    bought a 95 z28...got a couple questions

    Hey guys,
    So today i go out and get a 350 lt1 z28. It runs great it has an auto transmission with 323 gears i believe, has a "shift modulator" which i dont know how to mess with, k&n intake, twin throttle body *edelbrock*, straight exhaust, and more.

    It is really clean with an alpine stereo and an optima battery.

    I got it for real cheap so of course there are problems and drawbacks lol...

    1st problem- no t-tops
    2nd problem- ac blows but it doesnt blow cold(what could it be?)
    3rd problem- the shift modulator or whatever the guy called it sucks for highway driving b/c im doing 3k rpms doing 70mph is this normal? he said that on the tranny there was a regulator but thats how he set it up...
    4th and last problem- the speedo doesnt work..

    any help from you guys will be very appreciated...

    thanks

    You are correct, at least you started by getting rid of the Ford and buying a Chevy!

    A/c on them sucks, but a can of freon in it, see what happens, itll prob leak out and youll have to put an new A/C on it, lookin at the 700 range.

    you said A4 with 323's right? mines an A4 with 3.42's and 70mph is about 2500 RPM's for me, youve got higher gears and higher RPM's with the same speed, outta get that checked out

    no t-tops as in, its a hard top? or theyre missing, if missing, we have a sponsor that can set you up with new ones

    Try typing lt1 forums on the search engine you use. You will find some useful info.

    1st answer = Buy T-Tops at one of our sponsors, a local wrecking yard, Ebay, or craigslist.

    2nd answer = There could be a leak in the system, the ac compressor may be out, or you just need the system recharged.

    3rd answer = you probably have a higher rear end gear ratio.

    4th answer = can't really help with this one. get a shop to tell you whats wrong, then go and fix it yourself.

    I would fix it and sell it. Then go and upgrade to an ls1.

    I would have the tranny looked at. If the speed sensor is bad your tranny might not be locking up, which would put extra wear on the torque converter and giving you slightly higher cruising rpms. That might be why the speedo doesn't work. I don't think 95 had a modulator because it is electronically controlled.
