Came across something a bit unusal to me. I could be wrong, but this looks like a piece of garden hose coming out of the brake reservoir and the hose clamp is not oem. I will replace once I remove, just thought it was a bit strange, since the rest of the car seems to have been untouched and some what well maintained.

That connection is for the blue hose that connects to the clutch master....it is a known failure point.

Shouldn't be a garden hose....

i was tired of cleaning parts, so decided to put the accessory kit on on the LS3 motor, so it will be ready to mock up once I get the parts in from 928 international and Renegade.
Install consisted of power steering pump, alternator, AC, brackets and belts. The kit comes with everything and has easy instructions with all the parts and bolts numbered.

LS3 - Install

Hey Blagave, Great pictures documenting your progress. I've read really good things about the Chevy LS install kit$. Personally, although the complete change over from a Porsche V8 to an LS3/6 speed trans-axle set up would be more trouble than I'd want to deal with, they sure are a pretty impressive combination. Are you going to have the cylinder shut down option available during low load highway cruising ?

Another good side of your drive train swap after the dust settles is that there will be a complete 928 engine, transmission and other assorted parts available to breath life back into someone's high mileage or blown head gasket project.

I love everything about this. It just metal I don't know why anyone even cares about what someone else is doing. I see nothing wrong with adding a motor that makes hp and a tranny that doesn't shift like crap. A little tip for next time. Buy a hot plate or steal one from the kitchen and heat the wheel carrier to a couple hundred degrees. The bearings go in and out way easier.

JK, I agree there is some hours involved in the swap, but really isn't much more than pulling motor and trans for refreshing in an older 928. My guess, is the cost to rebuild a 928 engine and trans, is comparable in price to buying used Z06 rear end and new LS crate engine. I would say that added cost of $10,000 is on the very high side for the conversion kits and misc hardware to marry everything. In the end, you have a drive train that will be bullet proof and very inexpensive to maintain. I also see others reasoning that a well maintained stock 928 will last just as long.

Yes, I will be selling the 928 motor and drive train which was all in good working condition, but have no history on timing belts on other maintenance

Thanks Pete for the bearing tip. I had heard hot plate technique before, but was worried about the bearing seals melting. Sounds like they don't.

Removed tie rods off steering rack, so I could start cleaning and get ready for rebuild. Suggestion would be to break loose while rack is still bolted on car, just easier.

Started removing lines from underside of car and determined I need to drop the tank. I got a little side tracked and removed things out of order and left the pump wiring to last, which should have been first. It all worked out, but would have been easier to drain the last few gallons and disconnect wiring first. There are 4 bolts holding the strap around the tank. Another bolt behind the rubber boot of gas filler. Under the carpet in the rear is a rubber plug, remove that and disconnect wire and vent hose. There is another hose in the passenger rear wheel well and one more on top of the tank which does not have access until you drop the tank. This same hose connect to the back side of the filler neck.

I will be replacing the rubber breather lines and possible the fuel pump and filter with aeromotive

Thanks Mal81.
Taking things apart goes fast, its the cleaning, rebuilding and putting back together that takes the time.

Magic bullet is the eRod engine, its CARB legal with EQ#, that must have cost eRod a pretty penny, as they appear to be the only one to have done it.

Chevy Performance E-ROD LS3 6.2L 430HP Crate Engine | JEGS

$8329 complete with GM warranty.

What should be the "fun" part is getting all the electricals and gauges working happily.

You are correct on the pricing and that does not come with the accessory kit ( AC, alt. Pwr Steering & brackets) the kit is another $795.
I bought a brand new LS3 crate motor that will be getting twin turbos for my sand car and I was going to take the LS1 out of the sand car and put in the 928 and then came across a brand new LS3 E-Rod on Craigslist. The seller was building a bronco for the past year and decided to scrap the project. The motor was used only as a mock up and none of the boxes that came with the package had been opened. I made a low ball offer and he took it, so i hurried over and picked it up.
As far as the electrical gauges working, Renegade Hybrids sells oil temp, water temp sensors that are plug and play with the 928 electrical. The speedo will use a GPS sender that I am getting from 928 Motorsports.
I know there will be some additional electrical items that will need to be addressed and I have a very good friend that is very sharp on electrical and have already spoken to about getting his help when the time comes.

Finished removing all the fuel lines, brake lines and electrical from underside. The brackets that hold the lines on take some time to remove so not to damage. Every time I thought I was done there was something else to remove. All in all everything removed is in good condition. Just need to replace the rubber hoses.
