Today, Jared takes on finalizing the mid-engined junkyard Corvette/LS swap in the International 1010, and unlike what you'd see on a TV show, not everything goes as planned.

Check out the SEpost channel the skid factory. Al makes up exhaust headers. When nothing fits. Worth a look. 👍👌

would love to see a video on how you build the wiring harness for this LS? i think people who are curious about these LS swaps (which i think there is lots of!) would also appreciate that

Hey Jared why not run the manifolds through the wheel wells like have them come sort of straight out then down and out the sides or if you want them to come out the back then you could just run them down the frame rails and that might actually fix your header problem but I do know I'm pretty late on this and you might have figured it out already but thought you might like that idea and could use it but great job man it's looking awesome stay safe man

About QOTD - polish mechanics have better version of it - If you can't make it just throw out your SIM card and move out. Customer will forget after few years.

You could run a high ram intake without even clearancing the hood, let alone putting a hole in it.

Site A needs a fuzzy judgemental supervisor like what site B and C have.
GrimJackien 4 månader sedan
I don't know if this is the worst idea in the world, but as the engine is so low and far back, would you be able to fit a manifold upside down and back to front (i.e. flow going up and towards the front of the truck). I know it would not be a straight pipe but could fill up the engine bay a bit.

Would you not go over the top of the rail and then under the car. Plenty of room

Just for the sake of nit picking, exhaust manifold = O.E.M. exhaust piece that starts bolted to a cylinder head. A Header is an aftermarket product designed to boost efficiency of exhaust gases that leads to potential horsepower & torque gains.....right? Cheers's from East-Van B.C. Canada.

Hey man I'm not the person to go out of my way and type a comment and especially one like this but you are one of the very few people on SEpost that is true to your work and authentic. I really like the fact that you and tavarish work together to. Once again man you're my favorite SEpostr and I would love if you could like this comment

I worked at a Vette shop for a few years in college. And one of the easy upgrades for the cast engines is swapping the ls6 heads on.(243) Definitely worth the time to swap the heads away from the 317 heads.

What no one, except Jared tells you is, theres no such thing as a cheap OR easy LS swap! It still amazes me to this day hearing people spout off this BS that all you need is an afternoon at the junkyard and you're good to go. Great video Jared, fun project, keep these coming man.

Try some finderwell headers. Route them over the frame then back like they are going to side pipes.

Custom headers out of the side? :)

Why not just get custom headers made ??? I don’t get it , you have the tools and if you don’t know how too, I know you know some one who does.

Man it seem ridiculous the motor sits sooooo far back when there’s so much space in the front

Why not flip the headers? Plenty of space above the engine.. and since you are planning to run turbos anyway - I think you can make that work

Why in the heck is there a Yugo sitting there?
James. 5 månader sedan
Can’t help but think the engine is just too low and too far back. Everything would work so much easier if it was just up and forward a bit. And that bay is huge, still plenty of room for spoolies

Here I was hoping you were rebuilding a 396 international motor and needed a stock holley 4 barrel carb for it... just cause I happened to pick one up on the cheap side... never the less... I found this 4 barrel carb unpriced in a flea market, wrapped in bubble wrap, in a box and the owner said he pulled it out of a house he rehabbed. I asked what he wanted for it... he replied "I 'unno... 20 bucks"... I said "Take my money!" and now I have a 4 barrel holley for 20 bucks... turns out it wasn't anything super special but it does happen to be an original part or at least replacement for a 396 international motor from a pickup truck... it only moves 350 to 450 cfm or something like that so I am not going to use it for my camaro that I am building (which currently has an edlebrock on it from a previous owner)... so I am just sitting on it until I find someone that needs it...

Are you going to "notch" the firewall over the other valve cover to allow maintenance access ?
Dan and Yong
Dan and Yong 5 månader sedan
Ok, run custom headers directly over frame rails in front of firewall, and run the exhaust down on the outside of frame rails... appears to have room

it is where the crossmember of the suspension sat as far as low. the setback is so the shifter will be in a normal spot.

I don't know a whole lot about structural rigidity issues, but that frame looks like it has a whole lot of real estate to take from and still retain stiffness. Cut and box the clearance you need for the headers and call it a day.

Shouldn't have skipped the welding of the bolt stuck below the surface. Should have zoomed in.
Wrench Every Day
Wrench Every Day 5 månader sedan
Our editor is still learning what super technical to leave in versus what to cut. This originally was about 45 minutes! When you are trying to weld a stud below the surface you want to carefully start center and just build some length to it before attempting to weld it to the nut. You may need to retap the threads once it is out but it works 85% of the time. And there is more boxing of the frame to come, everything has to come out at least once more so the frame will get painted!
Paul Robert
Paul Robert 5 månader sedan
You should be painting the inside of that frame and engine bay before putting anything in it. Come on you guys have money now.

You know what would fix your exhaust and other problems? An LS swap. You can LS swap it for under $1000 with no issues. 🤣
