I have a 05 6.0 and its a complete long block with no accessories and from water pump to flexplate to intake with rails to pan. What will be needed to put this in my car.

I have a harness from a ls1 that will work on it correct?

Im swapping out the cam/lifters and springs for turbo setup.

Putting on a ls6 intake/ bigger injectors and using the same rails.

I want to run the alternator only on this engine. Is there anything else I need for the front engine at all? Stock crank pulley and alternator only with belt.
( who makes a badass alternator only kit? ) I need one lol

Im using a th400 so what will be needed for the install with engine/flexplate?

If anyone can lmk of anything else please let me know.

I run an alt only. I used a BMR alt bracket with a really short belt. Works great.

I also run a th400. Get a TCI LS1 flywheel, and a converter with a snout for a ls1 or you can run any turbo converter with a small adapter ring. Some of the bolts on the bell are not used.
Get a shield or some safety device protecting you from the tranny blowing up. I use a CSR one piece shield on mine.
