lq9 swap

Hey guys, i don't know if you all remember me but this is where i first started out. I was waiting for thew new camaro when i saw some people on here who did ls1 swaps and stuff like that. tag ur it directed me to a few places and next thing you know i do a huge swap on my truck lol . i wanted to do a ls1 swap, then i was like hm, i might as well do a lq9 swap and mod it later. so after months of research and a lot of moding and a month at nelson performance my my swap is done. i have a head problem though thanks to the guy who scamed me on my motor an tranny but ill fix it and get it running right. so here it is my 98 lq9 4l80e swap













it ran really strong even with the head problem. here is what i did yesterday taking the head off







hopefully just a few more days and i can get it back on the road.

it was so nice, everytime it would shift the tires would spin

very common swap, usually more economical than a LS1 swap

thanks im guessing some were in the 13's off of what i have seen

in a 04 rcsb with the lq9, tune headers exhuast, cam rods and springs, he ran mid 12's.. these motors have so much tq its amazing for these small trucks. i mean it never wants to stop going


i was getting about 17 MPG in it with the bad head. i put around 300 miles on it.
