excellent lt1 and ls1 info links


#1

Rob/Shoebox has put together a technical data page that really rocks… pictures of many of the parts that mystify people showing the locations, etc. And some great “how to” info…

Take a look, and bookmark it for future reference… sooner or later you are going to need it…:D.

ROB/SHOEBOX’s LT1 TECH PAGE

Some other good sites for info on the 4th Gen F-Body:

FAQ on the 4th Gens, differences from year to year, tech questions and common problems, basic mod info:

A similar list of specs, but they get sloppy on the LS1 cars.

A site that offers “technical lectures”, pointed out by “jrhalli”:

CYLINDER HEAD “LECTURE”

here’s another good technical information source (not specifically f-body). It’s Jim McFarland’s site. They used to charge for downloads but they are doing it free now. The latest “lecture” is “Cylinder Heads & Power”. You can get it at:

http://www.n2performance.com/lecture3.shtml

http://www.fbodyaudio.com/articleviewer.php?article=4thgenfaq.tech – 4th gen audio FAQ

or go to their main page www.fbodyaudio.com

The FAQ has great info on every combination of things you may want to do/install and even how to disable the stock theftlock with or without the code! Pay the dealer no more

This is some good info for an LT car. I wish I would have had this before I started posting half a million questions on the Fbody Hideout page, lol.

Packed with some really good information and yes as said one is going to need this info one day or another and the images involved in the link really prove to be useful in understanding technical terms and details even to a new comer.
