  1. DonH, Thanks for the C7 fan idea, I will look into it. Hoping someone can chime in about headers, my biggest concern is which set, Hawks or CX racing will give me the most ground clearance.
  2. I am finally getting back to working on my LS swap after 10 years of it sitting. I initially installed my LS using John's Car's mounting kit several years ago. I have since put Austin Hoke's mount kit in. My original Sanderson shorty headers would need mods to work and I'm looking at Hawk's and CX racing long tubes. Leaning towards the CX ones as they appear to fit tighter under the car and in the engine compartment. I realize they are smaller primaries, but I'm not worried about finding the last few horsepower. I'm using a C&R 26 x 19 double pass rad with bar and plate oil cooler, does anyone know if I'll be able to route oil cooler lines between the block and headers? This would be very tight with the Sanderson's. I'm pondering the Silvermine electric power steering kit. will it clear either Hawk's or CX? Read in a post that on a 280, the EPS hangs a bit below the dash, this may be an issue for me as I have a prosthetic left leg and with no ankle joint I have to deliberately put my foot higher on the clutch pedal. Also looking for opinions on cooling fans, any idea how many CFM a LS would need? Running A/C, so there will be a condenser out front also. The core is 22 inches wide, and looking at Spal catalogue it looks like I can just squeeze one 10 inch and one 11 inch fan on a custom shroud. Combo would be well sealed to the rad support and ducting between the grill and support will be installed. I'd like to run dual fans, so the trinary switch on the A/C will trigger the second fan. Thanks in advance for any ideas, opinions, and pictures, Martin.
  3. Hi Pete, Received my panels the other day, great job! Let me know if you come up with any door pulls. Anybody sitting on the fence about ordering these, you won't be disappointed. Thanks, Martin
  4. I'm in for a set, if Pete will ship to Canada
  5. Hi Jerry, I'd like to get a set for my '76 280 as well please. Martin
  6. Hi Jerry I have the straps from my 76 280 that could be used as a pattern. Maybe I could hook up with Nigel and he could drop them off to you if he's coming your way. Martin
  7. Hi janaka, Just to let you know, I have the complete wiring harness, (entire car) in excellent shape from my 76 280 if you're interested. Also have the motor ,trans, ecm etc. with 55k original miles. Martin
  8. I believe the GTO is a returnless system. If it's the same as F body, regulator is built in with intank pump assembly. Most people use a Corvette combination filter-regulator for their LS series Z cars.
  9. Hi, I have the complete fuel injection harness from my 76 280 for sale if you're interested.
  10. I have a Painless universal 18 circuit harness brand new in the box that I'll sell for $350 cdn plus shipping if anyone is interested
  11. I'd go for the 2002, it'll have the LS6 intake and possibly LS6 block. Also no EGR on a 2002. Good luck with the swap! Martin
  12. I'd be pretty leery of this swap. These motors are notorious for having the head bolts strip out of the block. My STS is sitting in my shop right now with this problem. It's a nice motor, but wide, parts aren't cheap, not many performance parts, and you can't get undersize bearings for them. I really wish I could forget about fixing mine and just put the time and money into my 280/LS1, but I need my carpool car. Good luck with whatever you choose to do, there's alot of Northstar info at cadillacforums.com
  13. There is a lot of information on LS1tech.com re wiring etc. Check there.
  14. Mine arrived today, looks great! Thanks Roostmonkey
