Adam's 99 Z28

A couple weeks ago I got a 99 NBM Z28 and I decided rather than start a new thread every time something came up if start a thread for the car to just ask questions on here.

Here's a few pictures:

It has a crate LS1 and a trans rebuilt by RPMs in Indiana, both with 30,000 miles. It also has an SLP intake with a corvette lid, and an SLP exhaust. AC and EGR are gone, I ordered blocking plates for the EGR. I also need to install a drivers side mirror, window motor, and the cam sensor needs to be tuned.
On to my first questions I have, do I need to get a new window regulator along with the motor, or can I just replace the motor? And in another thread that I started in the tech section it was mentioned I could probably take the air pump out since I don't have the EGR, would that be a problem?

The window regulator and motor together can be replaced, or just the motor. If you replace just the motor, You will need to drill out the factory rivets that hold the factory regulator and motor together. Then you can just re-rivet or bolt the new motor on.
Removing the air pump (smog pump) wont hurt the engine, but if your State has emissions testing, it won't pass without the air pump. Just info, I will guess your State doesn't do emissions testing, having removed the EGR.

It does, but the owner before me removed the EGR, I was told it could be tuned out to pass though.

No, if your State DOES emissions testing, they will connect the cars computer to their computer, and their computer WILL know that the cars computer has been altered, resulting in an automatic failed test. You might want to check your State's laws before you go any further.

Illinois?
Here's a heads-up:

Well, until I figure out what I'm doing with the EGR I put the blocking plates on, I know I'm risking not passing emissions. The next thing are my turn signals. Try flash kind of oddly and seem to shudder, I'll put a video of what I mean

Could it be faulty wiring? Could the flasher be going out?

I would put money on it being the flasher.

You have to remove the kick panel under the instruments / steering wheel,
and the flasher is above the tranny hump on the bottom of the center of the dash.

Thank you, do you like the Novita flasher you have? I know you haven't had it for too long, but no problems or anything yet? Also, if I were to switch the bulbs to LEDs would I need to replace the hazard flasher as well?

Replacing the sending unit generally fixes it for a little bit

I'm not sure mine was replaced when I changed the fuel pump and then my gauge was right for a while and now it's so accurate

Welcome, I'm almost positive that you can replace just the sending unit it's self. Replacing the fuel pump wasn't hard at all.
