    You'll have to swap your Oil pan (cause it comes with a CTSV Pan) accessories and Electronics but it's the best price i've seen yet.

    also the crate engine you buy will still need the pullies from your LS1... so don't trash your old block yet!!!

    Wow!!!
    That's a crazy low price.
    If I blow my LS1 I know now where I'm going.
    Thanks for the tip.
