I'm getting everything together to start my LS swap on my 71. I'm looking at all of the companies out there with complete swap kit options. I figure it will be best to stick with the same company throughout the project for fitment. What are some opinions on BRPhotrods, holley, or hedman? Any preferences or recommendations? Thanks for any advice.
I would 100% stick with BRPhotrods. They have hands down been by no comparison the best out of all the swap parts I’ve tried. I bought the engine mounts, headers, trans crossmember and a bunch of other stuff. I got the full length stainless steel headers and was so blown away by the quality and fitment I had to stop halfway through install and email them expressing my overwhelming satisfaction. They are not the cheapest option but worth every single penny. Everything they offer has been test fit and confirmed prior to the sale. You won’t be disappointed. I also bought there EFI gas tank kit and can’t say enough great things about it. Good luck on your Swap. Be careful mixing and matching swap parts as some are not compatible.

What ac bracket? And open air tube You use?
Here is the AC bracket I used from ICT Billet:

and I put together a custom air intake tube by ordering each section and building it up from CPP website.

I use Lokar. You can either do the trans (short) bell housing mount type or the longer one that can be attached to the fire wall. Summit has their brand also.
