    Thread: LS swaps, post them up!

    1. 09-28-2012 10:31 AM #1
      With all the LS engine talk that seems to pop up. I propose that people post up any unique, crazy, or oddball LS engine swaps or builds they have seen. Now, what you guys got?

      I love LS swaps!

      Once the 2.8 in my crappy S-10 takes a dump I have a 5.3 waiting to go in and i'll post pics here!
      I really wish everyone would update their location in their profile!

      Except both of those are VTEC motors... they could be "LS-VTECs" but I didn't think people did that dumb crap anymore, just buy a complete B18C, they're better.

      I'd love to swap that into an existing factory LSX vehicle and dress it as stock as possible.

      Always wondered what something like this is worth. There's one local to me that's asking 22.5k, which is a bit much I think, even with an LS3.
