    Thanks for that info too. I am talking about the cable from the transmission also known as the kick down cable. I am told on these transmissions the adjustment is critical for the life of the transmission. On a Carb motor no problem but on the ls motor with the throttle cable location from the front of the motor I am unsure where this cable ties in?

    mid length headers from BRP Hotrods. decided to go with these because of the rear dump, mid length design with ball and socket collector. wasn't too crazy on the collector on the cast manifolds from hooker

    Very Nice!!! Motor fits Good. Keep the pics coming. Will you be able to use your e-brake with those headers? Good price on that Radiator too..

    i dont forsee a clearance with the e brake at all.

    i did notch my crossmember, you can see it in my build topic. but my frame was wrapped and the contours werent right which hit the pan, so thats why i had to notch it. but ive read often that several people say the f body oil pan clears, but not by much

    Another question about this swap, the guy I'm dealing with for the ls motor says the new ecu will come so I won't have to run cats or o2 sensors. I live in a smaller city with no emissions testing so will the motor run good without the sensors?

    You will still need 2 o2 sensors, one on each side The originals come with 4, 2 before and 2 after the cats. But since ur not running cats you still need 2

    My guy builds Sand cars and puts the ls motors in them without the O2 sensors.
    The O2 sensors send the message to the ecu to adjust air fuel mixture, correct? Is it possible to set the new ecu up without the O2 sensors? What will happen? I mean he is doing it but fuel mileage is not a factor in the sand dunes.

    yes they measure the air/fuel ratio and the pcm adjusts its accordingly.

    i'm not willing to take that chance on my setup. it really doesn't make any difference $$$ if you run the o2 sensors or not so i decided to play it safe and run them

    for sand buggys an o2 sensor is not needed ,most of the time theyre running from 3000 rpm to full throttle anyways which is why mpg isnt a concern but performance is for them.....you can run the 2 o2 sensors and not run any cats if you dont need to pass smog but if mpg is your concern then yes you will def need them,they also run better with them on FI
