is that the s10 header or g body. Also does your passenger rear coil hit the air box ? Real close to sitting my 5.3 in the 80 Elco.

Short tube headers may fit easier , but will cost you power over long tubes on an LS engine.
I have shorty headers

they are shorty headers, we just have to make a minor
Adjustment on the drivers side firewall for them to fit other than that everything else fits the truck pan even clears but I offered a jegs oil pan that is designed for ls swap g body’s it was on back order until April but when I called they had one at their other hub and will ship it tomorrow

Ok dropped my radiator off for a full flush and repair (it had a few leaks) was told it will prob not be able to be repaired the copper fins crumble to the touch, so I need to start looking for a new radiator, I already have dual electric fans for extra cooling what’s the best radiator to use that does not break the bank
