  1. So I figured out what was wrong with my car and posted it on my instagram a while back when it got worked out. Well I didn't figure it out, I took it to someone who knows what they're doing with LS motors. Short version = the PSI wiring harness was hooked up wrong (by PSI I assume). Long version = May 2018 I was recommended to a guy who races a fox body mustang with a 90 something mm turbo LSX on the weekends and is apparently good with LS style motors. He plugged the car into his HP tuners program/laptop and was immediately curious as to why the o2 sensors closed-l
  2. Yes that's the correct code, figures i miss typed it. Thanks I'll look into that item. Gonna be tied up for six months in training before I can though. The car has a stand alone PSI aftermarket harness with 2 o2 sensor plugs. I think a sensor wire may have been extended, I'll remember to look into that down the road. It's my first venture into anything fuel injected or LS and I don't know much a lot about motor repairs much less electronic wiring so it has taken some time getting familiar with the car. I didn't build the motor or do the swap. There was an o2 sensor
  3. Cool thanks. I'm friends with a snap-on guy so he let me borrow one of their Mobius(?) scanners which looks like it can do a ton of stuff. I'll findings when I get a chance to mess with it.
  4. Thanks. Is there a Ohm sensor brand or meter you recommend? I’m not familiar with them. I’ve already replaced both o2 sensors with the newest Delco ones so I think they’re right. They had different part numbers because one has a longer wire than the other but that shouldn’t matter right? I THINK this issue started because when i got the car the sensor was mounted in a way where the wire rubbed the frame and it wore through the wire. Even after replacing them both I still get this code. I forget which bank and stream the more comprehensive scanner showed as being dead. I could use ad
  5. Thanks for the tips So I changed the spark plugs to new E3 plugs and got an all new set of MSD 8.5 plug wires and installed them, they were the same plug wires as before but one was different and damaged. I cleared the P1054 o2 sensor code, fired it up and the car ran great. No hesitation or anything. I took it for a ride to the grocery store and things were great. On the return trip the check engine light came back on however the car seemed to continue to perform well. I stopped at the end of my street and let it rip before I got home and all seemed well. The code was the same
  6. Hope everyone is well. I've learned a bit since my last post about my issues but I'll explain where I'm at. My car 280z with a 99' firebird LS1 and a 4L60E trans is constantly getting getting a P1054 error code (checked with a diablosport intune, i only use it to check for codes, I need a more comprehensive scanner). When the code/check engine light comes on the car seems to lose power/struggle and miss when I hit the gas, just makes a bunch of racket, it gets around ok if I don't hit the throttle too hard. I made it to the gas station about 2 miles from my house today and the sympto
  7. (Sorry on my phone) Rebeckah you are right about the diablo handheld storing tunes, it will actually let you build and modify them too. I messed with it a little but decided not to install anything new because i immediately hit acronyms i didn't recognize. Either way i'm not going to do it myself for the first time. In reality this diablosport tuner was free but i'm not pressed to use it. It's possible the previous owner got it because of its flexibility, i think he wanted to do as much as possible himself. I think he maybe installed a stock tune and modified it himself. Rebeckah you ma
  8. Hi guys, This fuel injection stuff is new to me... I'm trying to get my car's fuel injection/computer checked out before Ocean City Maryland cruise weekend this weekend but I'm about out of time. The car runs ok but it's not 100% and I want to at least have it checked out. The motor is a stock 99' firebird LS1 and the previous owner gave me his Diablosport Intune. I tried to mess with it a weekend ago but didn't really get into it. I spoke to a local shop Friday and apparently a newer guy answered the phone and said they could plug it in and check out it. I get there t

    Im back

    Bring it to the Church of the Holy Donut and if I get out of bed early enough I'll see you sometime. I remember your Z from a few years ago. Neat to see the history of that car here.
  10. Hi guys, To call this car MY build would be a blatant lie but I just bought the car from the last owner who did a really fantastic job until he had to let it go. The car is almost road worthy so it's at the shop getting some stuff done that I can't really do at my own home. I'll give you some details of the car and where I'm at as well as a few questions I have. I'm new to the Z car world so I'd love some comments and suggestions. The car is a 75' currently with a 99' firebird motor and what might be the matching (rebuilt) 4L60E transmission. It has a new PSI (performance s
  11. Hi guys, New to the Z world, I just bought this car from a gentleman in Illinois. Seemed like he really cared about the car but had to let it go. I'm not sure if he was a poster on this forum but he did mention it. It's a 1975 280z. Most of this is quoted from the seller's listing. There's a lot more to say but here's the meat and potatoes. 1. 1999 GM LS1 from Trans Am with 118,000 miles, GM unlocked computer, PSI Conversions harness New water pump, oil pump, timing chain, starter, rebuilt injectors (Oside Tiger), fuel pump (MSD), fuel regulator, (Corvette regulator
