    This book gives considerations for both stock and performance rebuilds. We could have called up a radiator company and had them custom make one specific for this car. As with all Workbench titles, this book details and highlights special components, tools, chemicals, and other accessories needed to get the job done right, the first time. These were wires such as: hot, hot in run, starter signal, tach, etc. These were free, and much smaller than the LS motor mounts that came on the engine. All the steps from finding the right engine to mounting the drivetrain, plumbing fuel systems, wiring electronics and completing cooling systems and exhaust systems is discussed in detail.

    To get around this, just swap the old bellhousing out for the GM bellhousing. Removing it can cause engine damage. You may see some interference with the steering linkage, and the sump will most likely hang below the crossmember. Thermostatic Control All LS engines place the thermostat on the inlet side of the water pump. It left a mark.

    This required us to cut and reweld the factory radiator mounts, but no big deal there. This LS engine was first released in the Corvette, and is still a popular option because of the design which makes it small, durable and light. We offer a variety of fittings to assist in your steam tube routing. Much like a crank trigger, it combined with a sensor tells the ECU what position the crank is in, so it can fire the coils off at the correct time. You can also drill and tap that small outlet on the oil pan for a standard oil pressure gauge or use the Auto Meter metric adapter in place of the stock oil pressure sending unit.

No matter what pan you go with, make sure to match the oil pick-up and dipstick to the pan. Having the engine sit in the correct position will make installing other components like headers or oil pans much easier.
