  1. Mr. Alper,  I just bought an extreme double throwdown. It has 12.50 front tires, so I assumed it had 2" hollows on it. after a closer look it appears they are just combo's. I guess that what i get for assuming. I dont feel safe driving the car until I get you to upgrade it. Im gonna have to run those alper covers too! they look tough

    Yep exactly. Except my filter mounts straight to the throttle body so I didn't have the room to do this so I machined a mount that bolts to the side of the throttle body and the sensor goes on that. Hope this helps the OP solve his issue

    thanks for all the help.

    hoping to get this thing out before the weekend to test, Ill keep y'all updated.

    Mine was doing this too. It was the intake temp sensor. It was thinking the intake air temp was too high and sending it into limp. Turns out the p.o. put the sensor in the wrong place and it would get heat soaked. Moved it, and problem solved.

    this actually makes a lot of sense, we just put a different intake on it before the problem started.

    This.  Your gauge uses a different sender then the PCM.  Should be a standard chevy sensor.  Ohm it out and check the chart to see if its reading correctly.

    awesome we will give this a shot, thank you for the input.

    As Bobalos said, make sure it's not temp related. The MEFI should have a temp shutdown on it so if the motor sees to high of temperatures it'll go into limp mode. 

    unless my temp gauge is messed up its not a temp problem.

    it cruises around at 180-190 and maxes out around 210. If im not mistaken the mefi goes into limp mode around 235 degrees

    Are you sure its a time related thing or is it Engine Temp related??  (a scanner port would be REALLY helpful).


    the stupid thing does not have a scan port, but i did look at which wires it takes to check codes and I am going to jump them and do a ghetto one just to see if it is throwing a code.

  7. last time i had a problem you guys answered the question and helped me so much.

    now my friend is having a problem.

    he can start the car and run it hard with no issues, then if he putts around for a second or lets it idle and then trys to get back after hit he acts like it is in limp mode and wont reve above 4k RPM. i can shut the car off then turn it back on and start the process over again.


  8. I sheared all 12 bolts off the ring gear one year, and the next year i shredded the ring an pinion.  the first one was on 33 #2 cut paddles with a alper motorsports 427. the second time was on 33 pro cut and the Alper motorsports 440.


    I drop the clutch to wheelie at every 45 seconds and I hit every set of whoops i can find wide open.  I bought a LT car with good hors power because I wanted to use it, not to look cool.


    I want the bigger tires because the cars look so much better on them, they grab better, and they handle the choppy stuff better.. i just cant justify spending the coin on them right now.

    He is not building them out of LS7's.....

    my @alpermotorsports was built out of an LS7 simply because i already had a block & heads. Jason hates me and claims he is going to follow me around the dunes to pick up my rods and pistons because i did not let the tuner set my rev limiter.  lets just say if you ever find the rev limiter on my motor you are WAAAAAY outside the power band, the motor should blow before my rev limiter hits. lets just say my motors have stayed together.(hopefully i didn't just jinx myself LOL.) I don't claim to be the hardest best driver out there, but I promise I'm not the worst nor the easiest.  


    Everyone has a preference, and I'm sure there are many motor builders out there that build a quality motor. I prefer Jason for the personal touch, and the communication. He also has a wealth of knowledge that he shares on other offroad related items. I am lucky enough to Live in Vegas where he does business.


    I have heard of him driving out of state on multiple occasions to help with delivery for out of state customers. In my opinion his fee is extremely fair.


    I am only sharing my personal experience.  I am sure there are several other builders out there that you cant go wrong with. I am not sure I have ever heard one negative thing about Redline.

  10. Mr Alper,


    I might need you to hook up your other brother with a hitch.

    Towing back from Dumont my pullrite superglide hitch let go. that was an aggressive impact.  first when the trailer slid back and slammed under acceleration then again when i went to slow down and it slid forward and rammed my truck.

    I trust you a lot more than some of these chintzy items being sold currently.







  11. I tow a 47' weekend warrior completely loaded with a Silverado Duramax lifted on 35's

    it does the job. its always a fun ride. If im doing 90+ miles an hour and hit a hump it the road its a hellava ride. I think the front wheels even came off the ground one time

    the guy in front of me was towing a similar size rig with a stock dually and claims he barely felt it. (I wont mention any names)

  12. well I pulled the trigger on a few upgrades to my 08 weekend warrior full throttle

    new hard surface flooring - new carpet will be next

    rebuilt valances so that reclining sofas will clear

    new sofas.

    it was a long weekend

    now it looks like I have to do something to get the  motor on my large slide out fixed. for some reason when I go to pull the slide in the motor pivots away from the gear as if the bolts holding it have either broken or come loose. Anyone have any past experience with this?

    here are some before and after photos.
