Who has done an LS swap here? I have a 74 Chevelle 4 speed Muncie I’ll keep it a manual. Maybe a T56. I would like to go for a 6.0 LS swap in the future with the terminator x. Who has done one how was it? What motor mounts and front accessory drive?

My son is trying to convince me to go this same route rather than the 383 I started. There seems to be so much info out there is it confusing! From what I can tell you need plates that mount to the LS block and then you bolt your regular mounting hardware to the plate using the existing clam shell set up. The big issue seem to be keeping the engine in the stock location (in relation to the transmission) or move it forward.

The other issue I am ironing out is my son has already gotten a line on a 4L80E - was actually one I sold to a guy with a 71 Chevelle that swapped in a 5.3, he is now going with a T56. I am searching on what issues I may have with tunnel, or what I would need to do to not have any issues.

I’m going to start this as a build thread. My buddy has a 6.2 short block that I’m picking up. Gonna do this cheap. Going to the junkyard and grabbing 862 heads to up compression to around 11:1-11.5:1. Going with a truck intake and a summit 226/238 .600/.600 lift cam. Should be a fun motor. Slowing going to put it together and update this thread.
