GM LS1 V8 Engine Swap Part I
Catching up on the times.. I have thrown in the towel on old obsolete
engines and have moved forward into a newer technology. I have given up on
my 455 for the simple fact that it is expensive to drive with high fuel
prices.. and an LS engine will provide me with better all around
performance and economy..
UPDATE: I ended up tossing a Q-jet on the 5.3 and calling it a day with the
LS1 cam this little guy pulls to 6000 no problem and melts the tires
without a problem.. You simply can't beat these little motors.

in split loom for protection and to retain the factory look.
