Now that i have someone interested in my '96 S10 LS1 project im going to be left with my motor since they have there own ARE stroker. The turd 305 is about to crap out in the K5 after 180K miles of service, and i've started toying with the idea of putting it in there since it already has the proper accessories and oil pan. The only thing that bothers me is the peak torque of the LS1 being so friggin high in the rpm range and the weight of my truck, im afraid its going to be a dog towing on hills. Granted it can't be any worse than the now carbed TPI 305 camaro engine thats in there now, i just don't know if it will merit up to the trouble of swapping out the tank sending unit, buying a fuel pump, getting a flywheel adapter and new converter for the 700R4 and fabbing some mounts. I've already got everything else i need since the S10 was almost completed. '98 ECU for a M6, engine management harness, 1 3/4" weld up header kit, LS6 intake and all the proper corvette accessories. I can get about 3500 out of the engine since it only has 14K miles on it and about 500 for the harness. You guys think i should do this or just sell the beauty and put a '97 up Vortec 5.7 in there? It would help big time if they actually made torque (RV) cams for the Gen III motors, but all of them are geared toward top end hp and leave peak torque in the mid 4K's. I tow light loads with my truck every now and then, and im wheelin 33's on the stock 3.73 gears. I was thinking about maybe using a converter with about a 2k-2200 stall speed made for towing...like a truck thruster to help out some. Fuel is the only thing i'll need to address that i don't already have to work on this truck. I think Peterson's is the only one i've seen or heard of swapping a Gen III motor over into a K5. I know it looks like it would be a walk in the park compared to the space i had to work with on the S10.
