  3. LQ4 to 69 camaro swap parts list

I swapped in a LQ4, I did not even crack open the engine, except for topping it off with a carb, I just left it stock...

    Transmission & Driveline
    To all, I have nearly completed my swap into my 1967 Camaro. All that is left is to align the shifter with the stock console shift plate. I am having trouble with the existing T56 shifter assembly. It keeps hitting the plate when I try to go into reverse. Are there any after market shifter...

  6. T56 Clarification (Why is it always about the length of my shaft)

    Transmission & Driveline
    Conflicting information among the T56 swap posts or people are using words interchangeably causing some confusion. I have a T56 LT1 that I changed the input shaft to the LS1 shaft. MCleod 8-207 adapter plate is on the way. I have the Lakewood housing and mechanical linkage from the previous...
  7. Rear End Swap (Ford 9" or GM)

    Transmission & Driveline
    I have looked through many of the posts. Many of them look to be dated more than a year ago. Looking for updated information and experiences. I have found a reconditioned jig welded Ford 9" with proper perch locations and pinion angle/offset for 1969 Camaro. Can anyone already running a...

    Doing a head swap this summer. (Found this great video: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5379080333346194312#) When I'm doing this engine work, I'd like to really clean up the engine bay while I'm at it. I also need to replace my radiator support. It's got a huge rust hole in it and...
  9. Ryan's official LQ4 into a 1968 Camaro Swap Thread.

    EFI in your modern Classic
    I live in a condo in downtown Miami. Here is the view: I am fortunate enough to have a 1968 Camaro. I purchased the camaro for $2000 in the summer of 2001, when I was in college. It had a blown engine and a powerglide transmission. The upholstery was shot. It had a nice krylon paint job. I...
  10. 67 Camaro powerglide to an overdrive?

    Transmission & Driveline
    First off, thank you for any advice. I am finally at the point after years of work and thousands of dollars to start on the drivetrain of my 67 Camaro. It is not a special car but it has made it over 40 years without being molested. I really want a 5 or 6 speed manual but can not bring myself to...
  11. 5.3 LS truck motor

    EFI in your modern Classic
    I was down at a few local junk yards two weeks ago looking for a small plastic piece for my truck. At every yard I was at, I asked how much for one of the 5.3 motors. My truck is in the 151000+ range now, and I'm not an easy guy on the gas. At every yard I was told $500. This seems like a good...
  12. A Rookie's Guide to Rear End Swaps

    Transmission & Driveline
    So, I started on this project about 3 months ago, and just haven't had the time to finish it up. I exchanged posts with some of you about making a post that brakes down all the feasible First Gen rear end swap possibilities -- that is, ditching an 8.2 for "better" rear ends -- and things to...
  13. Rearend Swap Sticky?

    Transmission & Driveline
    I've found a lot of good posts on what rearends will swap into a 1st Gen and what kind of work is required to do the swap, but I was wondering if it would be useful to compile all of the rearends that work into a singe thread? I'd be happy to work with one of the mods on this... Or anyone else.

  15. Basics of converting the LS1 harness (99-04 engine) 99-02 PCM

    EFI in your modern Classic
    About the LS1 F-Body (98-04 engines are all compatible with the 99-02 harness). There are obviously differences between the engines though. If acquiring one look for an 02-04 engine it was the last revision before end or production. **I do have some 03-04 harness info I could dig out of...
  16. Can I swap an Automatic to Manual tranny?

    Transmission & Driveline
    I have a 1981 Camaro, with a 3 speed automatic from a 1989 Camaro. I really want to swap out the automatic and convert the system to a five speed manual. I bought a t-5 from a 1992 Camaro but don’t know what other parts I will need for the swap. Has anyone done something similar to this swap or...

    Does anyone have experience with swapping out an inlline 6 with a Chevy 350? I want to keep the same tranny for now so I know I need a new fly wheel and wiring harness, but what else will I need? It's my first attempt at swapping to a different type of motor so any advice/literature is...
