    Oil pressure sender *pic*- LS6 installed!

    Well, I've just installed my LS6 intake today. It was "forum bought" and I painted it in my spare time. I went with the gloss black since I plan to do color-matched FRC's.

    This was my first intake install- took my time and NO OIL PRESSURE SENDER BROKEN! In my research on the forums here, I kept seeing everyone having that problem. My issue was that I couldn't find (or maybe didn't look hard enough) a picture of where this stinkin sending unit is in relation to the intake.

    So, here you go....

    Looks good. What kind of paint did you use? My only worries would be how well the paint adheres to the intake.

    Here, check this out- this is pretty much all I did.

    Painted my intake...


    I wanted to do it myself and be cost effective while still being satisfied with the end result. I must say, it was worth the time.

    I've got some other ideas I think I might pursue along with Fuel Rail Covers. I would like to clean up the battery area and fuse boxes on the other side. To do this, I'm considering fabricating a sheet metal cover for both sides. Just keep watch in the posts for it, you'll see.

    I fab'd up a flip-out I-pod dock for my center console outta aluminum. This shouldn't be much harder....

    Hell, wutam I sayin- I still haven't finished my speakerboxes in the hatch! Made a beautiful pair of 12" sub boxes outta MDF with cleavage like my hood. My intentions were/are to fiberglass a horseshoe in the hatch around the boxes and color a charcoal metallic to pop with the interior.

    Guess I'll have to flip a coin......

    Thanks for the feedback all!

    Well, I haven't really got up on it much but seems good. Before the swap, I already had LT's, ORY, Borla catback, weld-in SFC's, LID, high flow KN filter, and free mods. So, this was kinda just to let it breath a bit better. I need to get my ORY welded up though cause I've got a tick from a couple leaks down there.

    any tips on how to avoid breaking the oil pressure sender?

    Well, after I disconnected the bolts, electrical connectors, forward connections (the only things still connected at that point are at the rear of intake). After we broke the seal of the intake, we slowly GENTLY moved it forward, then rotated counterclockwise to disconnect the small line and elec. connector attached to the intake. We left the big vacuum line going to the brake booster connected. The vacuum line going to the brake booster I'm sure is where the trouble is as it snakes around the oil pressure sender. I left it connected to the intake and had a friend feed it around and out as I gently manuevered the intake forward and to the driver side (again counterclockwise). Also, the back 4 bolts of the intake under the cowl: I used a bit of masking tape looped around the shank of the bolts under the their heads and taped them in the up position to the fuel rails. This kept us from having to worry about holding them up as we pulled the intake out.
    Hope some of this helps.

    I definitely notice more on the top end in the power gains. Love it!

    I noticed when I got in the pedal a bit today that I had to change my normal shifting habits (m6). Definitely a marked improvement!
