i am about to buy a 1978 280 and i was wondering if an ls2 would fit inside. why not have 400 hp off the bat.

Thanks

probably best to look here. www.hybridz.org. you will find all sorts of engine swaps there

Yes it will IF the 280 in question is an S30 rather than a ZX type.

There are plenty of people who have already done the swap using a kit from www.brokenkitty.com (http://www.brokenkitty.com) also known as John's Cars or JCI.

The actual transplant is a piece of cake, getting the car to handle, stop and behave itself properly takes a bit more thinking about.

My own car is having an 06 GTO motor and T56 installed.
