Fan shroud is different, motor mounts attached to frame need to be moved back to the back holes, tranny can stay but dont expect it to last very long without tranny cooler, make sure u get the right accesory brackets, I know of 5 different bracket setups for this type of swap, and last but not least that I can think of is make sure the exhaust manifolds you get will work with your setup, lotsa clearance issues on the center dump ones.

I have 2006 hyundai elantra with a bad camshaft sensor. I have part on hand. Anything special I need to do besides swap out the part? Cam Shaft Location?

I assume you determined the diagnostic trouble code for the sensor was TRUE/VALIDATED?
If so, then there is NO reason to do anything else but 'swap out the part.' Your second question is somewhat puzzling... the cam shaft is on TOP of the engine - the sensor's location (standing on the passenger side of the vehicle with the hood open, is on the left side of the engine at approximately the 10 o'clock position of the cam.... the connector to it is at the 9 o'clock position.

I would like to get books on engine removal,and if any 350 chevy motor will go back in,or does it have to be an LT1

Most GM dealers carry manuals on engine swaps and performance modifications. If they don't have what you are looking for then go to and put your car in. They will list a number of books which should be able to provide what you need. Hope this helps.

Trying to wire a 1994 lt1 into 1996 chevy s-10

It should be a plug and play if your using the ECM for the 1994 engine. The ECM on the 1996 S10 will no work on the LT1 engine, for one thing the S10 ECM will only command for 6 fuel injectors and will have different injection pulse and so on. The program of the S10 ECM is made for the Vortec as to the LT1 will have different parameter **** as engine running temperature, vacuum readings, and timing.
The most obvious would be the 1994 LT1 runs on a OBDI system and the 1996 is running on a OBDII system. You can still run the 1994 LT1 from a 1994 with a OBDii system ecm, but some of the sensors will need to be upgraded to accommodate for the proper readings the OBDII system will need to have the engine to run right.
If you don't have the right ECM for the LT1, go to the wrecker's and locate one, Caprice, Camero, Firebird ECT.....
Thank you for using fixya and good luck on your project.

V-8 Swap

The transmission and transfer-case will work with the 5.7 liter engine. Your going to have to replace the engine mounts and the exhaust manifold. You can get the parts needed at JEGs and you can use the exhaust manifold from a LT1 since they are contoured closer to the engine. The radiator will work fine, but your going to have to use a electric fan. With the V8 engine, make sure that it comes with the ECM. Easier if your going to use a 1994 engine like the LT1 from a Camaro, since it too used the 4L60E transmission like the one in your Bravada. Here is a link for you to get more information and parts you'll need and buy.

I have a 1996 pontiac trans am with a ls-1 and im

In 1996 the Trans Am came with an LT1 unless an LS1 was swapped in. Timing is not adjustable in either engine though. Why do you feel you need to adjust the timing?
