    Rearend upgrades in a 6.0L Lowrider Cruiser (Hydraulic Car)

    What’s up fellas? Something a little different here… I’m building an 82 Monte Carlo lowrider that will have a 6.0L LS swap (400-425HP) and hydraulic suspension. This car won’t be used for racing, just cruising and highway driving. It’ll also be on 13” wire wheels and 155/80/R13 tires. The car...

    I've got an '86 Cutlass Supreme with a junkyard 1987 307 (because I threw a rod in the og 307) and this engine isn't far from death. I'm thinking of doing a junkyard Vortec swap to it and I am not very knowledgeable with engine swaps this big. Anybody got any tips? Also, what kind of Vortec...

    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. I’ve asked around and my mechanic friend suggested an Lm7 swap with 4l60e transmission but I see a lot are opting for Ls swap...

    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...
