6.0 LS Swap

The swap has started.

2000 6.0L LQ4 and 4L80E in to a 2000 XJ. Headers and engine mounts should be here Thursday.

I know there may be better options, however this is a budget build (I have a hard time saying BUDGET on this project) and I got a deal on the engine and tranny. I am taking my time working on it in between customers cars, so this may take some time. I will do my best to make this as clean of a swap as I can.

This is what I started with. (Yes that is a 2wd 4L80E, I will be converting it to 4wd).






Repairing the 3 exhaust manifold bolts.


After new gaskets and some paint.


Trimming the intake.


Waiting on the headers, mounts and oil level sensor plug from Novak.
