Exclamation Is there a guide, so-to-speak on a V8 swap in an FC

I saw a thread on prices for an ls1 swap but i cant find anything that would serve as a guide to a v8 swap. It doesn't have to be step by step but something with wiring diagrams/issues and fabrication would be of great assistance. thanks in advanced,

Go to Norotors.com.

Read Frijolee's build thread. It is a very comprehensive FC swap thread that lays out a good list of the parts needed. You can read my build thread there too, and many others. Pretty much all the information you need is there to do the FC swap as efficiently and cheaply as possible.

Ronin Speedworks is the best place to go to get the mounts needed for a LS engine, the wiring harness mods, etc.

Here's the build thread that LOF alluded to.

Frijolee is one of the founding members of Ronin and this swap got started before Ronin existed (hence the use of other Vendors early on).

LOF's car is a pretty stellar example of a well sorted FC. A few custom things here and there but very achievable and outstanding results.
v8 swap kits, 8.8" diffs, widebodies, wings, and more...
