    This is beautiful. I'll be looking at this more in depth once I get home.

    I got some questions about lifting the body since I'm about to do it to my car.

    Are the A/C controls still vacuum actuated? and how did you lift the body without a lift? I'm thinking of using bottle jacks.

    Very impressive Josh! Just curious, how much was invested into this LS Swap from start to finish?

    Also, that is absolutely the electrical compartment I've seen in a DeLorean

    When I did my LS swap, I ended up spending about $13,000.

    Wow, thanks for sharing the write up and pictures! This is going to be a dumb question, is this, or a similar type of engine, just as "easily" feasible with an automatic transmission or can you not really mix match motors with different brands of automatic trannies?

    Automatic transmissions are MUCH larger than manuals. As it is, there is barely enough room for manuals in the DMC's frame when you figure in the repositioning of the gearboxes for the swap.

    And you have to find one on a rear engine car unless you want many reverse gears and one forward.
