You might need a taller garage door.

If you're keeping a running total on the expense, allow me to give some advice...you better DON'T.

just getting frustrated on the engine search.
i found a LS6 motor and 4l60e tranny and talk to the guy selling it a few times, Then this weekend when I wanted to pull the trigger on it the guy tells me he decided to keep it.
there is a few LT1's around and plenty of 5.3's but I want something more. And the WOW factor!
Does anyone know a line on a pullout LS1, LS2, or ls6? or maybe a built LQ9?

Observations!

1) Your house needs jacks.
2) You need a Waggy front end hanging off your gable end.
3) That thing's gonna need outriggers.
4) Your wife will have to get down on her hands and knees so you will have a step UP.



Beautiful Shaun!

took another measurement just incase some of you wanted to know what SOA & RE 1.5" springs will get you.
And , Yes it does fit in and out of the garage, but the roll bar pad rubs a little

Careful welding your mounts in before you get your motor. You want to mock in the engine with the tranny and t case to make sure everything clears. You will also want to mount your LS as far to the driver side as possible. I got mine over so the alternator clears the steering by about a half inch. On the other side the front drive shaft clears the tranny pan on the 4l60e by about a 1/8" with a 1.25" driveshaft.
