My New Project...

Home  \  Domestic Cars  \  My New Project...

I've been thinking about starting a project to get off the computer a bit, and see if a mechanic is a good job for me...I've been putting money away for a while now, and figured I should do something that's never been done before, put an LS1 into a 2000 Dodge Caravan...That's right, a Hemi that still runs on gas!! I still don't have an engine, but here's what I got done today:
(Pics are too big, I'll put links)...

The badging was the most important part, and this way, people will know that it's a Corvette :smoke:


So, what do you guys think? :hi:

If anybody wants pics, feel free to ask :thumbs:

LS1 and HEMI are way different engines, but maybe im not getting what you said

It was supposed to be a joke lol...I'd like to do it, but it'd be expensive, and I don't have a clue where to begin :laughing:

Have you found a donor engine?

EDIT: I see not.

If you were going to do it, I'd try to find a 4.0 Northstar from an Aurora or Bonneville rather than an LS1 because those were FWD cars.

step by step now... j/k

damn that idea sparked my interest pretty damn good too:ohcrap: :laughing:
maybe putting a big fat universal fit turbo on the van would be a better start
if you really want a van like that lol

Obviously you don't have a clue if you think an LS1 and a Hemi are anything alike and were you trying to call the Hemi a diesel engine? WTF?




No friend, YOU are the failure...get a life aside from your daily routine of post-whoring and varying degrees of douche-bagery.

Erm, it was supposed to be jokw, right? So I'm guessing he knows that a HEMI isn't a diesel engine! :thumbs: Hey, atleast he put the pictures into links as they were quite large lol

It was a joke...the Caravan doesn't have a Hemi, the LS1 isn't a Hemi, there is no diesel Hemi. Do you honestly think that I would put a GM badge on a Dodge Caravan and call it an LS1 Hemi Caravan? :banghead:

Well, you're dumb enough...so yes, I thought you were serious. Good way to get your post count up douche.
