    Paul, have you guys looked into MegaSquirt controllers? They are available in kit form and have a big on-line user group with lots of info. Our Randal (Silver Buick) is a real wiz with it and is a heck of a nice guy - I know him in real life. Anyhow, I'll bet you have kids who could build it and there are all sorts of code and code-building tools so it might be just what you need. Lots of the users use salvage yard hardware and there's info on how to adapt junk yard stuff to do the tasks you'll need done. Seems like a perfect fit to me.

    This is great stuff, BTW. MS has been used in Engine Masters builds and other top-end projects.

    There's even a chance that the makers of MegaSquirt (can't remember that name offhand) might donate or give you a discount if they know about the project - can't hurt to try.

    Dan

    My friend Gave me a 5.3 that was sitting outside with no intake on. The students pulled it apart to find it was not a complete loss. The piston rings where stuck but the crank rods and pistons where all good. It did have a harness but it is missing the injector plugs and half the coils and injectors. The cam bearings are wiped and cam didn't look to hot. The intake valves where corroded pretty bad but will still do a valve job and reassemble the motor with students for good practice. I found a ly6 6.0 with real high mileage but for $1200. Guy said he will hold it for the week so we can try to sell some stuff on craigslist. I want to put a manual behind it and keep the car fuel injected. I want to know what you guys think on best management system for it. Cost is the biggest factor. The motor comes with a ecu and pedal and i can do the harness with my students. Reprogram the vats out and hp tuners?? maybe another company? What is the best way to go with fuel system? Have a good stock tank i can sump. I have the greatest facility but we lack funds. Looking at modifying a stock oil pan and looking into some leads for engine mounts and headers.
    Thank you for all the comments, i do jump on this and read them to the kids to show them this site. We spent a hour after school the other day just reading everyone else build to try to answer some of our questions we had.

    You can see some of the before and afters shots. I just want to say how impress i am with these students. They are like clock work after school and never late. These young men and women range from the ages of 14- 18. I have had some of the older students mentor the younger kids which really makes a kids day. We have a few students that not that great on the hands on but found a talent behind the camera lens and their job is taking pictures and b-roll for the media department when they are not thereClick image for larger version

ID:	1135652Nice to see this many kids stay after school and be working on something instead of sitting in front of a tv. We tell them all the time, the more you work the more you learn..

    we where supposed to get a 6.0 but last minute it fell through so we got a 5.3 that has a hole in the oil pan. We are going to use it as a mock up and it is good for these guys to pull apart a modern ls engine. These two guys are from the diesel program and this is good for them to exspand their knowledge.
