5.3 swap in 86z28
Ive been thinking about swapping an LS1 into my 86 z28 for awhile now, until I found out how cheap I can get a 5.3 for.. Ive seen them on ebay for as low as $380 but I had a few questions. What would be the desired vehicle to get one from?? Some are advertised as "flex fuel" not 100% sure what that is.. I figure the early year 5.3 would be the most simple.. and I believe theyre around 285hp and nearly everything that can go on/in an LS1 can work with these correct? anddd the trucks/suvs that have the 5.3 also have a 4l60e? which should fit just fine into the 86 camaro??

It will be the same mechanical swap (meaning LSX parts) as an LS1.... and the 5.3 is a pretty solid motor, with head studs and 10psi you'd be VERY happy I'm sure.

I was thinking about putting an LS6 cam/intake in/onto it.. Would those parts switch over?? The car is very light I think it'd be pretty quick with around 350hp

so the intake will bolt on if you switch the fuel rails?? I'll post a pic of the car if it works..

yea it's a 305 bored to a 310, has a slightly bigger cam, headers, exhaust and a stall.. I got the car when I was 14, was a project with my dad, he didn't want me to have too much power. haha
