Yep, that's the way they are. Must be some reason for it. Odd thing is you can flip them upside down and swap sides drivers side to pass side as well.

Thx for edumacation.

Now this thread has got me thinking. I've been planning pulling the Ford lump out of mine and putting an LS3 in it. And I got to thinking about the torque tube, transaxle, etc.

Volvo 240 wheelbase = 104.3" -- and we all know the rear tire could sit a tiny bit further back in the wheel well
Corvette C5 wheelbase = 104.5"

Hmmm.....

Steering shaft gets real close right here, keep in mind I moved my steering rack from the stock location. They make a stamped steel version of the C5 manifolds that would probably work but I wanted cast ones because I was pondering a remote mount turbo at the time. I have also read that the cast c5 manifolds are the best flowing stock manifold.

good read

Default Manifold - steering clearance

Thanks for the picture. I remember reading that car craft article a while ago and thinking that headers on these engines is a real waste of effort and hassle and they are using manifolds not as good as yours.
Looks like the Hooker manifolds will clear the steering shaft with ease - supposed to flow pretty good as well.





IF these clear the steering shaft and the MAST oil pan fits as well as I have been told the LSx engines can be installed with no mods other than the mounts Of course then the fun starts with wiring, cooling, transmission, clutch linkage, exhaust ...............

Are you running the accessory package that came with the motor? No interference between any of the accessories and a 'hard' spot in the compartment? Also - what about oil filter - remote or the stock location in back by the pan?

I made the accessory brackets and the oil filter is stock. Im pretty sure the stock camaro or truck accessories would work though, just didnt get them with my motor so I improvised.

Very small update. My buddy was sending some stuff out to get clear anodized so he let me throw my injector adapters i made in the batch. Just another step to be able to run e85 and lots of boost!

Overall how much are you into it right now, and how much will it be finished?

I wasn't too crazy about saving all the receipts but i'm in it about 3800. It's by far the best bang for the buck project I have completed. I finally have California plates on it as of yesterday so I will take it to the drag stip as soon as I get some drag radials. I'm pretty sure it will run a 12 as is. Probably not going to sell it for awhile. I really want to make it faster via a turbo or nitrous, which will probably make the car worth less but I can't come this far and not blow it up

I'm looking over your photos and know that school. I think I've been to your house but I'm not sure. Do you live or lived with kurt/kirk? Cant remember his name. Had/has the turbo two tone bug.

Thats a pretty good price range for something like this. I might be thinking of doing something like it to my 244

Yeah he lived with me for awhile but that was probably 6 or 7 years ago. Have you seen his bug lately? We put a turbo k20 in it. Looks ridiculous but it's fast enough to get away with it. Made 480 wheel on a dynojet on the stock longblock, finally broke a rod last season but its almost back together with eagles and JE's.

Ridiculous. So I have met you before. I'm friends with John (blue 244). Last time I saw him was his going away party at your place when he was getting ready to leave for basic training for the national guard. Do you know if his 244 is driving yet? Last I heard he had it tuned but the aw70 was slipping.

You're the one with the corvette wheels/brakes on your bug (if you still have that). I remember seeing it in the garage.
