The LS4 is the Impala/Monte motor, a bit more civilized (5.3 crank but with the Z06's heads and the LS6 engine block) and set up for FWD from the factory.Well, I spent some time under my box seeing what it would take to build it into a RWD V8 powered monster, and it is definatly do-able, but it would be very expensive and labor intensive. I would love to pick up a used box with a blown motor and give it a shot, but no way am I gonna hack up my 06 lol. I was actually thinking about the 4.7 V8 out of the tundra. That HP would still be RIDICULOUS in a box with RWD, let alone a Vette motor. Man, would a little box be fun with a vette motor lol. But if you think about it, if you did a RWD conversion, you would likely have to get the rear sized anyway, you could tuck some serious lip with the right sized rear and a mini-tub. That would be sick......
Even a V6 out of a taco would be a vast improvement in power, and that torque would make for some serious launches.
My bad, I read it too fast lol. Thanks for the explain tho.The LS4 is the Impala/Monte motor, a bit more civilized (5.3 crank but with the Z06's heads and the LS6 engine block) and set up for FWD from the factory.
A bit less fabbing but I know what you mean.
It would probably be easier to just stick with a similiar engine and work with that but I was hoping someone knew a shop that did swaps.
I mean the RX-7 crowd is CONSTANTLY doing LSX engine swaps.
From or to?excuse my noobish question but what would be an old cheap car that would be worth it to do an engine swap with?
