I put this here because most of the modifications/upgrades apply to trucks as well. The first picture is of the truck when I bought it. It was an original California black plate truck. It had minimal rust, most do to a leaky windshield and the exhaust exiting out the sides. The next picture is a rendering of what I envision it looking like when I'm done (rendering by Zumo graphics).

List of work completed:

Front suspension: ART bags, ART StrongArms, CPP 13" drilled and slotted rotors with dual piston calipers and modular 2" dropped spindle. 1.25" sway bar.

OK, the hard part is done (not!). While the engine is out of the way, I plan on smoothing the firewall, redoing the front brake lines, redoing the front airlines, clean and paint. Then on to the fun stuff......

Are you going to use the stock exhaust manifolds or headers? I have been trying to get my stock manifolds to work but both sides are hitting the frame. I have heard that big block headers will work if you use LS1 flanges on them. I will be trying that soon.

I wanted to use the stock ones, however if you're having problems, I may have to try something else. I think I remember Shifty of GenIII say something about the camaro/corvette stock manifolds would work. I'll try to do some research on that one.

What are you using for motor mounts?
I ran into this problem on my 73 pickup when I was using ECE's motor mounts on my 6.0L/4L80E documented here:
http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=193657

This is with ECE mounts on my '73 frame:


I am selling those now...

This past weekend I replaced the ECE mounts (which posistions the SBC about 3" forward of a normal SBC) and put S&P motor plates on it (which mounts it back in the same position that a SBC would mount. I expected grinding on the port above to clearance it and was told 00-02 F-body manifolds would work, but I believe I have it to where I can use the factory Truck manifolds.

Thats the same problem I am having and I am using the S&P plates also. Summit has big block headers for $99 and the flanges are $16 I am going to try that route and maybe I can help us all. Sorry to hijack your thread.

I'm really curious to know how it turns out for you.

Very strange about people having problems w/ECE mounts - they worked like butter for me

Found out why they worked for you in your post/pics. You used '98 Manifolds. I used '00 manifolds based on other recommendations. I may look for those now... What specifically are they off of.

http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/attach...chmentid=57781

Hart_Rod, Get these and you will be fine... (sent Shifty a PM on what they are off of) I am guessing a '98 F-body...

Shifty - come on down!!!

I'm using the ECE motor mounts. I was hoping to be able to use the stock manifolds, but looks like that might not work. A buddy of mine has an 02 LS1, I'll borrow his and see how it works. Oh, well not quite there yet. Spent half the day cleaning (still not done) and started working on fill the holes in the firewall. I also have some rust repair to do, but pretty minimal. After that I will be moving to the rockers and and a small amount of rust on the floors/kickpanels. Here are some more pics, the old burb is definitely at parade rest now.

Re: 1969 Burb build-up (Bags, 5.3/4L60E, repaint, interior....)

I also gutted all the engine & dash wiring. I enjoyed this quite a bit, since PO had cut and spliced into every wire on the truck. I found many melted or burnt wires as I was doing this. Also, cut the firewall to accept a new painless wiring harness.

Chris (CaptKaos),

Just read your build post, nice job BTW. I know ECE designed their motor mount kit for the 67-72. Could this be the problem with the exhaust in your truck? I don't know what the differences are in the frames. Also, do you have some pics and descriptions of your fuel system. What tank, fuel pump, type of lines.....????

Thanks for the props. I talked to ECE before ordering them and asked them what all is included in the kit. I looked at them on their webpage and the pieces they are selling along with the mounts appeared to me they were 73-87 pieces. The guy on the phone confirmed this with me and said they should work without the stands on the 73-87. Well they do if you build custom headers, but I am planning on running either 1 or 2 rear mounted turbos on this and wanted to keep the manifolds....

I don't know what they are doing with the position of the mount as I know you 67-72 guys would have to drill new holes to get the 73-87 brackets on there, but if they mount like mine do, it will be way forward from the normal SBC position.

I already knew I would have some grinding to do to miss the EGR port, but with the ECE mounts it was hitting the frame mount that they are selling you. With using the S&P mount I still had to clearance the EGR port, but with the ECE mounts I would have to cut it completely off, or cut a hole in the frame mount. I have been wanting to see Shifty's pics for comparison, just haven't had the time...

As far as the front section of the frame, the 73-87 is the same as the 67-72. Which is why you can put a 73-87 under a 67-72 to upgrade one to newer parts.

Fuel system I am using a 1987-91 EFI Blazer/Jimmy fuel tank, stock sending unit and a AC241 in tank pump. Out of the sending unit is 3 lines: supply, return, Evap. I am tying the same 3 lines from the LS motor into those lines using hardline down the frame and braided line at the front to the motor and at the rear to the tank. At the end of the hardline on the supply line is the standard AC fuel filter.

I won't take up a ton more room than I already have hi-jacking your thread, but on Post #14 there are 2 shots of the front/rear of my fuel lines running down the passenger side of the framerail. When we pull the body back off after aligning the body panels up better I will post more pics to that thread. I may have some more at home also.
