1991 1LE Z28
« am: 29. Jul 17, 11:10 »
Hello,

New member here, but been around the F-bodies in Europe scene for about 10 years or so.  I currently have a 91 1LE that I bought a couple of years ago.  I put a LS1/T56 in it almost immediately after buying it.  It had already been modified before I bought it, and since it could never be original again I thought I just build it the way I want.  It had 33k miles on the body when I got it and sitting around 45k miles now. 

I also have a 97 Z28 that I bought cheap last year.  I was hoping it would be an easy repair, but unfortunately I had to take the whole motor apart.  The block is at Yankee Motors right now getting cleaned up and ready for reassembly.  Hoping to have it back together in the next month or two. 

Ken

Howdy Ken,
welcome to the club of so called "huge displacement freaks"  ;)
I guess, I've seen your Maro in Böblingen this year
Maybe we see us at the SNC Nuernberg somewhen

That could be I live in Erlangen, so meets in Nuernberg are easier than Boeblingen.

Hi Melle,  I think it was 2016.  I wanted to get an idea how fast it was, but unfortunately the timing equipment was broken the day I was there.

Thanks Ben!  I liked the old IROC I used to have during the FBodyEurope days, but this one is waaay better

A friend of mine in Hohenfels had an 85 IROC that he recently wrecked and sold to me.  It's at another friend of mines being disassembled, the engine and transmission is going into his 55 Chevy truck, but I'm planning to sell most of the leftover parts once I am allowed on the sales page.  It's too bad, it was a really nice car....

Welcome  :thumb:


A true 1LE with an LSx dropped in - what a machine! ;D  An LSx in a 3rd Gen could spark my interest in that generation again... the TPIs sound and look nice, but once you experience the power of an LSx it's very hard to go back to a TPI :skandal:  I tried and failed, LOL :ugly:


Hope to see you and your F-Body one day at a meeting, maybe Böblingen next year. I couldn't make it this year.






Ouch, so sad to see those last pictures :'(

The LS is better in every way compared to the old cast iron TPI that was in it.  Lighter, faster, and runs a whole lot cooler.  When I bought it the previous owner had put a modified LT1 intake in place of the TPI and had already put a LT1 T56 in it, so it would never be exactly original again.  I used the T56 in my 89 IROC to fix it and sell, and then I just sold off everything that came off from the old setup.  That helped finance all the little things that I needed for the LS swap. 

I'll try to make it out for the meet next year.  Is there only 1 F body meet during the summer?

Yes, there is only one dedicated F-Body Meeting in Germany which is organized by Chris. But there are many US car meetings where you will find scattered birds.

There are only two things I really like about the TPI: the intake, it is one of the best looking factory intakes I know of (hint: my avatar), and the sound. I do like that old, deep, rumbling sound of the TPIs that resembles big ship diesels :lechz: But technically the LS1 is better in every aspect. And the aftermarket is just huge.

Concerning mods to a rare car, I'm in the same boat as you are. If the previous owner didn't already heavily mod the car I would have never started it. But once you stepped into the dark side... ain't no going back! >:D

Hello and welcome

Your car catched my eyes at Böblingen motorworld because my iroc has same color.  I hope i can finish that project after 2 years of work in a small Garage.

More Power like your s would be nice but  i fall in love with the 305 TPI 

At least there  is the Problem with the "Oldtimer Zulassung "

Hi & ello Ken,

just want to through a "welcome" to ye, even i joined this forum after ye.
The blue 3rd gen is a real eyecatcher, very nice indeed.
The yellow one reminds me somehow to an old game called Destruction Derby ...

Greets,
Sascha

Thanks for the kind greetings DerSaarländer and Sascha!  Sorry for the late reply, but I've been very busy the last months.  Also I've been trying to get up to 10 posts so I can start selling a lot of my 3rd and 4th gen parts that I have, but my German is not really good enough to post very often, so I'll start a list of stuff I have here and start on Ebay kleinanzeigen.

I'll try to add pics later, or message me if you're interested in something and I'll email them.

2005 LM7 5.3 LS motor with automatic transmission.  170k miles on engine & trans, ran good before removal, came out of rear accident 2005 Chevy Trailblazer.  Small oil leak around pan gasket, comes with front accessories, uncut wiring harness, computer systems for engine and trans, key, fuse box, exhaust manifolds with sections from Y-pipe for easy swap, and body-side wiring connector for easier swap.

2500 Euros for everything.



Rear louvers for 82-92 Camaro or Firebird with mounting hardware

300 Euros



Back leather seats from 96 Firebird, not in perfect condition, but not bad.  1 small hole on each rear passenger seat.

50 Euros



Aluminum cylinder heads from 1990 C4 Corvette with 80k miles casting number 113.  Engine ran fine when removed.  Comes with Corvette valve covers that were painted red.

500 Euros



4L60e transmission from 96 Firebird.  Don't know condition, but the engine had 4 spun rod bearings and 2 spun main bearings, so I think that is why it was made for parts.

350 Euros

Aluminum cylinder heads from 96 LT1, same motor that had many lower end problems.  Heads look to be in very good condition.  Comes with valve covers

300 Euros

Steering column from 88 Firebird without cruise control.  Complete with steering wheel and no wires cut during removal.

150 Euros

Tail light harness from 88 Firebird

25 Euros

Engine harness from 88 Firebird with 305 TBI and 700R4.  Uncut

40 Euros

50 Euros

Roof console for T-top car with mounting hardware.  Missing leather bag , but comes with correct Camaro flashlight

75 Euros

T-Top headliner from 2000 Camaro needs to be reconditioned, but complete

50 Euros

T-5 shifter boot (One that bolts to the transmission tunnel)

50 Euros



That's all I can think of for now, and all prices are negotiable.

Thanks, Ken
