Holy shit. That place is 40 minutes from here. I should drop by at some point. :lol:

I wish I had enough money to take two perfectly good, fairly new (if not brand new) cars and just tear them apart.

Is there anything people don't put a corvette motor in anymore?
I can appreciate the effort, don't get me wrong and I'm sure the thing is a beast,  but it's been done so much it's kinda ...played out?
You cain't buy it that way...

I just read the rest of the article and realize he didn't tear down a Z06 to use its engine. :lol: That makes more sense.

Maybe.. But it's an easy engine to work with, is relatively light, and makes lots of horsepower and torque. At least it's not a 2JZ dyno queen...

LS swaps are really easy, so yeah, they are in everything. Not my cup of tea personally, but a cool car none the less. The options to fit things in that bay are kind of slim without some really serious mods. So yeah a 2JZ wouldn't have worked.

This is one monster swap i just can't get behind.

The engine it came with is rock solid and would do so well with some mods.

I don't care if it's played out, I just wish somebody would fucking make engine overs to go on the damned things that DON'T say Corvette.

They definitely exist. The easiest solution would just be to remove them though. Although you think if they spend this much money on the car, they would have spent a little more to get some custom covers that say "BRZ06".

Yeah, but just taking them off would help with cooling.

I've seen plenty of mouse nests built under the engine covers on Corvettes in the last 5 years to know that if I ever owned a Vette, it would be sans-engine cover (unless I drove it daily).

Good point. I think they were just looking for something catchy.

2JZ has already been done (and lets face it, 2J into anything is just as played out as LS engine swaps.. well atleast in the rest of the world)

LS engines are cheap, reliable and make decent power without much work.

The name of the game is going as fast as you can for the budget you have to work with (and not blowing shit up), so LS swaps are basically the ultimate anti-ricing.
