Nice ride guy. I thought it was an L67 at first but looked at your page and saw it's only a 3.4. Didn't know there was a vortech kit for it!
What HP gains do people get from those?

Looks like a fun project if you can do the fab work yourself. If not you'd be better off doing and l67/l32 swap, it would be much easier and cheaper.

The fab work is already done, the only fabbing i need to do is cobble together some rubber couplers for the plumbing once i get it bolted in

Wideband isnt in yet, oil pan needs to be tapped. Got a welder?

cant you add a T to the oil pressure sending unit for the oil instead of tapping the pan. thats what zzp does for the turbo kit isnt it?

You can use that for the feed and i need hardware also, but the oil has to be dumped back into the engine through the pan, above the oil level, with a hose going as vertical as possible to help gravity... Need to write up a shopping list for the hardware store... i need like 10 bolts 2 fittings 2 hoses a couple couplers and a bunch of clamps...

It can be tapped but i still need a bung welded for the wideband... and if im doing that i might as well have someone weld the a nice bung to pan... one less set of threads to leak.

thats an easy one for an exhaust shop to do on the car. but depending on which WB you have you simulate the narrowband with and it will run the wideband as both. I'm doing it with my LC-1 right now. i know the plx will do it too, not sure about the AEM ones though.
