1968-1972 A-Body LS Conversion

This LS swap kit is made specifically for 1968-1972 Chevelle, Le Mans, GTO, Tempest, Cutlass, Skylark, and GS. The center of this conversion is our engine mounts and crossmember kit. This mount kit includes new frame brackets that bolt into existing holes in the frame. Unlike most LS swap parts on the market everything here was made to work together, so you'll have clean mounting of your engine and not a mix of unrelated parts. Our engine mounts position the engine so there is no steering interference, and our crossmember maintains the proper drive-line angle. There are many options to complete this conversion including, oil pans, headers, fuel system, cooling, front accessories, and wiring. Simply scroll down through the following part groups to see all that we offer for an easy, strong, and clean installation of your LS engine. See our installation guide for more info on this LS swap.  El Caminos use the Convertible part numbers since they use the same boxed frame.

Mount and Crossmember Kit

Oil Pan kits

We developed our MuscleRods high-clearance oil pan to offer the best combination of fit, clearance, oil control and ease of installation. Built to our specs by Moroso, the pan works with strokes up to 4.125" and retains the OEM oil filter location. The high-clearance pan kit includes the pickup tube, gasket, hardware and our exclusive pickup-tube girdle. The GM LH8 Muscle Car pan can also be used with this conversion, but please be aware the sump will extend below the front crossmember approximately 1 to 1-1/2 inches. For this reason our high-clearance pan is a must for any vehicle that has been lowered.

BRP Oil Pump Pickup Tube Girdle

Original GM oil pickup tubes are fastened to the pump with a single bolt mating flange on the tube. The bolt hole on the other side is not used. Our Girdle is cnc machined aluminum and goes over the original mating flange, wraps around the tube, and fastens using both bolt holes. Use with a little Locktight and it’s cheap insurance against an engine meltdown. It comes with two longer bolts for install.

MuscleRods Ceramic Coated Headers

Our ceramic-coated headers offer many features that are normally only found on custom race headers. We start with 3/8" laser cut flanges with the tubes welded inside and out and then machined. The mid-length headers use a gasket-less ball and socket type collector for a leak free install. The long tubes feature a slip-fit collector that when used in conjunction with band clamps offer great ground clearance .We offer several sizes so you can match them to your horsepower level. Our stepped headers offer great high rpm performance while retaining good low and mid-range power. They all include gaskets, bolts, reducers, and O2 sensor bungs. Standard ceramic finish is polished silver, contact us for bare steel and black ceramic coated pricing.

EFI In-Tank Pump Fuel Tanks kits

There are two main fuel supply issues that arise when converting an early vehicle to late-model fuel injection: One is getting the fuel pump to live during long runs in high temperatures and the other is keeping the fuel pickup covered with fuel at low fuel levels. Our EFI conversion tanks solve both problems the same way the OEM manufacturers do by installing the fuel pump in the tank, and baffling the tank to minimize fuel slosh. Having the fuel pump in the tank keeps it cool, and a baffling system inside controls fuel movement and keeps the pump fed even at low fuel levels and extreme driving conditions. Another great benefit is that once installed, these tanks look like the originals. Click for more info.

Fuel Line and Regulator Kit

Our quick and easy complete fuel line systems includes everything needed to go from the fuel tank to the LS fuel rail. Includes P.T.F.E. braided and covered fuel line, an OE style fuel filter/regulator combo, line clamps, and all fittings and connectors needed.
