I know people do the conversions to OBD1...is this something I can do and pass NH state plug-in during inspection?

I have a line on a very clean 96 SS without motor/trans and I have a 95 motor/trans...If I can't do it I can wait till I get a 96 Parts car and throw that motor/trans in, but I want instant gratification...LOL

Anyone?

Doug

Use the '95 engine & trans and keep the OBDII PCM.

Otherwise you will very likely have problems during inspection, as the plug-in won't be able to communicate with the PCM.

You will not LOSE the tach, but it would read 2X with the '95 PCM as the '96 PCM is programmed for a 4 cylinder output.

Also expect the buyer to have issues when you go to sell it.

You'll need to change the timing cover, dampener hub and use the 4 tooth reluctor off of a '96 L99 or LT1.

The knock sensors will have to be swapped out also.

Be careful when breaking them LOOSE from the block as they are fragile Smile

If you still have the gold '96 engine, just swap those parts over and transfer the old stuff back to that one so you can still sell it for a '94 or '95 application.

For the love of god, where do you find stuff like that???????????

And for that matter, who in their right mind rips the motor and tranny out of a good 96

OK, so basically I should just waite till I get a 96 parts car and swap the motor/tranny over (the Gold Caprice has REALLY high mileage and I have been slowly parting the motor, so that is a no go)...That will be a hell of a lot easier and won't be a mess if I go to sell it down the road...this will likely become a personal rig should it go down.

I have my ways... The guy claims it is a 45,000 mile car...I have pics and it is CLEAN, so he might be right, still seems crazy that the previous owner yanked the drive train from it...

Doug might have himself a new Impala! Now just to find me a 96 parts car now....this one is missing the floor shift and console as well as tail lights and other little ish that I have in the shop.
