    91 S10/LSX 5.3 swap

    I started this project almost three years ago, many distractions later I'm very happy to say I am going to finish it. Being out of work and having plenty of time to work on it it's coming together finally...oh and having a good woman to support me helps!!!!

    I had to relocate the oil pressure sender because the sender required for the Current Performance harness ( 99 full size truck) would not work with the 05 sender threads and no adapter was available so I drilled and tapped the adapter that bolts on to the oil pan just above the oil filter which locates it behind the left header. Being such a tight fit I wrapped it with race car heat wrap..I also wrapped the trans cooler lines on the other side they are like a 1/2" from the header...this stuff works well, we use it on the race car and that thing gets much hotter than this motor ever will

    Re: 91 S10/LSX 5.3 swap

    After looking at just a chassis for two years I now have a cab on it and the interior is going back in. The wiring is just about complete, I am installing a set of mint 92 buckets I got off E-Bay,it had a bench so I made a bracket for the right front seat leg and just bolted through the floor for the right rear. It is getting a tilt column w/cruise I just found at at a salvage yard down the street and an auto shift console from E-Bay.....whoohoo I am psyched it is starting to look like my vision

    Yup the firewall is tight!! and I didn't even need to break out the hammer!! the motor is as forward as it will go before the AC pulley hits the idler arm and I have 1/4" between the right cylinder head and the a/c box, not much room but it fits

    Thanks to my former boss for pissing me off enough to quit, so just as he was kicking me out of his son's race shop I managed to use the lift long enough to get the underside of the cab painted with POR15
