LS engine swaps show up in everything from vintage Chevy V-8 applications to Porsche 911s and more. While those first-gen Chevy V-8 fitments are the easiest, Speedway Motors’ Chevy LS Mock Up Engine Swap Dummy Block Kit makes it even easier to confirm driveline, engine placement for clearance issues, custom header fabrication, and more. At 18 pounds for the short-block and 35 for the long-block, this LS mock-up block can be lifted in and out of the vehicle by one person with no engine hoist necessary.
