    out of your buddy's 91, you'll need the ecu, the intake manifold, possibly the dizzy, injectors, half shaft, both axles, shift linkages, and the rear mount bracket.

    Bump for 1320^^

    I think you're right about the ecu, dizzy, injectors and maybe alternator

    The LS complete swap is OBD1, right? I believe '92 was first year of OBD1

    I'm not sure but I thought 91 and 92 axles and mounts on a DA were the same? Same body....but I could be wrong.

    Also thought you need aftermarket or shortened shift linkage. And I always heard you need aftermarket mounts too?? But 1320 is an EF man and I'm an EG man so hopefully he can chime in

    i didn't read anywhere in the originator's post that he had any axles or mounts from the 92. his buddy is parting out a 91 DA, so i was just letting him know what to get while he had the chance. anyway...yes on aftermarket mounts. make sure you get a complete three(3) piece set if you opt for Ebay. on the level of obd...he said he had an LS from a 92. that would make it OBD1, yes. that is why he needs an intake manifold, injectors, and dizzy from the 91. as for the shift linkage, what i did was got a B series linkage and cut and welded to shorten it. I'll hafta do some looking on the exact measurement for that. the alternator needs to be OBD0 also, so you are right on that. he does need the alternator from the 91....hey, CAFROG, hit me up with some rep points homie...

    ^^^the brakes and shit would be cool, but not necessary. the stock brakes and spindles will match up with the 91 DA axles just fine. you need to remove the dust seals from the backside of the stock spindles for clearance.

    I rep'd it up 1320....no worries....check your control panel.

    And you're probably right about the axles....i thought it was the whole swap
