ok, so im considering swapping the lt1 for an ls motor...... would 5k be too much to ask for...

-94 lt1, heads rebuilt and mild ported
-crane cams roller rockers, lunati cam, and crane cams lifters
-melling oil pump
-misc msd parts, bbk throttle body, underdrive pulleys, etc etc

94 t56 trans with 40k
-new clutch kit
-2.8 mounts, w/ jtr brackets
-current perf. harness w/ lt1 pcm
custom hydraulic line to work with stock t56 slave cyl.
-short shifter
-complete true dual exhaust with magnaflow cats and dynomax mufflers
-modified trans crossmember for t56
-rad. support w/ vette rad. and taurus fan
-autoloc tach calibrator
basically everything to get the engine and trans in a second gen EVERYTHING!

motor and trans work excellent, many extras... blah blah blah

is that worth it, cuz i dont think id do it for any less???????????????

seems a bit high to me, but then again, i'm some what in the dark on what the newer built LT & LS motors bring nowadays. I know you can get Stockers for dirt cheap though.

i know it sounds steep, but all that stuff adds up to twice that much money.... i paid 800 for the motor (stock) 1750 for the trans, 450 for the clutch, and 1100 for the harness and comp. tune
thats 4000 bucks right there.... and there is considerable work done to everything

yeah, that's true i understand. I guess if you find the right buyer they would be willing to purchase it. The nice part about your's is the fact that it's already been tuned and ready to go, maybe even try on some F-body forums to see if anyones interested ya know? best of luck to ya anyhow!

it would be nice to sell to a 2nd gen s10 owner, cuz they could just put it in, plug it in and be done with it

that is steap dude but i get where you comin from it is worth that much. just tell them you get what you pay for and thats alot. at worst you may have to part it or just get another truck if it can be an option

that harness has to be for the same type truck you have with the same or damn near the same options for it to work,might be better off the try and sell the whole truck and start over...

selling the truck can and will not happen..... by any means..... this isnt a truck with a v8..... ive got way too much in it to sell...... i doubt that the truck has that much to do with it..... if i can find someone with a 2nd gen, 4cyl, 5spd, with a tach they should be fine

Well, the harnesses are built for "your" truck.So he builds them to what truck you have.Meaning, the harness wil not work on a 4.3 5 speed truck.Thats all I was saying.
