1988-1998 GM Trucks LS Conversion
These LS swap kits are for 1988-1998 GM 2wd and 4wd trucks and 1992-1999 SUVs. 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.

Oil Pan kits
The LH8 pan is the oil pan that our LS swap was designed around. It comes standard or machined for the oil bypass valve to use with displacement on demand or variable valve timing. Includes new full length windage tray, pickup tube, hardware, gasket, dipstick, and our pickup tube girdle. We also offer our High Clearance oil pan that is great for people looking for additional ground clearance.

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.
Oil pan kits come with our exclusive pickup tube girdle.
Muscle Rods 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. These headers do not work with 4wd. Includes gaskets, bolts, reducers, and O2 sensor bungs. Standard ceramic finish is polished silver, contact us for bare steel and black ceramic coated pricing.
At this time there are no headers available for 4wd trucks. You can use the original LS truck manifolds along with our engine mount kit and oil pan kits.

MuscleRods Stainless Steel Headers
We have found that 1 7/8" is the best size header for most LS swaps. So, we now offer a 1 7/8" long-tube in stainless steel specifically for this LS swap. These headers feature 3/8" flanges and very smooths bends that create a great raw stainless look. The 304 Stainless steel ensures maintenance-free longevity. 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.
Smooth bends and transitions in 304 stainless steel.
We have Stainless band clamps and header bolts along with reducer cones to help you complete your exhaust system. Click here for more info.
