    Hey. I am currently undertaking my first LS swap for my 74 nova sedan. I have a l96 and 6l90 from a Chevy Express. I am trying to figure out what needs to be done to get the trans to fit. I am pretty sure I need to cut the tunnel, but what do I do with the big gaping hole? Do I weld new metal...

    Hello, I am looking for an L33 to put in my 1978 Nova. Is there any hope of that tall alternator mount fitting under the hood of my car? It would make my shopping for an engine easier if I give up the idea of striving to get one with the accessories still attached. But I know how the little...

It started with a 383 stroker, stick shift, best 1/4 mile time was a 12.01. blew up that motor last year during the second...

    As I keep moving forward my hotrod mentor is trying to convince me I will be much happier if I put a 5 speed in instead of a muncie. It has already been difficult amassing most of the parts to this point but he thinks its worth the extra trouble. I definately plan on keeping the bench seat but...

    Here are some shots of my '67 Nova SS. It's currently getting a new powerplant (LS3 Stroker). I recently installed the TCI pro-touring front clip as well. I can't wait to get her back on the road. I run a page on Instagram called ModernDayHotRods, so don't mind the watermarks. More info on my...

    Is anyone running the Holley Hi Ram on their LS swap? I have a 2" cowl hood and ordered the TCI Pro-Touring front end. I've google searched and searched on here to see if I could find anything, but came up empty handed. I'm wanting to know if it will clear before I order an LS crate engine with...

    I have a 67 ss orig 4spd car (11837), non numbers matching. I'm getting ready to tear down for body and paint (by no means a pile, just want it to be nice and clean), but have been seriously considering doing a T-56 magnum and ls build, is it sacrilege to cut it up? My head says no, but my...

    So recently i started throwing around the idea of building an LS motor for my '66. So i did some research and it seems that the more budget friendly way to go for a N/A motor was to find a LQ9. What are some things i should be looking for when i go to a junkyard and try and pick one out? I...

    Just curious what hp and torque numbers would be possible out of a 5.3 cam and intake. Also if I could do the whole swap if I get the 5.3 for around $350 and use my current 700r4 how cheap could I do the swap? I'm in high school and don't have a huge budget to spend. Also how quick could someone...

    Hey guys, I am starting to plan my build for my 67. I could us some help on the choice for my front sub frame. I am planing on putting in an LSx 454 with the dry sump from the corvette.
