It really depends.  LS engines come in different sizes from 5.7 to 6.2, NA or supercharged etc. Everyone does the LS engines so I chose this engine and transmission to be different. I'm sure my life would have been a lot easier if Id gone that route as so much off the shelf stuff available. .  

Exactly. Still not as popular here. Thinking of going LS2 for my Monza

I was making really good progress until a serious back injury laid me up for a month. Now that is getting better I can get back on it.

I got all of the components for my front brakes and set them up only to realize that the caliper fouled the wheel :(

So $400 and a lot of measuring later I ordered a set of Wilwood hats and rotors and now it all fits like a glove.  Looks way better too :)




I just need to order a 1/4" spacer for the caliper bracket and I can consider these done.

Then its back onto the transmission tunnel.  Need to finish up the shifter and handbrake mounts and that can then be welded in.
