Exclamation new kid in town

Hi all! I am new to this forum but not new at the same time. I come from duramaxforum.com, it's a sister site off of this one. I post quite a bit with the same username. I'm not new to the world of modifying cars. I recently got done building my truck. It was bone stock basically, but I recently tore it down to the short block, re did the head gaskets, arp head studs, 30% injectors, non waste gated s366 turbo, swapped out my old a-pillar gauges for new ones, and threw a 6" lift and 35 12.50 tires...last year I did efi live, a built transmission and a air dog lift pump......so I usedto have a 89 rs 2.8 v6 Camaro and I totaled it a few years back, I've always loved 3rd gen Camaro's and recently I was able to pick up a 86 5.0 z28, I have a built 454 that is ready to be dropped in minus head gaskets and such. I wanna swap it in. My buddy and I tore the engine down to inspect it, it was a steal, it's not a truck 454 it's a legit car engine, carbureted and no electronics =)...anyhow I have read up and the 2 things I've consistently seen is the headers need to be perfect and the radiator needs to be larger, at this juncture I'm just concerned about the swap into the engine bay. So any list of parts needed to help make this easier is appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome, Chad.
Nice project done and listed for the next.
You might check Holley for a BBC mounting kit, maybe.
But for the most part, it should be a bolt-in.
Check heater nipples and A/C suitcase for fit.
Worst part, dummy up a BBC block, oil pan heads, b/housing, and 3/4-spd trans case, or an auto case of choice, and fit it in?

Re: new kid in town

I love duramax's. any video's of it?

1967 Camaro SS 396 (Brute American muscle)
1998 Audi A4 TQM (Clever German engineering)

Both are just as fun to drive as the other in completely different ways.

Re: new kid in town

none just yet man, plenty of picture, biggest problem I have been running into with the truck is with the bigger turbo, the intercooler boots like to pop off at the worst times lol, some more reading I've done is that the 700r4 behind won't hold, and I can get myself a turbo 350 or 400, I have read they require a different drive shaft but don't know about anything else to help them fit?
