Re: 1966 chevy truck engine swap to LS1

GREAT looking build! Where did you relocate the battery ? And your AC deflector balls look terrific! Have you found a plastic plater or replacements?

Thanks for sharing!

Re: 1966 chevy truck engine swap to LS1

Very nice, very clean. What did you use for the cold air intake set up, a kit available somewhere or pieced together ?

I ordered a replacement 1965 Impala Aluminum Radiator, modified the mounts on my truck and had a couple extra bungs added for the steam line, I also had a fan shroud custom built for it. I believe its a 14 inch fan, I think it's a 2000 cfm, pull fan.

I relocated the battery under the bed, passenger side. Battery box that drops down for maintenance, etc. The terminal under the hood are for trickle charging and jump starting.

Ac deflector ball were re-chromed back east, plastic plater/chrome. I could find the details on that if you want. I could not find replacement deflector balls any where.

Re: 1966 chevy truck engine swap to LS1

Here are some interior details! Custom made vent plugs, Speaker box, customer redesigned kickers moving speaker to the vent hole. So you won't lick the speaker and I'm not using the vents anymore. Remember I also closed up the cowl vent on the hood. See past pages for picture on that.

Here are more interior details! AC vents with custom plenum to work with the Old Air Product AC lit I used. I love the stock controls,with the little button for the AC or/off.

That is AWESOME. Question for you, I have a set of shaved doors with no glass, was considering the solid window. How hard was the swap to that? Would you do it again??
