Re: LS1/t56 swap

I was planning to weld it all solid as far as the suspension to the frame goes. How its sitting now I think Ill be able to pull it out of the top. I really really hate pulling engines from the bottom. I did it once when it was fwd. Not an easy task if you dont have a lift, for me anyways lol.

I swear I had this all mocked up with the rack in. Nothing moved/bent. Worst case I reshape the center of the hood a little. I think im goin...

Re: LS1/t56 swap

Thanks! I was literally stairing at those front brakes for about half an hour.. Thats good to know! I was really thinking about 2x6 haha.

Re: LS1/t56 swap

I had a fiero for awhile and was going to do a 3400 turbo setup in it until I realized I couldnt control a slide. sold it shortly after! practice and better suspension could have solved it I bet.. one of my dr...
