L28et swap recap/update pt 1

I left a lot of spaces in my last post about my l28et swap . So I’m going to dedicate these next couple of posts recapping what I did. Fortunately I captured some of it in pictures.

pt1: new engine prep work



Like anything from craigslist, I was skeptical at exactly what I had picked up but it was a complete swap for a great price. Tearing the engine down I found a great engine that must have just recently been rebuilt and had some mods for leg room in the future. All it needed was a little cleaning up, adjustment…and of course installation. On a stand:


Clean Cycle: dirt on the carboard.

Opened Her up to a surprisingly clean sight.


Intake ports!


Bottom End


Crank Close up


Oil Pan after cleaning

And thats it for the first part stay tuned for more!
