I had a ACR 4.8 long block ordered for the 95 RRC SWB and decided I would much rather have a LS4. I'll do something else with the 4.8l

Nick can give way more input, but from what I can tell. The older fbody ones would work. The truck ones angle out too much. We are gonna need some that tuck in close and exit downward towards the rear.

No, the LS1 won't fit either. That one fit Clay's setup where the engine was back 2" more.

Sorry folks and nick I did originally kick nick off the ledge into the forum world. When someone comes up with a revolution you want to be part of it even if you are on its coats strings.

For those on Crack book, check out 'Les Richmond Automotive' down under in Aus... His LSx powered RaRo's rolling on 35's are real nice work and safe too as they have to pass stringent engineering & safety trials before being signed off for use on highways. His hybrid 9" / LR rear axle looks interesting but I think for similar or less you could build a full custom 9" setup here.

Looks like his hybrid 9' is from Ashcroft.
