    I have a 92 Sonoma GT that I want to put a v8 in. At my local junkyard there is a 4.6l northstar v8 out of a 2006 cadillac srx. Ive done a little research and from what I've been able to tell there are no manual options for this engine setup? The engine itself would be $450 to pull from the...

    Hi, I swapped in a 5.7L vortec EFI into a 1988 S15. I'm having some issues I can't identify. 1: when i try and coast on the freeway (50 MPH + ) the engine starts to go into compression, and slows my truck down. 2: At exactly 67MPH I get a whistle that will get louder or quieter depending if...

    Wanting to put a 96 z28 lt1 t56 drivetrain into a 93 2.8l s10. I have been looking thru the forums, most relatable ones are from years ago and get no response or they get closed.

    I’ve got a 88 350 tucked into my 89 4wd s10. I ordered the swap headers from JTR conversions. Well. They don’t fit as described. Passenger side comes into contact with the shock tower. Driver side is obstructed by the steering shaft and fuel lines and frame. I’ve tried a couple sets of...

What are some recommendations? *I realize this might be a dumb question, but I couldn't find anything that...

    From what I've heard, one of the easiest swaps you can do for the 2.8 is a 350. I would like to do this soon but I need to know everything I'm going to need and I cant find all that much about it. I would also like tips from people who have done this swap before. Anything will help I just need...

  8. LSx Discussion
    So I'm new to engine swaps entirely and have a few questions. I've seen questions about 4x4 and 5 speeds but not many 4x4 5 speeds. I am really wanting to drop a 5.3 lm7 in my truck. I'm curious as to what all I need to keep the 4x4 and manual transmission. If its at all possible, I'd like to...

    I have an 88 350 sbc. It has the roller lifters (as they all do). Do I need to run another roller cam and lifters or can I switch to an older style cam and lifters? Thanks

    How do I tell which gears I have in my rear end? And which gears will work best as a happy medium between acceleration and top end?
