Looks like a good trade and good for the swap. Keep it going

By the way, did you swap just the engine and accessories, or did you swap the harness, ecu, etc?

New one is same year 01. I definitely traded up! Bought the scap yard guys all pizza for lunch for taking such great care of me. That was money well spent, that will be paid back 10 fold in all the little BS parts I need.

These are drive by cable motors. Wasn't something that I went out looking for specifically. Just worked out that way. My PCM wiring harness guy needs the GM part numbers for the MAP, MAF, O2 and the injectors. Since this is not a changeover motor ( wiring harness cut, some accessories missing and no PCM) I am using the wiring, sensors and PCM from the first motor. Along with a few things this motor doesn't have ( starter, alternator and few small parts). Which also works out in my favor because the first motor had a bent flywheel $225, the new motor flywheel is fine. And I can pick and choose the best parts between these two motors. But honestly there is no comparison. The new motor is better in every respect.

Just for info. You can plug and play any wiring harness with PCM and sensors as a set from one motor Gen III, to the other no matter the year. Just be aware of DBW and DBC, same for same.

Corvette Manifolds and some bolts showed up today, to my work. I was off so I cant anything with them. Still waiting on slow *** Advance Adapters. Shipped my PCM and wiring harness off.

I have however decided against trying a compression check on this motor, at least for right now. Mainly because what I found out about these motors is that a leak down test or a compression check cannot be done reliability until the motor is at operating temperature. In all likely hood my first motor was probably fine. But because I decided to do the compression check cold I got bad numbers.

Look Twins!

My wife was out of town when i picked up the second motor. Some how I forgot to tell her. When she saw the second motor she told me I was insane. Which I agree with.

Got some help today

A new motor head is born!
The shop dog approves of the new motor. Took 15 minutes to get away from the fan. The dead ***.


One of the reasons I gave to justify the new motor was needing more horsepower. Because we had our 3rd kid back in March. So with 6 year old twins, the new baby, it was a weight issue.

Not sure that he agrees.

Anyhow, I ordered Novak motor mounts and their 231 shifter. I also ordered a Lokar 16" midnight shifter.

Today I recieved a punch of GM bolts I needed. Nothing special but f'in expensive. $65 in bolts. That hurts. But I also recieved my Corvette exhaust manifold. You can see from the pics that they dump out right in behind the motor mounts and they gain me 2" between the frame rails on each side. Which will go a long way in running the exhaust. Also unlike the truck manifold they house the up stream O2 sensors which I like.




Corvette block clearance


Truck block clearence


Nothing else really to report. I just transfered a few things from the old motor to the new one. Mainly just some hoses, sensors and old and ends. The big thing was the power steering pump, lines and bracket. The new motor donor was in an accident front driver side and the. rolled. Bet that was fun! Anyhow the powersteering pump got taken out, motor mount was bent and the exhaust manifold bolts were all tweeked. I didnt find any problems with the block so everything else looks good. Thats it for tonight. Im in a holding pattern waiting for parts to show up. I called AA and expressed my disappoitment that my tranny to tcase adapter hasnt shipped yet. I was told this thursday. Which puts us over a week since I placed the order.

Still waiting on parts to show up. Cant tear the Jeep down yet. Wifes van is in the shop so she is driving my DD.

I was able to get the stock Jeep oil pressue sender mounted to the LS motor. Easy really. Drilled and tapped this:

Drilled to 21/64", tapped to 1/8 npt.


Still working on the temp sender, needs to be adapted from 1/8npt to 12m-1.5. Thats really it untill parts start showing up or my wifes van gets out of the shop.

Transmission

I plan on replacing thr filter and installing the transmission this weekend.

I have never messed with an auto before. Is there anything special I should know? It came with a torque converter. Is it ok to use that?

Should I fill it with fluid now or after it is in the jeep?

I love Advance Adapters' parts, I hate having to deal with them. They have no sense of urgency at all, days to get replies via email, good luck getting returned phone calls, incomplete quotes...bah...I'd rather deal with the idiots at O'Reilly's and that's saying something.. Hope you get your parts fast.

I called last Monday, 5 days after it was suppose to ship and I was told it would ship out on Thursday. They were not able to ship because the 27spline input was out of stock. I got a call on Wed evenging they said it was shipping out on Thursday, it shipped Thursday.

I cant complain I guess. I kind of expect that if something is for sale online it should be instock. But thats me.

Their comunication was good. I would buy from them again.

Novak on the other hand shipped the same day I placed the order.

The only thing you need to be aware of is that the stall speed on your converter, might not be desirable for your set up.

No beatings but she is less than pleased that I am "wasting" more money on that stupid Jeep.
