Re: LS6 in my 69

I've done the LS1/T56 conversion to my 69. If your going to do it right, it can be a little expensive, but well worth all the effort involved.

Things to note:

~Custom (or modified) oil pan
~Custom (or modified) wire harness
~EFI fuel tank
~Custom headers ($$$$$$$)
~Custom motor mount plates
~Custom cross member for trans
~Custom length driveshaft
~Master cyl bracket (manual trans)

All of this stuff can be purchased thru several different vendors that have ads on this site.

I can tell you that the LSX motor has been the one single best modification I have done thus so far PERIOD. A simple cam change, a custom tune....and get 350 horses to the wheels and still get 27mpg on the highway??? No question about it.

I'd say go for it man!

Re: LS6 in my 69

Don't mean to sound like an idiot but do you mean an LS6 454 chevy big block from the early 70s or a new gen. small block?

The LS6 motor was only available in the 2001-2004 Z06 Corvette and a few year Cadillac CTS-Vs. In 2005, The LS6 was dropped for the LS2 in the standard Vette and the Z06 got the LS7 in 2006.
