Re: LS3/Tremec Magnum swap-any TIPS you wish you knew??
I just put a LSX and T56 magnum in my 67, I wish I had read a thread like this before I ordered parts would have saved me time and money. Lesson learned:
1) Don't listen to the vendor when they tell you there system for the T56 Magnum will work without having to raise your trans tunnel, it won't unless you are ok with a 6 to 7 degree angle on the motor/tranny (not good).
2) Don't worry about who you buy the transmission from, more important is find a good company with good customer service, pricing, and a proven setup that others have used in their cars. (The Holley setups look very good).
3)Not a big fan of the Tanks Inc setup for fuel tank, I know others have used them but I put one in our 68 C10 truck and had nothing but issues with it, pump was very noisy, it would bog the motor down and starve for fuel when it gets under about 1/4 of a tank. For my Camaro I going to get one of the new setup from Rick's tanks Restomod, looks like a much better setup with a new Camaro fuel pump and regulator built together and a high quality fuel level sensor.
4)For a serpentine system I bought one from Drive Junky, its a very high quality setup with everything I need a fits the 1st gen camaro very nicely cannot comment on other brands.
