Not sure where the computer is gonna go yet. Sanderson headers that I've already fitted (friend had some), The mounts, and harness is all from Turn Key Engine supply. Turn Key also supplied the Inline Fuel pump and filters, but we had to make our own hard line and return. Not sure about the speedo yetNeed details. Where is the computer going? What headers? What tranny? What fuel system? What mounts? What are you going to do about the speedometer?
Very interested as I hope to possible do a 5.3 or 6.0 truck motor in the future :yes:
Please keep us updated
Any thoughts on changing intakes to the Corvette/Camaro/Trans Am style?I actually had to trim a little of the bracing on the hood for it to clear the highest point of the intake. These things are tall.
If I change the intake, I would have to change all of the drive accessories. My goal was to use the factory clutch fan. It's just preference.Any thoughts on changing intakes to the Corvette/Camaro/Trans Am style?
How about the oil pan? I know that the truck version hangs pretty low.

The pan I used is from a Hummer 5.3. It's just over an inch shorter than the truck pan. Still low, but the F-body pan would hit the steering center link.
Everything clears the hood fine, except for the raised boss for the intake cover. (highest point of the intake) which only hits because of the bracing under the hood. I trimmed a little bit of the bracing and it clears fine.
Depends on what you consider the whole set-up?How much did you pay for the whole setup... that would look very nice under my hood????
That's a pretty cheap, turn-key conversion.Depends on what you consider the whole set-up?
The Retro-fit kit from Turn Key which includes, oil pan, wire harness, flex plate, starter, headers, engine brackets, throttle body, fuel pump and filters is about $1,200
I bought the engine and trans for $1,300
