Re: *V8 Swap Pics*

yeah, I am too lol, I have a Mojave heater going in (only cause I need defrost)

I know a lot of the guys can't even keep their V8's cool, even without air conditioning. Plus once you move your radiator forward there isn't much room for a condensor.

Re: *V8 Swap Pics*

It isn't in there in this pic yet, but I managed to get the condensor in front of the radiator and above the intercooler, so the condensor will go if your extra wimpy and absolutely refuse to do away with the A/C. I even had to scrap the factory heat and air in favor of a Vintage Air behind dash unit to clear the turbo. I am also running the EDF and a 19 x 31 dual core radiator, so over heating hasn't been an issue for me, even while towing 12K+ loads in the summer.

Re: *V8 Swap Pics*

Here's my 92 LT1 Vett engine swap. With full accessorys. I plan on dressing it up a little more.
I realy like the look of this engine in here. I will be chaning the wiring so less of it shows. The orgional ECM has been
removed and it now uses a Vett ECM instead.







95 standard cab 4.5/2 drop, all Beltech with UMI Proformance A arms with tall balljoints, Wilwood disk brakes. Energy Suspension polys, heavy duty anti sway bars front and rear, Richmond Gear locker rear with a 3.08 gear, a 300+ hp LT1 Vett and a 4L60E with Vett internals and Vett converter. HID head light upgrade and various LED lighting.

Are you still able to keep the heat if you get rid of the AC?

Re: *V8 Swap Pics*

Yes. We just cut a notch in the heater case just enough so the pasenger side valve cover wont hit.
I have a 2nd gen that I could post a picture of to show you if need be.
With my swap I kept everything, AC, heater, Power Stearing, Antilock breaks etc, hidden rail gun.

95 standard cab 4.5/2 drop, all Beltech with UMI Proformance A arms with tall balljoints, Wilwood disk brakes. Energy Suspension polys, heavy duty anti sway bars front and rear, Richmond Gear locker rear with a 3.08 gear, a 300+ hp LT1 Vett and a 4L60E with Vett internals and Vett converter. HID head light upgrade and various LED lighting.

Your NV3500 is going to pay dearly for that. I would start thinking built t-56.
