98 LS1 /ported heads /small cam
Standalone ECM
Shorty headers
Factory cats
Custom Dual exhaust
Custom accessory brackets & motor mounts

Should sound pretty wicked :rock:

Dasilva Motorsports are your custom application LS swap specialists
 
I tried that on my license plate (HLN A55). Didn't get too far LOL

Love the transplant. Have a buddy who is the original owner of an 83 that is SHOWROOM original with a standard trans. Wanted him to drop an LS into it!!!

This truck was actually ship from BC to Ontario last year , and now its in my shop .............small world huh
 
That almost looks like Louis' Stojanvich's of Active Gr. and Ross?????

Same kind of swap if it's not.

C.

Kind of , its a friend of Terrys ( Woodstockcarguy) .

Louies is a an s10 Blazer , this is a full size 1500 1/2 ton .
 
That's coming together really well. Those mounts look awesome! I guess another bonus to this swap is that he'll be in a hot rod class for e-test time, since a 350ci never came in those trucks. Talk about win, win.;):beer:

I don't know where this hot rod class idea comes from. A local guy has a rat rod and when they checked his car, they found that the engine was from a 1984 truck. He needed all the stuff that came on the '84 truck on his vehicle. He needed the closed breather with the heat stove, smog pump system, and EGR intake manifold with working EGR. I forget now, but he probably would have needed the catalytic converter too. He showed me the slip that he keeps in his glove box to show that the car now complies. Of course, everyone gets a different story depending on which MOE guy you talk to. It really is a mess.
 
A few more from the custom bracket installation :

Notice how we able to use all the factory accessories from the 305 on the LS1

Getting closer :D
 
At one time you wouldn't think of putting a hipo motor in a work vehicle. They didn't idle very well in gear with stock torque converters and didn't have a lot of torque on the bottom end. I'm talking engines of similar displacement to these LS Corvette engines. The first thing that impressed me about ours was the bottom end torque. It felt as strong as any of the big block cars that I have ever owned. These are great especially when you add the terrific gas mileage. This project is coming along very nicely. Someone has been busy.
