What adapter plates are you using? I'm assuming the clamshells are just stock g body V8 pieces?

Basically the setup I wanna do lol.

What are you doing for headers?

Landon,
Just curious, why you didn't stick with EFI? Just didn't want the hassle?

Very nice, BTW!!

Yah I wanted something simple, car should sound really nasty I'll post a vid up in a few weeks hopefully...Thanks :D

Wanted everyone to know that this oil pan works with no mods, no one knew nowyou know!! You need these plates to make it work though, I had a another syle of plate and it hit the crossmember so use the trans-dapt with this combo....

this is the best swap to make IMO right now......
why dont you let our readers know in a little more detail
whats involved with getting one of this installed and how
you are going to fire it up ?
How does the ignition work with a carb,how do you set the computer
or are you fabbing something totally different

I dig it,these motors can be bought pretty cheap and some are all aluminum which is very apealing

I've listed what motor mounts to use and what pan will work with no modifications...Tci makes a converter now that bolts right up to a 350 turbo transmission, I have one. Its a 36-3800 stahl..If you want to use your existing converter you have laying around you can use spacers and make it work.
That little red box you see in the pics is the brain of the operation, it tells the coil packs when to fire, and also reads the cam, and crank sensors. Timing adjustments, 2-step, rev-limiter are all adjustable thru your laptop with this box. The msd comes with 6 plug in chips with different tunes, or you can make your own timing curve. ls1tech.com is good place to learn about these motors, they are extremly easy to work on....
