5.3 swap????

Postby coryh8504 » Mon Jan 10, 2022 5:01 pm

Anyone else get the random urge to rip the 5.3 out of a gxp and wedge it into a beretta? Or is just my brain telling me to do this.

I saw somebody on the Facebook group who just bought a FWD 5.3 to swap. Don't think he's actually started it yet though.

I'm doing RWD with my LS swap. More work, but a better functioning car in the end.

What ls family engine. 5.7 5.3 4.8?
I'm still trying to fab parts for suspension, once it warms up I gotta gut the interior and have the glass pulled so I can start the cage install.

I would love to. I'm still pulling hair trying to PROPERLY redo the FWD 4.0L 4-cam V-8 in my Teal Indy though. After that, if I am still alive, I may do the twin-engine push-me-pull-you in the 'old' Z-26... That would tie a neat little bow around the last of my sanity. Maybe a 5.3 FWD WOULD be easier...

Truck LR4 4.8 for the easy RPM. I just grabbed a couple LM7 5.3s to have around since they were a good deal. I'm working on the rear suspension for my RWD swap right now. Bunch of info on my youtube channel link in my sig.
