About to start this as well with an LS3 in my 67. Can you give us a little run down of what you are running for swap parts. Mounts. Headers. Accessory drive etc. Just curious as I am about to pull the trigger on a bunch of holley stuff

I put a ton of thought into exactly what I wanted to do. My brother is in the final stages of swapping and LS2 into his 68 Camaro so I have some first hand info of all the issues that arise with swapping in a used engine. I weighed that against just getting a GM Connect and Cruise engine and transmission. It will end up costing me a bit more money but I will know what I have and have a warranty so I am going with the new LS3 480 and 4l70e transmission.
Here is what I am planning on using for parts:
Engine mounts and transmission crossmember - Holley
Oil Pan Holley 302-2
Griffin CU-70009-LS Radiator and Fans
GM 19257325 Accessory Drive
Kwik A/C bracket 10143
Hooker Super Comp Headers 2276-1HKR
Tanks Inc. fuel tank and pump
Corvette regulator and filter
Speedway Tubular Control arms 91036769
QA1 Coil overs
US Mags U111 18x8 (Front)
US Mags U111 18x9.5 (Rear)
I am undecided what I am going to do for a speedo etc. I really like the stock look but obviously nobody makes an electronic speedo yet that looks original. I am thinking of getting a speedo and trying to mount the factory face on it.
I am doing my best to do everything right but also not blow my budget totally out of the water. I have a pretty awesome wife and a generous budget so I don't want to ruin that.
