LS3 … or SBC
I’ve been thinking about an LS3 swap for at least a couple years, started a thread, looking to come up with a parts list, etc. I have a 68 with a 350 74-78 truck motor, TKO600 w/ 3.73, complete global west suspension, and Unisteer rack & pinion. Runs pretty well, no real problems.
The more I learn about the swap, the more i realize what a huge project it is (motor, electronics, mounts, headers, radiator, gas tank, etc, etc). From time to time I think it would we so much more simple to get a nice warmed over 350, 383, 400 sbc. I’m just looking for a little more hp and torque (and has to look nice). Other factor is, I can’t see doing the project myself (as much as I’d love to!), due to conflicting priorities for time, owning/running a business, family, etc. I thought I had someone lined up to do the LS3 swap for me this spring, until he blew me off (after waiting a year already).
For what it’s worth, I’d appreciate everyone’s feedback and advice (please). LS3 or SBC, and why? Thanx for listening.
