LY6/TR6060 Swap from a 5.3/4L60E

Good morning to all. I have decided to record my LY6/TR6060 swap. My truck is a 1968 C10. It was basically built from the ground up. As it stands, my work truck sports a 5.5/4L60E. I just wanna make it a daily driver. I'll post pics as the builds goes on.

Re: LY6/TR6060 Swap from a 5.3/4L60E

A lot has happened since I posted on this thread. Things happen behind the before one of the trucks can built, LSx swap, again. I ordered a high hump cover and installed just to yes fit. I ordered a power booster hydraulic clutch kit from CaptainFab, a board member. The LY6/TR6060 fully assembled and ready to drop in the truck. I also installed the hydraulic lines and bleeder clutch kit from Tick performance. Only thing left to do is figure out which route I can take for the wire harness to power the engine. The setup is 58x relucter wheel, with DBW. I need a throttle body and possibly a door pedal. I wish I could go DBC. But something will give. Her are some pics.

Re: LY6/TR6060 Swap from a 5.3/4L60E

Yes. Updates required. I just got my stock F-Body clutch kinda figured out for my T56 in a Blazer so I am interested in your configuration. I also just purchased the Tick remote speed bleeder setup but have not installed it yet.

Re: LY6/TR6060 Swap from a 5.3/4L60E

On my 68 LS swapped C10 I mounted the ECM and relays behind the glove box. I had to section the glove box liner to make room. Then ran the wire loom for the engine under the heater box.
On a Camaro L92 swap I did a DBC throttle body from Holley. ECM and programming was from Howell. It worked well.
On a friends LS swap he used a LS3 intake and Corvette throttle body DBW. He used Speartech and it worked well.
To each his own.

Re: LY6/TR6060 Swap from a 5.3/4L60E

@LS Short box, Interesting. I haven't decided what harness or engine management to use yet. but I'm definitely up for ideas. My LY6 has the stock DBW throttle body. I have a L92 intake and a LS3 intake. I would like to use my stock foot pedal. I also have a stock harness and ECM and TCM to use with my set up. sooner or later ill figure it out. I'm just collecting parts.

If you use the the DBW you won't be able to use a "stock" pedal. I believe most harness suppliers use the Corvette DBW pedal. If you go the DBC I used the Lokar pedal and Lokar cable.

Re: LY6/TR6060 Swap from a 5.3/4L60E

I ordered the hydraulic clutch kit from a board member, captainfab454. I gotta say it’s a wrap. His kit is awesome. He did all the hard work when it comes to playing with the clutch linkage. Thanks @captainfab454. The hydraulic clutch master cylinder is installed. I’ll post pics tomorrow when I have daylight. I’ll set up the linkage when I install the clutch pedal. No need to have a clutch pedal and I’m not shifting gears.

Re: LY6/TR6060 Swap from a 5.3/4L60E

Here are some pics of the clutch mounted in the engine bay. The foot pedal linkage is installed also. I need to figure out how to make each pedal the same height. As it stands now, the accelerator pedal, brake pedal, and clutch pedal all have different heights.

Re: LY6/TR6060 Swap from a 5.3/4L60E

Some how my pics are coming out jacked up and turned side ways. Iím sure you all have the idea. I need to find a banjo fitting because I canít have the clutch line higher than the reservoir.

Re: LY6/TR6060 Swap from a 5.3/4L60E

looking good. I did the captfab kit too, the one threaded rod in the linkage inside the firewall can be adjusted to set pedal height. You should be able to play with it and get matched to the brake pedal at least. I ended up lowering my pedal almost 1/2 way down in travel, the hydraulic system seems to release the clutch without a whole lot of travel needed. With the clutch all the way up against the rubber button, I felt like my knee was up almost in the steering wheel

Re: LY6/TR6060 Swap from a 5.3/4L60E

I also did the Captain's Clutch kit and it worked very well. I ran a hard line from the master to a fabbed bracket, then a flex line to the slave. Also used a Tick speed bleeder.
As far a the pedal height I made a sure I had a clean clutch release then I made some adjustments to the pedal height to match the brake pedal. See attached pics.
