Anybody with a build thread with a GM LS swap

I have started to gather parts for a engine swap this fall and was wondering if anybody here had a build thread I could read. I have been reading a lot over on Pirate but nobody really has much for a CJ. Mostly Wranglers over there.

This is the only one I can think of but I'm not sure if it will do you much good. Hopefully... http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/vo...ts-way-954786/

Thanks Swatson that's a nice jeep but not really a lot of tech in it though.

Now off to search tankkiller

BBC's "Project Envy"

Grewe02's "Project CJ Vette"

SleeperCJ's "LS1 in CJ7"

These are some of the best ones I followed when I did mine (Thanks guys!). All of them have helped me at one point or another with information or pictures if I needed them. I haven't put together a build thread yet but you are more than welcome to ask me any questions as you go. Also, check out Advance Adapters and Novak Adapt. If you go with the electronic throttle then make sure you get the blasted TAC module with you motor otherwise it'll cost another $350-$500...

Good luck!

Thanks for the links I will check them out.

I've been all over Novak anf Advanced Adapters sights. They are a wealth of info.
I'm to the point of information overload. Lol!!!

Waiting on the local salvage yard to pull me a engine. It was supposed to be fone this week. But looking like maybe next week. It is a 2002 5.3l DBC. I ordered a set of LS3 exhaust manifold's off of ebay last night. Also picking up a Ford contour duel fan from salvage when I get the motor.

I figured when I get the engine home I would start a thread from scratch.

Sounds like a good plan. It will be information overload, but building what you want with all that information is something to be proud of. You are on a good track to an awesome LS budget build which is what many people are after.

Good idea on the exhaust manifolds. I ordered some stainless no-name headers from ebay that were supposed to be for the LS1, but with the stipulation of "You may need to run a header plug on a few of them". This gave me a world of headache and wish I had not thrown out my stock manifolds.
