Hello everyone! Just joined up on the board (found it through zilvia.net) and though I would post up the project!

Im still waiting on the title crap to get taken care of so I can bring the car home.

I picked up the motor 2 weeks ago:

GenIV LY5 4.8 iron block (with 480 miles on it)
LS2 intake injectors and timing set
224/226 .581cam
243 Casting heads with yellow beehives






Plans are:
Speartech harness
Custom Long tubes, engine mounts/tranny mount
T56 with spec clutch
Possible Tubular engine crossmember
17x9.5F 17x11R Some sorta wheels
and a few more things

One question is has anyone used the H3 oil pan for the swap? The engine still has the rear sump pan on it and I have a GTO pan ready to go but I saw the H3 and it looked like a better option.

I don't think I've ever seen anyone use the H3 pan...

you got any pics of it? some pics next to a GTO pan would probably be best to determine how well it will fit.

You know what, shame on me. I've been under the impression that the H3 was a front sump pan as well as the LH8 pan from BRP. I was wrong they are both rear sump. Sorry bout that Embarassed

Thanks, yeah ive been trying to get the car home so I can start on the mounts and such but the car was sold 2 times without a title transfer so I m having to go back and get ahold of the last buyer and get them to make me a bill of sale so I can bring it home!

lol that sucks.

are you making/modding your own mounts & crossmembers?

are those ls6 springs? what kind of cam is that? I'm still debating whether or not to put a cam in now or wait til later this year, I just don't feel like messing with the timing and all right now. But on the other hand switching out crank pulleys was so much trouble i don't know if i want to go thru it again.

don't even get me started about title issues...

It took me 6 months to iron out the title issues on my S14 from the time of deposit until the day I could bring it home.... NOT FUN times... Sad

yours at least seems straight forward... I had to deal with a shady dealer who sold it to the guy I was buying it from and he had all his paperwork locked up in some investigation into his business Mad

Best of luck...

Yes and yes, the springs are the LS2/LS6 springs. As far as the cam goes all I know is the specs. 224 226 581lift 112lsa

What problems did you have with the crank pulley? I was just about to order one from summit but then again everything acc wise is going to be LS2 cause I dont have any acc as of yet.

Yeah I still have the cash in my hand until everything clears.

Thanks!

the problem is a regular 3 jaw puller won't work, if you're careful you can get it most of the way off with a 3 jaw puller (without breaking it) then tap the pulley with a rubber hammer to get it the rest of the way off.

I broke two brand new pullers i rented from autozone during the process (good thing they have lifetime warranties so no $$ out of my pocket).

I just don't think $150 is worth it for the gm/snap on puller for our motors when you MIGHT use it once or twice...

I got a no name puller and it works fine. One thing i discover is that when you mount the puller, it suppose to be inside the pulley. There are 3 tabs where the puller is suppose to be placed. It is not like pulling a traditionaly pulley where you would pull the OD pulley (lip area, near where the belts run). Not sure if I explained it right, but its a good tip if you never pulled a pulley off before.

another problem is the stock crank bolt isn't long enough to use a puller.
there's a good write up on install university about it tho.

I remember when people use to talk crap about ls1 in a 240sx. I think its so funny. I think they were just big haters! Nice to see another project started. Weird seeing iron blocks. I just not use to it anymore Smile

Only damage on the car....


All in all no rust and just minor things that a few trips to the u pull it yard will take care of!
