  • Engine Swap Nationals

    OK, I know there are a few guys who have a '55-'66 Studebaker powered by a Chevy LSx engine. Time run your car for the team.

    An opportunity for the other half of the Racing Studebakers to strut your stuff.

      Those rules about mixing engine parts from different years seem rather strange. I read the list of engines allowed and really don't get the point. For instance, you can't run late model heads on an older chevy block. Can someone explain the reasoning behind that?

          I don't know why they would even make that rule since they already specified that only LS, Ford Modular and late Hemi motors are allowed. Besides, the LS heads would not bolt on an early block with out a lot of work. Older engines have 5 head bolts, LS motors have 4, cam would have to be custom made since the intake and exhaust order is different.

          I doubt I would make the event, but am disappointed that they cut off the older years at '55(read tri-five Chevys). Pretty sure they geared the event to the interest demographic of their readership. Still will be interesting to me.

            1955 BODY STYLE...I think Car Craft would have a hard time proving that your 53 Coupe does not have a 55 body style...show'em what a Stude can do, even if it is LS1 powered. Even if you don't win the race, you'll win them over with style Pat, 'cause we all you'll have the coolest car out there. Yahoo! Junior
