    Here it is:
    New Jake's Performance LY6 Crate Engine and 4L80E going into a '73 Camaro.

    Highlights so far:
    6.0L iron block, L92 head engine, we're deleting the VVT and installing a performance cam. Custom built 4L80E, 9.5" 3200 converter.

    Edelbrock headers and mounts.

    Cadillac CTS-V oil pan.

    Got any pan clearance shots? Didn't you say the engine had to set back an inch or two to fit that CTS-V pan?

    None of the pan in this car yet, we still have the truck pan on the engine. We have to do a cam swap and will swap the pan, timing cover, timing set, cam, and valve springs all in one shot.
    Ordering parts for that now.

    I've sold these pans to others doing the swap and they fit with the setback position, the Edelbrock mounts are setback.

    I'm jealous.

    Does it look like the stock L92 intake will fit under the stock flat hood?

    Thanks, Joe

    Jake,
    Will the Eddy mounts work with a F-body factory pan??

    I'm not sure. I carry the CTS-V pans and they will usually fit where an F-body pan will so I typically use them.

    Intake is the factory L92 intake. Truck configuration for the rectangular port L92/LS3 heads.

    I need to mark up my prices. I'm selling the LY6 complete as shown on the Mast site for $3K...

    Add a $700 cam kit, and a $1700 controller/harness and you have $3K less than they sell it for...
