After several starts and stops and numerous bumps in the road my build has finally begun! This is what I started with!

Well a little about what’s going on is good too. Which engine is this? All aluminum says LS1 so something not out of a truck, but which one?

Huh... thought the only aluminum 5.3L engines were the FWD versions... learning new stuff all the time!

now I’m curious to what my engine is... the block is painted black but I remember the galley being silver now that I think about it.

The 241 heads were only on LS1's but the truck waterpump isn't off an LS1?

The L33 is a HO 5.3... it's an LS6 with fewer cubes...they also made an LM4 alum. 5.3 not an HO but a good base for building if you want to cut weight off the front end.

The motor is an LS1 out of an 04 GTO. Because the car and all the engine accessories/brackets were designed by Holden it was easier to replace them with truck parts.
