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.
The 4.0 shroud will work with the GM mech fan. No need to make one. Only to make some brackets for my rad and it will be good to go.

I had my harness guy leave a wire for fan control if I go elec later.

Unfinished up my fuel system last night. I pressure tested it and have. I leaks with good pressure at the rail.

I went with AN from the rail to the frame just over the trans skid to hard lines. Put the new filter, Fram G15 $4.99, and filter mount, conduit holder $2.50, in the stock location. Ran some fuel injected hose on back to the pump.

Over all it was a pain dealing with the hard lines. If I did it over again I would go all AN.







Apparently my sexy man legs got in a few of those pics. They are terrible pics but it was 2am and I was exhausted!

Hey got a question. Why did you go with different exhaust manifolds? Did it have anything to do with performance or was it a fit issue? Curious if my truck manifolds will work. I know they will clear my homemade motor mounts but I am thinking about an aftermarket camshaft. Thanks

The trucks will work. But my understanding is that it requires cutting the body and making a sharp 90 degree turn with the tubing to clear the frame.

The Corvette manifolds hit the Novak motor mounts like Novak said they would.

Honestly I sold my truck manifolds on EBay for what I bought the corvette manifolds for. Then I sold the Corvette manifolds for what I paid for the Camero manifolds.

I got them on Thursday. I left for a vacation as soon as I walked in the door. I was able to hold one up and I think it is going to work out great

I'll put up some pics on Tuesday when I get back.

So after much delay. I have been on vacation, sick and building handicapped ramps and a shower in my buddies garage so he can wash his dirty ***.

So I made a Gin and tonic and got to work tonight.

The 2012 Camero SS manifolds arrived last week. They work much better than the Corvette manifolds. They dump straight down in the back .


They clear the mounts by a mile, clear the fire wall and fit between the rails with Novak mounts.

I went with stock 2001 1500 Silverado HD with a cooler trans cooler lines. I have already posted the part numbers. If not let me know and I will repost them. I had to bend them a tad at the bellhousing to clear the exhaust, but not much. I also wondered down to the machine shop today and made a mount to replace the flimsy stock part. I could have used the stock by part by flipping it backwards but I was bored at work. It just a block of alum that has 2 3/8" holes and a clamp.


Pass side, manifold clearance and trans lines.


GM drawing of trans lines.


They dump out right at the end of the block where I plan to cut them and splice in some trans hose thats connected to my rad trans cooler.


I also installed my harness tonight, just need to make the connections to the Jeep and wire in the fuse block. Wayne's harness is awesomeness. Labeled and ready to go. Not to mention it is about 10 lbs lighter than stock. Took an hour to install on motor. I should be able to mount the ECM in the stock Jeep location.

Do the Camaro manifolds have o2 sensor holes like the corvette ones?

No they do not.

But I was able to find someone else that is also doing a 5.3 swap and used the Camero manifolds. They built the exhaust and then realized that his custom 4 link was not going to work with the Camero manifolds. So bought his exhaust for $150 shipped. SCORE! He has done all the work for me and has welded in the O2 bungs.

Just 1. The part I just bought was the down pipes that connect the 2 manifolds and the go back to the muffler. I had previously bought the tail pipe.
