Hi guys I'm new on this Forum
However I am not new to car, restaurateurs, mods.
I scored a 80 Z28 that was calling for "help"
It was a empty roller when I got it. Had a bunch of interior parts that came with it that all need to be restored.

Also a freshly done set of oem seats front and back on the oem framing.

Anyhow I am building it for my Wife as a "reliable driver" , so LS/auto setup it is.
I have a gen3 LS 4.8 with gen 4 internals and 706 heads, that I went through already it has a sloppy stage 2 cam, oil pump mods and will get valve spring upgrade soon.

I was wondering what LS mounts you guys use, with orm clam shells?

And what oil pan to clear the stock K member.?

I use what I have.
Also this is the "high tech" section? SBC isn't "high tech" lol + $ double to get the same power as a junkyard LS.

I'm a LS guy.
Motor mounts, I used clam shells with the "typical" aluminum adapter plates. I used Speed Engineering headers. They fit great.
2002 Camaro oil pan. Holley also has a similar pan.
Make sure that cam has enough vacuum for power brakes. Add upgraded push rods to your parts list.
Those seats look good.

Thanks I saw the "clamshell mounts" great that they work
So the f body pan it is. Yea the cam is nothing to crazy. Engine internals are all done already I was thinking about porting the heads but that is already to carried away for a reliable driver.
+ I want to do a 4l60e they don't hold to much power lol.

I'm doing a 76 now (6.0) and went with Holley mounts. They worked out great, long tube headers went in super easy... I don't think the truck intake will fit but that might be a bad assumption on my part. For sure you will want to swap out the oil pan.
