LS Engine Swap

LS Engine Swap, Arlington, VA

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 Jim's Automotive at 703-931-9431 to get started with your LS engine swap.

At Jim's Automotive, we specialize in turnkey engines such as the LS3, LS7, LQ9 and LSX series. The mechanics at Jim's Automotive 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 Jim's Automotive 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 Jim's Automotive 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 Jim's Automotive often recommends updating these important parts and systems.

  • Transmissions
  • Flex plates
  • Wiring and computer systems
  • Oil pans
  • Steam tubes
  • Gauges
  • Fuel systems
  • Exhaust systems
  • Carburetor conversions

TESTIMONIALS

Wish I'd found Jim's Automotive years ago. Richard took the time to discuss my car's rough idle problem in great detail with me over the phone! THAT is the key to a relationship with a trusted mechanic. I learned about my vehicle in an honest way and was treated with kindness and respect. Thank you, Richard!

My husband and I brought in our Chevy Equinox in late March. We exchanged emails with Richard and he was very quick to get back to us and schedule an appointment. Our car was serviced the morning we dropped it off and we were able to pick it up by mid-afternoon. We knew that the work was expensive and that the required services were unavoidable. When comparing prices, we felt very comfortable with Jim's Automotive. Richard and Jim (not the namesake) explained everything in vivid detail, asked if we were comfortable with the charges and even showed us the rusty parts which were replaced. Having relocated to the area, we feel very fortunate to have found a automotive shop that we can trust. Thank you, Jim's, for a very positive and easy-going experience.

So friendly, honest and fast!!! My Elantra didn't pass inspection at the dealership and they were going to charge me over $900 for the exhaust. That was more than I had to spend in a 7 year old car all at once. I called Jim's and was offered an appointment the next day. They looked at it, told us it would be around $650 to fix it and possibly a few days to find the part. I don't know where they found the part but my car was fixed the next day and it was only $600. What a great experience:) I will only take my car here from now on!!!

Have had my vehicle in a couple times and have been very pleased with the service provided. No hidden costs or shady extras. Straight forward and helpful. I wish there were more shops with the integrity of Rich, Danny and Jim.
