Took the new install for a test drive today. Still have a few things to sort out -- exhaust leak and check engine light, but overall, seems solid.

Not difficult - it is virtually the same just a little longer, especially with the engine out already. When we put the LS in the white truck, we also swapped the trans for a 4HP24 unit. The green...

It would be tight. I wouldn't really see the point considering the M70 is a fairly rare engine that has few advantages to the LS. Same with the 350 small block - they're outdated now.

We are testing this out currently with a 5.3L LM7 and a 1999 Discovery 2 with a ZF 4HP22, but I would think it would be alright as long as its not pushed too hard. I'll keep everyone posted.

It's not too bad. It's just a little bit bigger than the Rover V8. I'm getting pretty good at it now that I have some experience.

Thanks for the shoutout Alex! Let me know when you get a little further along. This is a prime candidate for the standalone Discovery controller I am working on now.

From an "ease of conversion" standpoint, I would definitely add the lift. Otherwise, some slight trimming may be required. Also, if you are using a iron-block LS you will see a little front-end sag...

If you do any form of off-roading, the 2 inch lift will be necessary for articulation. For on-road use, you may be able to get away without the lift. That being said, I would put the 2 inch lift in...

Blue and red (411) is still the easiest way to go. If this works out, with the blue-green, you will still need parts of the pedal assembly, but you will not have to swap out the electronic throttle...

The 4L60e valve body physically conflicts with the LT230. The 4L80e would require a long adapter to fit. You would need weld-in mounts for the 4L80e. I don't think there would be a way to make a...

That would probably be too much for the 4HP24 with the supercharger. A naturally aspirated LS1 would probably be okay. Some of our current beta testers have done full engine rebuilds with cam swaps...
