1973-1987 GM Trucks LS Conversion
This LS swap kit is for 1973-1987 GM ½ ton and 3/4 ton 2wd and 4wd trucks and 1973-1991 SUV. 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.

They feature a slip-fit collector that when used with stainless steel band clamps offer the best ground clearance in the industry. The collector merge-spike increases power and they include gaskets, bolts, and O2 sensor bungs.
120-6795 1 7/8” Stainless Steel long-tube headers (2wd only) $1049.00
All of our stainless headers feature a collector merge-spike that creates a smooth transition from the primary tube into the collector. It reduces low pressure turbulence increasing the scavenging effect of the cylinders thus increasing flow and power output.
