I pmed dave at team z this morning on yb and he said he just had a customer do this swap using there sbc swap k-member and to use the shortest moroso sbc solid mount and the ls1 adapter plate so that's what I'm planning to use when I do mine.

My LQ4 swapped 93 coupe has a stock K-member with modified 4.6 motor mounts and steel studs welded to the iron block for the rear mounting hole on the 4.6 mounts. I am swapping to an AJE or PA racing K-member in the winter to save weight. You can fit everything with a stock fox k-member, or a stock sn95 k-member, but you may have to trim them up and modify/run a different oil pan to get clearance. Somehow the guy who put together my car got everything to fit...but it works for the time being!

jump on ls1tech.com and search the conversion area. there's a few write ups on how to do it.

Just got my team z tonight and mounted it but i noticed that when input the motor mount on theres a lot of space, do the motor mounts just get bolts and clamp the k member?

same question- looks like you may have to shim it with washers or tighten the hell out of it and actually bend the mount to conform to the K member.


Im also having a tough time with the oil pan hitting the k member on the passenger side. did you gets your to sit in there ok ? if so what oil pan ?


thanks.

Whats wrong with an AJE I got mine used for $250 with the motor mounts and a lsx is a freaking bolt in it takes the same mounts as a sbc or bbc. plus most hedders are made around the AJE k-member. plus i like their modular design, as in they have 1 k-member and a butt load of different mounts for what ever engine you want. so say i wanted to go back with a ford 408W in my car all i would have to do is get the AJE mounts for a 351W and it would bolt in with out changing the k_member and having to re-align my car.

I guess my question is why make it difficult on yourself, when there are parts available where you do not have to modify anything or have to worry about fitment.

I used the Fbody Pan...and did a custom modification...






some options that work without any modification are the Moroso 20141 and the Moroso 21150
as well as the CTS-V pan and one of the Truck Pans

Those Moroso pans are nice but man they are pricey.I may look into the CTS-V pan at some point. Your modified pan looks good but I have zero skills required for that lol.

Any modifications required to the pick up tube when you modified the pan?

No other modification necessary... its why I did it like that.

eventualy I want to buy one of the moroso pans anyways...better baffles, rear pickup... but that is later down the road when the budget permits....I have other fish to fry first.:evil:
