What is the top speed for a 1996 impala ss with the LT4 conversion?

My 1995 Impala has the modifications to get it up to power with the LT4. My car should be about the same speed. Depending on temperature and wind, I can hit about 152. Stock Impala LT1 should be about 144.

What kind of motor does a 1996 impala SS have?

The 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS is powered by Chevrolet's 5.7L LT1. It was basically the same as the LT4 found in earlier Corvettes but the pistons are Iron, and it is camed for more torque at lower rpm.

How much horsepower does a LT4 have?

330hp, 340tq

How much extra hp could you get by adding a 266 cam on an lt1 camaro and lt4 valve springs?

I cant give ya exact answer but the 266 is very close to a Lt4 hotcam. Lt4 hotcam with 1.6rr can net you around 30-40 rwhp with proper supporting mods.

How much horsepower will your 93 Z28 make with the LT4 hotcam kit?

about 305 horse.

I believe 330HP, for an SLP altered LT4 equipped.

How many 1997 Z28 were made with LT-1?

All 1997 z28 and ss were made with the lt-1 engine. They swapped to the ls-1 in 1998. Correct! However there were about 100 that were fitted with an LT4 motor which was a suped up version of a LT1

How do you make your 1994 caprice 4.3l faster?

Basically what I did was have a dual exhaust system made at my local muffler shop using 2.25 inch pipe with H pipe and two chambered (Flowmaster) mufflers, all for $260 and it bolts to the cats just like the stock Y did. I also added the K&N 5.7L FIPK cold air kit and a Granatelli 5.7L cold air tuned MAF sensor. It will dust a stock 5.7 V8 Caprice(not Impala SS). I also bought an extra K&N filter for the FIPK kit so you don't have to wait until you wash, dry and re-oil to drive it. Clean the dirty one and swap them out as needed. It turned mine into a little screamer! You can also add the LT4 Corvette knock module and sensor and have the PCM reprogrammed by for a little added extra!

Why does Dipstick comes out on C4 when running?

The PCV system seems to be inadequate to hold crankcase pressure that builds up. Many owners of stock, relatively new LT4 engines in C4s have claimed thiers exhibit this "dipstick popping out" behavior at high RPMs, so it's nothing unusual. The LT4s in particular have modified piston rings to prevent "fluttering" and letting excess blowby gasses through, but they get through anyway. I also have oil stains around my PCV valve itself, probably from high revving.

Replaced ac compressor and clutch on 93 lt4 corvette because the clutch burned out - it's burning again in less than 300 miles - mechanic says its electrical problem with inside ac panel -i dont agree?

you need to check and make sure you are getting a full 12 volts across the clutch coil (while connected to the clutch) you may have a bad contact somewhere and if you are only getting like 8 volts the clutch will burn out at a high rate because it is not fully engaged. make you check the voltage while under a load!!!!

How do you put a 454 big block in a Chevy s 10 blazer?

sawzall , alot of time, a welder and lots and lots of money but it would be nasty if you did it though would spin alot you may be better getting a 350 out of a trans am or camaro like lt1 or lt4 be lots easier and just as bad if you were to build it and not so expensive or ls1 or ls2 motors are the best way to go with a little money more than lt1 or 4 but worth it from 98 and up transam camaro and will accept all ls series parts all the way up to ls7

I just bought a 97 Trans Am and don't know where to turn first for performance parts or where to start at with performance?

