Thanks Guy`s

Here are the new ignition cables for the engine

And not that I already knew it doesn't match the headers :banghead:
So rebuild the cables :bow:

Image

Image

Image

The ignition cables look better :lol
And the whole thing also fits with the exhaust manifold :clap:

Image

Image

Image

Now mount the LS 2 ignition coils and we have another part ready :think:

Well... that certainly makes it even more interesting.
I don't remember anyone putting 'coil packs' (?) on the 4.3 here.

Did you already cover your Ignition/Engine Electrics choice(s) ?
MSD?

And will they fit? As I recall most if not all of the ls v8 swaps w/ coil packs needed to be relocated for fitment issues.
