Colorado LS Swap
Adventures in swapping an LS1 into my 2004 Chevy Colorado pickup...and getting everything to work "as factory"...it's a 2003 LM7, 5.3L with the Intake manifold, fuel system, cam and valve springs from a 2002 C5 Corvette. The engine is managed with an E40 ECM from a 2006 GTO, custom programmed to work with the existing BCM in the truck, so that all the electronics and gauges function properly. Transmission is a built up 4L60E 4-speed automatic, and the rear end is 3.73:1 G80 with a locker.
