Hamburger’s Performance Takes the Drama Out of LS Swaps

Hamburgers 1108 LS Swap Oil PanThanks to its light weight and highly efficient design, GM’s LS-engine series has become the go-to replacement for the traditional Chevy small block or big block. However, swapping one of these updated powerplants into a classic vehicle presents a number of fitment issues with the factory oil pan. Now Hamburger’s Performance has made swapping a modern GM LS V8s into your car easier and less expensive with its new Econo-Series LS Swap Oil Pan.

Hamburger’s new LS Swap Oil Pan solves fitment issues by relocating the LS-engine’s sump to the rear of the engine, and designing the pan with a lower profile than the factory piece to ensure adequate ground clearance.

Built from two-piece stampings of extra thick .055-inch steel, each Hamburger’s Econo-Series LS Swap Oil Pan is jig welded and then block-fit tested to ensure the best possible fit and finish. Relocation of the factory oil filter is required, so Hamburger’s has a pair of integrated -10 AN fittings to make hooking up the remote engine oil filter a breeze. Hamburger’s #1108 LS engine swap pan uses the factory o-ring seal to ensure an OE-quality seal. Like all Econo-Series Oil Pans, the LS Swap pan is built with a reinforced mounting flange to withstand the higher stresses created by high horsepower engines, and to provide additional block rigidity.

Hamburger’s Econo-Series LS Swap Oil Pans come with everything needed for a complete installation including pan, magnetic drain plug, specially designed oil pump pickup, and hardware. These pans fit all iron block versions of the LS engine family.
