Awesome work and congrats on getting it done so quickly,the flashing F in the AC readout usually means low on freon or you need to do the battery disconnect trick!

I did and it's still there. I think it's signaling an error because it can't communicate with the original ECM, I'll just have to live with it.

Anyways....


Took it to work today, happy to say it made it with no problems! cheers I swapped out the battery with one of my many spares and the starting issue seams to be gone now. All I can say is holy crap this thing moves!
I looked into some of my issues last night, the passenger rad fan's motor is bad so I dug out my last spare and installed it. Same thing! I checked the motor and there's no resistance across the terminals on both of them. How I managed to buy 2 bad fans is beyond me but it's time for a trip to Autozone for a new one. I checked the fan on one of my other cars, those are around 30 ohms. I also took it for a ride with the AC on and it does work as long as there's air flow over the condenser. I cobbled together an intake using 3 different intakes and it works for now, pics to come later.
Next up is finding a shop that will do the exhaust work. And as a side note, if anyone plans to paint an iron block with rustoleum grill paint, be prepared for the car to smell for a while when hot Cool

Sometimes it feels that way. The roadie sedan confirms it's not my house lol. BTW, this guy has 6 Roadies and an SS with 8k on it, among others lol.

I can post up a picture of the pinout for the cluster harness if that would help

For now I'm going to drive it as is, down the road I'd like to do a cam once I figure out how to choose a cam. I'm taking the wagon to E-town Saturday to meet up with some SS guys for a drag race day. Can't wait to see what this thing can do.

I would be interested to see where you ran the wires for the cluster. I am glad that I will be able to keep my awesome 9c1 instrument panel with this, though.

Very Happy

A few updates:
The car is in the shop now getting it's exhaust done, really hoping it gets done before the fest. I'm doing 2.5" the whole way.
I took the car to the track last weekend and raced with the Impala guys (ECIRS). Their a great group. The best I ran was 15.1, I'd been told a stock LT1 wagon can do that so I need to do some work. I hope the new exhaust an a good sized air cleaner will help a bit.
Finally, noticed an odd coolant leak, it's seeping out of a head bolt, never seen that one before. It's slow enough that I'll just leave it for now.

Providing the exhaust gets done on time, I'm planning to bring it to WF  Very Happy

Time for a long overdue update.  She's still pulling strong and I've logged about 8K miles on the swap (a lot for me on a single car).  I finally finished the exhaust (only took a year and a half) and went with side exit oval tips.  Love the look.


Also FINALLY got doors for the car.  They came off a 92 Olds at the yard.  The ironic part, the rear door ended up being off a white 94 Caprice woody lol.  I'm glad to have finally found these things.  They look great (pic to come) but fitment is meh.  The B-pillar is pushed in more than I thought and really need to be pulled out.  A 5lb slide hammer does nothing against this heavy gauge steel.
Doors off, getting ready to install.


Also did some suspension upgrades as well as install my spare hitch that I was tired of tripping over.  Ordered the Moog cargo springs for the back so I can eliminate the manual monroe air shocks I installed.  Those shocks fit poorly and leak bad.  With the springs I installed 9C1 spec police shocks.  The car rides nice and firm now, love how it handles.  I also replaced all the rear brakes.


And finally, the next upcoming thing has arrived for the car.  The 5.3l is great and all, but there's always room for more power.  Being the 5.3l and the 6.0l share the same parts I went for more displacement.  Picked up this engine from an 03 Express van.  The plan is a total rebuild of it, then eventually swap it into the car.  All the wiring is the same so it's a bolt in affair.  The only other things I'll do is upgrade to an LS6 intake which I have but never got around to installing.  With the 6.0 I'll be replacing the tranny with a more stout 4l60e that I had rebuilt by my transmission guy.  This thing should really move!  The base specs for that van is 300hp/360 lbft torque.

Nice look forward to seeing it soon. Also, if you didn't see in another thread, I do have OCC cladding (more than one set), lmk which pieces you need and I can bring with to Daytona for you to see them.

Small update on the swap.  The 6.0l is still on the stand in the garage, someday it'll find its way into this car.  I replaced the AC bracket before WF Florida this year with an updated design that moves the compressor higher and over towards the left of the engine some.  It gives the coolant tank some space and doesn't hit it anymore.
The trip to and from Florida was about 3,400 miles.  Car didn't miss a beat.
