I vote we keep this thread as a tech thread only. It will be easier for everyone to follow if we leave out all the comments initially. I suggest keep the questions to technical questions and make comments after the swap is complete.

Hey thats cheating :p . I want to see how you did the stock front clip one
I agree with Bob. :yes: Using an aftermarket subframe is cheating. :poke::rolleyes:



BUT... it will still be very informative to see what you do (step by step, remember?) with the wiring. This will help anyone doing any style of LS conversion.

You are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too fast. You need to slow down and let some of us slow pokes catch up before you get another car swapped.

What are you doing for a trans crossmember? I have a 4L60E in mine and made a crossmember. Is there a crossmember out there that someoen makes and do the man and autos use the same crossmember?

wires and headers

The pink wires are combined thru the coil pack wires. Ls1 tech has all the diagrams for every year harness(all years differ).

What material are the headers? 1-3/4" tubes and 3" collectors?
