3rd Gen Camaro LSx Swap build thread
So over the past 2 years that I have been stationed in Japan, I have been gathering info and ordering parts to do an LS1 Swap into my 89' IROCZ. I want the car to be seriously streetable, completely reliable, fairly quick, and something out of the ordinary. Yes F-body's are everywhere but I have yet to see an LS1 swapped 3rd Gen in NM. So I am about to PCS outta Japan and move to San Diego. I will arrive in ABQ on March 16th and I have 30 days to do this swap before I gotta high tail it outta here and drive to CA. The T56 that was in the car before was an LT1 style and wouldn't work with and LS1 so it has been sold and an LS1 style T56 has been acquired. Anyways here is a list of parts that I have already purchased, and a list of what I still need. I will be updating this thread once I start working on the car and will most likely have questions for the LS guys.
