Here's my 80 Malibu that began as a s/s race car now I'm doing a LS Swap and putting on the street to have a killer street sleeper. I purchased a 6.2 out of a 2010 escalade and 4L80e trans. Looking forward to the wealth of knowledge I can get from the guys who have already been thru this already.

Subbed... this'll be cool :D I only see older generation LS motors in G-Bodies. I won't go smaller than 6.2 personally.

Dude,you have a nitrous outlet puck in that thing. I just saw those. What did it cost to get it and have it installed,if you don't mind me asking? Did you have to send in your intake to them? How long did it take to get back if so? And how much plenum room does it take up? Im wondering how it will work when your just on motor. Looks like a cool build.

It's a 10in rim, we cut the frame down to a little over 1/2 in, its not more than an inch.

Yes that's the puck. My intake had spray bars in it at first so they had to take those out first. With labor it was $1100. I did have to send my intake, it was about a week and a half. The puck is about 2in tall.

L92's with the exhaust opened up and a clean up job on the intake and port matched.
