    I have the complete 01 camaro ss with A4. I found the BRP hotrod conversion kit for 479. that should take care of the engine and trans.

    Cooling.
    I was thinking of useing the 4thgen radiator since I have a m21 in the 71.

    Power steering make up new line and fittings to match to the 71 gear box.

    fuel lines run new front to back what size?

    driveshaft use the 4thgen cut to length and the back yoke to match 71 yoke size.
    new fuel tank fuel pump sender who to use ?
    i was going to old tank replace it anyway.

    The dash gauges I have to 4thgen so I could figure out some way to use it or is there a better set up ?

    I was almost done in rewireing the 71. I was getting ready to wire the convar gauge cluster up to finish it. can i still use it ?

    thanks for help
    P.S Stokkeland is looking forward complete 406 small block LOL

    Rock Auto has the 70-73 EFI tank with pump installed for ~$320 last time I looked. I ordered a new line kit from Classic Tube, got the 3/8" line, then used compression fittings with 3/8" barbs, rubber FI hose with FI hose clamps...working great

    I'm running the corvette filter regulator returning at the rear works great I have a Ricks stainless tank. NO MATTER WHAT YOU HAVE TO PUT THE PUMP IN TANK!!!!! I used an IROC box with the O-ring to -6an fittings no problems. I see your're in GA. and since i'm in upstate SC shoot me an e-mail and ride up and you can see how I did all my stuff. I'm also runing a Covans dash.

    I used a 4th gen radiator in my `80, and only modded the area arund the radiator cap and used the `80 top radiator support.
