Re: LS swap officially underway

Did you consider a coil over conversion for the rear?

Re: LS swap officially underway

I would like to see some pictures of what your going to do with the fuel system - still planning to run dual tanks or going to a single tank? I appreciate this thread!

so far, I'm going with a 87 fuel injected replacement gas tank, and Ep381 fuel pump (stock for 2001 5.3LS truck) and corvette fuel filter/regulator

I'm planning on eventually running the other tank, but for now I'm just going to use the one, i just gotta remember not to accidentally hit the switch over switch

Re: LS swap officially underway

Are you reusing the stock fuel lines and stock rubber hoses? I just didnt know what kind of psi they are rated for. Are you putting the corvette fuel filter where the original one mount - I think its on the passenger frame rail.

I'm paying a few guys that are really slick at squarebody LS conversions. I was originally going to do the swap myself, until i found out about these guys, they are really sharp on rewiring and locating the ecm and tuning...

pretty sure they are mostly using the stock hard fuel lines from the donor Tahoe

I think fuel injection requires pretty high psi. 60 for sure so probably cant use stock fuel hoses. Not rated for it?
