Hi there!

I do live in Norway, and looking for an LY6 engine, complete to put in my 67.
A Crate is to expensive, so looking for a used one.

Since it is impossible to find here, i must import.

Where do you buy them?
And what is normal to Pay at a wreckingyard?

My only option for now is eBay, and there they are about $2500


Im using JetCarrier to ship to Norway, so i have a NewJersey adress in my name!

Im planning on keeping the VVT.
And also like the L92 heads.

Gives me the ability to drop on an LSA Supercharger down the road.

That's probably about right on eBay depending on mileage. You could certainly find one cheaper through a local search, but that doesn't help you over there.

You could try car-part.com and enter a year/make/model that had an LY6. Search for engines and it should cross reference all available LY6's. Just leave out your zip code in your search. If nothing else it will show you the price range for various mileage engines.

I paid $4500 for a complete 20,000 mile LY6 / 4L80 combo.
I like your idea with the LSA Supercharger.

I have tought about that. But is there anyone giving me a discount if i dont want the warranty?
Or will they send me a ****edUp Engine, since the know they newer see it again!

A warrantie is worth **** to me, since a return is out of the question.
I will probably find a cheap one an rebuild anyway. Then i can only blame myself, if it fails.

Hollanderparts looks Good
And i saw a shop on eBay called: Just Chevy Trucks

It is pretty easy for me to use eBay and PayPal.
Im feel more safe paying $2500 on a system that i trust.

There is a risk anyhow.
Probably go for eBay i think, and trust the FeedBack.

Lars, did you ever contact Tony at American Speed Center. As Garth had noted earlier they send regular shipments to Norway with parts and have been our local speed center for over 40 years! Tony will give you straight answers to your questions that will assist with your decision.

I havent been here for months!

But i bought a L99 Engine this Summer. (128.000 miles)
I bought it on fleaBay from a Company.

no transmission, no wiring, no ECU. $1600

I bought a Haltech Engine Management
Tremec T56 Magnum
and an LS9 Clutch with Flywheels for 6-bolt Crank.
LS3 Intake Manifold

I have removed the VVT Stuff, and installed an LS1 Camshaft with LS2 Timing.

Im building the wiring from scratch, and planning on a DynoRun this winter.

When im familiar with the ECU, im tearing down the Engine and see how it looks. New bearing, Bolts, Pistons. And the stuff needed.

Whaiting for the Price for a Couple of Garrett Turboes.
(have not decided yet.)

Aiming for som StreetFriendly 7-800 HP

Brent, he might have switched from a single bolt cam to a 3 bolt type.
