More pics of the cam swap.

Apparently the LSX block has different lifter buckets that DO NOT hold the lifters up for a cam swap without removing the heads. So I had to remove the heads and ordered ARP head bolts and new gaskets.

Unfortunately I did not get a picture of the new cam and such in. It's a 3-Bolt style with ARP bolts and an LS2 Style dampener.

I also did the Comp Trunion upgrade just in case.

Parts? Well.. Pretty much everything on the LS3 or L99 swap over. You just have to modify the A/C bracket to fit the larger block by grinding some of the back of it.

The harmonic balancer that comes with the lsx has to be changed to the ls3 one and the oil pressure sender is wrong so reuse the ls3 one.

It's true. Trading it in.

Whoever buys it, will be a lucky person. The car is pre-built for a supercharger.
