Re: V6 Swap What Lightning Con. won\'t tell you.
Not quite Capn. I've asked several Zuk vendors for help when needed, and they were always willing to help, even if it meant I was going to buy a local part, and not theirs. You know what it boils down to: service!!! I bought my wiring harness from Painless and even before I did, their customer service line answered ALL my questions/e-mails even when I asked about competitors harnesses. The same was true for FI Specialties. Great guys (ask for Vince). He sold me a high pressure fuel pump and helped with TONS of questions.
When you ask for info on their custom driveshafts, and then find out they're just shortened stockers, why would I buy them from them when I can get my own cut?! Would you? I don't think so.
And the business about a different waterpump? Nice try, it's just the short shaft version of the SBC.
Custom rad? Save your coin and look into the Griffin Scirrocco race rad. It's only 13 inches tall and 20 (?) inches wide. Basically it will fit and is about $200+. Awesome for an aluminum rad. Use an electric fan and Water Wetter and your cooling problems are solved.
Headers? Make your own OR search the yards for a set that fit. Also, Sanderson makes some that will fit. They're about $250 so they're not too expensive.
As soon as I get the pics going, I'll post them for whoever wants them along with any info. I'll also have dimensions/measurements on the mounts and such.
Good luck everyone,
