You can buy a whole Running Caprice with LS1 engine and 4l60e transmission between AED5k ($1.3K) to AED12k ($3.2k) in here.

If you want something stronger then you can go for a newer Caprice. They come with an L98 engine and 6l80e transmission. That will give you 361 bhp, 391 lb-ft, and 6 speed automatic transmission for about AED25K($6.7k) for the whole car. Or you can find the engine and transmission in the Junk Yard for AED16k ($4.5k).

Some people think that an L98 is inferior to an LS2 but that can't be further from the truth.

the L98 got the same LS2 block. So, it is basically an LS2 engine. But there are three main differences:

1- the L98 uses L92 heads; which are identical to the LS7 engine.
2- the L98 uses L76 intake. the L76 got bigger ports and larger runners. (basically identical to ls3 intake)
3- The L98 also comes with a bigger 90mm throttle body and 39lb/hr injectors.

The things that makes the L98 produce less power than an LS2 are the cams, exhaust, air filter, and tune. Swap in a hotter cam, Spring valves, headers, cat back, reprogram it, and you are looking at 500HP+ and 460lb-ft+ !

I got my 2001 LS1 drive by cable Caprice for AED 11k with 75k km on the clock and drove it around for 8 months before I finally tore it apart
Engine, transmssion, pcm and some A/C fittings were reused ... the rest was sold for AED 2500 ( I could have asked more ).

While the engine was out the shop swapped LS6 valve springs and new valve seals in and a new waterpump .It was a good opportunity to replace the weak composite head gasket for a MLS gasket and to inspect the cylinders/pistons. All good.
I had to relace a stuck injector later though ... so a cleaning job while doing the swap might be a good idea too.

Amazing build!

So for the 2006 Jeep PCM to run the Tach, it only needs the crank sensor signal from the Novak Tach Emulator?

is it a 4 wire hookup?
power
ground
gm input
jeep output

Thanks

Yup ... basically that's it... 4 wires to the Novak Tach Emu Box!
But note ... the input to the box coming from the GM PCM is a "tach out" where usually a gauge is driven ... and the Box transcodes THAT to a Jeep crankshaft position signal which now goes to the Jeep PCM ... et voila ... dash gauges complete!

So far I have been too lazy to mask my stock dashboard MIL led ... because Jeep PCM is really confused now ... crank is turning and non existing rest of the engine

not for the 2005/06 pcms and Novak boxes ... some older Jeep pcms require additionally the cam shaft signal and have seperate/different part no's for the Novak box.
Novak does send wiring instructions which cover the different Jeep model years and boxes.

Thanks! I've been trying to figure out if an 05-06 Tach Emulator will work for the 4cyl also. The NGC computer (in 2.4 and 4.0) uses the same crank pulse for both so I'm good to go I believe.

it is alive and kicking

latest "mod":

I had to remove my rear Bilstein 5160s (for 3" lift) due to one of them having lost all pressure and most of the oil ...

Until I decide what is going to happen next (replacement of one shock, rebuild of the broken, complete change to something else ) I just dropped a pair of STOCK JK gascharged shocks in the rear (freeby!).
Their expanded lengths do not unseat my coil springs ... and compressed they need an inch more BS extension (in total 2.5").

After putting them in I immediately noticed a improved ON ROAD ride with less body roll and a dryer yet not more uncomfortable response in the rear.

So I decided to go for another premiere last weekend : my first ever ROCK tour in one of the omani wadis. (Wadi Khamis for the googlers)

Non Poser Shot:
noposer.jpg

... and I liked both: the "new" rear shocks AND the terrain
it is more "demanding" than the dunes and one of our friends snapped the inner ears of his hardened chromoly front axle shaft (he was on 37" tires on a built JK ... but no matter how built a JK D30 can be ... not enough for 37s )

after a weekend trip to my favourite playground at the periphery of the "empty quarter" (Liwa) I come to the following findings:

1. rear Bilstein 5160s for 3" lifted TJs were to soft (from factory) on the compression damping side! My actual stock JK shocks in the rear were by far BETTER in controlling the rear!!! I explored speeds between 50 and 70 mph on non even non sandy desert ground ... and despite getting airborne from time to time all was in check! (no typical donkey kicks back there from bouncing off my bump stops)

2. Only a custom tuned shock is a good shock ... Brand name is not enough:
A properly set up JKU with King off the shelf (with C/A) shocks and King hydro bumps was doing a wild dance in front of me ... until I took over hehehe

3. If I want to revive my rear Bilsteins I am going to retune/rebuild!!!
(waiting on the 3" FOX/savvy coup to come end of the month though ... pretty sure now a wayne tuned FOX stock mounted combo for 3" suspension lift would give me even more!)
