Re: Doing LS Swap - I have no idea what I'm doing!

Well, good news!! Sold the old motor/trans. Posted it on FB Marketplace and it blew my phone up. In a matter of seconds, messages started pouring in. We made a grocery run and get back to the house and I had 42 messages about it. First guy that said he'd take it, flaked out and didn't show up, quit responding to messges. Second guy came to look at it instantly, decided not to take it. 3rd guy bought it and loaded it up.

So, this morning, got my order in for a 2004 5.3 engine that has 126k miles on it. All accessories, wiring, computer. Transmission is a 2007 w/ 98k miles on it. Being Thanksgiving weekend, they said they would have it pulled and ready on Monday. I'm doing a happy dance!!

Exciting! I've been taking advantage of black Friday sales left and right! The power of social media is crazy, I was selling my house earlier this month and wanted to sell of things cheap vs move them, I was answering messages all freaking day!

That’s good to hear. U may want to consider changing the rear seal before u put it n. The seals are good to roughly 200k but then they start to leak. If u go this rt, then there are several good suppliers such as victor reinz. Get 1 ptfe lined. They cost a few bucks more but are better quality.
