Can anyone recommend a good shop that knows LS1 S10 V8 swaps for a 2003 Xtreme? I also want new disc brakes and upgraded suspension installed all around. I can travel pretty much anywhere from DC to New England and out to OH if the shop is reputable and has experience with S10 V8 swaps.

Any suggestions?

Be prepared to spend 75+ a hour for labor. So for a swap your looking about 10,000. Lol. Unless you bring it to my house. I'm in ct. I'll cut you a deal

I was budgeting about $6,000 for engine & trans from a 2004 GTO and $5,000 for install. If I run over budget I can put off the brake and suspension upgrade until next year. My main concern is the quality of the work. I want the truck to run like factory.

I could do it for you, considering you have the proper parts, etc. 5 grand is a lot if you have the correct parts

I'll do it for you no problem in a professional shop and I have plenty of experience. I have 2 in the shop now and just finished another in Nov. $5k is about right when you consider all parts and labor.

Cost depends on if your truck is 4cyl or 6 cyl.

If 4cyl then you need to deal with front suspension and PCM with the swap. If a 6cyl then you may be able to get by with existing suspension assuming the LS is all aluminum and use existing PCM. Bigger rad/fans either way.

Shop around and ask questions.

Did you post on V8S10.org?

Hello!

Apologies for digging up an ancient thread, but this looked like the most appropriate place. I live in Las Vegas and am trying to find a reputable shop anywhere in the west that has experience in doing S-10 v8 swaps. In particular, I'm looking to put an LSx into my 5-speed 1992 x-cab 4.3 model.

Any input from the forum would be greatly appreciated.
