64 LS swap

Have 2003 Sierra 2500 6.0 thinking of putting in 64 Nova. Looking for anybody that has done this and has good link that shows what they used.
Car has stock front clip and steering. Car now has SBC 350 with Th350 trans
Questions I have:
Oil pan is there one that will work with factory front clip? Aftermarket pan?
Exhaust manifolds are there any factory ones that will work?
Intake will the truck one work or is it to tall and will hit hood? if it does hit
hood how much clearance is needed? might get aftermarket hood if
one of those will clear intake or run without for now.
Engine mounts ?
Flywheel?
Fuel pump?
Water pump? Would we just use factory type?
Front alternator bracket and what is needed to run belt?

I am a long time auto wrecker in the Sf bay area so if I can use a used part I do not mind. Any help on this would be great. Thanks in advance.

Also if I am forgetting to ask something important please do not hesitate to let me know.

Thanks Freddie

Ls1 accessories fit nice....the truck intake will fit under a stock hood.. headers...the only ones that fit nice are church boys racing...look at their website..if you buy their headers...he gives you engine plates...motor mounts use energy ls1

You will also need a engine wiring harness. .check out psi...if you don't have a computer these can be bought on ebay for $25....better look at brakes to..gonna need to stop with all that power...the Ls brake conversion works well and is cheap..especially if you work at a wrecking yard...98-02 camaro/firebird front and rears...is the wrecking yard off of evans

Please tell me more about the 98-02 camaro brakes? is it a painless change over ? do you have link on that. Or can you tell what needs to be used and what might need to be purchased. I have never heard anyone using brakes for any kind of change over.

Thanks Freddie
