    E36 LS Turbo Swap Build Vlog

    Iím so excited to finally do an engine swap and I couldnít think of a better one than an e36LS swap. Iíve been Vlogging it and I want to share the link for everyone to follow. Hereís the link to my channel. Iíll be posting a new video every 2 weeks or so, depending on how fast I can edit.

    Hopefully I can cover some stuff I couldnít find myself when researching the build! Thanks for watching!

    I like your "GMW" label.
    Didn't gap the rings, let us know how that ends up.

    Thanks! My hope is that I can run it rich enough and have good cooling that it won’t get too hot, and that the rings are already worn a little having 140k on them that I won’t blow it up. If I can keep it under 10 psi I think I’ll be ok, but you never know. Fortunately the block is the cheapest thing I can break lol. Stay tuned!

    You could always spray in some water/meth.

    Damn, The word ďvlogĒ gets you that triggered? Lol, I figured videos are much better content than pictures, but Iíll post pics up just for you.


    After pulling the engine out, I noticed someone tried jerry rigging the engine mount and drilled new holes in it, so this subframe was shot. I did find another one easily though.

    Lq4 refresh

    I got this lq4 for $400 with 140k on it, it was in pretty good shape and ran well before pulling. I went with a BTR stage 1 turbo cam and dual valve springs, ls9 head gasket and arp head bolts with ls7 lifters. Brian Tooley racing was very informative and helped me pick out parts based on the turbo I have.
