On my build, my L33 (aluminum block 5.3 high output) cost $1300. I'm going to be in around $4000 for it when I add in the cost of the TH350 build/swap as well.

LM7 - Iron Block/Aluminum Heads
2005, 60K miles, complete drop-out.
All accessories, TAC, pedal, harness, PCM, etc.
$1000

If I was to do it again knowing what I know now, I would say 4K is a reasonable number to complete

Getting a complete drop out, and making sure its all matching is a good start. This stuff nickels and dimes you. Mine was supposed to be a complete drop out but lots of things they pulled from other motors.

Besides the motor, you pay for: mounts, headers, exhaust, wiring, reprogramming, radiator, fuel lines & pump, transmission bits, lots of times driveshafts, other bits.

Bad computer flash Drove it on the trailer and took off without any time to do a test run to check everything out. Got to the Badlands, pulled it off the trailer and she was ok at best when cold, as soon as she got warmed up the idle was all over the place. Took a short run around campground and was missing like crazy and backfiring. Every once in awhile she would catch and I got a slight taste of the power that will be there. Guy at the campground had a scanner, ran a couple codes. po171 and po103. One is a lean code the other MAF. After swapping out the sensor with another like built rig that was eliminated, no vacuum leaks either. Called Jimsperformance, he walked us thru a couple tests with other sensors, all comes back to a bad flash. Jim was as much help as he could be without us having a laptop to communicate with him. We believe it wasnt flashed for drive by cable (motor was originally drive by wire). Not real happy about that because description was all written and sent along. So tomorrow the computer goes back.

We hopped in other rigs and salvaged the weekend, still had a great time despite that and the shitty weather. My kid did her first rock climb in Kevins buggy up about a 7' ledge......made it all worth it.

Glad you got hold of Jim. He's a stand up guy. Actually, although not what you wanted, if everything else seemed right, that's a good sign for the future.

Yea, i left a message on his machine and he rang me back within 10 minutes. Hell of a nice guy, not knocking him, mistakes happen. Just really sucks. Thanks for gettin back with me so quick with his number


All else did seem good. I plan on having it put on a laptop and setup perfect. Make sure everything is reading as it should.

Me too Sean! It will be fine, just yet another setback.

What ya gonna do?


By the way, I have to say, the people on this site rock. I had so many pm's texts and calls about those damn sensors. Also called and picked brains of many from Badlands.....Dale, Jim, Bryce....not to mention all the guys that were at the park racking their brains. Awesome group you are!

You're welcome. Actually you got lucky. I leave my phone in my truck while at home & happened to walk out to get something. It was like within 10 minutes of when you texted me. There are times on the weekend when I don't look at my phone all day.

Make sure he knows which O2 sensors you are using, as apparently, the computer flash needs to know exactly which, and there were may different ones used over the years..
