1979 Y84 Special Edition LS Engine Swap
Originally an Oldsmobile 403 powerplant that needed to rebuilt. Car was a full nut and bolt restoration by another shop. Our tasks were the mechanicals and electricals. Some highlights include:
Fabricating all transmission and fuel lines in stainless steel
Aluminum LS swap radiator with twin Delta PAG fans w/ custom shroud. Fans controlled by the engine ECU
Extensive rewiring to integrate the body and the new engine/ transmission.
Fuel tank with in-tank pump
Pro Touring Body Solid body mounts, Subframe Connectors, upper control arms and springs
Custom bent exhaust system
Factory gauges redone with LED lighting and functional Check Engine Light
Underside undercoated and interior sprayed with Lizard Skin heat and sound deadener
Car came in as a roller and left driving. Can’t wait to see this one back after the other shop is finished with the body and interior.
