Wanna know what you LQ9 swappers are running. Part numbers or models I can pick from at the JY.

It's my understanding that the truck accessories will hit the k member, oil pan needs more clearance and the intake will hit the hood. Has anybody used the hummer oil pan?

I have the hummer pan but I haven't installed the engine yet. From what I've seen online it hangs down a little lower than the k member.

That's not too bad, my 7qt on the 355 hangs a little lower as it is

I will. I'm sure others might beat me to it. Work is slow now and I need some cash flow to spring for the new converter. Would like to at least get my engine back home from my uncle's shop to do some test fitting.

Overview of the LS family from the May 2016 Super Chevy. Also features an '81 El Camino with a mountain of chrome poking out of the engine bay on the cover. If you don't buy paper magazines much, this issue would be worth purchasing as a keeper for the reference shelf. It also has a good write-up of vacuum advance ignition basics.

Depends on what you have, where you're starting from. Do you have a decent transmission? Serviceable V8 radiator? Exhaust? Fuel pump? Can you fab little things and be creative or do you have to keep buying/paying for stuff?

I probably have between $2500-$3500 in mine.

The biggies for me were:
6 liter from wrecked Escalade $1300
Intake and MSD combo $700
headers/exhaust $550
carburetor $300
odds and ends, misc. etc $200

The funny thing was the motor mounts were only $69 - I figured they'd have to be custom and very expensive
If you don't mind my asking, where did you source the mounts?
