That is awesome! Your truck is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I cannot wait to see it unveiled as a finished vehicle! :shake:

Keep up the great work, I'd love to know all the details on swapping an LS1 into a non-ls1 powered vehicle.

nice! hows wiring it up been?
havent started any wiring on the truck yet...im gunna wait and do it all at once. I got a street and performance ls1 wiring harness with the motor so it should go together pretty easily. Right now im trying to figure out how im going to work the electric throttle(fly by wire) into it all.

it cant be out of a 98 camaro cause i know that the 98 fbods had cable driven throttle cause a friend of mine had one now it might be out of a 98 vette explaining the ply by wire which means the engine will make more power stock . sorry to butt in just my observation on what little i know on ls1s. oh and by hte way yur truck is :rocking:

interesting choice on the Throttle by wire, any advantages over the cable?
well i sorta got it for free so i couldnt pass it up. As long as it doesnt cost me a forture to get it intergrated into my wiring harness i should be ok.
Im still learning but i want it mostly because it will elimanate another line coming from my wall to the throttle and also it acts as the cruise control. Im intereted to see how the pedal feels too..should be pretty cool.
