Re: Ls1 swap?

Well its going to be $$$$. I know some guy that did an LT1 swap. That ended up costing him up $4000 in parts. He did get a good deal on the engine. Some kit crashed his car and he bought the engine of him for $500. So it might be a little $$$.

4k for an LT1 swap? Someone saw him coming. I have maybe 3200 in mine and that's including the price of the motor and tranny (6-speed)

This isn't a bad swap, I did the LT1 swap in mine and love it, the LS1 made about 25 more hp than the LT1 did but at the time the LT1 was cheaper for me to do. I would have done an LS1 swap, but the motor/tranny combo was around $3500 where I gave $2500 for the LT1/T56 I currently have. The headers are expensive but alot run the stock 4th gen mainfolds. You can find alot of info on the LTx/LSx forum on thirdgen.org.
