Have acquired the engine, exhaust and coil overs. Looking for a pristine c6 cradle and steering along with some of the lessor parts. Work to begin this spring.
I appreciate your opinions and advice. The XLR forum seems to provide very good info. for me. Thanks much. RobhertThats not good for a car to run that long not moving unless you have a large fan to blow air over the engine. i would look for the coolant leak to start. All it takes is to pressurize the raditor cap and either see the leak or it will push water into a cylinder that will steam or skip when it starts. You can also get a chemical test to see if exhaust is getting into the cooling system. Either way the car running hot can damage the head and or headgasket. If it was in a shop when that happened, any damage would be on them. As far as mileage on a test usually three to five on and off driving cycles are all that is needed to confirm a code is gone.
That is my understanding. We want all the parts before we start the job.Front cradle isvthe same on all xlr and 427 corvette. Email me and ill give you a big heads up. [email protected]
I dont think you can get pms until you have posted a while
Actually it is my mechanic and his staff that has the smarts. He is a long time corvette mechanic now doing Lamborghini repairs.Hey I emailed you also. if you could give me some advice on LS swapping my XLR. I've done many LS swapped including an xj jeep and many classic cars. I'm wondering specifically about motor mounts, torque tube, bell housing, etc. The ECM looks standard gm stuff and shouldn't be an issue to tune. Thanks so much.
