Thumbs up

Nice build, I'm very interested to see the progress on this.

With those motor mounts how does the shifter hole line up? Do you have a picture of clearance of the oil pan from sway bar, cross member, and steering rack?

had to use an 04 gto oil pan to make it front sump
after that it lined up perfectly

and for the clearance I wanted for the t56 I had to cut out the trans tunnel
so still making the new one from sheet metal

i'll post some pics of progress once the rain stops and i can get back to welding

Looking forward to the pics and the details for the rest of this swap.

I have a standard 69 Cougar being rebuilt that just so happens to have a LS1 sitting next to it in the shop just waiting for the right time to drop it in.

How is the clearance for spark plug changes? Some older posts on the web say its tight fight (as in 1 or 2 inches of room) with the shock towers.

I have about 3 inches each side of the engine. My headers and spark plugs fit fine, went with iridium pulsars so about $25 each but supposed to spark 2x to burn fuel better.

trans mount

cut the top of the radiator support out so the engine would go in more smoothly, so why not make it tubular and removable

9.5in rear end

gauges I'm using, basic 6 so far but I'm going to add stuff like pitch and yaw, and probably an artificial horizon, and if i can find a way to have an altimeter

top box is the 69 mustang chassis harness, just gonna cut out all th engine parts
lower box is the computer and wiring for a de-smogged ls1, gonna have to dino tune before it will run well

just dropped of my yokes and measurements to have a drive shaft built
said it would be around $500 at pickup for the toughest one they could make

You said your headers are fitting just fine, so they clear the steering (not pointing right at it)? What heads are those? If they are stock corvette what year did they come from?

the heads are stock for an 02 corvette
and the headers end above the steering box, shorties is the best I could fit, but still 3in collector
plus the steering box is an after market 16:1 power steering kit so actually little different shape than the stock box

my plan for exhaust is 3in all the way with and X in the middle to equalize back pressure ending in dual flow-master 50s, which I've found a way to stand on edge between the fuel cell and the leaf springs, so maximum ground clearance

just got to wait for my drive-shaft then its off to the exhaust shop
I want to get all the metal work done on the car and painted with rubberized coating before I start on wiring, hope its as painless as they say, did on of these kits on my 70 camaro while back and it took all day, at least the ls1 kit is mostly just plugs and no soldering

Headman block huggers. They come straight down from between the last 2 cylinders. I'll post a pic later.
