I have a set of LT1 Energy Suspension Poly motor mounts for sale. This set is special as they've been "clearanced" by BlaineFab and I so that they'll actually fit ;-). Easily worth an extra $100.....

These are virtually brand new and have only been used for about 3-4 track weekends until the the motor popped. I'm punishing the motor for it's bad behavior by swapping these for solid motor mounts when it goes back in so these must go.

I believe they're $60+ new so maybe $50 shipped?

I also have lots of stock LT1 components for sale if anyone has specific needs feel free to drop me a note. Need to do some inventory reduction.

Bunch of extra parts I need to clear.

Should be of interest to this board:

- K&N Cold Air Filter system- Fits 93-97 for sure, not sure about LS-1. Filter has about 30k mi on it and has been cleaned about 2x. Metal meshing is slightly chewed up on one side from installation and removal but would not impact functionality in any way. $100
- GTP6 Cams (have 2)- Similar profile to the CC306 Cam but shuts the valves more elegantly vs. slamming them shut like the 306 does. Designed by Craig Gallant at GTP, ground by Elgin, very high quality. These are $450+ new. Neither of these have more than 1500 mi on them. I'm only selling as they're too much cam for my AI motor and I'm going another route when I build my AIX motor. I'm asking $250 each. Both have the deep center bore to accept 96+opti and long dowel to drive it. Dowel can easily be shortened to work with 93-95 opits.
- (2) Genuine GM Opti's- 1 is brand new, bought it to put in the race motor, it stayed on long enough to break it in- ~600mi and then we converted to a dual synch distributer to work with the XFI so now I don't need this unit- $150. My spare has ~44k mi on it and was in working condition when it was removed. $50 take it. Both fit '96 LT-1's and are the vented model.
- OEM GM Oil cooler- sandwich style fits between the oil filter and the surface of the block where the oil filter generally seats to the block. $30 obo
- (2) GM Coils, both have 44k mi on them and work fine. $20 or best offer
- (2) brand new GM O2 sensors that have been lengthened to reach bungs in the collectors of long-tube headers. These have 1500 mi on them and have only seen pump gas (not been ruined by leaded race fuel, etc). Could easily be shortened if so desired- $100 for the pair
- (2) GM Delco Knock Sensors- 1 has 45k mi, the other has 600mi, $35 for new one, $20 for used one. Both work fine.
- Ed Wright programmed 1996 ECU- set up to run with the GTP6 Cam set-up. $300
- Stock ECU- rear O2's turned off, rev limiter raised, set up for 4:10 rear- $100
- 1996 MAF- Screen removed, good working order with 44k mi on it- $100 obo
- Performance plug wires for LT1- I think they have about 25k mi on them, good shape, pretty sure they're Moroso- $25

The rest is probably uninteresting to this board:

- All stock interior components- grey interior of '96 Camaro- too much to list so if you need something specific pls e-mail
- Stock Steering column with in-tact air bag- $90
- stock black hood (local only) $150
- stock black rear hatch with glass (local only) $250
- various stock engine parts- block, heads, intakes, fuel rails, injectors, etc- make offer, local pickup only

This stuff will also be listed on Craigslist locally and possibly E-bay, first come first served. Thanks for looking!

Slightly used, no more than 2k mi before this motor broke a valve and I did not re-use the cam in the new motor. Took this Cam to the machine shop to have it polished for re-sale and they told me it did not need polishing, it checked out A-ok. This unit has the long dowel pin and deep center-hole so it should work for all makes/models of LT1's. If you have an OBD1 car, simply cut the dowel pin or replace it with a shorter one.

If you are not familiar with the GTP6, it's Craig Gallant's custom grind that's similar to a 306 Cam but it is not as hard on the valve train as he tweaked the ramp rate to close the valves more gracefully (as it was explained to me by Craig). Specs are as follows:

Duration @ 0.50" 235/242 Lobe C/L 355/370 with 112 deg CL. Translates to 568/592 with 1.6RR.

Unfortunately I did not dyno the motor with this cam and only had a couple passes on street tires at the strip but with horrible launches (due to tire spin) on a full weight car it ran in the 12's at 112mph prior to much custom computer tuning.

The cam's powerband is roughly from 2500-7000rpm. Progressive power gain from about 1000rpm idle up to 3k rpm and at 3 it comes on hard and strong. Pulled hard for me up until around 6500 and tapered off but that was mostly due to tune and rocker stud flex, etc. Should taper off at 7k and allow you another 500rpm beyond that of decent power.

This cam was close to $400 new, custom ground by Elgin Cams here in CA, not some poor quality overseas unit. Would like to get $250 for it or best offer.

This is a frame mount low profile hidden receiver which came off my 1996 Camaro. It installs easily and tucks up under the car nicely. It should clear just about any exhaust type. I have had at least 3 different exhaust configurations work just fine- stock Z28 exhaust, aftermarket dual pipes, and a 4"mufflex single exit on the left.

Great addition to enable you to tow jet skis, utility trailer with your tires to track days, small trailer, etc. Installs very easily with 6 bolts (included).

I paid $200 for it, asking $95 OBO. Available in San Mateo for pickup, can look into shipping but could be pricey. If you are not local and want shipping estimate you can use 94403 as the zip it will ship from.

PM with E-mail if you'd like pics.
