All I can say is that an LS swap is an adventure! And in my case, was three years of part time work, and looks like quite a lot of years of pure fun now that it's done.............sorta............. I'll get back to ya........

Hello,


Yes, an LS swap is a vivacious (???) adventure under the hood. My crusade with it continues as I begin the hunt for air conditioning while trying to retain the use of my LS air conditioner compressor. A company called "Nostalgic AC" has an adapter that fits the LS compressor that will allow it to fit what will likely need to be custom hoses to the "Classic Air Conditioning" system that will be installed. But it appears that it should work though I need to take a few measurements to be certain. If I can't make this work, the alternative is a likely $2000 expense to replace the front of engine accessory drive assembly.

Its always something with an LS swap.
