Has anyone used the truck engine to swap into a second gen? Specifically the LQ4 truck engine. I have looked at the swap Jakeshoe is doing on the 69 firebird. Do you have to use the car acessory brackets for ps, a/c, alternator ect? Is it possible to use keep the truck brackets and use the truck intake. If I do have to, and I mean have to use brackets from a car which ones do I use or can I use. I also know I will need to notch the subframe to clear the a/c compressor. Will the truck intake fit under the hood of a 2nd gen? I am going to keep the fuel injection. There are easy hand help programmers and LS1 edit makes it full programble. And it willl run clean to keep all the tree huggers happy. The truck oil pan is to big if I understand right. Who makes a modded pan? I read the f-body pan will fit. Is the GTO pan the same? Why do I have to use the 70-73 motor mounts? I might look into making my own. I just remeber what a PITA it was to install the clam shell mounts with poly bushings. If anyone has noticed the old style engines like ours, costs have gone up. It almost seems like the power to cost ration would be better off to look into an LS engine swap.
