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.

Torben Lichtenhagen: Laxmi Mittal is a very eloquent, intelligent and humble man. No wonder he is closing French steel plants if president Sarkozy closes the car door harshly before his nose without giving him hand. No matter how much You have achieved or accumulated wealth (as an Indian), created jobs the Europeans in power (specifically the German and French) don't respect You as an Indian. I just watch the documentary on arte TV about Laxmi Mittal , where his story is told. If the French in power had respected him more, You can't find a better friend than Laxmi Mittal. I hope his business will recover soon from the worldwide crisis (overproduction, falling prices) in steel asap. Very nice gentleman I wish him health & a long life. Hopefully his Mittal Steel recovers very soon!!!
elrabbitsbbq: if you missed it here it is... Thanks for all the view!!!
