Could it be the connector that used to plug into the valley cover? If you did a DOD delete, your new valley cover should not have a spot for that connector.

Re: OFFICIAL Master Production List - All Years

It's incredible that you got this data. I think most people thought we would never know the 9C1/9C3 breakdown. Now we have that info plus color breakdown. Thanks for sharing it.

Re: OFFICIAL Master Production List - All Years

Do we know if this information is accurate? The 2011 numbers, for instance, do not match what has been published elsewhere. Previously, it was thought that there were 880 2011s, but this says that there were 1591. http://www.goodcarbadcar.net/2011/01/chevrolet-caprice-sales-figures/ What's Nitrate S...

Re: air intake

I'm pretty sure Maurice is right. If the capped hose goes to the passenger side valve cover, it is definitely the clean or inlet side of the system. You really should connect that hose anywhere after the MAF but before the throttle body. With it capped, you have basically no air flow through the cra...

Re: Bench racing L77 stop end swap

Re: air intake

I'm not sure what's available for the factory air box. I'm using a modified Roto Fab that pulls cold air from the faux vent below the left headlight and actually seals to the hood unlike the way it comes. My IATs with this setup are only a few degrees above ambient.

Re: HP Tuner Question

A wideband is a type of O2 sensor that needs to be installed in the exhaust system so the air/fuel mixture can be tuned. It interfaces with the tuner and records air fuel ratio along with all of the other parameters that you select to log. The factory O2 sensors will not work for this. If you only w...
