Default Ls crossmember.

You guys that are running LS's in your 240s, just curious what everyone is using for mounts or crossmembers. Someone told me you meed a custom crossmember to clear the steering shaft and allow use of the normal pans. Also what headers are you using with your mounts?

I recently got an lm7 and am thinking of making something work.

Thanks!

Modifying the cross member is unnecessary. Just use the mounts from STS and a Hummer H3 oil pan and pick up. You will have to cut the pan and reweld it as it's far too deep.

With transmissions like the 6 speed manual you'll have to clearance the tunnel slightly at the firewall opening. If you go with a manual then use the TR6060 as this has a remote shifter.

Header choice would be modified tri-y's from a HSV VE-VF / Chevy SS.

This thread documents a 6.0L very well. He's taken a minimalist approach and has turned out very clean: https://ozvolvo.org/discussion/4623/...-conversion/p1

We are using our STS ls motor mounts. You can use the Holley Oil Pan #302-1 fits without modifying your cross member. Hooker Cast Iron Headers #8501 HKR will clear the steering shaft, you need to run the TRW cam style steering rack for our mounts.