it depends on what your looking to do and spend on it. i also got a 1997 trans am. and for the past two years been thinking the same thing. this summer im gonna spend about 700.00 on it. with a couple simple bolt ons, too give me about 40-50 extra horse. starting with a throttle body bypass kit, eBay 7.00. 5-6 hrp. k&n air filter. 58mm throttle body. new intake elbow. either new mass air flow sensor or just new ends havent decided yet, aftermarket maf of course. don't forget to swicth to sythetic gear, tranny, and oil oils, youll pick up a nice cheap easy 3-5 hrp. then ill probably get a good computer tuning. im also going with msd ignition set up, wires, blaster coil, and optispark. an other inexpensive way to add a good 10-15 hrp, is to get an electric water pump. you could also go the route of getting a new exhaust system, ill be going with either edlebrock headers or slp, as for exhaust ill be going with a borla catback. you could go a little cheaper and get magna flow, they make a decent exhaust. make sure when you purchase these items there made for 95-97 as 93 and 94 wont work without modification. you could just go to engine, quickiest boost easy is supercharger or turbo, also 383 kits if you get 383 and planning on putting in charger or turbo, get forged crank rods and pistons, for otherwise your running risk of blowing something, and make sure the kit is compression friendly with charger or turbo. ill be going with a 383 kit. with lt4 cnc machined and ported heads, with the lt4 intake get that ported out as well, then get a spunky cam kit probably from comp cams. id just get the lt4 kit but not enough bang for buck. the cam isn't much larger than the lt1, which is why im going with lt4 heads and intake but different cam. than after this type of work ill be getting a fuel pump, fuel regulator and bigger injecters.with this settup ill be running an easy 500hrp. without ever touching nos or charger or turbo. of course ill make charger friendly so im able to do that if i choose. these are a few ideas. don't forget suspension and drivetrian if you ever plan on having big hrp.

Taking out a fuel pump in a 94 firebird?

The by-the-book way (at a shop): Drop the exhaust. Drop the rear-end. Drop the tank. Access from the top of the tank and remove, replace, reverse. $600-800 (parts and labor) The do-it-yourselfer way (in your driveway): Pull back the rear liner. Cut a big hole with a cutting tool. Access from the top of the tank and remove and replace. Screw a piece of sheet metal over the hole. $150-$250 (for the part) There are better links and pictures on google somewhere as well. Do some research.

How does Chevy vortec work?

The word 'vortec' is the name of the cylinder heads used in Vortec Model engines in the year 96'+ The engines that use the Vortec cylinder heads are the 4.3L Vortec, 5.0L Vortec, 5.7L Vortec, and 8.1L Vortec. They were only put on Gen I small blocks. If they are any other size Chevy engines and still retain the Vortec name then it's purely a marketing name, the same goes is it is later than a Gen I engine. For example the new 4.2L I6 from GM retains the name Vortec, but it does not actually use Vortec heads as these heads were only made for OHV engines, and the I6 is an OHC engine. The Vortec heads are based on the LT1 and LT4 head after they were discontinued along with their reverse flow cooling design. It is simply an effect made in the head similar to a vortex to better atomize the fuel and air intake charge when entering the combustion chamber, it is not a different type of motor.

How do you replace a headlamp on a 1992 Corvette i can't get the headlight doors to stop in the halfway position?

to replce the sealed beam headlamps on a c4 corvette you must turn the headlights to the second on position and while they are still turning you must quickly return the switch to the halfway position (side markers only position) and this will freeze the headlights in a position where thay can be accessed. although this is inconvenient it is the only way to do it. (it may take multiple tries to get it into best position but now that you know the technique it shouldn't be hard. once you have the assembly in the halfway position the rest iis very simple. remove the 4 screws that hold the outer cover to the assembly and place to side. once this is done only 4 screws remain to remove to complete. remove the 4 screws from the chrome trim ring and the headlight will slide out. after removing ring and unplugging bulb, reinstallation of your new 6054 headlight is simply the reverse. best of luck felllow corvette owner:) -Coty- owner of : 84 z51 corvette 96 Lt4 corvette

Your 95 Camaro will only start if you hold the key over. what could it be?

This ones easy. I'm a Camaro buff. Just bought 92 RS with the Z front end. 25th Aniv edition t top v6 5 spd. (love your stick, they are getting rare) I also have a 95 drop top 6spd with a very special Lt4. Your ignition switch is bad or out of adjustment. the key cylinder is not it as in most cars. as the steering column goes through the pedal brackets on top you will see s bundle of wires going into a flat plug. this is the switch. There is a rod that runs from the key down the column to the switch. The bushings at the ends of the rod may be bad also. but unlikely. On the switch body, at each end is a 10mm (i think) nut. loosen them and turn your key to the ON or RUNposition and slide the switch toward the firewall, from your description, or away to center the contacts for the On or Run position. Have small hands or some band-aids ready. If yours is a stick, its really tight in there, but can be done without taking down the column. Good luck, its not that bad.

