  1. Random thought thread

    I have about 2500 into this swap which includes buying an LS trans and having it gone though. You can re-use the 4l80E and just get the crank adapter. Yes, 6.0 flexplate works on 5.3. No, you can convert the 4L60E trans plug to the 4L80 and the ECM will run either one. I like to do a new front main, timing chain, and oil pump. Only mess with rear main if it's leaking and then just buy the whole seal carrier, not just the seal. It's cheap. I've not had any bad lifters yet. Valvesprings and seals are good to do if you change the cam, just seals otherwise.

    Yes, same truck. I ended up not doing anything. I was scared of the Govlock and didn't want to spend the money for a good new diff. I'll fix it when I find a deal on a used diff. I just followed some directions on http://www.lt1swap.com/wiringharness.htm. I tried to ID what functions I needed to keep from the truck and adapted them to the LS motor and trans.

    You mean the one with a mail box as a hood scoop? I may have vids of that.

    Calling this one DONE. Mother in Law's 1994 C1500 Reg cab stepside 2wd. Old 305 was TIRED and #7 was fouling plugs. Got a 5.3 and dropped it in. Very small Comp Cam makes some cool idle noises. Used a Trailblazer converter inside an LS 4l60e that I had rebuilt. Only major parts purchase was the Dirty Dingo AC bracket that allowed me to keep the factory AC compressor/system. Used some cheap "LSX Innovations" swap mounts. Hated them, should've went with Hooker or Dirty Dingo. Of course did all the harness work myself. The difference is amazing. This is faster at 1/4 throttle than the old motor at WOT. MPG are almost DOUBLE.. and I haven't tuned it yet. The power is great, i'm in love with it. I'll hopefully get with Gammey to learn some tricks on the HP Tuners to get it tuned up, but it runs pretty dang good as is. Overall i'm pretty happy with it being a very low buck swap.

    That thing is about an LS away form being a decent car.
