This is my new daily driver and sensible car. Please visit my S2000 and Monte Carlo pages for more info on my other cars. Yes, I do still have them and no, I never plan on retiring them. Enjoy! 6.0 L V8 - 395 hp 400 ft-lbs - 2007 Saab 9-7X(hp and tq at the crank for stock LS2)3.4 L V6 - 325 whp 350 ft-lbs - 1995 Chevy Monte Carlo Z342.2 L I4 - 443 whp 363 ft-lbs - 2004 Honda S2000 First of 2012 Update.I purchased a set of LS3 heads. I'm planning on putting them on with a ZR1/LS9 camshaft and L99 truck intake. I wanted something with stock like idle and without the need for aftermarket springs or pushrods. There are other cams that will make more power, but none that I know of that meet those needs. I'm still planning on supercharging the Saab at some point this year, but I'm not sure if it will be a MagnaCharger or the HOB Procharger kit. I'm leaning toward the HOB Procharger kit. There's also a strong possibility my transmission will die this year. If so, I've been looking into both a 6L90E swap and a 4L80E swap. I'm leaning toward the 6L90E swap kit from TrueBlue Motorsports. August 2011Today I installed a transmission cooler from PCM4Less. I figured that since the car has an extra hundred horsepower and I do a lot of towing, it was worth protecting the transmission. The install wasn't too difficult, but there wasn't quite enough adjustability in the brackets for a perfectly smooth install and it required drilling a hole in the car. While I was working on it, I reset the compression and rebound on the coilovers to the specs recommended by KW, raised the front coilover spring perches 1/2 turn (the suspension bottomed out on some of the roads around here), and put the factory wheels and tires back on (I want to wear them out so I can justify replacing them).In the past month, I also replaced the HORRIBLE PAC SWI-PS with an Axxess ASWC. The PAC SWI didn't work the majority of the time, even after soldering in a capacitor and reprogramming multiple times. The Axxess ASWC has worked perfectly from the beginning. If you have an aftermarket radio and need to keep your steering wheel controls, I can't recommend the ASWC highly enough.I've also moved to Pennsylvania recently. Even though it has an engine swap, the 9-7X passed the emissions tests and state inspections without a problem. March 2010Finished the LS2 install. The engine is in, the computer is reprogrammed, all of the fluids have been refilled, and it's running great. I just got back from a 1000 mile trip and had no problems along the way. I have tried a pair of tunes. The modified one feels awesome, but the stock-based one averaged almost 20 mpg on the highway (19.7 mpg versus 17 mpg). I did 100% of the install. There is no custom fabrication requited, it's 100% bolt-in. I still would recommend having someone do the install and tuning if you can get it done for $1.5k or less. While doing the swap during the weekends, my car was down for almost two months.I also added a Vette servo while doing the swap. The 4L65E seems to be holding up just fine to the new power.06/09/2009I just finished installing LS1 efans in place of the stock mechancial (electro-viscous coupled) fan. It clears up a TON of room in the engine bay. This is a very common mod for the Trailblazer SS. Dyno charts show anywhere from 10-20 whp gain from the removal of the stock mechanical fan. I used a kit from PCMforLESS to install the fans. It includes mounting brackets and wiring. You also have to reflash the stock PCM. It is setup for a PWM fan output to the stock fan. The LS1 efans are either 100% on or 100% off (discrete). I took my stock bin file and copied over the data needed for eFans using HPTuners. Then I reflashed the stock computer. Currently, the PCM is 100% stock except for the eFan programming. Note the IEATSRT8 intake in the pictures below.
