  1. For Sale
    Hey all, Over the last few years I have been building up the parts to do a V8 swap in my 2009 4-cylinder Colorado. I had almost everything together when my truck got totaled. Life has gotten busy, I bought a house, got engaged, and I just can't bring myself to buy another Colorado and complete...
  2. Engine Swaps
    So, this is a word of warning based on my experience, more of a rant really... In CA, you can only put in an engine originally sold for/in CA controlled vehicles. We all kind of know that. If you take say... an LH6. And move (or buy from dealer...) all of the CA cats, manifolds, ECU, etc. And...

  4. V8 Engine & Drivetrain
    Hi all, I am doing a V8 swap in my 2009 Colorado and have hit a snag. I am swapping a 2009 2.9L I4 LLV for a 2009 5.3L V8 LH8. I also got my hands on a second trans, a 2009 4L60E from a 4/5 cylinder. I had a transmission shop rebuild it and convert it to an 8 cylinder trans. Some months later...
  5. Engine Swaps
    Hey there, new guy here. I've been reading about V8 swaps for a while and finally decided to take a crack at one. To make it easier on myself, I waited until I could find an LH8 so that I could have the most direct swap possible. Has anyone done this exact swap before? LLV to LH8? Any pro-tips...

  7. V8 Engine & Drivetrain
    on my 09 5.3 Colorado, I was surprised to see there isn't one serpentine belt like most GM vehicles have these days. I have not looked close (without taking everything apart so I can see whassup) but I don't see a tensioner on either of the two belts (AC appears to have it's own belt) Anybody...

    Hi guys I'm new to the nation but have had 3 different S10's with V8's, and have been wanting a sport zq8 since they were made. I picked up a 2009 EXT CAB ZQ8 5.3 a few months ago. my question is does anyone know how many different engine covers there were for the year. mine has the vortec...

  14. V8 Engine & Drivetrain
    Ever since a saw a pic of ahelm3's 2009 LH8 engine I've been curious about the air flow indicator on his truck and why my 2009 LH8 doesn't have one. @ahelm3 Well, from what I can tell GM had these air flow indicators on the early LH8 motors (2008-2009) and then sometime mid-year of 2009 they...
