1983 chevy el camino ly6 ls1 swap/ conversion
startup of my 1983 chevy el camino after swapping in a 6.0l vortec engine.
This is just a progress video. The vehicle is far from done. The car has a
built 350C transmission. The engine and the rest of the car is stock. I
wish i was able to close the stock hood, but the way that I mounted the
engine necessitates a cowl hood.
5.3 G-body Cadillac CTS-V oil pan clearance.
I was trying to install my headers today and I figured it would be a good
time to show how nice the Cadillac CTS-V oil pan fits in a G-Body platform.
It hangs down only about an inch below the crossmember.
Chevy 6.0 LS Transplanted Into A 2001 GMC 3500HD !
This swap was done using a 6.0 LS engine from a Denali, a Current
Performance wiring harness and most of the original Silverado truck engine
compartment components like the radiator, radiator hoses, heater hoses and
cooling fans. We didn't touch on it in the video, but the engine was
converted to a single line fuel rail with no return line. This was done by
using an inline fuel filter from a Corvette which has an internal pressure
regulator and a return line going from the filter back to the fuel tank.

How To LSx Motor Mount Adapter Swap Plates (One Inch Set-Back Plates)
This video shows how LSx motor mount swap adapter plates look like and how
they are used. It is common for these to be installed backwards and then
the engine will be way too far forward in the engine bay. I hope that this
video will help cut out some of the confusion for future swappers.
These mounts where purchased on eBay for about $45.
