Installation Available: http://v8speedshop.com/contact 314.783.8325 - The GM LS Engine is a super-popular swap candidate for many reasons, but they are not very attractive as-installed in their original cars. In this video, we show you some different LS style enigines in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop and some things our crew did to make these versatile engines look as good as the Muscle Cars in which they are installed! Some of the tricks include using adapters to install traditional small-block parts like Edelbrock Elite II valve covers and air cleaner on the 6 Liter V8 in the red 1965 Impala. We also show a ZR1-style LS9 installed in the ZR9 Camaro, the L92 V8 in the '64 C-10 pickup, and some Eastwood ceramic engine paint to keep them looking great.
Muscle Cars look great, but they often don't handle as well as today's performance cars, especially considering that cars build in 1970 are over 45 years old! We can refresh or upgrade the steering, brakes, suspension, shocks, sway bars, ball joints, bushings, and other critical parts to make your Muscle Car handle like it is on rails. Of course, we can also perform stock restorations to make your Classic drive the way it did the day it was built, it's all up to you. Contact us today at 314.783.8325 to discuss your project or fill out the contact form and we'll get back to you. Weather you want to repair worn-out parts, gain improved performance, or participate in autocross or road-course racing events, we can make it happen!
