I've been pretty busy accumulating the parts needed for this build and starting to mock some things up over the past few weeks.
I've collected my S10 chassis, LS motor from a 2001 Silverado (LM7) complete with harness and computer, 4L60e Transmission, original and salvageable rear fenders, tailgate and front bumper.
I've also reworked and thinned the stock LS harness (info found on LT1Swap.com
]) and am having the computer programmed with all unnecessary items (like emissions, neutral safety switch, etc,) removed as well as as a base tune applied).
I'm in the process now of mocking in the LS motor to the S10 chassis including motor mounts, exhaust configuration, fuel lines, etc. I figure it's much easier to do all this when there is no sheet metal in the way and the frame and components have not yet been powder coated/cleaned up.
Below are several pics of my progress over the past few weeks with more to come soon!
