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.
How To: 4 Wire LS Wiring Harness Conversion, Part 2
In part two we begin modifying wires in order to make the wiring harness
fit differently on the engine as the computer is being relocated from its
original factory location. Power wires and grounds are dealt with, and we
show how to modify the factory truck injector connections to work with an
LS1 intake and injectors.

The motor mount adapter plates used in this video place the engine one inch
too far forward. You need the adapter plates called the "One Inch Set-back"
plates. They'll place the engine and trans perfectly so that you can use
your original driveshaft without modification. They can be found on eBay
for $60 shipped.
