Turn Key Running Engine & Transmission Pallet – How We Ship!
Cleveland Power & Performance is PROUD to be the world’s NUMBER ONE supplier of late model high performance domestic part car and truck turn key running engine & transmission drop out pallets! We do all the guesswork for you and provide a complete package that arrives at your location ready to run (just add fluids!)
In this blog we will demonstrating how we prepare your turn key running pallet for shipment, domestically or internationally!
The first step after the pallet is sold is to fire up the driveline for one final check of all the electronic and mechanical components. Then we drain and inspect all fluids as pictured:
Next we pull the fuel pumps, inspect all the wiring, make sure the connections are good on all the plugs. All the included parts and accessories are placed on the pallet, and it’s off to our freight department. From here, we fully surround the crate with 2x4s, box all the loose accessories, and securely bolt and strap any loose components.
From there it is given a final look over, and prepared to be loaded via fork lift onto the freight truck! A reinforced pallet and full bracing insures your turn key setup arrives undamaged!
If your package is going international, then we fully surround the crate with heat treated OSB to conform with international shipping standards, and load it to go to the international carrier!
What’s the difference between a Camaro SS L99 Automatic / Camaro SS LS3 Manual / and a Chevrolet SS LS3 Automatic?
The 2010-2015 Camaro SS comes factory equipped with either a LS3 Manual or an L99 Automatic – both are similar designs, but they have some differences. The main difference between the two is the LS3 produces 422HP and the L99 produces 400HP.
- The L99 and LS3 engines are both built on the same platform, featuring 6.2L of displacement and eight cylinders. The camshaft of the L99 engine has slightly less duration than the one found in the LS3, giving the Camaro SS paired with this motor a smoother ride. The compression ratio of the L99 motor is 10.4:1, as the pistons have valve reliefs machined in the top halves of the pieces. The LS3’s compression ratio is 10.7:1.
- Consumers might favor the slight power increase in the LS3 over the L99, even though both engines demonstrate high performance values. The LS3 engine is rated and advertised with 422 brake horsepower and 408 lbs/ft of torque. The L99 engine has a slightly less horsepower output rating, as the vehicle is advertised with 400 brake horsepower and 410 lbs/ft of torque.
- The basic difference between the L99 and LS3 motors is that each one was built for a specific type of transmission. The more powerful LS3 engine is paired with 2010 Camaro SS models that feature the manual transmission. Likewise, the L99 comes from the factory in automatic Camaro SS automobiles from the same year.
- Fuel consumption has become an important aspect to modern consumers when buying vehicles. Automobile companies had to completely redesign engines in order to maximize energy yet maintain performance values. Because both the L99 and LS3 engines share the same layout and many of the same parts, the fuel efficiency does not differ greatly between the two. However, the LS3 engine is advertised with an average of 16 miles per gallon in the city and 24 miles per gallon on the highway. The L99 is rated at 16 miles per gallon in the city and 25 miles per gallon on the highway.
Some Additional Differences w/ LS3 Engine
- L99 camshaft is different — having a little less duration and a little less lift, both of which give the engine a smoother idle.
- L99 has a cam phaser and, to get the additional piston-to-valve clearance required when cam phasing changes, the pistons are different parts having valve reliefs machined into their tops. The reliefs lower the compression ratio to 10.4:1.
- L99 PCV system is different having its oil separators in the valve covers rather than down in the valley like the LS3.
LS1 Oil Pan Swap
Today we will be going over how to do an oil pan swap on a LS1 engine. This LS1 is from a 2004 Pontiac GTO and we will be switching the stock oil pan with a 1999-2001 Chevrolet Camaro LS1 oil pan. The reason for this swap is that the GTO oil pan has a front mounted pump and the Camaro pan has a rear mounted pump. This allows the engine to fit better in some custom installs.
To start this oil pan swap you will need to drain all on the oil from your engine. Ours is already out of the car so we hung it in our engine shop to do this job.
Now that the oil has been drained, We will need to remove the dust covers from both sides of the engine and the starter motor as these will be in the way.
Once those are out of the way we can start to unbolt the oil pan and remove the dip stick. Once the pan is unbolted you will want to drop it out and set it to the side.
Now that we have the oil pan out you can see the differences between the GTO oil pan and the Camaro Oil pan.
With the oil pan removed we will then need to removed the baffle and the pick up tube from the bottom of the engine. You will also want to remove the block plug for the new dip stick tube to be installed into that hole.
Now that we have removed all the old parts for this swap you will want to get all the new parts ready to be installed. We also set the old and new parts together so you can see the difference between the two styles.
At this point we can start to install the new baffle and pick up tube. The baffle will be bolted down first and then the pick up tube. These will need to be torqued down to spec.
With those parts installed, we will be sealing the 4 corners of the oil pan near timing cover and rear cover with black silicone. This will add a good seal to the oil pan when installed. At this point we will begin to mount the Camaro oil pan with the new seal on it. You will need to make sure that the pick up tube does not bind when you are bolting the pan on. Once the oil pan is in place you will want to install the new dip stick tube.
With both the pan and dip stick tube installed on the engine the next step is to mount both dust covers and the starter motor. The last step for this swap will be screwing the new oil filter into place. Once those are on, the oil pan swap is complete.
