You've got a least a year before you're driving to the golf course based on how slow your swap is going. Plus, you won't have any $$ left over for greens fees......lol

It's "Rollin'" now- getting it runnin' will be a different story....lol

Ordered my water pump and the brackets to make my drive system work today. Check out Lsbrackets.com- he has some smart and inexpensive (relative to other drive packages) ideas.

I remember seeing on LS1tech that the LS3/L76 waterpump outlet were on the driver's side. I think they would fit your LS2 if I'm not mistaken.

I just picked up an LQ9 yesterday, and will need a water pump with a driver's side outlet. And I read that the L99 Camaro water pump will keep the truck accessory spacing, with a driver's side outlet.

**don't quote me on any of this. I'm an LS newbie at the moment.

I hate to start cracking bolts on this thing (just brought it home this morning!), so I think for now I'm just going to work with the current setup. I can always mod things later on if I have to.
But that's good info to know Brent.

I'm in the same boat. Just brought it home last night. I was going to start pulling it apart today but I think I'm going to wait until I can get it onto an engine stand before trying to disect this thing.

The 2010-2012 Camaro water pump is a driver side outlet and lines up with the truck accessories from what I heard. I went with a 2000 Camaro pump to clear my throttle body and ordered spacers from lsbrackets.com to bring it out to align with the drive belt. I don't have a radiator, so I'll just order one with both outlets on the passenger side.

If you go trunk mount battery I suggest you run a solenoid in the trunk so the battery cable is only hot when starting.
have a battery relocation kit coming... what type of solenoid do I need to wire in?

Joe, get the furd type. It has to be in line with the positive cable. Wire it to activate with the starter motor 'crank' wire. That wire is removed from the starter and led to the furd solenoid that's close to the battery. Yeah, you might want to run that wire under the seats, or just lead it under the car. Anyway, the solenoid on the starter is wired with a jumper from the main cable so as to activate when the armature receives juice.
Simple and safe. No power is in any of the wires unless cranking.

You can NOT jumper LS starters.

You can run the starter wire to the starter and and the solenoid.
