    Hey guys.

    Sorry if this is the wrong location for this post. Im picking up a 81 malibu with a 5.3LS swap for 4500. Good deal? Very good shape and runs amazing. Has a turbo 350 hedders intake and exhaust.

    It doesnt have power steering any suggestions for that if needed? Im excited to pick this ride up!! Heard alot of good things about them swaps.

    Use the stock pump from any Chevy truck the 5.3 came from and the stock lines from the car work fine. You may need a smaller pulley depending on the mount location.

    It'll be fun for sure. Is it a carb set up or injected? Either way the price is good! I can't tell you how much I have sitting in mine at this point. 5.3s are in the low 300hp range but you'll like it.

    It should be pretty fun for sure! I have an 02 Vette LS1 in mine and it pulls as long as you push the pedal. Throw a cam and stall converter and it'll be a beast!

    Helluva deal for 4500. It definitely needs a turbo.
