I've searched around, and read the threads containing some local shops. I'd like to have an LS1 put in my TJ. I'll supply the drop-out, radiator, ecu, harness, mounts, etc.. need someone with skill and experience to perform the swap for me. This is more than just a take-out-engine-put-in-engine job.
I've called Appalachian Offroad and was told they don't really do this anymore.
Midatlantic 4x4 said they would do it.. anyone have experience with them on this scale?
I'm fine with some after-work guys doing it, too, if they've got the references.
Talked to Jeff at Adrenaline.. he's doing an LS1 swap into a TJ right now, but isn't sure yet how much labor he'll have into it by the time he's done. Hopefully in a couple of weeks he'll have a better idea.
Mostly done with the big stuff. Well except for the drive line. 5.7L and a 4l60e with stock xfer case. Stock axles for now. It's already on 35's with a 4.5" lift. I'd actually like to get the high line kit and lower it some.
FYI there is no such thing as a take out the old motor and just drop in the new motor... All the plumbing will be different, wiring, and such.
With that said feel free to give me a call tomorrow. Have done LS swaps and was doing the one for Jeff at Adrenaline. I can also say the one that is at Jeff's came from Mid Atlantic after they said they couldn't do it...
