    I think I saw where he is doing a ls swap in it now.

    I think that's a different one. He just listed it for sale so he could get a different truck for the LS swap.

    CT Morgan would definitely rock that and crrently has a confused sales manager trying to figure out how to order one from the factory.

    Coming along, going to have to sweat my ass off this week in the evenings as I wont get any time to mess with it this weekend. Coil packs and the harness going on this week. Still have lots of wiring to redo, it was a mess so I pretty much cut everything out and will start over.

    The only thing left that I have to buy is the driveshaft.

    Looks good, making some good progress. Just as a warning, as I have the issue with my swapped C10, but having the intake over the upper radiator hose might have a big influence on your intake temps. I forget the specifics as far as temps that I see in my truck but from a log it gets hot enough to pull timing. Are you running the factory radiator? Did you have the harness reworked or are you doing it yourself? Is the AC hooked up, I see the compressor.

    Eventually ill swap to a 2010 Camaro water pump that doesn't require a 1/4 mile long radiator hose and will fix that issue, hopefully its not a big issue, its more or less a stock engine right now.

    Running a PSI Conversions harness, the factory harness was not in great shape.
    Factory radiator with 99-03 Ford Winstar fans, they will suck leaves and ship up into the grill.
    It will have A/C but probably wont worry about it till next spring at this point.

    Hell yeah. Clean looking truck too, though that push bumper setup can go away.

    i'm not a huge fan of the rims, but that thing with more fitting rims and a ZL1 motor would be DD's in your face levels of good.

    I hate the wheels and the push bumper as well.

    This should be a slick little truck when it's done. It certainly wont be a DD, just another toy in his collection of things. He has a good size car collection (15-20 cars). I have known this guy well before working here.

    Motor, trans, and headers are in. Waiting on the harness and drive shaft.

    Sorry, thought you were asking for the other truck. this is an LSA motor I am pretty sure. Project was started prior to me but pretty sure it's an LSA


    not sure you can order the Lt4 yet but I could be wrong.

    Dropped the yoke off this morning to have the driveshaft made. Fuel system is done. Tranny lines, some wiring final touches, tranny linkage will all hopefully be done this weekend.

    Its getting close and I have a deadline of Sept 15th to get her done

    One thing at a time.

    Down at the self storage place I keep my trucks at somebody had a '76 Chevy short bed sitting there without an engine for the past couple of months, this past week they turned it around and there is a 5.3 and a trans in the bed now.

    The last 10% of these projects takes up 90% of the time, bolting the engine in is the easy part.

    Reviewed the sales results from the recent Mecum Dallas auction, the 2wd prices are just nuts.

    Realizing that I have not taken many pictures lately, Ill try to snap some tonight. Ive made the determination that the truck absolutely will be done for Saturday baring anything catastrophic. Hoping to have the tuner come by tomorrow to delete vats/egr/ect and Friday ill drive the bitch open headers to the exhaust shop.

    Saturday is C10's in the Park

    Should be 400+ 47-87 Chevy trucks/blazers/suburbans really looking forward to it.

    Some good arial shots in here from last years

    Should have a base tune in it tonight or tomorrow, all she needs is fluids and a tune at this point. Still have to finish a little wiring under the dash as well.

    Yep, that's actually a factory to truck upper hose. Eventually I can replace the water pump with one from a 2010 Camarillo and run a much shorter rad hose. Wasn't a priority going into the project tho
