LS3 powered CJ6 gets tuned.

Another local shop brought us this Jeep project after doing a beautiful job putting it together to be tuned and get the engine broke in and sorted out. A fast EFI setup was used and worked great. A single plain manifold modified for port injection was used for induction.

The engine ran pretty rough with the start up file it came in with so we spent some time on the dyno sorting it out. End result was 400rwhp through the th400 and throwing the big tires around. LS power is awesome.

Tire replacement today.  Properly balancing tires this large and heavy can be tricky. A lot of times there is simply not enough rim for the required weight to balance the tires. What works for us is a multi step process that involves spinning the wheel only and measuring for balance, mounting the tire, spin balancing it, measuring for dynamic balance, marking the tire and wheel, then rotating the wheel 180 on the rim and respining it. This gives us a indication of actual tire balance. By putting the heavy part of the tire opposite the heavy rim, we cut down on the amount of weight needed. Next we respin the assembly and balance the wheel and tire dynamically. Add weight where its needed and this will 95% of the time yield a great riding tire. As a bit of insurance on the tires over 38″ diameter, a bag of balance beads are sometimes added. Especially for street only trucks.

If you have a big truck with tires that just won’t balance, give us a call. We can take care of your balnce issues as well as all of your other tire needs.
