Did this video help you?

Demetriouslouden Louden: Did you also have to relocate the battery

Demetriouslouden Louden: Did you also have to relocate the battery

HURAM: @BLAZEDALLDATIME yours will be a blast with a t56 and better gearing than this one. I have not finished up my posi and gear setup

VectorPrimeZion: Real sleeper

HURAM: depends on price of engine/trans combo, accessories, etc. Some people spend 10k dollars on just the drivetrain. Some people can get away under 5k including car. Im 5k into engine, trans, rear end, hood, headers, exhaust, and custom oil pan

mxpeace: Hey did u use new motor mounts or adapter plates?? Is the truck oil pan too low?? Im doing a swap on my 87 monte.

ErikMartinez454: Is this swap posible to do on a 96-99 4WD GM Pickup truck???? thanks

TheMikeKen: Nice job, I have a 1985 hot air turbo grand national and was having the motor redone and seen this......how much to put a ls fuel injected motor in my car complete with everything working, and can I use my 2004r trans as I already paid aamco to rebuild it

HURAM: I'll make sure we take it off this week. I have to get the transmission rebuilt first. I knew the original th350 wouldn't last too long. I'm pretty sure the forward drum is crap.

fifo32: Im undecided what swap i want to do into my 1991 blazer k5 has the 350tbi and 700r4 with a 4" lift. What would you reccomend?

TheMikeKen: If ur interested in my grand national v6 I have lots a new parts like turbo throttle body, stater, water pump ,edelbrock cam and lifters, new double timing chain and cover...etc... Check my page and let me know thanks

frankie790: We still have to paint the hood man, its ugly lol

HURAM: @blocstrz approximately 4k bucks. The 700r4 will work with 1999-2002 cable driven engines, but is complicated to run with wire driven engines (no mechanical linkage to control the tv cable on the 700r4) thanks for the compliment!

John amezquita: Whats the price for u to mdify harness and pcm flash? I seen ur ad in craigslist but no price.

av8bud: so its mated to the stock 350? did it bolt right up or did you need an adapter? how hard was the wiring? thats the part that scares me, plus i have the same dash cluster that i want to keep using...

HURAM: @fifo32 4.8/5.3/6.0 w/4l60e or 4l80e. Ls based engines are the only option in my opinion. You get everything you've dreamed of in a project with them.

NoClassic: well done. You get alot of motor for the money with the LY6.

HURAM: @79z28maro it depends on your operating system. $425 (many 98-06 truck and fbody pcms) or $500 (e38, e40, etc) for harness modified and pcm tuned.

Travien Houston: i would like your help bad have an 5.3/4l60e

MR1000101: You make me sick! lol...and you better not never sell it!!!

blocstrz: besides engine/harness cost how much would a swap like this run me @huram and is my 700r4 tranny compatible? i have a 86 caballero , and by the way great job on the work

Travien Houston: what your set up like fuel,wiring,mounts,where you located

HURAM: Definitely!!! :-)

Mike Ken: So I have most of my parts almost ready for the swap......HOWEVER im using a LQ9 and its going in my grand national and I want to use my stock hood, will the motor fit, or will I have to change to a LS1 intake manifold, if so what all do I need the the car intake???

HURAM: yes it is possible in anything you can imagine GM

BLAZEDALLDATIME: dude you and i must be connected telepathically i have a 83 elcamino ss that i am putting an new ly6 with vvt headers t56 magnum new ford 9" with willwood disks this freaking rocks your awesome

John amezquita: Ok thanks when im ready Ill let you know.

Adam S: Land Rover is Horrible! I have personally only dealt with land rover of glen cove, and Land Rovers corporate head courters. But what i can tell you is that all the talk you always hear about land rovers breaking down OFTEN and not being reliable is VERY true. The company itself also does not stand behind their cars. I myself own a Range Rover Sport Autobiography edition. (MY VEHICLE WAS IN THE LAND ROVER GLEN COVE SHOP FOR A TOTAL OF OVER 100 DAYS OVER A 3 YEAR LEASE) Since i have had the car (2011 brand new) the suspension has had numerous issues and had to go into the shop. Sometimes only weeks after getting back out of the shop. The transmission also has been having problems for the past 2 years, yet land rover cant seem to find the problem, so that is still ongoing. Had a problem where something in my engine was loudly knocking the entire time i would drive, and i was told i would have to wait two weeks for them to have room for me to bring in the car. I argued and they allowed me to bring it within a day or so. Even had an issue where once when i picked up my vehicle from land rovers service, my sunroof wouldn't open. We found out this was because my roof got dented while being in land rovers shop. At first land rover refused to fix the damages until the BBB got involved. My point here is, if you decide to buy a land rover, be prepared for all the extra expenses you will incur as they overcharge you EXTREMELY on every service or anything done to the car. Also be prepared to get one of the many FAULTY CARS land rover sells people and have to bring it back in for repairs constantly (in which case you will probably wind up driving around in a loaner car (if they even give you one at all) for a decent amount of the time you own/lease the vehicle, worth much less then the car you are paying for. Oh and most of all, be prepared to NOT BE a "valued customer". I clearly am not considering they still have me in a vehicle that constantly breaks down and won't do anything about it. Horrible company with a horrible customer satisfaction.
snarky77005: I hat this commercial. I think the dubbed in baby noises are annoying.
steva30: looks like mine... I love the car BUT it has been in the shop 4 times for transmition problems....akkkkk

systemoverload1000: I don't get into petty consol wars because all consols have thier good and bad qualities.I own a PS3 so of course GT5 was my choice,but now that the Xbox 360 is under $200.00 I will be finally checking out Forza series!!
