We’ve covered plenty of LS swapped cars in the past, but damn – something about this ’68 Camaro with a turbocharged 6.0 liter LQ9 V8 swap is just badass. What’s even crazier though, is that the previous engine was a 454 big block.
In the video above, YouTube user AGearhead4Life brings to us a pretty awesome burnout from the owner of this ’68 LS swapped Camaro, who’s name is Bryan. The video is rather short, but still awesome of course, because it showcases Bryan’s project ’68. Now while his Camaro isn’t necessarily fully built we’ll say, he definitely has some respectable bolt-ons worth mentioning.
An OEM LS6 intake manifold and a port and polished throttle-body were also used to keep the high amount of cold air flowing from the 76mm turbocharger, into the engine. Bryan decided to beef things up like the drivetrain and rear-end as well. His Camaro uses a built 4L60E automatic transmission, and with a 3,200 rpm stall converter. Power is sent to the wheels via a Ford 9-inch rearend with 3.70 gears.
There’s a lot more done to Bryan’s Camaro that we could go on and on about, but we suggest checking out his thread on LS1tech.com. You’ll find a lot more images and information centering around the build process there, including some images of the old 454 big block, and a few of his ’60 Impala with a LS1 swap.
We’re excited to see what’s next for Bryan’s ’68 Camaro, like maybe a twin turbo setup in the future?
