No, most likely we'll just show up as an Instagram story, we're not going for the glory. It will just be nice to go on a road trip and show the car off to friends in LA.

Trans cooler behind the headlight? Yes. Why? Because I can.

I'd be more worried about the axleshafts then the spartan

Same motor/trans was in a different 245 wagon with stock rear end, no problems. IF and WHEN we do pop the rear end an 8.8 is easy enough.

Those mounts must sit the engine up higher than my setup. I've got the same manifolds and steering shaft, and have clearance issues around right turns. It was great for transmission clearance though.

we should be good but we'll see... Undercarrage clearance is perfect at least, nothing hangs below the crossmembers.

drill some holes in the tstat and get a coolant bypass for the heater control valve if you are planning on using it.

i used a gm bypass in mine but these work well too

https://www.lojkits.com/collections/...r-bypass-block

the 240s suck for heat in the engine bay so these two things help the ls engines stay nice and cool, if you use just the stock heater control valve it will block coolant flow and cause cavitation in the pump and it will hover heat.

Interesting, I've seen this come up before but the previous owner of this motor didn't mention this. The 5.3 we have was also in a 245. Waiting on verification and will purchase this if need be. THANK YOU for being helpful, I love this forum for that reason.

The fact that we're using the STOCK shifter really tickles my taint.

Still runs. Finished the wiring harness and ran the new power steering hoses.

Exhaust goes on next week.

Then we take it to a local tuner to dial everything in.

I'm expecting a very modest 330hp

Not bad for a $13,000 build.

Excellent! This being turbobricks I sorta half expected you to loose steam right towards the end of the install and decide to part the entire thing out and sell the shell for scrap.

Glad you keep making steady progress. Need more pictures.

Thanks man. It's basically done at this point. Going to start working on the Mercedes this spring. I'll take more pics and do a final pic dump soon.
