|BustedYJ||I've read quite a bit on a here and I'm a little confused. I have a Dodge Gas NV4500 that I'm trying to run behind a 5.3 in my YJ. I have GM bellhousing 15998496 and I'm not sure that it will work with an external slave cylinder. It just has an opening where the stud should be mounting. I've been looking at the Novak external slave kit but would be open to other ideas to have a good hydraulic clutch setup. Also, Is there any specific year of 6.0 to find a flywheel and clutch setup for or just anything early 2000's?|

Also, there seems to be a lot of discrepancy between posts about the optimal temp to run these motors at. Most guys who are running them in factory configurations/vehicles swear that the optimal operating temp is about 98-102F, but heaps of guys swapping them run them much colder.
I was surprised when I got my ECU back from LT1swap.com and he had my fan triggers set to 94/92 and 96/94. When asked about it, he said that's what most guys request. Then when I had Lewis from Diablewtune do my first tune, he set the triggers to 91/89 and 89/91.
Both of these seem rather low and I'm definitely seeing decreased fuel economy since the tune (by about 3-4mpg).
What do you guys say?

Oil pressure pid (LM7)
Well shit. So I picked up a Diablosport InTune and got it all setup today. One of the things I've been scratching my head about since day one with the 5.3, is the Oil Pressure PID. I've asked around lots but no one has an answer and most guy insist that OP isn't reported over OBD on the 04/05 ECU. Well, they're wrong.
The InTune managed to grab the correct PID just fine. Unfortunately, DS are ultra-proprietary dinks and won't tell anyone what the PID is, but at least now I know two things:
1. The ECU does in fact report Oil Pressure over the serial bus.
2. I have oil pressure!
Yes, dumbass move, driving around for 2 or 3 months now without knowing if I have OP, but whatever.
So that said, Imma pose the question again because I'm sure someone, somewhere, knows the answer.
What is the PID for Oil Pressure on the LM7?
Engine type/year: LM7 5.3 (2005 Sierra S1500 4x4)
PCM: 2004 LM7 5.3 (2004 Sierra S1500) - SERVNO: 12586242

Thanks for the reply, I am still researching alot of this. I am planning on the vette regulator and will make sure the upgraded pump isn't internally regulated.
I confirmed that both the stock and the 255lph pump I posted above are non-regulated. Also here is the output specs:
|06-23-2015 04:01 PM|
Yea. It'll get you home. ECU won't be happy about it and it'll take a few minutes to stabilise your fuel trims, and you might stumble if you stomp on it. It'll definitely run better if you get rid of the 45psi regulator (if it's even built into the pump).
Also, I didn't see any spec on that 255lph regarding psi. Make sure its not regulated and add the reg in line.

I plan on using a rear 93 F-150 gas tank with my LS1 swap into my 4runner. The tank comes with a fuel pump for Ford EFI engines. I believe it is rated for 125 LPH @ 45psi. I will be replacing it with the 255lph pump shown here:
HFP 255LPH Fuel Pump Assembly *Rear Tank* Ford F250 1990 - 1997
My question is, will the stock ford pump be usable as a trail spare even just to limp out?
I've previously been left stranded by a fuel pump, so I prefer to have some sort of back up. The pump I intend on using is:

The 4.0 block is 5/8-3/4 from the bell surface.
That would make the LS tight at best and no go at worst. Sure it wouldn`t be that big a deal to move everything forward a touch but at least we all have some numbers to work off from.

The original comment is based on what the AA rep said. Think he was trying to over simplify things and cover his ass.
Looking at my own YJ the centerline is damn near on the fold from the firewall to the tunnel. The frame started out as a 4 cylinder.......
The question is then what is the distance from the bellhousing mating surface to the furthest point in the back of the engine ?
< bell mating surface >< to the furthest point in the back of the engine>
Suspect what the AA guy was trying to say is the amount of room between the bell surface and the heads was less on an LS then on a 4.0. Which if true would put the heads against the FW.
The only way to be sure is to take our own measurements. I have plenty of 4.0blocks and heads to measure off of. Anyone want to volunteer doing the same for an LS ?

Maybe I am just completely missing something obvious but it should work out. Hell you gain more room in the front of the motor with the 5.3 so you have more to position everything right where you want it.
|06-19-2015 01:47 PM|
There is an NV4500 and the depth of that AA bellhousing puts the centerline into the tunnel.

I have a Jeep 5 speed trans behind my 5.3. My Trans is in the stock location of a normal jeep. Stock shifter boots, t-case shifter and stock trans mount.

Edit: That radiator fits the Mark Vlll fan perfect.

|Skorch||Your welcome, the hard part wasn't the shape, it was finding them with the different size ends to match. On a side note the engine is impressive and I have not wheeled with an automatic till now. Pretty happy. Going to the Rubicon tomorrow. Pictures from the Hammers. Mark|

I have an LQ4 so mine will be different but thanks for posting. I might try that upper hose, it will at least be a starting point.
