air filter and intake pipes(stainless)
Radiator pipes (stainless)
Radiator and thermos
computer and harness which has been base mafless tuned and has been made plug and play for conversion (between 250 and 300KW ATW)
engine and box (LS1 T56 6 speed done 100 000kms came from VX clubby)
cross members engine and gearbox which sits engine as far back and low as possible and does not require tunnel mods. will bolt straight up to standard body and has had control arm mount holes moved up for better control arm angles and better handling, this is something the engineer who signed off on wanted an made me have a bump steer examination to prove it all safe and got it passed.
full exhaust, custom extractors into twin 2.5 with cross over pipe
tailshaft to suit the 240z and R200 long nose.
Brand new clutch master cylinder, and plate adaptor to use standard 240z clutch pedal and hole in fire wall and use ls1 master
if buyers want the fuel system it might be available depending how much they want to pay, and if you want injected or carby, its a 1200hp turbosmart pressure reg, fed by bosch 044, all fitted up using speedflow fittings and hose through a surge tank. cost shite loads just in fuel system.
There is more i'm sure but there is a good list, ill have more recent pics tomorrow. all the fabrication of cross members, exhausts and intake stuff cost over 5k. motor and box cost 5k and havnt even started on wiring and tuning and thermos.
At this stage he is looking to see what offers he gets and may even be heading down to Brissy soon so he could arrange delivery down there.

Happy to go through the process necessary with an engineer (already found the right guy in melbourne for this sort of thing), but wondering "how hard" it's going to be to get this LS1 through?
Engineer mentioned there were some limitations. I thought 5L was the max. also.

It is also critical that the powertrain in correctly aligned... it's not a matter of simply plopping an engine in the bay.

That is not an LS1.
there is a guy in adelaide who has an ls1 engineered and registered...

i did see the car in person and got few pics of it. fits nicely very nice neat job..... credit to the owner.
now for those that like chevy in their z this looks like a very easy way out. pending price i guess. think of it as 1 weekends work instant power increase.
good luck with the sale.
