Topcats Racing have two more Chevy LS engine conversions underway, which indicates that owners understand just why this conversion makes so much sense, from both a cost and performance perspective.
Included in the conversion is a brand new ‘crate’ LS engine with custom exhaust headers coupled to an upgraded brand new TKO600 gearbox to handle the increase in power. A new clutch, flywheel and starter motor round up the package.
The major advantage over an upgrade of the original engine is that the cost of the new engine can potentially be offset against the sale of the original engine and gearbox. Once the conversion is complete, owners will be able to reduce their maintenance costs dramatically over the duration of ownership and will allow drivers to enjoy their cars to the full without the limitations and stress of engine reliability and maintenance.
