Thumbs up Post your Lsx engine swap pics!

Hey guys, I just want to see some of your Lsx swaps. Just trying to get some ideas for mine. Some under carrage and interior pics would help too if your have a t56 installed. Thanks!

Re: Post your Lsx engine swap pics!

Mine isn't as impressive as LS2's engine bay (jealous by the way) but its a standard 5.3L in a '93 S-10. Just finishing it up.

Re: Post your Lsx engine swap pics!

Late to the party, as usual....

I'll have to figure out how to post pics on here.... Sadly, not real high on my ToDo list right now. Need to finish building the garage so I can finish the truck. It's not real pretty right now, but it's also got 15k on it since I bolted it together.

Re: Post your Lsx engine swap pics!

Been a few years but here's what it looks like today. I'm redoing the engine bay. I just won't make up my mind on engine mods til I get some long tubes *hint* love seeing the carb lsx.





My simple no ac controls sorry not a fiberglass smooth dash. Switch isn't anything yet, maybe line lock.

Re: Post your Lsx engine swap pics!

Well, it seems to be working ok. With the tranny not there, the engine sags in the back and hits the oilpan to the front diff, but once the tranny is in there, I'm pretty sure it's going to pull that back up.
