Talking Hey guys/gals lookin at buying a LB7 crate motor and alli trans, wat to look out for?

well i started a thread in the parking lot about buying an h1 and then doing a motor swap, and have decided on getting an LB7 to put in there.

now i just need to know what to look out for.

and how are these motors holding up when you start pumping them?

someone said to get LLY rods or something like that to put in the LB7 but other than that the LB7 is best of the D-max's.

thnx

Looks like you got your answer in your Parking Lot thread. Merchant can/will do right by you.
