I have been considering removing the engine/trans for future projects and throwing away the body when I get a new truck.
Thanks for the updates!
Sometimes its hard to cut up a nice vehicle. Great looking hardtop btw

Man,that sure looks like difficult job to tackle,what with the engine buried in there. But where there's a will there's a way. Keep us updated.

It's not as bad as it looks. I just pulled an LY6 and 4l80 out of an express.

Strip the accessories, exhaust manifolds, and remove the intake.

I made a simple lift plate and got a large quick link at Home Depot in place of the hook and chain on the hoist.

We were able to pull the motor and trans out together. No problem.

Good to know, looks like plenty of stuff to pull off the front of that van with air tools

This was the progress yesterday, I didnt have a drain pan for the antifreeze. Today I got the radiator out, intake ready to remove except for the fuel line fitting which I didnt bring the tool with me, and 4 of the 6 bell housing bolts. Should have engine and trans out this weekend. Separating the wiring is not looking like an enjoyable job! The brackets from LSsimple have shown up along with the motor mount adapters. Still plenty to do and parts to order.

Just disconnect harness as needed an lay on the motor. The MAF wire and fuse box wiring just lay on top of motor. Once motor is out and on stand makes it way easier to disconnect.

Engine's out, Trans is out. I just had to sit the supercharger on to see it.

Wiring/pcm & gas pedal is all that's left that I need to pull from donor.

Majority of large parts have been ordered, still need a radiator and gas tank. Leaning towards a Northern radiator which is around $315 on ebay. Gas tank on ebay that would include a 400lph intank pump is roughly $700 also on ebay that includes braided hose with the c5 style filter/regulator. Small stuff is starting to really add up; misc wiring pigtails, gaskets, head studs are stupid expensive. I need to list the parts out of the '57 to recoup some of the expense. LS7 lifters are on backorder, so thats holding me up getting the heads back on.

This is the tank I used:
http://www.tanksinc.com/index.cfm/pa...rod/prd353.htm

I'm using the GPA-6 (500-1000 HP) fuel pump linked on that page.

Good quality stuff. The fit was great. I also got the straps and the 0-30 ohm sending unit. I had to run new fuel lines and copper. I picked up an Aeromotive return regulator that is mounted in the engine compartment. I used 1/2" line because I'm running E85 (which requires a higher volume flow than gasoline for the same power level).

I'm not sure I'd trust a Vette regulator to adequately supply 600+ HP. More bad stuff can happen when a power adder engine goes lean.
