    Bought some new 1.7 Scorpion roller rockers, we ordered candy apple red and they sent anodized blue WTF? Oh well, they are not visible anyways but still!
    Ralph took a bunch of pieces off to repaint, It was all sprayed with PPG Bulldog adhesion promoter, and then base coat clear coat finish to match the truck.
    Picture of the glass back in the truck, that window tint looks dark for 35% I think. I don't know I think they might have given us 20% by mistake lol, but it looks cool!

    Started marking wires on the C2 connector, I used a large notebook to keep track of what was getting spliced where.
    The collection of AN fittings we used for the 4l60e lines, 20ft. of AN-6 braided line for the transmission cooler. We bought the transmission cooler from JEGS for $99.99, It has a 2200cfm electric fan hooked to it to cool the fluid faster.
    The AN lines are a real PITA to put together, they sell special tools to make this easier but you'll have a couple hundred dollars just in the tools. Using a hose clamp made easy work for cutting the line with a cutoff tool.

    More pics of the transmission cooler mounted, we mounted back under the bed of the truck. We already had too much up front, and didn't want to restrict any more airflow than necessary. Ralph did have a transmission cooler on his truck before, BUT he used rubber lines for the hoses. The line blew while he was at a stop light, and basically purged all the fluid out and the truck had to be towed home. That Is why we did all braided lines this time, didn't want to make the same mistake twice.

    Some test fitting of the newly painted fuse box, this is the brain of the swap.

    Freshly painted battery box, fuse box and other goodies.
    ​Routed the wires down the transmission tunnel, and hooked up the 02 sensors.

    I only have a few videos of the truck, I will load them when I can figure out how to format them correctly. I plan on buying a GoPro Camera to make some good videos.
    The engine has had Mobil 1 synthetic since new, so we kept with that trend.
    Some pics of the engine cover all painted and ready to go, this will be getting airbrushed this summer.
    ​The headers were cut and modified, and then rewelded to fit the drivers side. 2 of the primaries were shortened, and heated up and reformed to clear the steering shaft.

    You can see where we had to dent into the floor pan, and the PNP connector on the side of the transmission.
    Temporary hot wires ran to the fuse box, and temporary wires ran into the cab for the obd2 port, and gauge cluster.
    The wires draped over the front fender are one's that at the time I didn't know what to do with them, I figured them out later on in the swap.
    Had a hell of a time getting the steering column back together, but we got er' done!!

    Ralph fabbed up some brackets to hold the LS1 fans, Ironically they worked perfect with the Colorado radiator and radiator support.
    Ralph's friend welded up the headers, they came out really nice. The only down fall to it, was he had to grind the powdercoating off where he welded, and now they have turned black in those spots. We are going to have them redone, because you can see them through the fenderwells.

    I decided to wrap the headers down under the firewall, because they came very close to the PNP wiring harness.
    When It came to starting the truck, this brought up a new problem. The BCM is the trigger for passlock, and letting the starter engage. After countless hours of researching and reading diagrams, we decided not to mess with the BCM and we bought a push button starter. Very simple to hook up, basically supply a ground, 12v constant, 12v on ignition, and your good to go. It also included a 40 amp relay, we decided to mount it in the traction control mounting plate on the dash. (It has been working flawlessly for over a year now, no problems what so ever.

    To start the truck we just turn the key to "ON", and then hit the starter button and everything functions normally.

    We took the fog lights out from behind the front grille, and relocated them to under the rear bumper as reverse lights. These are 55 watt PIAA extreme white bulbs, they are tapped into the reverse lights with an inline fuse.
    Performance Accessories wanted $187.00 for the fenderwell gaurds, which was ridiculous so we bought a set of guards off of a 97 Silverado for $10 at a swap meet. We trimmed them down to fit, we just used the rear ones.
    The wheels and tires in the pics have been sold, and currently is on jack stands awaiting tax time to buy new rolling stock

    Bought a Spectre intake from Summit Racing for $128.00, It is for an 03-06 Silverado 4.8/5.3/6.0.
    I used an LT1 MAF sensor, as the LS1 and LT1 share the same part # MAF sensor.
    Extended the 02 sensors to reach there new location, always use lead solder on 02 sensor wires.

    No we didn't use a relay for the reverse lights, although they are wired into the factory aux light relay and fuse up front. We haven't had any problems yet, but yes It is good practice to use relays if possible.
    Hooked up the heater hoses, we are eventually going to these in AN lines to make them less of an eye sore.
    Clearance shots of the electric fans, very tight against the air intake.
    We mounted the Ron Francis relays behind the driver side marker light.
