Here is my advise. Skip the LS swap and do all of you pro-touring mods

Wheels & Tires

Nice seats
Steering Wheel

Then enjoy the car for a little bit before you spend 10 grand on the swap.

There is nothing wrong with the small block as is. They have worked for years leave it and enjoy it.

I live in the Houston area did call couple shops and after talking to them was around 10 - 13 k depending. So since the car I bought has 383 stroker new plan is just what this said. I bought a msd atomic efi, new fuel tank, lines, painless wiring kit, and then will redo interior then suspension. I just could not fit everything in at one time wih my budget but this route should get me 70 - 75 % long as everything goes well.

I would also buy a new crate. What people are asking is just stupid. I'm actually looking for an LS7 and have only found ones that are pretty darn new price.
I like that idea but with my budget have this year have to go a different route.
