Heads and cam make the power and the LS design has decades of improvements built into it.

I get an LS swap makes sense when comparing a old school SBC. Swap all your old school GM stuff you want. lol



And a Gen 3 Coyote head outflows the, not so old, NASCAR heads. So...


Coyote swaps > LS swaps



















Swaps are dumb. Turbo the world.

Like I said, the older SBC to LS makes sense. Power potential is definitely there. A lot less needed versus a LS into a non-gm product.

Nothing wrong with an LS Swap into a GM vehicle. What triggers me is LS swap in a Mustang...

Lets pump the brakes here Jeff Goldblum. Not everyone wants to be unique and spend 7 years and thousands of dollars for crazy things that dont plan out.

Seriously, if it were that easy to just go do something and make it work, wouldnt more people do it? Instead of a few people doing it, perfecting it, and profiting by making swap kids?

Anyway, I guess Ill throw my list out there. Black rims, Bullett style rims, AE077s, ohh crap. Im stuck in 2004.

I'd love to have a 4G63 swapped fox. But those are stupid expensive for some reason.

Shhhhhhh, these rubes don’t know that

My dad had an SVO when I was growing up, and I’ve always dreamt of building one, the Volvo heads seem like a cool build. I thought I remember a guy building a twin turbo Volvo headed 2.3

I wish more rb26 swaps existed. They’re really not that expensive of a buy-in

I’ve had old school sbc’s and bbc’s. I really wanted to do an LS swap, mainly because the only project I’ve never finished was another Chevelle I was LS swapping 7 years ago that I gave up halfway through and sold the roller. For me it was more of a personal goal. The internet lied, it was not cheap but the hype is real. I’ll never go back to a sbc/bbc.


Other fads, salt life, hoonigan or family stickers. I’m just over the automotive tramp stamps at this point.

Actually, throw in windshield banners too.

People buying new cars, putting them away hoping they’ll be worth big bucks in the future. Drive the fuckin things.

I’m teetering on barn finds. They’re cool as fuck but that phrase doubles the price lol.

Show only cars. Again, drive the fuckin things.

Sema cars. At one point I wanted to go but have heard from plenty of people that say the builds are slapped together shit that’s non functional garbage.

Calling a race car a street car.

The cockiness that comes with drag racing. All other racing looks fun (half mile/autocross ect), I don’t get why drag racing has so many egos. I’m guilty but have seen the light and wanna make drag racing great again.

I think the amount of car clubs with stock cars is starting to get out of hand. Also women who deem themselves auto enthusiast but the only thing they do their car is pay the note. And saying your car is built not bought because you payed someone to build it. Pretty much agree with 99% of this thread except the curb feelers

rivet on over fenders, "stance", bro dozers, wastegate "screamer" pipes, fender exit exhaust on non race cars, tinted headlights, plastidip paint jobs, matte wrapped vehicles, anti lag on cars that just sit in parking lots, hella flush, fake race car builds that just sit in parking lots, chassis mounted wings on street cars, dildo shift knobs, neochrome anything, eBay quick release steering wheels, "drift missiles", volkswagens and i think thats all i can think of off the top of my head.
