goodluck... I'd suggest buying the haynes manual for the diagrams. I hope you have good amount of exp with cars cause thats probably going to need alot of custom work.

Hey stoon_cobalt, if your on this website to bash peoples threads than just get off, if your here to help then place a comment. If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything. So what let him do what he wants, to each there own.

As for this topic I would get the haynes manual. Custom work is a must for this application. Good luck with it, include pics and such and keep us posted.

You could remove the spare tire and jack, anything you don't need in your car, clothing etc. If you are going to the drag strip it really easy on what to do, having as little fuel in your car as possible and taking out the spare tire and such. Getting rid of any unneeded parts under the hood I.E. Plastic engine cover crap. get an intake lighter and, you could also get a carbon fiber hood, lighter rims. etc. anything helps

:huh: I don't.. You could turbo the Ecotec and get more gains out of it for less time, money and effort.. You want to swap motors.. BUY A HONDA!

If youwere going to go through the trouble of swapping an engine, why not do something a little better. I really couldnt see an engne swap being worth it unless you were swapping like an LS1 or something.

like others said, i would just turbo the ***** and save time money and the headaches. And getting anything done with warranty would be gone too.
