Ok guys, for all the info I got from this site it's time to give something back. I documented my entire LS1/T56 install using the JCI kit from start to running. I put it all in a MS word document as I went along. It contains 56 pics of the install and a pretty detailed write up to include the part number of the NAPA serpentine belt, how to overcome the GM T56 clutch connection. But the file is huge. Almost 40MB.

edit - I was e-mailing this file out, however, I found it will be easier if I just put it on a file server. Here is the link http://www.megaupload.com/?d=GEBNOIGW. All you need to do is go to the link. At the top of the page you will need to punch in the 3 letter code displayed (usual anti-hacker thing), wait for the 45 second counter to reach 0 and then click the "free download" button. That will download the file to your computer.

This took a lot of time to write up so I hope somebody uses it.

This write up only covers my experiences installing my LS1/T56 with a fuel cell, stand alone engine harness and no A/C

Thanks,
Scott

Edit: I managed to size down the pics and still keep great quality. The file is now only 3.5 MB. As per the advise of "Bschiltz" in a below post, I am removing my e-mail address. If you want a copy then just send me a PM with your e-mail address.

I'm making this a sticky and maybe it will save-some of the repeat questions being posted on this conversion.

One thing to note, guys. Posting your email address in open forum is a good way to get spam mail. Web crawlers search for any potential email address and try to send spam to it. PM is the way to go.

Ok guys, I got a lot of PMs and e-mails, so I sent the documemtation out in one mass e-mail to several recipeints, I THINK I got it out to everybody.

If you asked for a copy and did not get on, just shoot me a PM and I will get it to you ASAP.

Constructive critiscism and advice is always welcome.

Thanks,
Scott

Thanks for sharing. pm sent

Just a suggestion: Have you thought about uploading to a free file server like megaupload.com? Its a good way to share a single file with lots of people without sending out dozens of emails.
