As most of you know I was dropping a 416 stroker into my 2007 AWD TBSS (remember the year).

I purchased a blown mototr from a 2006 TBSS (again remember the year).

So the build overall went well, 2 issues-code P0030 and P0341.

P0030-oops I forgot to plug in the drivers side o2 sensor
P0341-WTF cam sensor!!!

I was thinking that maybe a bad sensor, started researching the issue there. I run accross a site showing 4 different sprocket designs.

Come to find out the 2006 cam sprocket is different than the 2007-doh!!!!

So lesson learned don't use the half moon cam sprocket on an 07-lol. Not overly painful to fix...but lack of experience with these motors got me.

Just wanted to share!

You also need the 58X reluctor on the crank for the 2007 and newer.
Noob ? But what's that? I will be doing a cam soon and wanna make sure I got everything needed for the job.. Thanks

Rich, running a LPE 24x-58x converter box would be the quick and easy way vs pulling the motor and swapping reluctors. That said, if the crank/cam sensors arent a 58x matched pair (so 58x crank, 4x cam) you'll have to pull the motor and change them out anyway.

So Jeremiah, if you havent already pulled the motor, might be worth it to look into the LPE converter box. Lets you run a 58x/4x motor on a 24x/1x PCM/ECM, yes the module is a few hundred bucks but it would save you tearing into it.

Check it out: LPE 58x-24x convert module

In his case that would work but I think it only works one way right? They dont sell one to make a 24 wheel work in a later truck. Been a while since I looked though.

If you are doing a cam only, don't worry about this...The reluctor wheel is what the crank position sensor uses to tell where (in the rotation) the crank is. This is how the ignition system knows when to fire the injectors and coils. The cam and crank sensors are both used in these functions. When doing a cam, you don't have to worry about this.

I am good on the crank, the motor was built by LEP for the 07. But when I transfered the cam sprocket I didn't realize they were different 06 to 07.

C. is the 06 3 bolt gear with 1X reluctor ( also 05 vette, 05-06 GTO)

?????

I did not see this info anywhere until AFTER I got the error code and did the research. I had already done quite a bit of research, and thought it was all covered (like the crank sprocket, crank sensor, valley cover,ETC)....didnt see the cam ANYWHERE!!!

This is how people learn (sometimes) I research and do, and if something is missed (like above) then I learn from it. To me its something that anyone fairly new to the LSx motor could do.

I posted this info a while back and Ant reposted in this thread. Jake was talking to Anthony I believe.
