If you’re looking for an LS/LT engine for your project car, the salvage yard is an excellent place to start. Finding a high-mileage powerplant can usually be accomplished. While most auto recyclers offer a warranty of some sort, these engines will not be a plug-n-play solution for your hot rod. If you’re not the do-it-yourself type, Speartech provides another solution for your swap needs with its powertrain packages.
Known for LS and LT swap harnesses, Speartech has taken the swap idea one step further, matching up GM crate engines with its existing products, creating turn-key combinations. The company offers packages that include the LS3, LT1, LT4, and LT5 engines. While the LS3’s will come with the 6L80 transmission, the GEN V LT1 engines can be paired with a 6L80, 8l90, or a 10L80. The Gen V LT4 mills will come with an 8l90 or 10l80, and the GEN V LT5 will have a 10l80 attached.
Speartech states, “All packages are brand new and include all sensors, programmed computer modules, throttle pedal, and front O2 sensors. Our engine packages include Speartech engine/transmission control system, built entirely on your engine for a precise fit, and we test run each one upon completion to ensure everything works perfectly.”
Since most LT OE accessories drives won’t work with engine swaps, Speartech even goes the extra mile and will install an accessory drive that will. They offer quality drives from Billet Specialties, Drive Junky, Holley, or OEM (LS3 packages only).
If you just need an engine, check out your local salvage yard. If you’re looking for a complete powertrain package that is completely turn-key and trouble-free, give Speartech a call. They will take all of the guesswork out of your swap, delivering the perfect combination that will start up the first time.
