  • Check out the SEworld 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

  • i love this build Jared! it's nice to see people building stuff with scrap yard parts, not ordering $3000 titanium stuff! excited to see more of this!

  • Love the channel but you repeat yourself too much, with all respect. Why not fender wall headers?

  • Hmmmm You Should have Gone Big Ole Diesel in that @WrenchEveryDay Much ore fun than a Petrol burning electronic thing Excellent Work Jared Really Enjoying the build

    Jay JohnstonJay Johnston7 månader sedan
  • 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.

  • 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.

    GrimJackienGrimJackien7 månader sedan
  • 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 SEworld 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 SEworldr 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.

    Seth JonesSeth Jones8 månader sedan
  • +1 on I used them as reference for making an ls1 work with everything in my 95 camaro. I was surprised just how many changes I had to make.

  • 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.

    Larry BakerLarry Baker8 månader sedan

    Ethan MurrayEthan Murray8 månader sedan
  • 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.

    Jomarlin MontillaJomarlin Montilla8 månader sedan
  • Man it seem ridiculous the motor sits sooooo far back when there’s so much space in the front

    Chris Brooks-westChris Brooks-west8 månader sedan
  • 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

    Mark RennMark Renn8 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

    Bret LinfordBret Linford8 månader sedan
  • 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 ?

    Ian xydiasIan xydias8 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

  • And what was the reason for the LS being in so far and low? Just can't rember why.

    Charles CarterCharles Carter8 månader sedan
    • sorry, meant subframe not crossmember duh.

      4x4 play4x4 play8 månader sedan
    • 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.

    Paul RobertPaul Robert8 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!

  • 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. 🤣

  • Somehow my corrupt mind saw the classic Rolls and thought about what it would be like with an LS twin turbos swap or a Cummins 1000ft-lb+ Diesel-turbo swap .... I’m to see if you make a fuse box and relay box with electrical schematics for and projects that get sold so any mechanic can easily troubleshoot shoot issues compared to other restomods requiring tons of time going through and tracing back each wire. It would be cool to see some car mods using a $400 rapid prototyper to creat electrical boxes to help locate all fuses and relays if old boxes cannot be modified or used. Thank you for the show and with you well
