NORTH HAMPTON SERVICE CENTER

LS Engine Swap

Don't wait one more day to feel the power of a new GM LS engine. Get the most out of your LS engine whether you prefer a street, off-road, supercharged or stroker assembly. Call the mechanics at North Hampton Service Center at 603-964-5700 to get started with your LS engine swap.

At North Hampton Service Center, we specialize in turnkey engines such as the LS3, LS7, LQ9 and LSX series. The mechanics at North Hampton Service Center will determine what adjustments need to be made to your vehicle to create the perfect fit and maintain original function. We will also recommend the correct frame and motor mounts for your specific car or truck.

LS Engine Swap Cost

GM makes a powerful and affordable engine. Making a LS engine swap convenient and affordable is our highest priority.

First, the mechanics at North Hampton Service Center will help you estimate the cost of your LS engine swap by considering the driving application and your style. LS3 series engine swaps are popular for street applications while the LS7 series is for trucks and off-roading applications. The LS3, released in 08 was the most powerful Corvette engine. The LS7 provides more horsepower for greater towing capacity than the LS3 and is the largest LS engine built by GM Performance.

Leave the Motor Mounts to Us

At North Hampton Service Center we know replacing the frame mounts and motor mount adapter plates are the foundation of a successful GM LS engine swap. Adapter plates bolt onto the engine block and secure it to the cross member. We have adjustable and stock location adapter plates available to create the perfect fit and maximum stability. Most car applications require the LS engine to be moved forward due to firewall clearance issues with the passenger side cylinder head. For GM LS and LSX engines we recommend 1" set back adapter plates to retain the factory transmission cross member and driveshaft distance.

For perfect fit and function North Hampton Service Center often recommends updating these important parts and systems.

  • Transmissions
  • Flex plates
  • Wiring and computer systems

  • Steam tubes
  • Gauges
  • Fuel systems
  • Exhaust systems
  • Carburetor conversions

Vehicle Tips

  • According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
  • The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
  • Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
  • Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
  • Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
  • A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
  • Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
  • Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
  • Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
  • Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
  • Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
  • Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
  • Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
  • Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
  • Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
  • Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
  • Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
  • Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
  • Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
