Xander Performance 2013 frs lsx swap

Hey guys. I have had this car for quite awhile and have gone through a few phases with the car. I bought the car and kept it relatively stock, engine wise as I already planned to ls swap it from the get go. Here is how the car looked after I installed air ride and wheels








I then decided to be the first one to swap the new 86 bumper on the 13' frs. Too bad I waited this long to post it. I used all oem parts and made appropriate harnesses for fogs and also made head lights 100% plug and play including the led bar utilizing factory plug.










I then was hit with the black plague with spinning a rod bearing at 62k.







So then you may ask, well now what do you do? Well for me, I think business like and I rebuild the engine so that I can sell it as a fresh running engine to add funds to the build.





Little bit of quality control here, but I got it fixed with a new set








Here are some of the LS parts coming in.
-Built F-Body T56
-LS6 engine block and 243 Cylinder heads
-Wiseco pistons
-Scat rods
-ARP main studs
-ARP Head studs
-BTR Stage IV Cam
-Mantic twin disk clutch
-LS2 Throttle body
-LS2 intake for now
-Sikky Mounting solution
-Hooker Blackheart LS2 Exhaust manifolds














Alright lets see some pictures of the engine and trans installed in the car.













SIKKY steel driveshaft






Also went with a different Tilton clutch master to give me a little more room.

I'm having issues with it loading some of my pictures. Doesn't want to upload all of them so I may have to upload to facebook or something and then link them here. :/

Nice looks like your using the sikky swap kit. I have been wanting to see a swap with this kit. Interested to see engine, and transmission location compared to the other kits out. It looks like a good product produced by a good company with advanced tools to get it just about perfect.

Got some more pictures posted. Ran into some issues with trans tunnel issues. Had to shave some tabs off of the trans. Shifter spot seems pretty good. I'm going to see if I can get an MGW shifter located at the 6 oclock position. I also have another solution for the hydraulic side of things. More pictures to come!

Honestly I have sold the air ride setup and have gone with fortune auto coils.

That's what I was thinking but James at sikky told me that some of these trans have a thick boot that's part of the deal back there.

Interesting. Mine doesn't stick that far out and I am 95% sure I am still getting a vibration because if my driveshaft not fitting far enough on. Now it has me questioning if my trans really is bad
