If so, did you have any issues putting the C5 accessories directly on the LS2?
There is not a lot of changes needed to mount an LS2 into a C5.The deal is, I have just installed a new crate LS2 in my 1985 Corvette. I am trying to weed through all the static about the accessories as the C6 a/c compressor will NOT fit in the C4 frame rail...but the C5 will based on how the ports come out of the unit. The C6 shoots out the side and the C5 out the rear.
So...that leaves me scratching my head. Do I use all LS2 Vette accessories and swap the compressor - or do I just put all C5 accessories on????
I know somebody out there has already run into this with a C5 upgraded to a LS2....Now I just need them to chime in.

Shave off the mounting stud so that you can get the motor mounts on. Use a reluctor wheel from an earlier motor 2005 and prior. Buy the various harness adapters from Katech or a similar supplier and poof your in.
There has been a lot of post over in CF on this subject.
Here you go.Tell me more about shaving the mounting stud. I used a LS1 to mock the install on my 85 vette with C5 mount stands. The LS2 came with new mount stands which visually look the same as the LS1, and I simply reused them.
So I'm confused about that one.
