Read this before you start planning on replacing that V6 with a V8 in your SC300!

That should read "inline-6" for the SC300.

Some nice choices for motors (LS is always a good choice for anything). Not sure the SHO motor would be a good option though. It would be interesting to see if they could try the GM 3800SC motor (used in the Grand Prix GTP models and other vehicles of that generation) as they are supposed to be bulletproof/proven motors with a lot of aftermarket support.

Thank you for catching that, Zerodrag! We made the correction!

I’ve always wanted an LS swapped SC. If I won the lottery I would put the IS-F V8 in an SC.

Different editor chiming in but I was kind of hoping the new LT ZR-1 crate motor would have made the list.

Those OEM V6 engines are very rare, ha.

To stay on topic, someone needs to swap a Tundra or ISF "UR" engine with an 8-speed AA80E transmission for fun.
