The LS Install



All that's left to do at this point is to get the exhaust hooked up and get all the accessories wired up. I tried several sets of headers, it is a tight fit on the drivers side and most will not fit. I ended up going with the Hooker LS swap manifolds. I had to cut down the rear facing side of the motor mount to get clearance. The passenger side is an easy fit, the real trick is clocking the starter in close to the block after you get the crank sensor plugged in to get enough clearance for the manifold coupler flange.

For the upper and lower radiator hoses I used Colorado V8 ones. The Colorado's that had V8s installed from the factory had the firewall set back one inch so you basically have to cut back the ends a little and you should get a perfect fit. The steam line from the top of the engine must be routed to the radiator. Here we drilled and tapped a hole in the top of the radiator and ran a line to it.
