Title says it all. 460 HP Gen V Corvette LT1 engine, 8 speed automatic and a 2012 JKU = happy customer. Seriously this will be our first fully networked LT1 Corvette engine using our EZ install process. MoCAN will be used for most bridging functions including AC, CC, Tapshift......

Yes an EZ install kit will be available for the LT1 in a Pentstar JK we're actually finalizing the coding right now.

We even have 17's in the shop that we will be supporting with a kit.

Holy cow Robb, at first glance I saw a white jeep and thought it was mine. Lol. I could only dream of that motor in my ride.

The build is going very smooth, the LT1 fits like a glove. We have also tried several different Gen V accessory drive configurations. The picture of the L86 shows what will have a standard JK alternator and PS pump right where they belong similar to our Gen IV drive. If you look hard you might see this LT1 is using our bolt in EZ engine mounts.

Update

Here's what an LT1 8 speed JK sounds like; first run out of the shop went well. I'll try and get more pictures and specifics up on this build. The LT1 requires a different intake, accessory drive and a few other things vs the Gen V 6.2 SUV engines. We are running our CAN module in this build.
