Going with an LS swap on my '89 Formula 350. my L98 would be perfect for someone (living in or near Washington State) who wants to upgrade to an L98 or upgrade an existing L98 as much of the upgrading has already been done. and again, this motor has only 7k on it - its barely broken in.
this engine was rebuilt in 2011. it has had no mechanical issues, only a few intermittent tuning issues in that time. it has not been down for maintenance or anything like that. it has such low miles because I don't drive the car every day, or in marginal weather, plus I have other ponies in my stable. in 6 years, this motor has not leaked a single drop of oil. it still appears as new. I am wanting to go ahead and start selling parts (this motor, my 700R4, ['98-02 SS hood, hatch of donor car] to fund my LS swap. figured I'd give TGO first crack at it. would prefer to sell the motor as a whole. here's what you'd be getting: Bottom End L98 Block - original bore (29k miles on car at time of rebuild) Scat forged connecting rods/ARP waveloc bolts Hypereutectic pistons 9.3:1 cr $450 Fluidampr high volume oil pump Top End GM Performance "Fast Burn" aluminum Vortec heads ZZ4 cam Edelbrock Vortec lower intake AS&M Large tube runners ported plenum 1.5 Ratio roller rockers Peripherals Holley adjustable fuel pressure regulator Accel 24lb injectors Dyno Don ceramic headers (unless they'll work on 243 LS heads - doubtful) brand new spark plugs brand new ceramic boot spark plug wires valve covers, plenum, Corvette aluminum plenum extension are powder coated flat black - AS&M runners are powder coated black chrome.
I am probably forgetting a quite a few things. feel free to ask questions if you're interested. I have a whole book of receipts for everything.
I think $4,500 is a reasonable asking price. feel free to ask me how I arrived at that. above is a picture. the engine is still in the car. below is a video shot a couple of weeks ago of the car running.
