Robert,

Me thinks that falls into the "I just couldn't help myself!" category. yahoo

Lots of others have taken the plunge (not gone that way myself) and am sure they are willing to help/share experiences to solve any issues you come upon.

I see it has the cable type throttle, a FiTech, and March like billet brackets so you're ahead of the game. For an AD install lose the factory type T-stat housing and use a non angled one. The instant start, baby butt smooth idle, 300k mile lifetime, five times the hp and torque, and 20 plus mpg are all different which you'll get used to it but if you die the undertaker won't be able to get the smile off your face.

I got a killer deal on it so I just couldn’t pass it up! I stumbled across it on Facebook Marketplace. The previous owner bought it from the Hot Rod Engine Company out of Seattle a few years ago and never installed it. He said he’d changed his mind and was going with a stroker instead. It was still wrapped on the pallet when I picked it up. It’s a 6.0 with a stage 3 cam rated at 500+ hp. I got it for a fraction of what he paid for it and couldn’t be happier! I started it on the stand and it sounds wicked! 😱

I put a bone stock 50k mile 4.8 in my 51. It’s coupled with a SM319 three speed ( wanted to keep the column shift). 22 mpg at 75 in the interstate. Starts with ease at any temperature!

Check out the "Motorbooks Workshop" by Joseph Potak. " GM LS-series engines, the complete swap manual".

You won't regret going LS!

Are you going with automatic or manual?
