The puny 2.0L Mitsu motor is OUT and on the floor..
The new Monte Carlo's/Impala SS's come with a 303hp FWD LS4 engine thats derived off the LSx Series motors.. I managed to score one with a transmission and am going to drop it in my beater. This thing is gonna fly, and should be done sooner than the Ty since its simpler !!!! Overall the LS4 motor with Auto Trans is only about 2" longer tha the DSM setup when mounted transversely..
The question is.. Should I throw a cam at it before I drop it in ? Future plans are to hit it with a 150 shot and some EFILive tuning (since I already own EFILive) all while scoring 30+ mpg..
