I have seen the impossible!
 
First I will start saying I dont have pics. So if you dont belieive me I understand.

At the truck pull this weekend It was a 2001 GMC with a LLY motor in it. At first I did not beleive the guy when he said it. He then popped his hood and proved me wrong.

He claim that he was able to use the LB7 wiring harness. He just had to splice in the LLY injector harness. He was running a Aurora 4000 turbo and had the Rick D Lance up pipes.

He is supposting be pulling at the pull in september. I am going to try and get some pics then to show you guys that I am not crazy as this post may sound to some.

I can believe it, but I'm curious how he did it; In theory, you could drive a LLY FICM (and thus LLY injectors) with an LB7 ECM, since the injector outputs *should* be the same at the ECM on both (It's the FICM that supplies the LLY's 48v or the LB7's 96v), but you'd probably have to adjust for the different flow characteristics of the injectors. Not sure how the LLY injectors would like the LB7's 96v FICM though...

He was telling me that the voltage going to the injectors is the same on all models of the dmax.He seemed to know what he was talking about.

He said he was still working on some small tuning issues but nothing to drastic.

no, Sorry, they're not.

LB7 = 96v
LLY = 48v
LBZ & LMM = 24v

My question is why? What is the point? The engine characteristics are the same just the heads, tuning, injectors, turbo and other little things are different. I just dont see the point. Maybe if he had gone to the LBZ with different bottom end I could see.

I dont really know why. From the price he told me he paid for the LLY I know he did not get a smoking deal on it or anything.

What did this truck look like? And was he from somewhere in the northern Va/Winchester area?

Darius6t9 08-31-2009 11:48 AM

If you see him again, find out what board he's on. Better yet. Tell him to join here and give us a breakdown on his truck and how he did it. I would love to find an easier and cheaper way to get rid of the problematic injectors for some that won't go bad if you sneeze wrong.

I beleive his name was Daniel Jones. His truck is a Dark Blue GMC ECLB.
He works for Dominon Power downtown. He said he lives in Amelia.

That's one good reason why one might want to run a LLY longblock with a LB7 ECM. LLY Injectors are a TON easier to get to.

X2 - I've done enough under the valve covers of an LB7 to consider changing to an LLY.:mad:

Very true but last I checked prices for an LLY injector they were alot more expensive so I would rather invest more time than money on my injectors.

That's debatable; Yes, LB7 injectors are cheaper, but they tend to go bad more often. LLY injectors are more expensive, but relative to LB7 injectors, they rarely go bad.

For the tuning ease of a Lb7. LLY is a great motor but the ECM sucks ding dong. Swap to a Lb7 ecm and adjust for tuning for the bigger sticks LB7's have and boom.