How much horse power does a stock 350 engine have?

There are more than a few variations of the 350ci Chevy motor. There are a couple of big-block 350's and several kinds of small block 350's. Other GM divisions designed there own 350 ci engines. Like the Olds 350 Rocket, which due to underestimation of demand was replaced, in some Delta 88's, with other GM 350's and this led to a successful lawsuit against GM claiming false misrepresentaion. From 1967 forward the output of the small-block 350 has ranged from 145 HP up to 370 HP. The Big-block 350's (348ci) introduced in 1958, for use mainly in large Chevrolet trucks, came in several different intake variations of three carburation types. Two barrell, Four Barrell, and tripower (3 two Barrell carbs) systems were used with output starting at 250HP (1958 2 barrell), and increasing to 350HP (1961 Tri-power) The highest output 350 I know of is the LT5 from the 1990 ZR-1 that was rated at 405HP. One of 5 350's (L83, L98, LT1, LT4, LT5) available in the Corvette C4 alone. It was designed by Lotus and built by Mercury Marine. All Aluminum with 16 intake ports and 32 valves. Tha depends on the year, and what vehicle it came in. The 350 Chevrolet has been produced for 40 years starting in 1967. You will need to be very specific to get a correct answer. Some have as little as 150 h.p. all the way up to well over 300 h.p. The 350 in Trucks was rated at 210 HP for the throttlebody injection versions (all EFI models up to 1995) Yes ONLY 210HP. (The 454 WAS RATED AT ONLY 230 HP but they did have 450 ft/lb torque). In 1996 they switched to a Multi-point injection set up which increased HP to 255. In comparison the 5.2L (318 ci) multi-point DODGE engine produced 235 HP & 285 ft/lb Torque in 1992.

Why cant I get enough fuel to keep it running1990 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 I-6?

You probably have a plugged fuel pump or filter, or a possible bad pressure regulator that is located on your fuel rail. I found this info in another Awsome Furom. I hope it helps you out. INJECTORS The following is a list of the injectors used on the 4.0L since 1987 along with their rated static flow: Model Year Part Number Color Fuel Pressure Static Flow 1987-1990 53003956 Black 39psi 18.6lb/hr 1991-1993 33007127 Brown 39psi 21.0lb/hr 1994-1995 53030343 Tan 39psi 21.0lb/hr 1996-1999 53030778 Grey 49psi 23.2lb/hr 1999-2006 04854181 Blue Tip 49psi 22.5lb/hr The injector flow rate varies as the square root of the pressure drop across the injector. The stock '91-'95 4.0 injectors are rated at 22lb/hr @ 43psi fuel pressure, so at 39psi they flow ( sq. rt.(39/43) x 22.0 = 21.0 ). For stock/modified 4.0 engines or stroker build-ups the following injectors can be installed. The flow rates are: Ford Motorsport 19.0lb/hr @ 39psi (Part no. FMS-M9593-C302) Ford Motorsport 24.0lb/hr @ 39psi (Part no. FMS-M9593-A302) Ford Motorsport 30.0lb/hr @ 39psi (Part no. FMS-M9593-B302) Chevy LT1 24.0lb/hr @ 43.5psi (Part no. 17124248) Chevy LT4 28.0lb/hr @ 43.5psi (Part no. 17124251) Accel 19.2lb/hr @ 44.1psi (ACC-150119) Accel 21.1lb/hr @ 44.1psi (ACC-150121) Accel 24.4lb/hr @ 44.1psi (ACC-150124) Accel 25.6lb/hr @ 44.1psi (ACC-150126) Accel 29.4lb/hr @ 44.1psi (ACC-150130) The '95 Jeep 5.2 ZJ/Dodge 5.9 injectors (Part no. 53030262) are rated to flow 24.6lb/hr at 39psi. The selection of injector size will depend on the estimated horsepower output, brake specific fuel consumption BSFC (assume 0.5), no. of cylinders, and the injector duty cycle (assume 80% or 0.8). The formula is: Injector size (lb/hr) = (horsepower x 0.5)/(no.of cylinders x 0.8)

What are the Chevy v8 motor sizes?

