    So I have an 87 El Camino that I put a brand new sbc 350 in it with a 2.73 open diff and a th350 to build a daily driver. it has been great but I am quickly realizing the limitations to what I thought would be a good daily driver. I do have access to another car while this swap happens but I...

    amateur mechanic - 1984 base MC gets 5.3L/4L60e

    I've been asking a lot of questions on this site and lurking for a year. I was too lazy to work hard to save money to do this in high school like my friends did. It's a good thing I waited because the technology got a lot better over the last 30 years. I got $10,000 worth of parts going into...

    Lm vs Ls swaps

    I’ve recently acquired a 82 cutlass 4 door with no engine no transmission. Used to have a V6 I believe. It was parked for 20+ years so body and interior is in awesome condition.

    Ls2 78 Malibu build

    Just wanted to thank everyone for all their information, what works, and what doesn’t on my year long build. I was able to swap an 06 gto motor and trans into my 78 Malibu. Right now it has a stock ls2 with the 4l65e, moser 9” spool w/3.55, custom aluminum drive shaft, and qa1 shocks.

    CARB-legal LS Swap - It can be done!

    Video quality not great, but found this video on YouTube of a Monte Carlo SS with a fully C.A.R.B.-legal LS1 swap. For all you doubters out there, it can be done!

    What motor should I go with?

    So I am still searching for a G body SS Monte Carlo but I am having trouble trying to decide what motor should I go about putting in it as well as trans. My original idea was to just get a 350 and swap the heads and can so I can still have a decent amount of power, because I highly doubt that...

    Corvette "batwing" oil pan for LS swap?

    Planning an LM4 swap into an 87 Regal. I have access to a batwing oil pan and was wondering if it would work in the G-Body. I plan to use adjustable mounts from Dirty Dingo and will mount to a 4L60e. I'll use F-Body exhaust manifolds from an LS3. Thanks

    So plans change a bunch. I originally bought this car for a hundred bucks and immediately built it for the drag strip. Que the Mullets. Ran a best of 13.90 a couple years ago and decided to hang it up. You really gotta pay to play when I comes to performance, and drag racing a turd is boring. (A...
