DROPPING The LS2 Into My 1967 Camaro RS *Successfully This Time*

  Դիտումներ 99,598


4 ամիս առաջ

I bought a 67 Camaro RS for only $6,500 and I'm taking it to LS Fest East in only 8 days.
Now that the Powerglide transmission and the LS2 from J&J Auto Wrecking is ready to go, we're going to try to install it and get everything else ready to go as well. As always, things don't exactly go according to plan. The LS2 is getting the complete Holley EFI treatment and some BRAND NEW HK Wheels as well.

Not sure it matters but if you run gto ls2 or fbody ls1 accessories you wont have to have the alternator up top like that and can run factory length belt aswell. I switched to a 4 pin alternator from an fbody instead of the 2 pin gto alternator but if you were to use the gto alt you will have to notch the subframe slightly. Overall it just looks a lot cleaner. Blue_collar_bastard_222 is my IG if you wanna see what I’m talking about

You know, the advantages of putting in a LS2, from what I can determine, are not worth all the hassle you're going through. I would have just put in a short block chevy, 327 or 350. And those have the option of a throttle body if you want to be rid of carbs. Then it would have fit like a glove. They have plenty of power and torque. So what is the advantage of the LS2?

If you give a JRGO a 67 camaro he'll want a ls2 to go with it, if you give him a ls2 he'll want a rebuilt power glide to go with it, if you give him a rebuilt power glide he'll want new everything to go along with it.

The threat of an EMP has me wanting to go mechanical pre 1974 only thing you got to put in a faraday bag to protect is a new voltage regulator and distributor points system. That way when that new LS motor goes bust because of the computer intricates. I'll be up and running in an hour and a half or sooner

I thought this was supposed to be a plug-and-play installation wrong again I thought by just looking at what you had your motor was too far back to start out with I was right I never had this much problem putting V8 motors in Vegas I mean hell motion Chevrolet even makes a pro big block Vega of course they're professionals we were shade-tree mechanics doing it and never had a problem no been bodies no nothing just the right stuff. I'm feeling very sad for you brother remember only believe half of what you see and none of what you hear cuz it's probably BS. That sucks this always happens when you're trying to get to an event such as LS Fest I hope it happens guys just hang in there.

Got to say I love Hooker Headers back in the day we didn't buy them because we thought they were a little bit too thin but they're probably okay now but I did know of a company that made specialty headers I don't know if they're still in business they are called Herbert Meeks back in the day they built some really good stuff for V8 Vegas which I built a few of when I was just out of high school also I'm pretty sure they did a lot of pinto projects to. Don't want to get off course it was just to mention that their specialty headers were spot on when it came to throwing a V8 in a small spot which is not really what you're doing because it had a V8 in it but who knows they may have made a better header. Any how guys I am loving these videos that is for sure keep up the great work. Stay safe stay well and as always God bless

Why is JRCAMO whining? He didn't figure a worthwhile time schedule to turn a turd camaro into a decent one. Didn't this happen with the Rolls? Why is it he continues to underwhelm on these projects yet he'll spend so much time on a Volvo? I'm glad he experienced the karma payback of failure on this project. You are worried about how clean the headers are when the rest of the crapmaro looks like that?

Over $900 for a radiator. That's insane. Should have been able to have 2.5 custom made at least in a shop in your area for that price. I get wanting to go to the fest,but that much money and then not doing everything right like clean and paint the engine bay doesn't seem worth it.

Why didn't you guys just fix the rear end in the Rolls and take that to LS fest? Seems rather expensive to LS swap another car when the rolls isn't even finished. Everyone has an ls swapped first gen camaro but how many people have an LS swapped Rolls Royce?

2 things: 1. O'Reilly's needs to sponsor you because you spend mad money with them and are in there every 10 minutes. 2. O'Reilly's needs to have the parts delivery guy delivering parts just like they would with any professional shop.

There is this thing called a "welder"! That you can use to "weld" different sized pieces of steel together. You can use this strange tool to fabricate new mounting towers into any shape you need. Too bad you didn't know about this new fangled machine in time, or you could have been done with your engine mounting by now.

I really like this build. That said, I sure hope it's NOT a failure like the Rolls Smoke. Speaking of the Rolls, wouldn't it have been easier to put a rearend in the Rolls and use it for what you built it for instead of building another burnout car???? Just asking because inquiring minds want to know. Cheers
