Pm sent. I have some info for you.
Craigslist find here locally. The tie rod end is broken on left front tire and a rear end control arm is broken but other than that it still drives. . Maybe i should just leave it alone then and just do the install if its safe to say itll run to 200k miles. Ill never put that on her anyway.
the only issues ive seen with these motors is the cam bearings. They were bad in almost every ls motor Ive taken apart. Darn good deal for 1000.
Wifes '99 Camaro SS has 208k on it, only did knock sensors and the mod to the
steam vent crossover tube (fore/aft). Sure it rattles at startup, but what LSx
engine doesnt? My '04 GTO has 125k on it. That said, I have an LT1 Impala SS
with 230k and I traded out my '93 Z28 LT1 Camaro with 265k on it, just did the
valve seals on that one. They last a long time, I wouldnt touch it, save that $$
for all the stuff you will find you need after diving into the swap.
I believe one of the header collectors is angled toward the outside of the car. Guys have been heating up the primary tubes and bending them back to straight. You could sell the T56 for enought money to just about finish the swap. It'll bolt right up to the t-350 with either an adapter for the torque converter, or a special torque converter
Yup, there's a thread on here or ls1tech about that.
I'm doing a cam swap for sure, so those will come out. I may try and find an LS6 cam and intake to put in it. I'd like and aggressive lumpy cam, but I don't know if I want my car to rattle apart either.
I'll check that out.
I put a 220/220 duration with .555 lift @ 114 CL in mine before I did the swap. I like the sound and performance out of it. I wanted a 224 dur @ 112 CL.
This is mine

I am doing the swap now in my 72. I went with the kwik performance brackets the f-body alt bracket kit my pitman arm and i did not want to notch my subframe for the AC I am using vintage air also. I bought the dynateck headers also Around 450.
