I have one big swap lined up for the winter at this point (injected 5.3/4l60 in the cleanest 2wd blazer i have seen), and I am looking for one more....

With that being said...you guys are all pretty familiar with my fabrication, attention to detail and overall abbility. I am a straight shooter, no bull shit to deal with.

I am willing to take on just about any type of project you have, but I enjoy swaps and things of that nature. If you need help sourcing a powerplant, I have a lot of different connections (pricing warranty and etc). The more unique the better.

If you are interested in having me do your whole project, just help out....or anywhere in between, contact me so we can work out the details pricing and etc. Payments are fine for members for the most part, but again....contact me for more details. I am very fair, accomodating and reasonable.

I don't have a fancy neon sign. I don't have a 1-800 number.....but if you wan't some bad-ass work done....let me know.

Good luck getting it to quit. Those motors are pretty stout themselves! lol

Maybe I should say fuck it and drop in a crate motor.

Stop it Justin... you don't need anymore projects...

That said, if anyone DOES need a swap. I've seen his work in person, and he's worked on my car before. He doesn't mess around. Arrow

Currently @164k without a tick, and original clutch!Honestly, best car I have ever owned. 25k miles so far and all Ive had to do besides oil changes was a water pump, which was really easy to do. That being said, of I ever blow the head gasket(it's weak point), it will probably get a 5.3 and t-56

...another thing I have been considering, is purchasing a few motors (5.3/ 6.0) and converting the harness to basically be a 3-5 wire hook-up. I would change a few gaskets, plugs, and tune the pcm to eliminate vats and etc. Basically you would be buying a "used" crate long-block drop in with harness and pcm.

The short answer....yes.

I think I could have the long block setup for the customer to drop the motor right in. Intake manifold, and accessories could be added by the customer, but I would have the run stand setup at my place so one could come listen to the motor first.

FYI: if you are good with wiring, I paid $950 for a plug and play harness plus supplying my original harness, so there is money in that, especially for guys like myself who "could" do it, but would rather not.

Wow...no kidding. Thats way off from where I thought they were at. I was under the impression a harness was roughly 500-600.

A basic harness is about $500ish, mine is 100% plug-n-play, harness includes all under hood wiring and retains the factory firewall plug. It's top notch, hides well and all LS wiring is new wires and factory plugs.

I could have done it myself, it's well within my capacity, but it would have taken several days of hair-pulling and it would have never came out as nice.

Gotcha....I hear that.
(I deal with wiring/ electrical daily as I am one of 3 Electronics technicians for the local transit authority. I can absolutely relate to the hair-pulling tedious work associated. ).

I actually want to integrate a complete dash harness and cluster from a 2008 Silverado I recently tracked down. I am thinking of taking a much more modern approach on my build haha.

1. I love this idea, it'll be good for you! Arrow

2. DIBS on the old cluster if you mean you're putting this Silverado one into the caprice! bounce

I'm with you doug, i'd rather spend the $500 and avoid the hassle of it all. I'm going with the Howell EFI harness, its a bit more, but they do some nice work.

Thanks to the guys who have inquired so far.

If business picks up and I can extend the offer, I would be willing to take on smaller jobs outside the realm of entire builds. Just ask....worst I can say is no.
