    Great project. Looks like you are doing a super job. N* sure is big when you get out in the open. I found that out for myself. Good luck on the project.

    Re: Little update on my progress

    I skimmed thru your cardomain site, looks like good quality work, I'm doing a somewhat similar project (rebuilding a northstar to drop in a truck), anyways I'm curious if you are planning on going with an aftermarket ecm or the stock unit with changes to the wiring and/or a custom chip?

    Also, I see that you used the combination of a 3.8 camaro bellhousing and whatever was on the T56 together, out of curiousity:
    1) was the bell on the t56 a small block chev unit?
    2) what did you use for a flywheel/clutch combination?
    3) do you know if the t56 will bolt up to a 60 deg S10/F-body V6 bellhousing (the ones that they put T-5's behind before they started putting NV3500's behind the V6 S10's)

    I'm curious especially about #2 at the cost of a chrfab flywheel thats damn expensive ($420+ shipping).

    Re: Little update on my progress

    thanks guys.. YEAH I CANT WAIT FOR THIS TO BE DONE!!!!

    BOTBOY:
    1. A T56 has its own bolt pattern unique for the LS1.
    2. I'm using a custom made flywheel with a decent pressure plate/clutch setup
    3. Yes its a GM V6 bellhousing pattern and the S-10 bell is one of your options.

    I thought it up and designed it and no fabricating it. Soon (1-3 months) to be starting it

    Are you using the chrfab custom flywheel or ?

    I know the GM 60 deg V6 is an option, I currently have a bell I'm in the process of modifying.

    What are you using for engine management?

    Re: Little update on my progress

    oh yeah sorry.. yeah chrfab is my only option cause I dont know how to maschine the flywheel...so ill let the pro's do it.

    I debated for months about the wiring. It is doable but not to the custom tuning that i wanna do. So i opted for the Commander 950 OnBoard Diagnostics setup by laptop.

    Do you have the engine harness or stock ECM left? If so would you be interested in making a deal? What year N* did they come from if so?
