Re: my 4.3 cam/intake/head build

Well I have not updated this in a long time. Well I have had a few problems but rite now she is running good. Right after Christmas we are going to tune it onthe dyno. It just has a safe tune in it now. Still running alittle rich. But here is the finished exhaust. First the tail pipe then the Elc cut

Re: my 4.3 cam/intake/head build

Oh and ur running a cat.
I got those same headers, no cat and the Hooker.
Im sure the cam makes a big sound difference too. So did the heads have to be machined at the guides for the lift on the 270 cam?
What did he do to the tune to get the idle smooth and whats the AFR?

Re: my 4.3 cam/intake/head build

yea i have to have a cat here because we have to meet emissions inspections, it's tuned out but is there lol. and you dont have the machine the head at all to run this cam i have, you can run the comp-cams push tubes: 7808-12, comp-cams 787 retainers, comp-cams locks: dont rember the part number but they are 7 degs, and ls6 springs. you dont even have to pull the heads but i did so they could be worked, and different valves were installed, and i dont know on the tune, my buddy builds ls motors for a corvette racing and other other large race groups so he knows his shit, in that video it was just a safe tune so i could work all the bugs out. right now i am driveing at about 14.3 afr and WOT at about 12.5 afr but he was playing it safe till we dyno it, i have been staying out the throttle because it's running so rich. he did a little playing around on it the other day when we were doing data logging on the street and now my idle is at 575 and it sounds mean lol

Re: my 4.3 cam/intake/head build

well i have most of the small problems taken care of and have 4k on the engine now and i hope get it the rest of the way tuned soon, we did a little driving around town tuning because the dyno has been tied up with there race cars. got the idle down more and little better air-fuel mix, still alittle rich on the top end but i drove to layed out at the part this weekend and it was a 580 mile trip with no problems, i got 23.6 mpg and that was a lot of mountain driving. and i have a heavy foot lol.

here is a quick video if the idle.


got a little pin striping done too



then had a little problem and now have no roll pan

Re: my 4.3 cam/intake/head build

You ended up getting 23.6mpgs? That's crap. I only get 22 with my mostly stock 4 banger.

Yep and after tuning should be better so it's not running so rich. And is your 4banger a auto? My dad has a 2.2 5 speed and gets close to 28 all stock

Re: my 4.3 cam/intake/head build

My bad, I met a lot of people this weekend forgot some names haha. Yea I used to own that blazer a couple years ago. It was in pretty bad shape. I did what I could with it when I had it but it still needed a lot of work to be safe on the road.
