Appreciate you taking the time though Jason coming on here......driving this car daily to work since the weather is good.....want you to know this thing is a complete RIOT! to drive and performs absolutely flawlessly.....OEM like.....getting to speed is effortless.....just short shifting and not wringing it out can get me in trouble with Johnny Law LOL!........I can only assume business questions can't be answered do to you guys not buying a sponsorship with the site.....same reason they won't put our car in the engine swap conversion sticky on top of page......their loss because its probably one of the best....if not the best because its designed for any body handy with tools and can be done without serious modification....99% bolt in.

Right,
I know they will say "We want only Swaps that are linked within this forum."

Well, this thread does has outside forum links.
That said Even if the other forum goes offline,
there are pages of info and pics left right here
ON THIS FORUM, IN THIS THREAD.

To top it off on that thread,▼
The Frickin car That is LS swapped in the compilation has 1 damn (youtube hosted) video in 1 post!
Yet somehow, this thread wont cut it

Yah I don't get it.....Vorschlag is a world wide camber plate manufacturor/distributor ....and innovative shop in many other areas....like 150 plus BMW E36 swap kits sold and on track...all their builds on their site remain a perminant fixture..and I challenge anyone to show me builds better documented....they are not goin:g anywhere and are expanding.I'm not sponsored by them by any means....just a guy....I don't get it and haven't been given a acceptable explanation from the mods........ Isn't this site for the betterment of the community?.......we now have a plug and play can bus solution to be sold publically.....doubt I will post it here because I'm not legit enough ?.....later!

This thread and vorschlag in my opinion is very valuable to this fourm.its the main reason I joined.i always loved the frs/BRZ,the style and the feel of them are great but they are extremely underpowered and a FI fa20 in my opinion is not a reliable source of power,I have done a few LS1/LS2 swaps(in older vehicles) and absolutely love the engines so I started researching about putting one in a frs,when I come across this thread and vorschlag I decided to join and have followed the thread at least once a day ever sence..I bought a frs just for this swap,and built my ls1 to mimic cf6mech's all because of this thread and vorschlag's build fourm,I greatly appreciate what cf6mech and vorschlag have done with their posts/time/and effort and I will 100% be buying this kit to save me a bunch of time/aggravation and money with a pretty much "bolt in kit". @cf6mech if you are unable to release any new information on this thread about the progression of this kit/kits as they become available,can I pm you my email and you shoot me a email when something new comes up?i would greatly appreciate it..thanks again to cf6mech and vorschlag

good to hear, ill be purchasing the mass production parts soonish when they become available. then ill wait till my engine goes KABOOM and ill do the swap.

I have a question about the LS series that im not too familiar with that i would like some insight on.

1. do most LS engines have the same engine mount locations.

2. How hard would can bus be to program one of the LS variants that have engine cylinder deactivation? I have done a small amount of research and im still on the fence about doing this but the car will remain my DD. ( I went out and bought another car in hopes that i could make my FR-S my weekend warrior/garage queen, and that failed miserably as im putting almost no miles on the other car within the last year because i love my FR-S so much lol) So, I would be doing this to try and get better gas milage for when im not at the track and i go on long trips.

3. I'm doing this to have reliable stock performance but im not at all trying to set any records.

4. My car is currently automatic and i want to change to manual when i do the swap ( my knees are bad and i needed some years to let them heal so i bought an auto, but im ready to drive manual again). How hard would this be?
@modernbeat @cf6mech Any reply would be greatly appreciated. I'm Full on ready to do a swap as soon as my FA20 decides ive beaten this shit out of it enough. I'm currently at about 90k miles with 40 days of track use, 20 sets of tires, 15 drift sessions, and beating it daily to redline.

Will this kit be plug n play and bolt in for LS3's as well? We can't get Chevy crate motors in Ls1/2 here in Canada anymore
