LS Engine Swap

LS Engine Swap, Louisville, KY

LS Engine Swap

Don't wait one more day to feel the power of a new GM LS engine. Get the most out of your LS engine whether you prefer a street, off-road, supercharged or stroker assembly. Call the mechanics at American Brake Centers Inc. at 502-459-0355 to get started with your LS engine swap.

At American Brake Centers Inc., we specialize in turnkey engines such as the LS3, LS7, LQ9 and LSX series. The mechanics at American Brake Centers Inc. will determine what adjustments need to be made to your vehicle to create the perfect fit and maintain original function. We will also recommend the correct frame and motor mounts for your specific car or truck.

LS Engine Swap Cost

GM makes a powerful and affordable engine. Making a LS engine swap convenient and affordable is our highest priority.

First, the mechanics at American Brake Centers Inc. will help you estimate the cost of your LS engine swap by considering the driving application and your style. LS3 series engine swaps are popular for street applications while the LS7 series is for trucks and off-roading applications. The LS3, released in 08 was the most powerful Corvette engine. The LS7 provides more horsepower for greater towing capacity than the LS3 and is the largest LS engine built by GM Performance.

Leave the Motor Mounts to Us

At American Brake Centers Inc. we know replacing the frame mounts and motor mount adapter plates are the foundation of a successful GM LS engine swap. Adapter plates bolt onto the engine block and secure it to the cross member. We have adjustable and stock location adapter plates available to create the perfect fit and maximum stability. Most car applications require the LS engine to be moved forward due to firewall clearance issues with the passenger side cylinder head. For GM LS and LSX engines we recommend 1" set back adapter plates to retain the factory transmission cross member and driveshaft distance.

For perfect fit and function American Brake Centers Inc. often recommends updating these important parts and systems.

  • Transmissions
  • Flex plates
  • Wiring and computer systems
  • Oil pans
  • Steam tubes
  • Gauges
  • Fuel systems
  • Exhaust systems
  • Carburetor conversions

What Our Customers Are Saying

reviewicon

I can't say enough good things about this place. We've been thru quite an ordeal with a van we bought that looked all pretty from the outside but beneath that hood lurked some pretty hefty neglect. Scott and Mark were so patient and fair to us to get it fixed. We've always been Toyota people. This time we thought... let's try a dodge... good price, lots of room. Well our good price almost doubled. Even after all the money we spent to get it fixed it's still not running great. We decided we're done with it! Trading it on Monday for a Toyota Sienna. I highly recommend American Brake. They are honest and not out to rip you off in any way. That's how a good business succeeds. A+++++ Thank you guys!!

The work at American Brake Center has been excellent. I have 4 cars serviced at American Brake Center. They do great work. Their prices are very competitive with other places. Scott and his crew of mechanics have done great work on all my cars. Scott always lets me know what needs to be done immediately and what is coming down the line in terms of repairs. He has also helped me in buying two cars for my daughters. He and his mechanics inspected the cars and let me know what kind of shape they were in. This was so helpful for me in feeling comfortable in assisting my daughters get good, reliable cars. I would highly recommend this shop for good, honest, and efficient work on any type of car!

I got my brakes and my rotors replaced here, and it was by far a great experience. Often times I feel auto shops like to take advantage of me, but the gentlemen who helped me seemed to honestly care about the well being of my vehicle & not trying to ?pull one over on me.? I will definitely be back for my auto needs.

Over the years you have seen auto brake companies come and go, you've heard the good and bad about them all. We are very fortunate here in Louisville to have the American Brake Centers. Two locations honest, upfront and they are truly men of their word. When it comes to working on and completing the task at hand definitely a five-star business. Thank you Scott to you and your crew from the Davis'es.

Scheduled an appointment the day before and arrived on time, but they were bogged down with work, so I was "worked in" as soon as they could get to me, which caused me to wait in the waiting room much longer than I should have with a pre-scheduled appointment. Service and quality are outstanding-have used them several times before, and will do so again when I need brakes. I do recommend them.

American Brake Center on Preston Highway is one of the best and the most honest places I have ever had a car repaired. I would recommend them to anyone. They are very thorough and explain everything you may need and the prices are reasonable. They also guarantee everything that they have done.

I can't recommend this place enough! Their customer service is top notch and they fixed the issues my truck had. I was visiting Louisville when my truck broke down. I called American Brake Center and they were very helpful and understanding of the situation. Scott did a great job at making me understand how and why my truck wasn't working properly and how to fix it. I will definitely use them again in the future!

Scott and the guys at American Brake are awesome. I have been going there for a few years now and they do great work and are honest. That's what keeps me going back!

This guy took a car that was bordering street legality and not only made it work like new, but also did so at an extremely fair price. When other shops were quoting thousands of dollars, he said $600. When the repair needed a component that he hadn't foreseen to tell me about, he added it for only the cost of the part, not adding the cost of labor. This shop is worth your time, money, and trust.

reviewicon

They are very helpful and they replaced my brakes quickly. He even changed my oil for free. I would highly recommend this place for both the price and the quality of service.

reviewicon

Great service and trustworthy. I've used them for nearly 20 years with no issues.

reviewicon

Very pleased with the service and price. Scott, Mark, and Tom were all very knowledgeable. They fixed the problem I had, and didn't try to sell me other stuff that I didn't need. I would definitely recommend them!

reviewicon

It's nice to take your vehicle here and know that they aren't going to sell you unneeded parts or services. They perform honest, affordable work, in a timely manner. They will continue to receive my business.

reviewicon

Have dealt with them several times, each time they have done honest an excellent work. Highly recommend.

reviewicon

Always thorough timely service with reasonable rates. And Bill is the best!

reviewicon

Been using this place for many years now, have never been disappointed. Great mechanics who always do honest work. Would recommend to anyone, call and set up appointment with Scott. The only place I trust to work on my vehicles!

reviewicon

Bill and his crew go above and beyond to get it right. Been a customer for years and will keep going back. Service they way you expect it to be! Highly recommended.

reviewicon

Extremely helpful and definitely the most affordable compared to other quotes I got before using their services. Total was hundreds less than expected and car is running perfectly!

reviewicon

Being a female and not knowing much about car mechanics, it is so important for me to be assured that my car is in good hands with mechanics I trust. The guys are never pushing and always call me before any work is done to my vehicle and let me know how much it will cost and what is being done. I highly recommend American Brake on Bashford Ave. Ct. Great bunch of guys!
