Why Convert your Porsche to an LS Motor?

Considering an LS engine swap for your Porsche? We're experts in Porsche LS V8 swaps and Porsche manual transmission conversions. Since GM introduced the LS engine in 1997, the world of custom cars has seen lasting change due to the quality of the engine and its ability to improve the function of almost any car that makes the swap.

If your water cooled (or air cooled) Porsche has suffered a catastrophic engine failure and are considering ways to improve the reliability as well as performance enter the ‘LS engine swap’. Since being introduced by GM in ‘97, LS engines have been fitted into just about every chassis due to its ability to improve on said chassis’ original power plant all while increasing reliability, performance, and simultaneously decreasing maint/repair costs. Such a statement rings especially true when held up against the problematic Porsche non-Turbo/non-GT M96/7 engines!

What Is An LS Engine Swap?

An ‘LS engine swap’ is the process of replacing your vehicle’s current engine w/ that of a GM LS series motor. While all motors in the LS series are an all-aluminum block construction and retain the same external dimensions they come in a variety of displacement (i.e. - 5.7L->7.0L) and as a result different horsepower/torque ratings! An ‘LS engine swap’ is a common tactic for improving the reliability and power of whatever vehicle one finds itself in.

Reasons To Consider An LS Engine Swap

LS engines offer a range of benefits over most other options from reliability, performance, and ease of maintenance; there’s also an LS engine to suit just about every application power wise as well as budget. As a result LS engines have become the most popular swap option and despite originating in RWD Camaros and Corvettes one can now find them in Hondas, Mazdas, and now even AWD Porsches!
