Hi Walford, Congratulations on competing your LS install, Would it be possible for you to post up some pictures of your completed install?. I am concidering a rebuild of my SP6 and I am trying to gather as much info as possible on LS installs before I make my decision.

No I won't be doing the conversion myself I do not have the skills to take on such a job, but If I do go down this route I would like to have as much information as possible when I am speaking with potential builders.
I wasn't aware you had posted costs before I will have a look.
My Cerb is a speed six not a V8 so may not be that different from a Tuscan conversion but I will have to do some research on that.
Pictures would have been good just so I can get a feel for how it would look, I have seen some from other installs and it would be good to compare.
I know there are different ways of doing the install so don't want to go over that old ground again, I'm just looking for info at this stage, although to be fair there is a fair bit on this thread already.

George.

Cost wise it depends on the engine you use you could pick up an LS1 for under £3k or pay over £10k for an LS7 and it depends on what else you change/fix along the way, as Walford says tho unless your doing the job youself £8k is prob wishful thinking..... my first call would be to Craig @ DynoTorque

logically a car putting 75% of its power through the front wheels can have the engine mounted well forward


Sorry don't see what 4x4 torsen (torque sensing) cars to do with LS in Tuscan

have you ever driven a Tuscan ???????????????

Logically speaking then, how does a car with it's engine well forward manage a quick turn in under braking?

Is it:

Topcats

Anyone else?

I believe that Craig is a third possibility:

(Never met him and don't work for him etc.)

Didn't Dreadnought in Scotland do a conversion a decade ago? Or was that a Ford V8? (Memory failing.)

Richard at RT dropped a chevvy in a wedge as well, a Tuscan would be child's play in comparison.

If i had wanted to ask them directly i would have

you say you don't own or drive a TVR but you are an auto electrician who works on them

when you were asked on this forum were the oil warning light is switched from on the Tuscan dash you chose not to make the info public, which is your prerogative

i don't understand why you persist in trying to ruin this forum were most TVR owners are happy to
exchange knowledge

WHY DONT YOU POST SOME FACTS ABOUT LS3 FOR TUSCAN YOU SAY YOU,VE WIRED ONE

if you dont wish to share any info, what do you want from this forum

You asked a question I posted how you could find the info out, I'd call that pretty helpful myself.

Unfortunately in this day of blame/claim culture if I'd said to Walford connect 5v to pin X & it was wrong I'd have prob ended up being sued, but again I offered him a wiring diagram that contained the answers to his problems again I'd call that pretty helpful?

This is a forum I'm as entitled to post/view any thread on piston heads just like any other member, I'm sorry my presence here offends you so much if I have breached the rules of the site then report me to a moderator.

P.S. Have a nice day biggrin

So your a TVR electrician who cant give any advice on how these cars were wired for legal reasons,

but you can advice on chassis dynamics, engine install heights C of G, roll, pitch, ect

for most people these forums are about sharing info

I'm not a TVR electrician that's something you have invented in your own little mind.

I don't recall telling anyone about chassis dynamics etc apart from pointing out Audi's seem to handle ok with their engine further forward than some other cars....

I've checked the PH rules & it doesn't seem to be a pre requisite that you have to be helpful to post on PistonHeads.... So post what I wish when & where I wish I will.....
