    I swapped from the ol 5.7 to a LQ9 and it was the best decision I could've made for that truck which was a '98 Chevy ECSB. I know you said LQ4 so if that's the case I would highly recommend at least...

    I can get a complete dropout 4.8/5.3/6.0 with ecm, harness, and front drive accessories for around $600 the local junkyard. It's harder to find a 6.0 but I recommend it if you want a slightly better...

    Coming from a guy who bought the adjustable mounts from dirty dingo, I highly recommend that you save and get those. I did my swap with no help at all and those mounts made a huge difference....

    My hat is off to you and the rest of the apartment dwellers who still manage to find ways to wrench on their vehicles! I knew a guy in the Air Force that rebuilt an axle and prepped it for a sas in...

    That's not a bad idea using the potentiometer, I'm definitely gonna have to try that. I have the 3 wire camaro gauge and I'm pretty sure I'm reading about 10-15 degrees off but I'll have to check...

    I have a pretty similar setup. I've got a '98 ecsb with an '05 LQ9 that I finished swapping last April and my post is buried here somewhere. I was also in the process of working out some gauge and...

    Now winter is upon us so I assume you're taking a break on your truck until spring thaw?

    Wow! What a transformation!! I thought I'd chime in about the headers because I did an LQ9 swap to my 4x4 '98 ecsb truck and that thread is buried somewhere on this section of the forum. I used...

    The swap is awesome, I have zero regrets. I'm still going to work on finishing my harness cleanup, installing a new radiator with dual e-fans, upgrading the trans to an 80, and putting all my a/c...

    Doing a body drop is some serious work, I'd like to see your build thread on that one when you get it going. An engine swap is a walk in the park compared to that!

    I'm thinking about doing the same as you. Throw a 5.3 with a mild cam and headers in my daily, and then build an all out race truck out of my single cab short bed C-10 with a 6.0 and twins on it.

    I thought the same thing Jeff. When GM was transitioning to the gen 4 platform, it was a sloppy transition because there were a lot of motors with and without AFM/VVT designs. I read a quote in an LS...

    From my understanding the schoenfeld headers are meant to be "conversion" headers for the obs trucks. Double check the part numbers because the one I found on their site in a 1 7/8" header is...

    For me, using the DBW setup was pretty seamless. I think I would go to a DBC setup if I was building a race motor because in racing, every tenth of a second counts and you don't want to have any lag...

    That's ridiculous because the lq9 and lq4 block is the exact same block (casting number and all), the only difference between the two engines is the flat top coated pistons that boost compression in...

    The hole wasn't drilled because the block casting is thin and there is an oil passage behind I believe. The older gen blocks obviously had a lot more meat to drill in to than the new gens. I read...
