Been lurking for a few years, but finally getting more active on the forum, and thought I would share my project. About a year ago, I bought a '73 RS from a fellow forum member sight unseen, and then proceeded to ship it across the country. Tinkered around with it a bit over the winter months, but for the most part, kept it as is. The car had a solid platform...427 BBC, 4L80 by Jake, Ford 9 inch. But it was setup to go racing, and I find myself on the street 95% of the time. Carb didn't have a choke, so cold starting it took a bit of finesse...the torque converter had something like a 3600 stall...manual brakes. Car ran like a champ, but just not ideal for city driving. So then I started getting ideas. I landed on an LS swap first. The thought of modern fuel injection, and an all aluminum block were the main attractants. Ordered a new LS376/480 from my local GM dealer. Good for 495hp, I figured that was a good starting point for now. Boost can come later! As it stands right now, the block is still sitting in the cardboard box it came in! Chatting back and forth with Keith at Custom Works Performance, he convinced me that if I was doing an LS swap, that I should probably do the suspension. So ordered his 2G kit, which in my opinion, delivers some of the best bang for your buck. Upgraded the lower control arms and a few other bits while I was at it. Haven't got around to installing anything yet, but did manage to yank the accessories, motor and trans. The exterior paint could use a refresh, but that's a 2020 project. And seeing that I have no interest in yanking the motor and front clip off again in a years time, I thought a quick shot of black on the subframe and firewall would freshen things up. Once I get all of Keith's suspension parts in, it should pop nicely against the fresh black paint. The plan was to re-use the 4L80 with the LS3. But, as things go, I got carried away and ordered a new Tremec T56 Magnum. More pics to follow as the build unfolds. Thanks to everyone who's provided input and guidance. The little details are sometimes the hardest to figure out on your own, but having this site as a resource has likely saved me a boat load of time and money.
