cut the bed for sump so I installed 2" square stock instead and mounted the cell to that. Traditionally, I would have mounted the pump and filters on the frame but external electric pumps have one...

    WHAT KIND OF INJECTORS

    I imagine a lot of guys on here, who know sytys way better than me will recommend going over everything with a fine tooth comb...state of tune both hard parts and ecm prom set up, checking vacuum lines, verifying balancer hasn't slipped, verifying ignition timing, fuel pressure, and data logging...

    1992 Sonoma GT 26,780 ORIGINAL MILES

    After seeing what the possibilities are with that teal and silver Sonoma GT build I have really come to like these trucks, they have some real potential. Very clean indeed.

    Ol' Brute

    Lookin' good man! Nice to see that you're making progress. Looks like your downpipe isn't as tight of a fit as the syty's, it's one of the things I hate about this truck.

    new Typhoon owner in europe, not for the purists

    Crazy to see one with a speedo in kilometers. You definitely picked up a clean, unmolested one.

    Josh's Syclone build thread

    Lol, Thank you sir. Slowly, but surely the truck is becoming more and more my build and less and less someone else's unfinished build. I am getting to know every nut and bolt on her. The phrase "while you're in there" never rang home so true as it does with this truck. But, I'm enjoying it.

    180° tstat

    I am attaching a quote from an email from my buddy at work that has the Syclone just to clarify about the Stant T-stat and 160 T-stat usage. "Careful with the 160 thermostat, although I'm running a new stock radiator and severe duty clutch fan with an aftermarket water pump (not a better setup...

    180° tstat

    I ran a 160 degree for a few months, it started running warm in stop and go traffic on a 100 degree day (3/4 of the way up gauge). I have an aluminum radiator and two electric fans. I had considered the old tale about "over circulating". Not sure what transpired but I have since put a 180 T-stat...

    Josh's Syclone build thread

    Won best truck award at the car show. Was super happy about that. Had some problems tuning, ran out of fuel pump as I suspected might happen. Going to be installing Fuel cell, frame mounted pump, pre and post filters, new stainless lines for feed and return, and also am re-ordering new 80 pound...

    2 center caps needed

    Hmm, you're right, i don't see them any longer. They were made by the guy who i bought my Sy from. My truck came with a set. I know he had the machine shop do a larger run to keep cost per unit down. He may have sold out. Depending on how far down the rabbit hole you want to go, you can try...

    2 center caps needed

    There are billet reproduction center caps available on Ebay. If you're picky about all 4 matching then you may need an entire set.
