Just as the subject states, looking for someone who has already done it, or info. I have found some stuff, but nothing too specific.
Yes, I found a complete LQ9 (6 liter), & already have a set of new shorty truck headers & cat/y-pipe that I can cut to make into duals. Twisted Evil
I'm trying to do fly-by-wire throttle too. Rolling Eyes

S&P makes a kit to drop it into a b-body. Here's the site. You have to ask for the b-body parts since they haven't updated the site yet.

BRP does too. And they make some cool looking headers.

It will drain you...Money and Time wise.

Mine is back on the back burner and likely will not see the light of day till next year...limited funds and most of all...no time. I'm probably only $1000 away from being done with it, but have not had the time to do what I need and don't see any coming up anytime soon... It does sound cool though!

Jim, come on over and take it apart to see what it needs, if you are intersted. I bought it not running, sitting on a crate. Suspect

Well I got out of work a little late and stopped by on the way home knowing that Al was probably just getting started. Sure enough he was hard at work on a red import wagon.

I think I convinced him it would cost too much to do the swap.

Do you think trading a good running LT1/4L60E for an unknown LQ9 was a good deal? Smile
