My swap has been up and running for about 9 months now (although it hasn't seen the road much recently in the Oregon rainy season). It is definitely the nicest driving old car I've ever been in. Be aware when you read the swap details, this was definitely not a low budget swap, that wasn't a big objective for me. The T-56 trans was already in the car behind the old small block, it's a Viper trans modified by D&D with old style input shaft and bellhousing mount. I used one of the new Lakewood scattershields designed for LS1s, a conventional 11" Centerforce clutch with the stock LS1 flywheel and a longer pilot bearing (custom machined, but I think Street and Performance sells one). Clutch actuation was via McLeod throwout bearing and Wilwood 5/8" long stroke master cylinder (very smooth operation). Although this is a t-56, the same parts would work for a Muncie or Tremec 5 speed or anything else designed to go originally behind old style small block/big block. Oil pan is a C5 'vette pan (trying to keep oil on the pickup at track days). We had to slightly notch the subframe cross member to clear the front of the pan. If I were to do this again, I'd use the new LS2 Corvette pan, which is supposed to have even better oil control and doesn't stick out the sides. Headers are Pacesetter long tubes for 4th gen Camaro. Bought them without coating so we could modify them, had to cut the driver's side collector off and reweld it to point straight back instead of angled into the frame. Also had to reroute a couple of primary tubes slightly to clear the C5 pan. Passenger side fit well, had to bend the collector in very slightly with a big come-along. Hooker now makes long tubes for LS1 in first gen Camaro and also now for Chevelle - I'd be tempted to try those first if I were to do it again. Radiator is a Ron Davis 31" dual pass with built in dual electric fans and shroud, and oil cooler. I've used this radiator in other applications, and it has phenomenal cooling power (it should, for almost $800). Needed to keep things cool on the Portland International Raceway track days. ECU is a Big Stuff 3 with wide band O2 - I wanted to do my own tuning, and wanted data logging. If you want to do your own tuning and data logging, there really are no inexpensive solutions out there. The engine was out of a 2000 Camaro. I modified it with AFR 205 heads, custom Comp 224/228 cam, FAST 90 mm intake and TPIS 90 mm throttle body. With those mods, it made a shocking 453 HP at the rear wheels, and still idles like a pussycat.
