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 Connect a LSx Series V8 to older GM 4 Speed Manual Transmission
In this video I show you how to connect your original older 4 speed manual
transmission such as a Borg Warner Super T10 or a Muncie M20/M21/M22 to
your new LS Series engine you might want to swap into your car.
Part Numbers you need:
Sachs - Clutch Kit Part # K5552-03 from O'Reilly's
Note *(10 Spline clutch)
Sachs - Flywheel Part # NFW1050 from O'Reilly's
LS2/LS7 Pilot Bearing Part # : 57080 from O'Reilly's

Part 2 Cleaning LS Throttle Body | Vortec 4.8 5.3 6.0 6.2 Liter
Part 2 of 2, of cleaning the throttle body on my 2007 GMC Sierra. This
works on new body style trucks... '07+. Will work on the 4.8, 6.0 and 6.2.
Will probably work for older LS engines as well. Regardless, please check
your factory service manual before starting.
1999 s10 ls1 swap
It took me 2 months and 3 weeks to complete the swap after I built the
engine. Cab was removed and everything under the truck cab forward has
been detailed and painted. Battery is under right rear of cab,
transmission cooler and fan are under the bed. Engine is out of a 01
Corvette and has a Lunati Voodoo cam 60510. Home built 1 3/4 stainless
fenderwell headers into 2.5" Exhaust
into dynatech mufflers with C6 Vette tips. Home built air intake that goes
straight down into 3.5" aluminum tubing off of the throttle body and into a
T with 2 air filters tucked under the front bumper. Truck has A/C and all
the creature comforts. It drives like a beast thanks to Pete for the
perfect tune. Truck is not finished but I do drive it. Have a couple more
connections to finish out under the hood then Ford 9" rear and new wheels
and tires. Hopefully in the fall I will remove the bed and detail out the
frame back there.
Referee certified LS1/6speed 85 SS montecarlo
OK i know my camera skills were lacking. theres a bunch more videos on my
channel of this car..most filmed by other people so u dont have to feel
cheated. in my defense i was nervous in the beginning and excited at the
end ..in addition to trying to film with a flip camera not really looking
through its tiny little screen. if anyone can feel me on that
100% homebuilt 85 SS monte. LS1, 6 speed, OBD2 conversion. complete
drivetrain, harness, fuel system, dash and other misc. parts out of a 99 SS
Camaro. the Camaro only had 47k miles when it
came into my possesion. rest of the car including heater, lights, wipers,
cruise control and things like that all being powered from the Camaros harness/controls. none of
the 1985 harness remains except the dome light circuit. t
GM A-body 12 bolt reareand with 4.11:1 gears and a true track posi fitted
with the ss Camaros 12"
rear disc brakes. shortened upper trailing arms and adjustable lowers with
spherical rod ends to fit the older/beefier/wider rearend. still a work in
progress at this point, but to me getting the referee to approve my work
was a big deal and a huge step. this car passes california smog legally! go
green!...well as green as you can go with a full size, v8 powered car thats
built for thrashing.
