engine swap questions
Well its time for the complete swap and I think since my tired ax15 5 speed(270k) is on its way out, I figured what the hell and while I'm in there just do it all. So here's what I want:
5.3 liter out of a chevy silverado, NV4500 out of a dodge 3500, and a dana 300 flipped.
So where to start? Ok, Since the 5.3 is based on an LT1 out of a vette, will it be that hard to find the right motor mounts for it, I'll try novak and advance adapters, should I go with a bolt in kit or weld them in? Also will I need an adapter to mate the Nv4500 up to the chevy engine, and then since that tranny is out of a dodge, will I need an adapter to mate it to the 300? Anybody have any reasonable advice here?
89 YJ upgraded with 95 Chevy LT1 small block, NV4500 5spd, tera low 231 SYE, Custom built crossmembers and skids, 2003 Corvette Electron Blue paint, 3 inch custom spring lift with 2 inch shackles, 2 inch body lift, locked 8.8 with discs, 4:10's and 35's, spray lined tub, and a few other unmentionables
