Attachment 30930
Part number is #19212593
GM Direct and Scroggin-Dickey has them - https://sdparts.com/index.php?q=deta...parts/19212593
and it hangs about 2" below the crossmember.

You'll need motor mount adapters, oil pan, headers (some manifolds work), and as said above....best to get a whole donor.

Headers! Forgot about those. I'm planning to keep my 2.5" Magnaflow system.
Thanks Doug

Guess I better put better tires on the list too.

Makes me want to buy a ZZ4 crate motor and just put EFI on it if the carb becomes too much of a PITA.......

Well, the price of a decent EFI add-on system is pretty high. Might as well buy a complete EFI crate engine that's been tuned together, or a complete take-out from another car.
A decent EFI add-on is $3000.

I know, plus it doesn't solve the problem of needing an upgraded tank. I just have to make the commitment to drop the $$ and do the LS conversion.

And once you add all the parts that go ON a crate (if it doesn't come with them), a take-out with a tranny sounds better and better. And tons cheaper. But no warranty.


Here's some reading: http://www.superchevy.com/technical/...s/viewall.html

You're bound to have heard it before, but LS engines make stupid power with decent manners and good fuel economy. A built LS engine can pull the lower rpm ranges allowed with an overdrive transmission and still get good mileage. Most built small blocks aren't going to be happy cruising at 1,700 to 1,800 rpm.

Sure the up front cost is higher, but long term results are much better and you have a car you'll enjoy driving rather than dreading as you watch the gas gauge rapidly move toward empty.

Yeah, that's why I'm going the LS route. Add in the fact that this car will be my daughter's daily driver when she gets her license in 5 years, and there's another reason to want to be able to just turn the key and go. I don't want to have to explain letting the car warm up on cold days, pumping the gas twice when it's cold, etc.

Joe, Dynamaxx's are decent priced....my swap headers were $400 (1 7/8" primaries )

This combo I copied has been 9.8X best in a 2900# car.

I am planning the same swap and have been collecting parts for the last 5 months. I found this site to be very informative http://ls1tech.com/forums/conversion...ro-basics.html
Looks like the biggest challenge is getting the pan, headers, steering gear and engine mounts to play happy together. I think I will have enough parts and time to get started over the Christmas holidays.

The basics in that post are great, but its about 6 years old, and doesn't cover some of the newer parts that have come out since then.
