    This is my experience only

    Tuff mount - they were 60mm out and needed to be raise, but for $400 they got me the materials that I cut up and made my own
    Castlemain - anything that I have bought from them doesn't fit but gets you 90% of the way.

    As Marv said his brake conversion was shit, not something that can be modified easily by the home DIY guy, headers on the other hand will get you most of the way and you may only need to chop and change one pipe

      A mutual mate of KE26 Wagon and mine has had zero problems using Pacemaker headers, MAST sump and Tuff Mount mounts on 3 different LS Kingswoods he's done (one of which I helped on).

      It's not cheap stuff but it all bolted together super-easy and was quality gear straight out of the packet

          Bought separate. This was a story I did on one of the 3 LS swaps Scotty has done into HQ-WBs. Might give you some more ideas/help, mate.

                Modify the tank with a VE swirl pot and just run the 1 line to the front. Easiest way IMO.

                    Look forward to watching this. Don't think you'll regret pulling the old chugger out.

                        Depends on the pump you put in it. I put an aeromotive 300lph pump in mine and don't have any FP issues anymore. Engine is nothing crazy, about 500hp so there's plenty left in it.

                          Setting the fuel system & ecu up so it can handle some power down the track, and the diff & gearbox. L77 engine will do to get the car setup properly and enough hopfully to stick into the high 10s aspo.

                            L77? Get rid of the stock lifters & lifter buckets. DOD shit.

                            L98 valley cover & lifter buckets are what you want, with LS7 lifters.

                                Picked the L77 up today !! Only had 35,000 kms on the engine since new, and 500kms ago it had a new 233/233 (.591/.596) lift cam, new ls7 lifters with d.o.d delete kit, 102mm throttle body. Was suppose to have made 430 rwhp but with a manual behind it.
