1976 Vega Wagon Project LS swap Part 1, Overview.
Whats up everyone, figured I'd do a overview of our little Vega project. It
used to have a 350, with a t5 out of a Camaro. We are going to modernize
it up a little, with a different small block Chevrolet. Andrew and I
(Xander) pulled the engine the other day, and were getting ramped up to get
this little guy in the shop. The plan is to keep the EFI, Id like a LS1
intake but the plans for the truck intake and no hood. We will be making
the wiring harness standalone, and neatening/hiding the wires too. We'll be
changing it to 5 bolt with s10 spindles and rear end.
Thats the plan, if you have done this swap, and have some tips please
I will be making an update of the Bug too soon, BIG progress on that guy.
Jim and his 73 Vega Station Wagon
Just a little clip I put together of my friend Jim and his 73 Vega. Jim
just got this car back on the road after being down for over 6 years. It's
on an all new set-up that Jim built himself from the ground up in his
garage. Some of the highlights are a 370ci LSX assembled by Jim with 243
(LS6) heads assembled and ported/polished by Jim, twin Precision 6262's,
custom manifolds, down-pipes and Exhaust all fabbed, welded and polished by Jim.
Intercooler is a custom water
to air also built and polished by Jim. Fuel is good ol' pump E85. About
the only thing Jim hasn't done on the car is the tuning which he had Jeremy
of Servion Tuning do using HPtuners at Revolutions Performance. The car
still has a few odds an ends to finish up before it's 100% streetable while
also to click off 8 second 1/4 mile times. So far on the break-in tune
it's already put down over 900whp and 800wtq.
