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.
Road fraud attempt on truck driver
Driver attempts to commit road fraud for a fast payday on a trucker and his
company. The location was in California in heavy rush-hour conditions.
Camera system was a Dieselboss.com DB4 model on medium quality setting.

1985 GMC truck LS swap start
My 85 GMC truck. I just got it running, 03-09-13, and decided to share a
video. The motor is a 2001 5.3 liter vortec out of a Silverado. I've been
driving it around the neighborhood until I finish all the little things.
It has great power over the old 350.
Here is a build thread I made for it:
How To: 4 Wire LS Wiring Harness Conversion, Part 1
In part one we show how to begin disassembling a 4.8L/5.3L/6.0L Truck
harness in order to modify it to work on an LS1 intake and be fully
compatible with an older wiring system so you can use it in a classic
project. All the power wires will be modified and condensed in order to
convert the harness to a "4 wire hookup".

GM LS1 V8 Engine Swap Part I
Catching up on the times.. I have thrown in the towel on old obsolete
engines and have moved forward into a newer technology. I have given up on
my 455 for the simple fact that it is expensive to drive with high fuel
prices.. and an LS engine will provide me with better all around
performance and economy..
UPDATE: I ended up tossing a Q-jet on the 5.3 and calling it a day with the
LS1 cam this little guy pulls to 6000 no problem and melts the tires
without a problem.. You simply can't beat these little motors.
