I did some work yesterday after getting back. Got the trans mount from AA installed. It was easy,and looks like it set the trans and tcase at the same height as the ax15/231. So that works out well. This allowed me to get the belly pan in and finalize the trans shifter and to get the trans cooler line run. So over all it was a productive day.

My radiator showed up today, really nice item. And my fuel lines should be here Tuesday. Exhaust manifolds are inbound and should be here by weeks end. So I feel like I am getting close, exhaust is the only thing I haven't nailed down yet but everything else needs to be in so that I can route that.

I don't have any pics right now that I can post up at work. I get that on here shortly.

I an running a GM stock line that I will cut at the end of the block and then run rubber trans cooler lines. The stockers are only $20 a piece.

GM Part #'s
15773661
15809053

I picked these up at my local dealer. Cheaper and cleaner route than running my own lines.

Yea , we were up near Gatlinburg. I only live 45 minutes away from there so we can go when ever we want. Honestly though it has been 10 years since I went up there. All the tourist and traffic drives me insane.

I got a Radiator From Superior Radiator out of Michigan for $300 shipped. Great unit, it is there V8 conversion rad for the LS. I ended up buying it on EBay and it shipped 2 days later. According to Superior I can run stock hoses. It has the trans cooler build in and a port for the steam line running off of the throttle body. Makes my life alot easier.





Also figured out what fuel filter I am running. I needed somthing small that is easly found found at a parts store and has a 3/8 inlet and 3/8 outlet. I found a Fram G15 filter and a mount made from a piece of foam padding and a conduit holder



I just need to flare the hard lines and bolt this bad boy in. My AN stuff showed up today so I will be running that tonight.

That leaves electrical and exhaust and this bad boy will run!

any ideas what your going to do about a fan? im stuck between an electric or using a mechanical fan. im leaning much more towards mechanical as it's so simple...it's there and works. just build a cheap shroud. hmmm... i totally thought that was a sigma...it looks like my range pistol..i carry a smaller keltec pf-9 ... under 13 oz with full mag.... in it's soft case it's like the size of my friends smart phones...but no one knows

i didn't see the steam port on the rad you mentioned... u sure it has one? im going to use an inline upper hose adapter for mine i think..

Mechanical. I have never had trouble with a mechanical fan. KISS.

The 4.0 shroud fits the GM mechanical fan.

Yea it has one if you look at my pics there is a green piece of tape over it.

Man I probably have yours. 3 G22s, 2 G23s and 1 G27

I love them and couldn't ever sell one. In fact I have a strict rule of never selling a gun.

I thought the steam port was supposed to go towards the top of the radiator?

Meh. I don't think it would matter. I have seen guys block it off, tap it into a heater hose, tap it into a radiator hose and even tap it into the water pump. As long as it goes in the system it should be fine. The whole system is pressurized so it should work anywhere.

30 Gen 3

The electric fan is reliable and easier in my opinion. Yes a Mechanical fan can be less headaches to attach and run, but making a decent shroud can be a pain. Plus, if the homemade shroud fails and makes contact with the fan, you can kiss the radiator goodbye and you are dead in the water. I would run the electric, possibly in front of the radiator and then if you really wanted too a mechanical without a shroud as a backup. I learned the hard way about the shroud thing not too long ago.

Just my $.02.
