    Ordered oil pan today

    I believe thats just the truck pan which will hang way below the crossmember. Not even an option imho.

    ls1 swap

    I dont think you can go wrong with that intake at all. A little extra torque is never a bad thing! Sounds like she'll run real nice. Let us know how it turns out.

    1979 malibu cheap ls swap possible?

    Yeah, 1600 is a bit high. At least in my area. Wait4me charges $75 to just do the ECM re-program. $360 is if they do a harness for you as well. I have the schematics you'll need to do the harness.

    1979 malibu cheap ls swap possible?

    If you go carb then id say it is not doable for 900$. Isnt the intake and MSD box like $700 or more? If you go FI and can do the harness yourself id say its doable. $1600 is a tad high for the motor possibly. Id just do an LQ4 and save a couple hundred or more honestly.

    Who's running around the street with drag radials?

    Im seriously considering grabbing a set of DR's and just keeping them on the car. Everyone and their brother is making these things now and im really not sure which is the best. Any comments or suggestions? Thanks.

    Who has B-Body spindles & 12" brakes????

    I actually never got around to buying that. The company is as doober posted. Their stuff looks real nice. Part of the reason I never bought it was that I could never get a hold of the guy to get some questions answered! That and I just spent a sh*t ton on the LS7...

    Motor Setback

    1" set back might be pushing it with an A/C box, but you should be ok honestly. You'll need to get a little creative with the coil packs on that side.

    F body pan OR Truck pan?...

    If I had to choose between the two, id go F pan and notch the frame. But, if you are willing to dump the F pan, get the CTS-V pan, its by far the best for our cars.

    Anyone running an L92 witn T56

    I cant comment on the VVT stuff, but the T56 side of it is simple. Any ECM should do. You'll just "turn off" the auto trans stuff. Dont worry about the reverse lockout, just muscle it into reverse, thats what I do. You get used to it quick.

    Fuel Return Line Question

    Im not saying it wont work, but its not something I would do. Id just buy some braided -6 and be done with it. Just my $.02.

    any one use the BBK SSI intake?

    I would never in a million years bolt an aluminum intake to an LSX motor unless its some crazy one-off build or something. Just seems like taking a step backward. I agree with getting an LS1 intake if you are just concerned about looks. Dont expect any more performance out of it over the truck...
