Aces (or anyone),

Do you know where I can find the detailed info on the Spectra GM42AFI Tank and Pump? I went to Rock Auto and found the listing, but I couldn't find any specs, etc. This looks like it makes more sense than going through the hassle of modifying the stock tank and cost of a new pump, etc.

Thanks in advance,

Jim

The LS1 is pretty much a bolt it deal where with the LS motors you have to buy/fab motor mounts. Either way you still have wirring to deal with. Plus the fuel system.

5.3L bored out to LS1 specs ... can you even do that ? holy sh.t did I just read that right ? now the gears are really spinning......

Would this swap (LT1 into '79) be too difficult for someone who has never done a motor swap before? I worked on cars and know my way around cars pretty well. I am pretty confident I could figure out how to do this swap from common sense and reading threads but the wiring and fueling scare me a little.

Thanks that's what I was hoping to hear. Another question; not including the price of the shell and motor/trans/ecu, how much should I budget for parts needed to put the motor in?

If you already have a SBC in your car the cost to put an LT1 in the car is much less than LSx swaps as you can use the same engine mounts, headers, etc. sbca96 is a good guy to ask about those costs and related items

I use the stock LT1 harness. Here is some great info to http://shbox.com/1/schematics_wiring.html

There is different metods to do the fuelsystem. I got a Holley TBI on my -71 and use the stock tank with the gasfumes ventline as a return. It does not work well when the fuel is below half. So the LT1 swap in the -72 got a modifyed tank.

If you have questions, just ask.

How exactly did you modify the fuel tank? Also, what is the purpose of using the Holley TBI as opposed to the stock TB? Sorry for the newbie questions.

I did cut a 6x6" hole and installed a pair of baffles so the fuel wont slosh around so mutch. I made a small bucket for the pump and patched up the tank.

I have not tested it with low fuel level yet but i think it will perform ok.

I can post a few pics of the tank if you like. It is difficult to explain this in a foreign language.

Sorry about the confusion about the throttlebodies. The TBI is on my daily driver Camaro.
