Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

Re: How to: Ruin a perfectly good C10

I don't see a hood yet, what are your plans? Is this option still on the table?

Still in the back of my mind, though I no longer own an early hood. I’ve been toying with the idea of a ‘68 clip swap, too, but that drives the need for paint and continues the snowball. Plan for now is to bolt the ‘70 hood back on using the All-American Billet low profile, stock location hinges. We’ll see what actually happens

Re: How to: Ruin a perfectly good C10

Well, the kids are back in school, so it’s garage time

Made a small amount of progress tonight by installing the correct LS engine mounts from PB. I had previously been trying to use the smallblock mounts with adapter plates, which was causing all sorts of issues, most immediately, poor header fitment. The LS specific mounts move the engine forward slightly, but most importantly are about an inch taller than the SBC version.

The long tubes from Speed Engineering now fit like they were made for it: the drivers side front primary tucks in nice and tight to the block for steering shaft clearance, the passenger front primaries now clear the upper coilover mount, and the collectors tuck up in the frame quite nicely

That's looking sweet! I hope you complete this before you move again. I want to see (and hear) it in person.

Re: How to: Ruin a perfectly good C10

Nice!!!! Looks great Chris!!! I ran a set of Chevelle headers on my '82 C10 with a 350 and they tucked up nice like that too....only difficulty was the factory trans crossmember....just wish mine had the LS power like yours...maybe for Raymond

It was a huge relief. I had nearly resigned to using manifolds...

Thanks a lot Chevelle headers usually do well on these trucks. After talking to Speed Engineering, apparently the C10 and Chevelle longtubes are the same part with different part numbers...
