2003 S-10 zr2 extended cab 4x4 - 5.3 swap and trans upgrade

822 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Harley
I'm looking for someone in Virginia, or any state somewhat close to Virginia that can handle doing the vortec 5.3 LS swap with transmission and do any necessary upgrades to frame/mounts/crossmembers/exhaust etc. that will make the swap perfect and easy to service later on. Looking for someone who will go the extra mile and make the job look like it came from the factory. Not too concerned with the price. I want more horsepower and torque, with a transmission and engine built better than stock to go faster, tow better and able to take some abuse. I would love to do it myself but would rather give the job to someone who specializes in doing this swap. I know of Current Performance in Florida but would like someone possibly closer if they exist. Thanks!

What's your timeline?

I did the swap in @Rhotpursuit truck and I'm now in Williamsburg, VA.

I won't be able to take on a project like this in the next 6-12 months, but I can certainly get you the results you want.

@Rhotpursuit i'm just gathering info right now, I would like to do this within the next 1.5-2 years. do you have a website or facebook page or something?
No website for me. I'm not a shop. I did work at a Corvette & Classics shop for while which is where I swapped the C10 in the picture above. Started a K10 while I was there, but my wife got a job out here in Virginia, so wasn't able to finish.

My Blazer - Long thread and learned a bunch helping on other swaps along the way.

The thread I posted up here after I took the 10,000 mile maiden road trip
