Pedal Options?

Im sure there is a version of this that could work but didnt experiment further with it.

In a cost savings effort, has anyone tried the Corvette ETC pedal? It's $100 from Speartech instead of $400 for Lokar pedal and control module.

Corvette ETC Pedal


Yes and there are side by side photos in my Defender 50th LS2 / 6l80 Build At the time the mods looked easy but the pedal has to be shortened and changed from a RH to LH offset and the vertical angle changed. During this process I managed to damage the sensor due to a stupid mistake with the vice. I ended up buying the Lokar Peddal as I wasn't game to keep shipping them to OZ



On a side note, I have just ordered my dash from Dakota Digital and was wondering if anyone has used the GM Drive by wire cruse control kit... Cruise Control for GM LS Drive-by-Wire Engines

There are pictures of that project on our Facebook page.
When it is 100% done (its about 90% done right now) I will put it on the ECR web site so all can see it.

Nick's parts and idea made it possible, so big thumbs up to him. After having driven this truck, I am having a really hard time trying to find any argument for why a Rover V8 should live in that space.

Belt Clearance

Nick,
Is this the expected belt clearance at the water pump? Brand new belt and it appears to be less than 2mm clearance.

Looks correct. You used the smaller Dayco idler pulley next to the alternator?

That's cool. You should get a nice Raptor steel binnacle to put it in.

Dam all this stuff gets me thinking.........fast stuff.
All the gear you guys show is sweet.
keep all the information coming, does anyone know of someone doing the Ford 5.0 coyote.
I just like the blue oval/ green oval.
I like the power in the LS3 and the down low power looking at the numbers.
I think to pull the motor and just wire the puma dash with a painless and then the Ford or Chevy Factor wiring. I have the puma dash and the MT82 so the transfer case should match the ford stuff.

UL1700, can you provide a source for that gauge cluster like vendor, URL and price? More importantly, Nick, will your harness work in such a way that the Dakota digital or UL1700 fuel gauge portion works with some fuel pump whether factory, aftermarket or combination aftermarket pump with factory sending unit? I've got my motor out and an L94/6l80e slated to arrive in 4 weeks. I assume the gauge is can bus based. Please provide any info guys.

google reverse search is pretty bad ass. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/dak-vfd31008b

Is there enough room to leave the OEM info panel in the dash with the Dakota series III? It's 4.25 inches tall.

Amit,

The Dakota Digital gauge setup and the engine harness are mutually exclusive. You can use the CAN bus or discrete wiring for the fuel sensor. Any calibration. However, for the EVAP I/M (California) to work correctly you have to wire the fuel level sensor to the E38 and then get the gauge reads from the CAN bus.

The setup allows you to pick your sources for the gauges. For example, speed, CAN bus, VSS, or GPS.

You need the BIM-01-2 CAN bus module also!
