Found this site looking for swap info

I have a on going 4 year project that keeps changing the more I educate myself. I think it would of been done two years ago if it wasn't for gaining knowledge and I also blame Ebay.

I started out with a '88 Mustang GT which was a friends first new car which I bought from him. He had a balljoint snap in his driveway and was going to give it to a salvage yard for $200. I gave him $200 and fixed the balljoint in his driveway and drove it home. Sounds kinda wrong, but he was happy to see it leave. He bought another new mustang.

So it sat at the house not doing much. That paint was bad and I recently saw a Tcoupe in a salvage yard complete. I was originally intending to do a rear disc swap and T5 fivespeed swap that was all.

3 years later and it has a Full maximum motorsport torque arm and phb, Griggs Kmember, 8 point cage, stripped interior except for dash and doors. Removed all ground effects, did 5 lug swap with cobra brakes. I recently pulled the motor only to refresh it.

So I started crunching numbers and power upgrades. So I get a hot rod magazine and they are doing an article on a LS1 with a carb swap. Now my daily driver for 2 years was a '02 SS LS1 camaro and they car was very quick. I loved how that motor would wrap up so quick.

So I started researching and since the LS1 is all alluminum with alluminum heads and for a bonus comes with a 6 speed which would be a very nice set up.

Last year I named the project "Road Rod" for Roadrace Hotrod. The color is Black suede via John Deere flat black and has a flaming skull ala '40s hotrod style. I even had covers made with mexican blankets for the race seats to add to the theme. Plus they add some padding for road trips and warmth since I have no heater.

So I came hear looking for info on LS1/LS6 swaps. I won't be posting much just searching.
