Nick. You reckon it will be ok to cut off and tap and plug that boss even if it blocks the return feed that goes back along the top of the de-ac lifters? If so that will be the quickest option to get it running as I can do that, refit the standard plate with all the de-ac lifters still in there but just mapped off in the ecu. Them move the oil pressure sensor



Swapping them out along with the cam and so on I am happy to do down the track but would like to get it going first


Let me talk to Turnkey. That's the solution they provide.

Yes, pay attention to the intake port configuration. (Cathedral ports or rectangle ports). 5.3l intake for the cathedral ports, 6.2l intake for rectangular ports.

I'm mounting nicks adapter to the transfer case and I don't have the original bolts. M8 by 30 mm grade 8 (which is what nick includes in the kit to mount adapter to tranny) seem to work on 4 of the 6 needed bolts, but 2 of them go internal in the transfer case and I can't tell if I need something longer. The parts book lists 3-4 different bolts for the mounting and I'm trying to source these locally. Thanks

Just measure what you need. Make sure that the ones that go into the case do not extend past the housing as they will hit the gears, especially the upper one. Use thread sealant. Pretty sure they are all M10, not M8.

Stock bolt sizes are usually in the manual. If not, the size can be decoded from the part number.

Nick, what wiring configuration did you use for the MSD tach module to VDO tach input ?

Use the voltage trigger scheme. White to the ECM, violet to the tach.
Configure the ECM for 15 pulses high, 15 pulses low. Attach a 680 ohm pull-up resistor between white and red.

Is there an official For Sale thread for the LS conversion kit?

I was wondering the same thing. I've had really bad luck with Rover donor engines the last year or so. If this last one turns out to be a dud too. I'm going to scrap Rover engines and start working on a swap like this.

It would be nice to have a summary page that list what is currently available, pricing and what else is needed (other than the engine/trans obviously). I have the attention span of a nat and reading through 1,500 post just won't happen.

Thank you nick for all your help! Finally getting to deliver the truck to its new owner today... Cross your fingers!!! With nicks help we where able to ad paddle shifters and cruise control, the Dakota digital is well worth the $$$, allowing you to view all the major vitals and is super easy to install(if you know what your doing) thanks again the truck came out great.

can you post pictures of the cruise and paddle shifter setup?

I have the Dakota gauges wired with canbus and a momo wheel. 2 questions:

1) how are you wiring the sensors to the dakota? Canbus or direct?
2) how are you wiring the cruise and paddle shifters? The reason I ask is that i tried to connect a PLX devices bluetooth module via a y-adapter so I had 2 OBD connectors going into my ECU. Unfortunately that didn't work. Just wondering if the body control module is a pass through so you can use the can bus input to the dakota?

------ Follow up post added October 30th, 2016 08:18 PM ------

3) what kind of steering wheel and hub are you using?
