The installation of a General Motors LS-V8 engine is particularly widespread in the tuning scene. You get the impression that nowadays more modern 5,3 liter LC9 or 6,2 liter LS3-V8 engines are built into old classics than original engines. This type of is understandable Motorswap but yes. A modern V8 in a classic is a "relatively" simple and inexpensive way to get additional power without having to miss the characteristic V8 note of typical American engines. If a vehicle is to be more drivable, more efficient and run reliably, there is almost no avoiding such an exchange. Fortunately, there are still people who don't build an LS-V8, but rely on other engines.
soon with 4L60E four-speed automatic
For example Johnny Teunissen. He restored a chic 1967 Pontiac Tempest and donated him a 458 cubic inch V8 from an old Pontiac Trans-Am from the 1970s. With a special camshaft and 6X-8 cylinder head, the engine was supposed to produce approximately 400 HP, which is more than a standard yield. Coupled to the new engine is a Turbo 400 three-speed automatic, which Johnny would like to exchange for a 4L60E four-speed automatic in the near future. Then shift paddles are even used. A high-performance sports brake system from Wilwood is already installed, an Airride air suspension and also a set of new alloy wheels and a cool billet steering wheel are already included. The best thing to do is to listen to what Teunissen has to say about the Pontiac Tempest from 1967 in the following video.
