startup of my 1983 chevy el camino after swapping in a 6.0l vortec engine. This is just a progress video. The vehicle is far from done. The car has a built 350C transmission. The engine and the rest of the car is stock. I wish i was able to close the stock hood, but the way that I mounted the engine necessitates a cowl hood.
How To Connect a LSx Series V8 to older GM 4 Speed Manual Transmission
In this video I show you how to connect your original older 4 speed manual
transmission such as a Borg Warner Super T10 or a Muncie M20/M21/M22 to
your new LS Series engine you might want to swap into your car.
Part Numbers you need:
Sachs - Clutch Kit Part # K5552-03 from O'Reilly's
Note *(10 Spline clutch)
Sachs - Flywheel Part # NFW1050 from O'Reilly's
LS2/LS7 Pilot Bearing Part # : 57080 from O'Reilly's
Grade 8 Metric Bolts for pressure plate
1999 s10 ls1 swap
It took me 2 months and 3 weeks to complete the swap after I built the
engine. Cab was removed and everything under the truck cab forward has
been detailed and painted. Battery is under right rear of cab,
transmission cooler and fan are under the bed. Engine is out of a 01
Corvette and has a Lunati Voodoo cam 60510. Home built 1 3/4 stainless
fenderwell headers into 2.5" Exhaust
into dynatech mufflers with C6 Vette tips. Home built air intake that goes
straight down into 3.5" aluminum tubing off of the throttle body and into a
T with 2 air filters tucked under the front bumper. Truck has A/C and all
the creature comforts. It drives like a beast thanks to Pete for the
perfect tune. Truck is not finished but I do drive it. Have a couple more
connections to finish out under the hood then Ford 9" rear and new wheels
and tires. Hopefully in the fall I will remove the bed and detail out the
frame back there.
Extreme Elco Engine Swap! - Roadkill Episode 4
On this episode of Roadkill, David Freiburger, Mike Finnegan and a carsick
dog drive a '69 El Camino 500 miles from home (on seven cylinders) to
change an engine in the parking lot of Summit Racing.
The story goes that Finnegan's wife's grandfather bought this1969 Chevy El
Camino brand new, and it's been passed down through the family, finally to
her. It's a solid car, and the suspension has been hopped up, but the
all-original 350 engine was smoking like a freight train. That didn't stop
the guys from limping it from Los Angeles, California to Sparks, Nevada,
where Summit Racing has a fully-stocked warehouse.
Summit sells every speed part and replacement part on Earth, including the
420hp, 383ci crate engine, so the logic was that the guys would save time
on the engine swap because they could walk right into the store instead of
driving to a parts store multiple times, as they would have back home.
So how long will it take a couple gearheads to change an engine outside in
a snow flurry? Will the EPA shut them down before they can finish? And what
happens when you let a carsick dog ride shotgun? Watch to find out!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

Super Sleeper 1972 Nova - /BIG MUSCLE
Wanna race? If so you may want to reconsider. You see this is Dru Diesner's
1972 Chevrolet Nova and it's anything but stock. From a looks perspective
it's nothing special, in fact most people wouldn't put up $500 for this
thing. Look a little deeper though and OH MOMMA! You see under its faded
green paint lurks a twin supercharged LS2 that makes 1,160 hp... at the
rear wheels. It epitomizes the term "sleeper", and is lethal to just about
every other road going vehicle it comes in contact with. Big Muscle
recently visited Northern Chicago to get a sample of this beast, and holy
crap was it one of the best automotive experiences we've ever had.
