Got a 05 VZ SS with an LS1 engine...thinking of swapping the engine to an L76 off a VE. Will it be a straight swap, plug and play? Or is there more to it?

There is more to it you need to get a converter as throttle body is different the reluctor wheel is different as wellhttp://www.lingenfelter.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=L460065397&Store_Code=LPE&Category_Code=C163#.UfGU98saySM

What's wrong with an ls1? Cam, dif gears and hi stall converter will see 11 at the drags.

Exactly. Why would you? Seems like you'd be doing it cause you've got nothing else to waste your money on.

What he said ^ spend the money on your current motor and it will be better then the stock L76 and probly cheaper then the conversion would cost

Fair nuf. But i gotta change my motor anyway cz of a bad piston ring. The difference between an ls1 and l76 is about $533 over where i am. So i figured if its going to be just a straight swap, might as well get me the 18 extra cubes.
