Default Ls1/t56 swap

Finally getting around to starting my swap... been gathering parts. Got motor and trans

Pic of my $300 car 82 gl



Ls1 with head studs and btr stage 4 cam... should be fun



Current performance wiring harness showed up this week...



All I've got for now... I've got holley oil pan, hooker manifolds, master cylinder, and quite a few other things sitting here.... just waiting on a few things to show up from STS machining. Hope to be updating this regularly soon with progress

Nice! Sounds like about where I'm at, large piles of parts. Post pics of the car its going in, what is it? Why T56? Great tranny, I'm just curious because I had quite an internal debate about that vs the TKO 600, the TKO won cause I just don't enjoy 6 speeds as much as a 5.

Ahh yeah sorry forgot to post a pic of the car, it's up now...

I bought motor and trans out of a 2002 Camaro from a buddy for a steal. The car is already a manual so really wanted to keep it that way.

Originally I was going to turbo it and 4l80 swap it. But now I want to keep it clean and simple, being the car is really clean, and have a nice fun daily car.

Thanks! Been following your build since I got the car. I am worried about the shifter, i think it's going to sit back a little farther than the stock one in the car... did you have to cut the hole out? Or are you going to run a offset shifter? I ordered a lock out delete so it will clear tunnel.. trying to keep from cutting up anything if I dont need to.

Hoping sts mounts and few other things ship out tomorrow or this week. Once they are here progress will speed up for sure

I have 25mm adapters on it. Going to order some 15mm for the front, due to them sticking out more than I like. As of right now the back is on...
