Default LSx engine swap guides

As an attempt to clean up and organize the stickies a little better I am going to try and list all of the swap guides that I can find in this sticky.

General LS swap guides.

Vehicle specific

GM A-Body

(LT1 to LS1)
(V6 to LS1)

67-69 f-bodies



1967-72 Trucks

BMW E30 (325 series)
I will post more of these as I find them, so if you have a thread that should be listed in this sticky please PM me.

65-66 (or 65-70) B Bodies would be awesome... I'm quite surprised that these swaps don't seem to be more popular with those cars.

Anyone know if there is a guide to wiring harness modification on this site? I'm looking to convert a regular truck harness to stand alone.

That was a 1998, 1999 isnt too much different. 1993-1997 is a little more different, but not much from my 1995.

Talking ls swap in my hotrod

newbe to this forum here. I put an 2004 GTO ls1 in my hotrod. the collectors for the stock exhaust manifolds interfere with my motor mounts. i've seen stock manifolds where the collectors are under or behind the last cylinder. what are they from and where is a good place to find them? 2nd, the thermostat housing points out towards the passenger side, I think i've seen some point straight out towards the front, again what are they from and where is the best place to find it? trying to avoid high dollar parts. Any help is appreciated.

Hey guys, does anyone know if you can swap an old stock 350 tbi in a 87 4X4 sierra with a 6.0 litre motor and still use the 700r4 trans and original transfer case? Will the motor mounts need to be moved? etc? Thanks
