Here's the first pics, Tim. The truck intake isn't just ugly- it's also really high and won't clear most hoods. You may have more height under the Chevelle hood than the Camaro hoods do, but I can't say for sure.
It's a 6.0liter LS with a 4L80E trans out of a 2002 2500HD. Here it is coming out of the bed of my truck.
Here's the pile of spaghetti that controls it, which will be sent out to be reworked to accommodate the LS1 intake (different injectors), and to tie into the rest of my wiring.
I popped the trans off and got it on the engine stand, and gave it a quick cleaning to see what we have. Doesn't look too bad for a 10-year old engine, but it's what's inside that counts.
And under the valve covers, it looks incredible. You'd never see an old-school small block this clean with 130k on it....
The bottom end looks just as good. No metal in the oilpan or anything else to indicate any issues.
I've got three broken exhaust manifold bolts to deal with, which in speaking to a friend who's a GM tech, is a pretty common problem on these engines. Time to get out the drill and the Easy-outs. Worse come to worse, if I can't get them out easily, I've got an excuse to buy upgraded heads. Gotta look at the bright side, right???
