Now that's a proper license plate! Most custom plates are terrible but that one is great.

Re: LS swap .. done

Looks fantastic! Looks factory. I like that you had left the original plumbing and location for the Air conditioning. What was involved in doing the swap? Did you have to upgrade the fuel tank? Are you still using the original T5 and rear gear?

Re: LS swap .. done

OP used Redline Automotive in Scarborough for the swap for those asking.

He's more active on Facebook. Join Southern Ontario IROC-Z Owners Club Group for all the info including recent dyno numbers!
