Hi TAC,

I have received many requests for people that have questions on putting some form of LS engine into their cars and thought I would put together a post. I have done a lot of research on the topic and have lots of first hand knowledge from the car I put together for myself. Now that I don't have a project of my own, I am hoping to help out others get their projects back on the road.

What I am proposing, is that if you are seriously interested in having someone put an LS engine in your car but don't have the time or expertise, I am offering my services to you. I have all of the technical knowledge to put the engine into your car, as well as what parts will work and what parts won't. Another huge component that I have is the computer software to make any changes to the LS computers. I can change any parameter from the VATS to VE tables and flash it onto the ECU.

I would like to charge a flat rate for my services that we can discuss options such as engine/trans/exhaust. I can do as much or as little as you need me to do. I'm not looking to start a business, but rather have fun building cars and help fund my next project car. As many know, I had to sell my car to be more financially responsible... :cool: But in no way did this detour me from cars and thinking about my next project.

Send me a PM for more details and we can discuss in more details.

Thanks,
Ryan

Wish you were closer.  This is exactly what I've been looking for as I plan my swap.

Where are you located. I have a rotisserie restored perfect 77 Trans Am matching number 400, W72, but it revs so slow and low rpm redline. I have either an LS6 or perhaps new LSA, also need overdrive trans

I'm located in Upstate, NY. An LS6 or LSA would certainly take care of your slow revving 400.  :lol:

Are the manual transmissions from 04 to 06 gtos as good as the 98 to 2002 f body transmissions? Or are they different somehow.

The 04-06 GTO T56's are more desirable due to the better syncro packs and gearing. The tail shafts are the same, but the shifters are different. I believe it is a fairly straight forward swap to the 98-02 style shifter.

Possibly moving in the next few months, and the new place has a smaller garage. Not sure if I will be able to do a full LS swap in the future, but time will tell. I still have the ability to make tuning changes though.