Many sizes of the Chevy V8s were made from its day view in 1955 at 265 ci to as big as 400 ci on the small blocks. There have been 4 generations on the small block side starting from the original small blocks Gen 1, LT Gen 2, LS Gen 3 and 4 and a new Gen 5 due out soon. The most popular are the 283, 302 (Destroked 327 used in the first gen Z28 for Trans Am racing), 305, 307, 327, 350, 355 (Bored 350), 383 Stroker (Stroked and bored 350), 400, 4.8, 5.3, 5.7 (LS1), 6.0, 6.2, 7.0 as well as others. Popular LT blocks were the LT4 and the Corvette LT1. Some popular LS blocks are the LS1, LS2, LS3, LS4, LS7, and LS9 found in the new ZR1 Corvette. GM Performance currently offers LSX small blocks with various sizes. Big Blocks were as small as the 366T used in work trucks to all the way to the tall deck 572 ci from GM Perfomance. Popular engine sizes are the Mark IV and Gen V 396, 402, 427, 454, Vortec 8100 (496), 502, 572. The early Chevy Big Blocks are known as the W blocks because of their unique head design. Displacements were at 348, 409, and also a 427 different from the later production 427 Mark IV BB. Merlin, an aftermarket company, currently also manufactures other CI variations of the Chevy BB.

What is the top speed of a 1996 lt4 Corvette?

180+mph. LT-4 181mph. Lt-5 "ZR-1" 165-170mph. LT-1 140-150mph. L-98 LT-4s were very under rated from the factory b/c of the upcoming LS-1 engine in the 97 vettes. The LT-4 made more power at higher rpm and even redlined 400 rpm higher than the LS-1! I have had C4 vettes with all of these engines, less ZR1. L-98 vettes are still today faster than most every passenger car on the road. L-98 engines make a lot of torque between 2500 and 3500 rpm. However, a stock engine will begin to run out of steam about 4300 rpm. My L-98 has a different intake and 1.6 roller rockers, 5000 rpm shifts are possible now. A stock LT-1 makes 50 more peak horsepower than the L-98, but at 1000 rpm higher. An LT-1 pulls hard up to 5500 rpm! However, for most driving, the L98 feels like a more powerful engine, b/c the torque of the two engines are about the same, except the L-98 torque is at 1000 lower rpm than the LT-1. In a 0-100 race or a 60-120 kick, the LT-1 will deffinently pull away from the L-98. Saying they are stock engines. Remember, with enough $ anythings possible. I believe the differences in the L-98 and LT-1 become more evident at speeds approaching 100 mph. Honestly, an L-98 begins to run out of steam around 100-120 mph. I have done 140+ in L-98 cars, they are NOT slow. An LT-1 vette will pull to 120 mph as easily as other cars to 60 mph. LT-1 powerband is smooth and linear, the engine pulls hard from below 2000 rpm all the way to the 5500 rpm redline. L-98 engines pull harder and the torque comes on very abruptly, but runs out of steam sooner. My 1989 vette, stock L-98, auto. would spin the tires between 1 and 2 gear change. My latest vette is powered by the LT-4. This engine delivers the L-98 torque, but more, and also delivers the LT-1 high rpm horsepower, but more! The LT-4 has about 20 major alterations performed on the engine. They are a real power house. The sound from inside the car makes you think you are in a Nascar car! You can really tell there is a huge difference inside. LT-4 were only available in 96 corvettes, and only with a 6 speed transmission. They are very rare and will sure to go down in history along with the L-88, and other engine packages from the past. The LT-5 engine is totally, totally different. Basically, a Ferrari style engine in a Corvette. Lotus designed, Mercury Marine assembled. 4 Overhead Cams, 32 Valve, All Alumnium, 16 fuel injectors, and a console mounted switch for regular or full power. Redline 7000 rpm.
