    Did you come across a good deal on the ls6 or did you decide to buy a crate engine?

    I remember when I did that swap to my 2001 SS Camaro. Bought my LS6 crate engine from crateenginedepot back when they used to sell them for only $2999.00.
    Then I dropped a cam in it with the supporting hardware, and then added headers, cold air, etc...
    That was alot of fun..but if I remember correctly, it is NOT a direct swap, there is a little work to be done including the windage tray.

    really that is WAY TOO MUCH. 3400 will get you an ls1 long block outta jegs. if i were gonna blow 6 grand i would buy a stroker short block and outfit it with a head/cam package OR just buy a long block for way less than 6 grand like others suggested. brand new.

    stroker all the way for the money and it is direct plug and play. will fit fine. you will only have to tap one hole in the block for the alternator i think. but that is it. and an easy 400+ to the ground. as opposed to the old z06 motor which was rated at 400 i think.

    You can buy it pre-blended. Just run the vehicle with the radiator cap off and that should work all the air bubbles out. Just keep filling right at the radiator.

    You can buy pre mixed 50/50 blends. Just remember to run Dexcool!

    I didnt know they made premix....so dexcool, thats the red stuff right?...I got red stuff in it now, it came in the car when I got it....but if it comes premixed isnt it still just a gallon?...I need to know how many gallons I need of water and how many of coolant...the old hotrods ive had I would just put a gallon of coolant and then fill it rest of the way while engine running with water, but Im clueless about LS1's.....
