Not sure if you are going to wire up the fuel level sensor from the GM or not, but I was just reading on mud that it helps control the GM evap system. I never wired it up and my truck does OK, but I do get some pressure variations in the tank sometimes. Maybe this would help. You may want to do some research..

Seems like you've got it all covered so maybe this is old news.

I am planning to pull a signal for the fuel level input right from the wire that sends voltage to the fuel level gauge. I may have to have the programming tweaked a little to work with the range the toyota sensor puts out.

I also plan on doing the fuel tank pressure as well. I am going to put the sensor in the evap line going between the tank and the canister. I bought all of the parts that would be needed for a 2005 silverado to match the donor engine.


I had a buddy come over today and help me set the hood back in place. I was right on with the positioning of the motor and with the hood closed, the insulation barely touches the highest point on the motor which is the evap purge valve on the intake. I need to rearrange the PS return line a little so that I can schooch the motor over towards the driver's side a bit to get it parallel to the frame rails.

Got the motor mounted and everything welded in. What a pain that was...













As you can see, the front drive shaft is hitting the trans pan, and this is just sitting static. I don't have the winch bumper mounted up so it's only going to get worse. Primary solution is to clearance the pan.

My pretty LS3 exhaust manifolds are not going to work. They are too wide for the frame. I will get a set of center dump block huggers instead because they are known to work.

All in all, I am glad it's in place. Now I can move on to the bolt on stuff.

been a while since an update - progress is slow but I am getting close..

shifter is done. notice it now shows for gear positions instead of 3:





Pedal is mounted - this was a pain due to it's odd size.



Fuel plumbed and new pump mounted in tank. test showed no leaks.





DC Control fan controller is mounted and wired - also tested with boiling water and yes it works..



Cooling system is done.





and now I am doing the exhaust.



What remains to do is the wiring and then add fluids.

It's a runner!

Finished up the exhaust, added fluids, did a temporary wire up to get power to the PCM and vroom! It fired up on the first try.

I let it run for about an hour while topping off the trans, radiator, and power steering. Got it up to temp and the DC controller spun the fans up just like it's supposed to.

Getting close! Now I have to tackle the wiring.

thanks! now it's a matter of making the wiring interface permanent and find a place to mount the PCM and fuse panel, and also find a place to mount the washer bottle. But it runs!
