    I sent you the fuel rail spacers on Friday. You should have them on Monday at the latest. They are 0.400" thick. Summit has the pushrods for about the same price and they always have them in stock. I was just there today picking up some stuff for a gen1 383 stroker I'm working on.

    Re: $hit just got real!

    Pushrods finally came in last night......they look awesome....too bad nobody will ever see them


    So what do I do with the Coolant Crossover tube now? Rebend to fit around the Fast 102 or cap those coolant passages off? Where does the rubber hose connect to if it's reused?



    Since I don't have photoshop at work....here's the part I'm talking about:


    Also, does the hose from the valley cover connect to the port on the side of the Fast Intake?


    Sorry for the dumb questions!

    Re: $hit just got real!

    Anyways....since the UPS man didn't come until about 6pm, I decided to throw the pushrods in right then. Got the Yella Terras in, torqued, turned the motor manually and made sure they didn't hit the valve covers, (I had to freeze the new valve cover gaskets to make them fit) got valve covers on, and threw the water pump on, and connected all the stuff to the intake including fuel rail and injectors. I haven't buttoned down the Fast 102 yet, because I want to make sure everything is hooked up right. Finally getting somewhere............

    No one will ever see the Mantons, but you have. I suspect now you'll not want to use any other kind.

    The Coolant Crossover tube connects to the T-fitting on the small tubing system that is on top of the radiator. The throttlebody is simply by-passed.

    The hose coming from the valley cover goes to the input fitting on the intake manifold, unless you have an Oil Catch Can. An Oil Catch Can would "interrupt" or go between the Valley cover and the intake manifold connection.

    The tube that connects to the passenger side valve cover runs to an input fitting on the intake tube upstream of the throttle body. An LS6 does not have one of these from the factory and you may need to fabricate one.

    So I'll just have to bend the coolant cross over line around the Fast 102 until I make it fit correctly.....right?

    Thank you as always Sir. I did get the Elite Engineering Catch (with the $$ I saved on the lifters) so I'll be adding that to the equation.

    And yes, the Mantons are pure gold.....especially for the price!

    Since I no longer have the stock LS6 plumbing I am relying on recollection. I believe your current set up (stock LS6) has one coolant hose coming from the steam tube to one side of the throttlebody; and another coolant hose coming from the T-fitting on the radiator to the other side of the throttle body. With the new setup, the throttlebody is omitted such that the only coolant tube runs from the steam tube to the T-fitting on the radiator. (If I have misremembered the stock configuration, let me know.)

    Steam tube? Is that the one coming from the valve cover?

    What size coolant bypass coupler (or barbed brass tube) am I going to need?

    Re: $hit just got real!

    The steamtube is that part shown in your picture that runs from between the heads on the front of the engine and has a rubber tube T'd to it.

    The tube that runs from the valley cover to the intake (the new barb) is 11/32 (3/8 will work).

    As usual, yes your memory serves you correctly.

    Lollygagger: Bend that steam crossover line to fit (or you can get fancy and get the -3 AN steam blocks that bolt to the heads and make a braided line to fit) then route the rubber line from the "T" to the nipple on the radiator. From the factory the rubber line from that steam "T" would go to the TB then from the TB to the Radiator.

    Or buy an LS2 crossover pipe?

    Now, I am confused. On mine, the the T-connect on the LS6 Steam Tube lines up nicely with the T-Connect on the rubber/plastic plumbing on top of the radiator. I may have reconfigured (cannot recall) the plumbing on top of the radiator but I did not have to bend or replace the metal Steam Tube.
