    I HAVE THESE MOUNTS FROM SPEEDWAY MOTORS, AND I PLAN TO BUY THEIR HEADERS FOR THIS MOUNT ALSO (HAVEN'T BOUGHT THEM YET)




    THEY HAVE STOCK MOUNTS AND 1" SETBACK MOUNTS ALSO, THESE I HAVE ARE STOCK LOCATION.

    SINCE THE TRANNY XMEMBER MOUNTS ON MY FRAME WERE ALREADY CUT OFF FOR THE WRAP, I CHOSE TO GO WITH THE S&P TRANNY X MEMBER SINCE EVERYONE ELSES X MEMBERS FOR IMPALAS WERE BOLT IN. I WILL CAUTION OTHERS THOUGH IF YOU STILL HAVE THE STOCK TRANNY MOUNTS ON YOUR FRAME TO USE A MOTOR/TRANNY MOUNT KIT.

    you cant go wrong with psi,the name of the shop is redline performance...i also have 3 ls car intakes for sale if anyone is interested in swapping their truck intake for a low-profile one


    speedway motors has the sender fittings now available for ls engines for use with stock/aftermarket gauges...this is great if you plan on using factory or dakota/autometer gauges
    is there any info or help in particular that you need just post it on here and ill do my best to answer/help out

    it depends on the route you take i.e. 5.3 or 6.0, polished everything or keeping the stock look

    5.3's are plentiful from the silverados and suv's, as most of the 6.0's ive seen come from the larger suv's escalades yukons, etc generally usually around 1500 with tranny

    mounts,tranny x member, headers kits range varies especially depending on the name brand headers you get, but i would estimate 500-800 on a kit

    everyone has a different price for harnesses etc, but i'm getting mine from PSI, 500 for the harness and 200 for the programmed PCM

    theres a easy fuel system solution with external pump and fuel regulator you would spend about 300 for

    f body oil pan kit 300


    the accessory drive system is what can make the difference in this swap. you can go expensive (and great looking!) zoop styled system for around 2g's, or theres a gm kit with everything for 800. like the homie said he got his stuff from dirty dingo which is far less and his looks awesome

    To add to this mayhem of lsx swaps, figure out what intake you're going to run so you can figure out what accessories to run as far as the location of them truck accessory brackets have the alternator positioned up high and on the driver side if you were to throw on a car intake you're going to have to go with a different water pump and alternator bracket or customize the alt bracket

    this is true,

    has anybody used this seteup in an impala? i'm hoping this would work, saves me alot of tiem from piecing stuff together. all i'd have to do is buy the vette waterpump and balancer

    64 ec style make sure you run all the accessory brackets for the same models trucks f body and vettes all have different clearances I guess you can say so that the belt lines up. I've seen people try to run an fbody water pump with truck acc. And the belt tends to slip off I believe dirty dingo sells the adapters for that to space the water pump to the correct length if you still want to run the truck setups

    yeah i'm going to run all vette accessories, i'm just wondering if anyone has used that kit in the link i posted in an impala yet. since i dont have any accessories yet and that kit comes with all GM corvette accessories minus the vette balancer and vette water pump. would save me alot of time from piecing shyt together

    I end up just changing the pulley off the truck water pump and put on the ls1 water pump (corvette/camaro) no need to buy them adapters! While at it I polished the water pump just to clean it up a bit!
