GM LS style V8 engine

Recommended Posts

I mentioned this in the meetings about a year ago, but i am still looking for a late model GM V-8. I will consider a 5.3 liter out of a pick up truck up to the 6.2 liter LS-3. I would mention the 7.0 liter, but that is a fantasy. I almost bought an LQ-4 6.0 liter out of a pickup truck last week, but it got sold before I could look at it. The engine can be low miles ready to drop in or need a rebuild. Please keep your eyes and ears open for me.

Thanks Tom, not bad, but I am still looking for that screaming deal. Like that $1500 Z28 Camaro that I let get away.

I found an LS-1 in Louisiana for $1300. I am having it shipped up this week, but I need to find a location to get it shipped to. I have access to a pick up truck. SO I am looking for a distribution point that will drop it in the pick up for me.

LS-1 is in the garage and on the engine stand. Started the disassembly Sunday. Wiring harness, coil packs, exhaust manifolds and front accessories have been removed. Taking detailed pictrures along the way and starting to formulate the rebuild plan. I still have plenty of time though as I won't actually rebuild this engine for a year or so. Need to do the subframe and vintage AC first.
