  • L67 F-bird

    :D Few pics of my setup. Going in the car tomorrow. Hope it runs and doesnt hit anything.

    And yes its possible, just takes a crap load of work. Been at it for a few months.

    About how much did this cost you? and did you do all the work yourself?

      I take it that the engine itself is L67?

      Definately looking forward to your build.

        Its not done yet, but its cheap. Got the motor for $350, welded the supercharger for $125, probably $350 for gaskets, plug wires and stuff like that and maybe $300 for micelanous fittings, hoses, lines ect. So $1200 for the entire swap is realistic. And I might sound high on the gasket and fittings mark, its probably under $1000 if I would seriously look at it. Could do it for $500 if you could sell your L36 and all the extra parts off a L67 you dont need.

        Dad and I have done all the work minus the supercharger welding. Guy that did it is a artist with a TIG. :bowdown: He said the tstat neck was hard the hardest casting he's ever welded and looked ugly but looks great. There was 1/4" gaps between the supercharger and neck and he filled it great with one bead.

        Yes, this is a direct takeout L67. The L36 had a hole in the block from a spat rod, so I found the L67 and swapped the accesories over, motor mounts and put the 4L60E on. Its using a stock L36 PCM so I gotta get a L67 tune burned on.

        I was conservative and didnt go crazy and put other stuff like ported heads or a cam. I want this thing to start the first time I turn the key. Unlikely but hey, I can dream. ;)

              Yes, I left out a ton of the little stuff you have to do. Theres a few days of just little stuff. Gotta pull the motor to change the thermostat!

              Its not as hard as you would think as long as you don't get lost and stay at it. If you go at it and have a plan it can be done. Don't knock it till ya try it! :)

              Yes, motor is all stock. Coulda put a cam in but I don't want to do to much at one time. In projects like this people get lost. Plus as soon as I pull the cam id want to rehone the cylinder bored, port the heads, put in new bearings ect. Easiest just to drop it in stock and make sure it runs before I start changing things. Only thing I did was change the intake manifold gaskets and drained the deathcool while I was at it.

                You should really reduce the amount of rubber fuel line in the engine bay!

                  I would like to do this swap on my DD if the engine ever dies.

                      Motors in. Its tight but it fits. Im nothings hooked up for wiring or hoses but its getting there.

                      And yeah, theres rubber fuel line, its new, its fuel injection safe, it isnt going to be there forever and if GM used plastic lines, I feel rubber is OK for what Im doing.

                      Im going to work on it a bit this week and maybe have it running by later this week.

                            Very nice. I wish GM made this another option for the V6.

                            So are you using the stock wire harness then along with the stock PCM?

                            You should put it up on Utube.

                            Good luck on the start up.

                              You will fail a safety at the track though with that much rubber fuel line :( might not see it though. GM only uses nylon line to a certain point in the engine bay.

                              Looks good in there though!
