General Tech / Re: Best approach for retrofitting AC to my LS1 FD3S

With a RHD the lines are quite a bit more complicated but there is no reason to run anything other than the GM version compressor. Pick up a mastercool crimper, about $160USD, and build them yourself. I know shipping won't be great but if you cannot source them in the UK check out coldhose.com.

You can run reduced barrier to help with routing but make sure you get the right dies for the crimper.

It's not that it's AN. I would just NEVER use a single flare on brake components. Maybe it's just IMO but all the OE's use double flare. If it's safe enough for them to not get sued into bankruptcy it's what I'll do.

I would avoid AN completely if possible. It's just not meant for that pressure. Double flare everywhere is a must. Aluminum is just too soft on the fittings.

Second the quality flare tool. I used a cheap one prior and for a couple lines it's fine. For a project like yours get a quality unit that can be held in a vise.

100% double flare every fitting. The copper nickel line is super easy to work with and perfect for brakes.

Have you thought about a no regulator closed loop fuel system or using a fuel flow meter on the regulator return? Thinking of ways to optimize pump flow.

Just because.

I even checked voltage drop across my long run. Was only .3v. 2/0 is completely nuts. lol

You should be able to get away with 4ga if using high quality welding wire which I'm sure you are. It starts my 440 12:1 just fine. I've not noticed any hot spots on connections after turn over sessions while tuning.

Of course you did and yes you do.

Very nice. Now back to Blakes usual overly complex shenanigans.

I found 2.26 and 2.47's. Trying to decide is 2400RPM at 80MPH is tolerable.

Trans would be about $1500 shipped for an E9x.

What are you using for the frequency? Any noise from the low max freq of the megasquirt?

I found these since my omrons get hot just from being on. I may have to pick up a couple. 200Hz seems a little low though.

Feel free to join in my nerdism.

$37 for the 18A and $71 for the 30A. The 18A would be plenty for my fuel pump. It pulls 13A. Would need the 30A for my fan though.

I looked at the gears again. Even if I could find a 2.26 or 2.47 rear the 7th just doesn't work on the e9x boxes. Those gears are super rare though. Early 80's F150's. The 2.26 isn't terrible though. 2400RPM at 80MPH with a 25" tall tire. Plus 40years of metallurgy in strength. That statement just made me feel old.

Super jealous of finding a box that cheap and that close. I WILL have to have one shipped.

Chisel then out huh. Damn. I think I'd be okay on stock firmware. Not been to a dyno yet but I'd say between 450 & 550 rwtq in a car that's 1500lb lighter.

I shall revisit the gearing of the e9x but I'm sure I'll still get an F10.

Remember when I said I could drive the car year round...

Did Domi tell you what they do with the old control boards? I'd be curious to put an e9x board into an f1x trans and have the maxx ECU control it directly via can. The mechatronics are the same it looks like. Just the controller is different.
