Nothing like the sound of a cammed V8 in the world. Pure music.
Kudos on the great job!

How much did the total conversion cost and how long did it take you?

I've been wanting to do a Chevy swap into my TJ for a while. I have two different 350's but decided I wanted a newer EFI LS motor due to emissions. I've been looking into the LS2, LS3, and 5.3L vortecs.

The cluster you have looks pretty sweet by the way.

But the E-ROD LS3 engines are a bit more pricey due to extra emissions parts; bank 1&2 cat converters etc.
