build is under way ls1 swap

So after the bad news of the transmisson in my 07 jku. it is time to do the swap ive been waiting for. In fact i already have the motor, Ill be using 2002/2003 vette ls1, i had this engine in my 93 rx7 a few years ago. It made a awesome 402 hp a d 475lbft and my rx7 ran 11.02 at 127mph... it is mated to a t56 trans, but i may swap out the trans for an auto since my jeep is automatic. anyway Im starting gather up other parts and will be needing some advice along the way.. But my build should be somewhat basic. I do not want or need a/c or cruise control.

Do i need to upgrade my radiator? also will i need custom driveshafts?

You should talk w/ RPMExtreme or MoTech to get some guidance ...there are build threads searchable on here as well as a dedicated engine swap section ....

So are you just going to do the three wire set up and totally shit can the can bus?. From the two questions you ask this should be fun. Nd BTW I would answer yes to both your questions.

Offroad only? Driven on the street? Needs to pass smog?
