i was just wondering how hard it would be to put an ls engine into an ef. i figure i could use a mal wood 6 speed kit for the gearbox with an ls bellhousing change the engine mounts and use an after market ecu to control the engine. it seams easy but i`m sure there`s something i`m probably missing any info would be greatly appreciated

Why go to the expense of a Mal Wood 6spd conversion? Just use the LSx T56e
