looking to do a LS swap in a 67

I'm looking to do a LS swap in a 67 that I have. Looking for suggestions for the best LS and trans and the necessary hardware to do the swap. Any links anyone has where I can figure this out would be appreciated.

progress has little to do with speed, but lots to do with direction

Re: looking to do a LS swap in a 67

There's several build threads on here, LS1Tech, etc. I'm doing a '67 LS swap (plus several other mods) currently so you can take a look at my build thread. As far as engine/trans it depends on what you want to accomplish. The trans selection will drive whether or not you'll have to modify the tunnel (i.e. T56, 6L80, etc - need to expand the tunnel vs. TKO600, 4L80, etc - minimal if any tunnel mods). The holley mounts/headers/oil pan fit really nice.

Also are you going to run fuel injection or carb? If fuel injection then you need to deal with the fuel system and ECM.

I hope this helps

CPP has nice adjustable motor mounts that worked out great also found that Doug’s headers are a good fit (collecters are a little close to floor boards) stroked LS3 / 4L70e

Roger, the "best" LS and trans will be determined by your budget, driving style, HP goals, and plans with the car.

You could spend $20K+ on an engine, then follow it up with a capable trans, or yank something out of a junkyard on a shoestring budget and make it work.

You have a ballpark budget? How will you be driving the car? Know what HP level you want to end up with?

Using an aluminum block LS will take significant weight off the front end...

Checking to see if you have had any progress. I myself am looking to put an LS in my 71 Chevelle. So much info to intake.


Question for the guys.
I am on a cheaper budget. Local Salvage yard has LS truck motors for cheep complete with everything i.e. manifolds, front assembly's and ECM. So my ask is what recommendations on which LS version example 5.3L with opt LMG, LQ9, L9H. What is the best recommendation for these swaps. I am afraid 6.0's are a bit out of the price range with all the other items that has to be purchased for the project.


Not looking to burn up the streets here but make the velle a reliable cruzer.

Automatic or manual?
To keep it cheap and easy I would still go with a Gen III engine, a 4.8L LR4 or a 5.3L LM7. Then you don't have to deal with VVT, DoD, etc. The Holley swap kit is probably the easiest way to go for mounts and oil pan.

Re: looking to do a LS swap in a 67

I used all Holley parts to swap a 6.0L LS into my 68 Camaro.

The engine mounts are critical; the lower you can get the engine helps avoid cutting the trans tunnel.

Also setting the engine toward the front also helps.

Re: looking to do a LS swap in a 67

I just finished this 67 Chevelle 300 Deluxe. 2002 5.3 with Muncie 4 speed. I am working on a 69 El Camino with a 2004 GTO LS1/4L65E. I also did LS1/4L60E swaps in a 64 Tempest(which I still own) and a 65 Lemans. The 65 Lemans I sold recently. I love doing these swaps!! I would be happy to answer questions. I have a list of the parts I used in the 65 Lemans swap. All 66 to 72 A bodys are going to be pretty much the same.

Here are the 64 Tempest and 65 Lemans. The 64 has A/C and the 69 El Camino is going to have A/C.
