Exclamation LT1 ENGINE SWAP IN AN 86 C10

This is my first attempt at an lt1 engine swap. I have an 96 impala ss engine with all the wiring and components.(ecm, map sensor, etc..) I'm about to put it in a 86 chevy pick up. I would like any input on different kits available (if there is any!! I've looked) any advice on what to do about the pass key system. I've read you can disable this function when you reprogram the ecm. Also heard you could buy an eliminator kit for it. Also read about redoing my wiring harness so any schematic would be great! I'm trying to keep the a/c so i could use info on hooking that a/c compressor to the stock truck system. I know I have to relocate the a/c compressor up high due to clearance issues. I've read that I'll have to relocate the fuel lines also due to the year. (my lines come out on the passenger side) Any ideas on fuel pump and line setups! Read you can use a fuel pump from late 80's model early 90's throttle body setups. Also info for speed sensor.(Using the original tranny that came with the truck. Its been completely overhauled.) Ideas for the cooling fan setup and radiator. I know I'm asking alot but, I do appreciate all the advice I can get. Thanks again

just buy a "standalone" harness.. Then its just plug and play.. You can use the stock motor mounts, and use long tubes for that model truck.. Then buy a walbro pump, and adapt it into your fuel tank, and run your fuel line accordinlly

I like the idea i want to do it to a 68-71 c10 they are my favorite trucks,It shouldn't be difficult, wiring the most complicated
