1961 VW Bug with 99 LS1/T-56. The car had a 95 LT1/T56 in for a year. Wanted to lighten up. The car has a 3.5 inch chop, 3.55 posi, and gets about 60 mile a day put on the odometer. If I knew how to put a picture on this I would.

1971 Dodge Charger. I've got the car and I'm in the planning stages of the swap. It's currently a 400cid big block with a 727 3spd auto. I'm looking to go with an LS1 of some sort. Probably a stroker would be best because the Charger has a lot of steel to get moving. I'm thinking a forced induction setup would be a go because I'll have lots of room under the hood to get creative. I want to back it with a T56 but that might not work well due to the layout of the car. I know Keisler has a T5 kit that works but I really want that double overdrive. *shrug* We'll see. If I can get the T56 to work I'm going to go with a 4.10 rear. If not, 3.9 or so will be a good compromise. I don't have a website up yet for the project because I don't even have any "before" pics yet.

Any more?

LS1Tech will be up and running with a new look very soon and there will be a link section for all of the conversions... We can do a photo gallery too of the engine bays if folks are interested.

99 LS1,T56 stock for now.
Used the Holden front sump oil pan.
The trans tunnel is much larger now.
Plenty of room under the hood after all the turbo support stuff was removed.
The best i can figure is the LS1 is about 70# lighter than the 2.6 turbo 4 banger that was removed.
The T56 weighes about twice the stock five speed.
Should be right at 3000# with the stock leather interior.
Everything is in. All we have left is the exhaust,wiring and plumbing.
The rear end is going changed over the winter.

I am also using:
Howe racing vortec radiator
Dana 44 center section out of a Dodge Viper
97 Vette fuel rail, fuel pump and motor mounts
B&M ripper shifter
Full set of Auto Meter gauges
Lokar throttle cable
Stock wiring Harness
3/4 bore wilwood clutch cylinder

Hope to have pictures posted soon.
Did you ever get any pix of the Quest? I used to have an 89 quest with 20g, home made intake, SDS, torqueflight 904, and other goodies. It went a best of 11.87 @116. Man what a fun car to drive!! I miss it. But I still have the daily beater (88 starion).
Send me some pix if you got em.

Frank

I've got a 1968 Chevy, Shortwide, 2wd pickup with a 98 corvette engine. I haven't fired it yet but will very soon. I just started the conversion 2 weeks ago and should have in running in a week.

I am using a AEM stand alone race computer.
Dual exhaust with 2.5" flowmasters.
I will make a dyno tuned cold air, intake pipe once it's running.
700R4 4 speed automatic.

My goals are eventually 350+ RWHP, 25mpg, and a 12 second 1/4. We'll see what happens......

Enough talk, gotta run, I'm finishing up the fuel system tonight. I'll post some pics soon.
