Hi

Of course Im going to say the starter works great I work for Meziere. I have used the TS119 on my personal racer car with a LS. My motor is 5.7l with about 12 to 1 compression. Started fine every time on 1 battery in the trunk. I have sense switched to our TS219 that we just came out with. Not to many drag racers are running our TS119 yet so will not get to many responces. We have sold a lot of TS119 to the off road race teams here in Socal, and they seem to like them. My experience is most LS guys are using the factory LS starters that work great for the small lower compression LS engines. When you start to get into the larger 450+ and above 13 to 1 compression guys are going with our TS319 which is pricey.

1leg, Thanks for the response. I am looking to spin the engine faster due to my mechanical fuel pump. From what I found it looks like the 219 is a permanent magnet with a low ratio. Not interested in the 319, the 119 appears to have a higher ratio. Am I on the right track? It’s not high compression or cubic inch it just needs more speed. Only one rear mounted battery 12 volt system. Also on the FPS 174, does that allow a Small Block/Big Block torque converter with a powerglide and no pilot sleeve on the crank ?

On a low compression motor the TS119 should spin the motor faster then the TS219. ON A high compressing motor lets say 12 to 1 or higher the TS219 or TS319 will likely spin faster because the pinion support they offer. My motor is right at 11.5 or 12 to 1 and I acually think the TS119 spun it faster(by sound didn't measure). I like the TS219 and TS319 because of the pinion support will have less ware issue on the flexplate starter engagement.

I'm running the FPS174 with TH400 trans and i'm using a off the shelf TH400/TH350 FTI converter for a SBC/BBC without any pilot adaptor. I don't see any reason why a powerglide would be different. We used my set up to design this flexplate adaptor everything just bolts in with all the clearance dead on. Of course everyone should check their setup.

Never had any issues running a truck starter on my LS builds....

I typically put the battery in the trunk/behind the seat... then run the positive cable directly from battery to starter... then starter to alternator.. then finally alternator to the fuse block. How you run this really makes a difference and no more starting issues!

Were you running a mechanical fuel pump ?

If you are using a kill switch I would not route the cables that way. If the switch was opened it would send a voltage spike to the diodes in the alternator. Proper way is to run a high amp fuse and run the charge wire directly to the battery.

I agree I would not run to the Starter.

I use a 4g wire through a fuse and continuse duty relay to the battiers in the back.
