1965 Snoopy C10 build, LS2, SWB

Here it goes guys! My C10 has been driven a lot for the last 2 years been used as a DD truck. Original power plant was a 1965 327, turbo 350 and PS, PDB. The truck picked up a nickname as Snoopy the day I brought it home by my mother in law. It came from it having alot of plasti dip. PO had painted all trim, grille, wheels, everything black. Well I got it home removed all spray paint and got started putting back closer to original well besides a few things. Truck got disc brakes added in the front and all new moog steering and suspension parts, and a 5/7 static drop kit with a basic C notch. After that truck got all new oak wood bed added, being that it had a plywood bed when I bought. Well last week coming home from Panama city Beach Florida from cruising the coast which was 8.5hr drive one way, the engine dropped a valve and scattered the entire bottom end. Being that I'm already a huge LS guy it was no question what to do. This week I picked up a 2007 trailblazer SS motor and trans. Ls2 with 4l70e. Super excited to get started, hate not being able to drive my C10. Any guys with some insight on these trucks I appreciate any help, tips, tricks anything. Being this is my first ls swap I'm doing lots and lots of research. Plan to retain factory fuel tank, and plumb in a fairly stock motor. I'm on a budget, so any pointers I appreciate. Sorry to be long winded. Hard to be quiet on something I love sooo much! Thanks guys.

I'll be along for the ride on this one . I would love an LS motor but the cost of getting them to the Uk just makes it unaffordable .

"Welcome" to you and your build, despite being here for some time.

Like Martin above, I would love a truck with all the modern stuff attached, but over here in England it would be a costly exercise, so I am happy to watch and cheer your build.

Im sure this one wont be near as nice as yours, im 25 and on a pretty tight budget unfortunately. Itll be awesome when done though!!! Trucks practically my DD so ive gotta get to going on it. Cleaned engine yesterday, waiting for trans to get done to start the install. Trans guy found some burnt clutches when replacing output shaft so hes gonna rebuild for me. Dont want to have to pull again for awhile.
