First official start up of my 55' Chevy now that the motor is mostly complete. The engine is a 5.3L LM7, with LS1 intake manifold, modified stock truck manifolds, dual 2 1/4 Exhaust going into Thush mufflers. I didn't have a MAF sensor hooked up so when I first started it, the idle was jumping around a bit. Last clip is after I added dual tailpipes out under the rear bumper.
1955 Chevy Two Door Wagon, First Test Drive LS1 5.3L
I take my 55' Chevy out on its maiden voyage since the installation of a
modern GM powerplant. I installed a 5.3L LS series V8 with LS1 intake
manifold to dress it up. Behind it is a Borg Warner T10 4 Speed with Hurst
Shifter. Car still has the original rear end which needs to be addressed
because of the howling sounds you can hear in the video.

Just a couple of quick tests to make sure my engine swap will fire-up
before sending the headers off to be ceramic coated and assembling the

year-old car through some of the tightest curves in California to find out
if there really is such a thing as a Hot Rod for drivers.
How To: 4 Wire LS Wiring Harness Conversion, Part 3
In part three we finish up the wiring harness, centralize the grounds, and
bundle the wires. To finish the harness, all bundles of wires are wrapped
in split loom for protection and to retain the factory look.

2000 LS1 and Wire Harness description
I talk about a used LS1 we purchased for installation in a Devin SS we're
building right now. Don't take my wiring call-outs verbatim. I have some
notes that I will post on www.lowetechrods.com in the coming for those
adventurous enough to do it on your own. Those that aren't - well, that's
where my services come in.
This is my third LS1 retrofit installation in the last 5 years doing them
simply as a hobby initially.
