Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

Using your truck in a parade is so cool. I used my Jeep years ago. Great memories. Camper is looking killer.

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

Been playing with the next evolution of my drive train. I will retain the 4.8L for now but will be adding a LS1 intake and some GTO coil covers. The main reason for the change is to lower the overall height on the engine to eliminate the hump on the bed floor. Engine in the photo is a older 5.3 I picked a while back for a builder. I am also thinking of milling off the GTO letters and replacing them with COE in the same font.

Luv the idea you have for the engine and the subtle custom word change!

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

love the COE label idea, but since the bed will be over the engine, wont it just be for you?

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

Great idea with the COE. Problem is when you show off your motor hardly anyone will catch it, but when they do...It's the little things.

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

Do you have a manifold to fit the covers?

I think any cover he uses will need some tweaking because he uses the intake backwards with the throttle body on the trans side.

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

You are correct joedoh, The GTO covers are designed for a LS6 intake not the LS1. The LS1 covers are for the Corvette and have an odd shaped cut out for the alternator or it may be the PS pump. Either way I liked the more closed look of the GTO ones. Either set will require mods for the reversed intake and wiring changes I made. I will also have to change the fuel line arrangement.
Trust me, nothing has been plug and play on this build. That being said I do enjoy a good challenge.

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

OK, so i finally got around to installing the LS1 intake on the COE. It will take a bit of trimming to make the GTO coil covers fit due the the wiring that was done on the initial install of the truck intake. I could rewire the whole harness to hide it all under the covers but man would that be a lot of work. On the plus side, I now have the clearance to have a flat floor on the truck bed. Mean while, I have been busy installing a Mercuiser 260 HP boat engine in my son in laws C-30. And yes a boat engine will work in a car or truck, assuming it rotates CCW

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

Nice job on the flat floor. I have always been a fan of boat motors. You can run them wide open throttle all day...try that in your truck.
