      II Much Fabrication LS9-powered 69 Camaro

      Hey guys,

      This has been a low-key project this year, and I've been a bit reluctant to share it. This is a local customer, with all the high-end stuff: LS9, T56 Magnum, DSE suspension, Anvil CF, and with lots of custom touches like a full ISIS Wi-Fi system, Cobra Misano seats, Dakota VHX gauges, MCI door and dash panels, etc.

      Here's a few pics to show you guys what we've been up to:

      Wow, John, that's a lot of stuff to have to pack into that engine bay. Very impressive, Is that the ECU I see mounted to the back of the inner fender? I'm struggling with location for mine right now. Between my thought to run the A/C lines and the heater hoses under the fender, a) I'm not sure that there's room for everything; b) I don't know if running hot hoses filled with water is a good idea right next to the computer and the wiring, and c) I wish that I had the guts to pull the fender off to work in that area, but my car is so pretty and all put together right now with trim and everything that I just don't trust myself to be able to remove it.... Anyway, looks like a great project!

      John, glad to see some pictures of this project, I have the same setup for the heat exchanger, I put my hood on and it is super close when you pull the hood latch to jamming it into the ac condenser, I am not sure if you have had the hood on yet but just a heads up. What is the notch in the right side of the firewall for? Looks good keep posting updates

      Nice small detail work. Small details all add up. wish my ac lines looked like that.

      Used to have my ls computer mounted in about that same spot,see nothing wrong with that.

      Traveling... In NorCal this week.

      Thanks all, I appreciate it.

      Yes, that's the ECM on the passenger inner fender, mounted using FabBosses, natch. The notch in the firewall is for the oil tank. I'll post more pics of that when I get back to the shop. We're using dual Mann-Hammel ProVent 200 catch cans too. I'll share more of that too.

      I think the hood latch is going to be fine -- but I've already made a bunch of mods on that. More to come on that too.

      Some photos of the ECM mount (using our FabBosses, of course), along with the oil tank and dual Mann-Hummel ProVents.

      Hey John,

      Great work as always.

      What are the things on the core support to the right of the radiator?

      Sorry Andrew, missed your question. Those are C6 fan controllers. There are two, one for each fan, and they'll be under ECM control for coolant and oil temp along with refrigerant pressure. (the refrigerant pressure sensor is located right by the fan controllers on the inner fender well).

      Thanks guys. The LS9 plus adding the ECM control of the fans really raises the complexity level. Add in engine oil cooler, power steering fluid cooler, the dual ProVents, and the plumbing will be a maze of hoses. The hard part will be bringing order to it all so that it isn't a nightmare to look at.

      John,

      Is the ECU package from GMPP? It looks like the standard LS9 kit using the E67 computer. If so, how do you go about wiring in the C6 fan controllers? I want to do this on my GTO that uses the E67 computer and the GMPP kit.

      Yes, it's the standard LS9 kit, but I can make the programming changes with HPTuners. As far as wiring it into the harness, look over the LSA Camaro thread from C6Z06. The pinouts and everything is in that build thread.

      Hi John,

      I looked through the threads from C6Z06 but didn't see any wiring diagrams... care to help a brother out and provide a link. Would be nice to know wire those up.

      Well, that explains why I couldn't find it, it was on LatG. Thanks John...

      The car is at the body shop, getting all snazzy. The build will resume in the summer when it returns to my shop.
