    So i thought i would make a new thread documenting my ly6 build.
    I bought this for around 2 grand give or take a dollar or two :) motor came from a 2008 GMC sierra 2500 HD truck. 21,000 MILES.

    Went with brp's install kit came with mounts crosmember oil pan and all fasteners the fit is very nice and the parts look great.

    I have decided i want to go carberated i hate dealing with a ton of wires plus
    i love the look of a carbed motor.

    I started cleaning her up sprayed a couple of coats of gloss black. i am also keeping the VVT i will be using the msd 6012 box to fire the coils.

    Also using the f-body drive system after some trial and error fitting parts i finally got it rite i used a f-body water pump with 1.5 spacers to clear the vvt i also spaced out the power steering and alternator 3/4's of an inch away from the motor, i also used a vette tensioner at first i used the f-body balancer that was a no go since it did not line up so i went back to the truck balancer it came with and it was a perfect match, also want to mention that i had no problems with the pitman anr clearence its all good :)

    I will be updating as cash deems necessary lol.

    Sweet.
    I'd like to see a build sheet with part #'s and prices for a carb'd setup.
    I don't think anyone here has done a full list like that yet to compare. :bowtie:

    Keeping the fuel injection runs you probably ~$550 for a tank & pump, plus Speartech mods $800.
    So ~$1350 to keep it. So I'm curious what it cost to compare to lose the EFI.

    Depends on which alternator it is.
    That's the same mount as the GTO and F-body, but the GTO alternator I heard is bigger.

    I guess it's the luck of the draw with your motor mounts too.
