LS Engine Swap

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 Lakeside Certified Auto at 440-946-0076 to get started with your LS engine swap.

At Lakeside Certified Auto, we specialize in turnkey engines such as the LS3, LS7, LQ9 and LSX series. The mechanics at Lakeside Certified Auto 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 Lakeside Certified Auto 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 Lakeside Certified Auto 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 Lakeside Certified Auto 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

  • This was my first time going to this repair shop and I WILL ALWAYS go back! My heat was not working and I had 2 different estimates from other shops who quoted me at $950-$1,000 to replace my heater and it didn't sound right to me so I brought it here and the guys called me a few hours after dropping it off and said nothing is wrong with my heater, someone had UNPLUGGED something to keep my heat from working. It goes to show how dishonest other shops really are that they lied to me but Lakeside Auto was honest with me and saved me so much unnecessary money. They could have lied to get more $ but they don't do business that way and I appreciate them so much! the trouble I was put in with no heat for 2 weeks with my baby was horrid and im so thankful to have found an honest shop!!

  • This is my "go to" place for repairs. I break down in the morning, get towed to their building and left before end of day!

  • If I could rate them higher, I would! Had my car at Mentor Nissan over 3 days, and they weren't able to find out what was wrong with it (I drive a Nissan Altima). Took my car over to Lakeside, and within 12 hours I knew exactly what was wrong with my car, and it would only cost me a FRACTION of what Mentor Nissan quoted me. Fast, Reliable, Professional, and Very Friendly!

  • I needed a specific repair done that the dealership quoted at $1800. Lakeside originally quoted $1600 but they promised to do some research and came back to me with an $800 quote. They did a good job on the fix and even gave me a car to use- no extra charge- while they worked on my car.
