oh ya!! I'm going to pop wheelies.
There is a couple issues I need to work out before I can test fit this bad boy.
I will have to switch to the corvette oil pan, as the gto pan is a front sump.
and probably switch to the corvette front accessories and get the alternator up higher. and bring the accessories in 3/4" more.
test fitted THE BEAST!
in the last pic- you can see how close the steering shaft is to the alternator. that's why I need the F- body accessories and brackets to put the alternator up top.
The front sump pan would work, but I'm going to change it out for something better.
Engine came with the complete wiring harness and drive by wire pedal.
The harness looks like a nightmare to me and I didn't get a ECU with the engine. So I think a custom harness and new re flashed ECM are on the list.
I don't know if I want to keep it drive by wire or go to a cabled ls1 ported throttle body.
How have others mounted their drive by wire pedals????
