Justin ( @Anchor_Mtn ) had a few GM parts kicking around that I snagged this weekend. He had a LS1 intake and a 700R4 transmission, both were a good deal and hard to pass up.

The LS1 intake will get new injectors and a Holley Sniper throttle body, as the cable truck TB I pulled from the wrecking yard won't work on the car intake. The car intake sure looks better that the truck intake! I'll loose some bottom end torque, but should gain high RPM horsepower.

The 700R4 was part of a few pieces he recently acquired with a new project. The transmissions current condition is unknown, but its clean and the trans fluid looks/smells good. I wanted a 4L80E, but this could do and not require an additional trans controller at $600+. I think I'm going to get the LS engine running with the TH350 at first, then decide if I want to gamble and try running the 700R4 as is. At the very least I could use it as a core?

I also got the Gen 4, 4.8 rods and flat top pistons from Dunkin ( @Noahfecks ). The piston skirts have enough wear that I'm not too keen on running them as is. I'll have the machine shop check them out, but I will probably spring for new pistons on these rods just to make sure it's done right. Dunkin had bought them used, online and didn't really get a chance to check them out, not his fault at all.

Run the 700. “Hardest” part is getting the TV cable adjusted. I’m sure there’s a couple YouTube videos out there. Worth taking a chance in my opinion. Overdrive is sweet, low first gear is a bonus as well. Use the T350 as fall back
You think I should toss it in with the LS1, once it's ready? I'd be heartbroken if I get it running and the trans is junk! X-D
