My name is Matt but everybody calls me Coobie or Coob. Had several hot rods and C10’s throughout the years. I picked up this 1979 shortbed a while back. It was lifted when I got it and sitting on 33” tires...well that look was just not gonna work for me so down down down she went. Fun little truck but needs more power. I was thinking about building a stroker for it but came across a deal on an LS1 complete with decent mileage so I bought it. Just found a 4L80 trans that I will be mounting up to it. Which brings me to the reason I signed up for the forum, I will have questions while doing this swap and what better place to pose those questions than here!
