is anyone local to the Seattle area doing a LSx swap into a 1st generation F-body? if so, are you/they using the hooker swap headers? i'd like to look at a set in person.... if that's possible?
here's why: i think(not sure) they might actually fit my swap into my RX7.... gotta get some measurements, and i need to hang the LS1 in the RX too.

anyone know somebody doing it or that has one done?

I've got a swap in progress on my 1991 Corvette. Some of the things I've seen/used might help but chassis-wise its much different.

cool swap...

i'm doing some internal work before it goes in: ARP rod bolts, ls2 timing chain, mild cam, ls6 oil pump, CC springs, Ti retainers, and hardened pushrods. still have a bunch of parts to order, but that's the plan...

quick question- do i need that alignment tool to get the front cover back on correctly?

Some have swapped it without the tool... but I wouldn't!
