This month, however, we’re going to get our little LS engine prepped and the initial bolt-ons installed before its time to mate the engine to the trans and slip her in the ’68. Over the course of the next few months we’ll keep messing with the combo, whether it’s in the truck or not, to give ya’ll a look at what’s possible with today’s technology.

One thing to keep in mind, although we’re using a brand-new crate engine from Chevy Performance, nearly everything we cover can be done on a junkyard GM truck engine for pennies on the dollar, if that’s your thing. The only drawback is that you don’t know what you’re getting when you pull a used engine. But if rebuilding engines is something you enjoy, that would be a great way to put together a stump-pulling Chevy engine that runs like a clock, makes gobs of power, and accepts all the latest and greatest GM and the hot rod aftermarket have to offer.
