I dont have any plans for it yet. If I had the money I would do the hd chain and 6 pinion planetary but ill just run it stock for the time being. I dont have a very heavy foot while wheeling

By GM chain you mean one from a 231c? Im not too familiar with how those chains interchange

Yeah they swap over. Its a stronger chain for the just in case moments.

I would like to see this unfold completely.

How much does wyane charge to do wire harness and tune. If your trying to save $$$$. Do the harness yourself its easy to do. Did mine in a couple of nights after work. New wire loom and some electrical tape. All the info you need is right here http://lt1swap.com/index.htm. Check it out.

Here, hold my beer and watch this SxxT

I am looking into the chevy chain though it will have to wait till later im sure. I got the new input shaft installed in the t case. Snap rings are a pain in the *** even with snap ring plyers. I got it all bolted back together and realized I forgot to put the magnet in. didnt get any farther on the adaper but the hardest part is done. Im still hoping to get the drivetrain in by Sunday

I have thought about it but I really hate wiring. In my opinion it is $250 well spent!

Does the 6 pinion planetary come in the 231c? And does that swap over as well? Do I have your sway in YJOTM when im done?

Just don't vote for yourself and you'll be considered.

In TJOTM or YJOTM?

Ill have some more pics up this evening when I get the t case on the tranny. I am heading over to my God Sons birthday party then over to help my mechanic buddy get his 350 out of his blazer so he can put in a 5.7 from a 2000 escalade

I think it only has around 120k and its fuel injected. Feel like making a drive out to CO?

I got the adapter on. Didnt quite get the t case hung from it but its on. There is a seal that Whyj mentioned that the instructions dont. I think it goes in the second piece

Here is the t case all bolted up. I hope I got the seal in the right place but I dont see where else it could go

I think the whole drivetrain will be approximately 1" shorter, from fan to output yoke.

I got 1 motor mount ground off but I didnt get to the other. It was a bit of a pita
