LQ4 info for swap

I have posted previously and you guys here are so helpful! I purchased my LQ4 with my 4L80E transmission for a swap in my pro touring 1967 camaro and I had a few questions.

I have been searching the forums and everyone seems to have done different things and now I'm just comfused, I'm trying to learn as much as I can along the way so try to forgive me for my lack of knowledge

I know I need to change the front accessories but what is the most cost effective way to do this and what parts do I need?

Would a LS6 intake manifold fit complete with fuel rails, injectors and throttle body?

Which cross member, engine mounts and headers do you recommend?

Has anyone used the Chevrolet performance oil pan, or the Holley oil pan? Does the Chevrolet performance hang to low?


I know that's a lot of questions but if I can get some help that would be appreciated.


Thanks!

I can't help you but I would buy this book :

I went carbed so not much help in the EFI Dept., but I like the Holley pan since the GM pan hangs about 2" lower than the cross member.
There are others also, but I didn't want/need a remote oil filter set-up.

Nabil, Holley/ Hooker has a lot of the stuff you're going to need. Motor mounts, trans mount, low profile oil pan, accessory drive parts, headers- primary size depends upon engine output.

Good info at....... http://ls1tech.com/ and http://lateral-g.net/

I have been doing lots of research on different forums, everyone does something different and I'm not sure if it's neccesary to do certain things or are they just upgrades.

Does anyone know if the LS6 intake is the better way to go? Also would I need the ls6 rails injectors and TB?

Re: LQ4 info for swap

Nabil here is a build thread that was on our sister site (Team Chevelle) An LS6 intake was used on an LQ9 engine.
