    just bought a 98 ws6.can i spray it?

    hello everyone.im new at ls1's but i absolutely love em!anyhoo,ive been looking for a c4 vette because i cant afford a c5.i ended up finding a 98 ws6 on CL for cheap cheap!! bought it 4 days ago and been driving it to work ever since.its got 133xxx miles.its a 6 speed.with a flowmaster.sounds grrrrrrreat.anyway its been in a wreck,salvaged title.it still drives great though.my question is this..after i get around to tuning it up like changing plugs,fluids,the noisey idler pulley etc,do you guys think its still healthy enough for me to add like a 100 shot of juice?just dont want to throw a rod or something.thanks

    Welcome!!
    You should be just fine spraying 100 shot. Also sounds like 3rd synchro is heading south. Any other symptoms with third gear?

    no not really .everything else works pretty good.except for the coolant leak coming from the pasenger side frame rail.are there coolant lines running up the passenger side?for the heater core i guess?anyway,i need to pinpoint and fix that leak.

    you can spray, but would be a good idea to tune the air/fuel to get the best results.

    Yes, the CEL will come on if you delete the CATS

    Not sure about Hypertech, contact FROST (Member/tuner/sponsor) for best answers


    I have a 98 also so here's my .02 cents for the best bang:

    Longtube Headers
    Off Road Y-Pipe
    Mufflers - Some like Magnaflow, some like Flowmasters, you pick what you like, CAT-backs for states that have tough emissions
    LS6 or FAST intake manifold
    Aftermarket Airlid (The only SLP* product that works, avoid other SLP stuff, many members here have a bad taste from SLP)
    LS7 Clutch kit

    Before you spray do yourself a huge favor and get Sub Frame Connectors, upgrade suspension, and check your rear end out. Our cars biggest weakness is that 10 bolt rear end.


    If you get LT headers, delete EGR and Air system, and get a mail tune by Frost.

    Another good piece of advise is to drain all fluids and replace.

    First off, you don't need a tune to run NOS.
    Your trans is a T56 and the trans need to be removed and dissassembled to fix a synchro.

    thats what im thinking.i will purchase the hypertech after time,but if i stay under a 100 shot, with a wet kit i think i should be fine.thank you for all the input.so the SLP air lid actually flows better?thats the only way i see me buying an air lid.not gonna buy it fot the "SLP" thats for sure.anyway,im gonna contact ponce's and see what theyll charge me to pull tranny.so it looks like what i need to upgrade is my exhaust.what kind of performcae gains are these ls1's getting with the ls6 manifold?

    LS6 Intake makes a HUGE difference WHEN you have LT's + a Cam to provide a right balance of parts. I just installed the LS6 Intake this week (I have LT's & TSP 224R +918's+Corsa Catback) and it is VERY noticeable.......SOTP's difference is there also ESPECIALLY in the UPPER RPM range......hope this helps.....Welcome!!
