Gen V L83 Truck Engine Swap

More and more L83/L86 truck engines are available now from wrecking yards at reasonable prices, some including the 6 speed 6L80E transmission. These are great solutions for drive-train swaps because they are plentiful, powerful, priced far less than the LS3 and Gen V LT1 takeouts and come complete with everything you need.  ICT Billet has just released brackets that allow you to easily add hydraulic power steering to these engines.  Reference my installation guide for vendors who provide reflashed ECUs.

“I’ve always liked the immediate power delivery that comes with supercharging, and the LT4 is a great engine in that regard, with a broad powerband and tremendous low-end punch,” says Stielow. “Considering the technology and performance wrapped up in the crate engine, it would be virtually impossible to build something comparable from the ground up, making it a cost-effective and time-saving choice.”
