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.

windage tray, pick up tube, oil pan, heads, push rods and rocker arms.

2003 Corvette LS1 5.7 / 350 Engine, very nice running -- just listen!
This LS1 motor was just recently removed from a 2003 Corvette. Price
$2650. It had been lightly burnt on top. The injection has been removed,
and all the gaskets in the engine have been replaced, including head
gaskets. This engine has been converted to carburetion by means of an
Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake manifold and a MSD ignition kit. NOTE: if you
don't need the intake manifold and/or MSD, the engine alone may be sold
separately for $2000. Carburetor and Exhaust pipes NOT included.
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.
