Oil Pan

Option 1
20142 Moroso 20142 oil pan with built in oil filter.
24050 Moroso oil pickup tube. Stock Oil Pumps or Moroso LS Series High Volume Race Pump No. 22120
22941 Moroso Windage Tray/Crank scraper
 
Similar design to the Moroso 20140 but with a built in oil filter and more oil control in the sump area.
 
Option 2
20140  Moroso oil pan suit remote filter.
24050 Moroso oil pickup tube. Stock Oil Pumps or Moroso LS Series High Volume Race Pump No. 22120
Use Camaro or modified GTO windage tray/Crank Scraper
See this link for remote oil filter parts and pictures of the Moroso 20140.
 
Engine Mounts
Tuff Mounts suit LS1 in HQ-WB, LH-LX, LC-LJ Torana's
 
The CAE engine mounts raise the engine too high.
The CRS engine mounts position the engine well but use a rubber mount that does not have an interlock should the rubber break. For this reason I chose not to use the CRS engine mounts.
 
I made my own engine mounts based on the Tuff Mounts to suit a 308 in a Torana as at the time Tuff Mounts did not make a LS1 mount. I believe that the LS1 Tuff mounts have the same dimensions as my engine mounts.
 
Headers
You should treat the engine mounts, oil pan, starter motor and headers as a matched set. Changing any one of these components could cause the rest not to fit.
 
My headers were custom made by Norm Butler. I am not aware of any off the shelf headers that will work with my setup.
 
The CAE LS1 into Torana headers will only fit if you use CAE engine mounts and CAE starter. In my opinion the CAE engine mounts raise the engine too high which causes transmission tunnel clearance problems and driveline angle problems.
 
I have not tried the CRS LS1 into Torana headers. I believe that the CRS LS1 into Torana mounts have the same dimensions as the Tuff Mounts so they may fit.
 
Starter Motor
I modified a CSR 100U Chev starter motor to fit the LS. This involved removing the alloy mount plate from the front of the CSR 100U starter motor and machining a new alloy plate to suit the LS.
 
MSD 121-5096 is too bulky
Summit SUM-820320 is too bulky
Powermax PWM-9109 is similar to my starter motor.
 
 
Cooling
Thermostat housing Aeroflow AF64-2092s. The factory thermostat housing points at the chassis rail. The Aeroflow housing can be rotated 360.
