Is the oil cooler aftermarket? Surprised that material wasn't caught by the filter first. Ick.

I considered this route but decided against it because I've seen too many issues with turbocharged cars (especially non-OEM setups) on track. That, combined with additional heat soak in the engine bay/front end, has steered me away from any form of FI for now. That's not to say I won't wind up looking at some form of boost on the LS in the future but for now, roughly 450 whp will get me to the power/weight ratio I'm after:K swap and a mild turbo??
A lot of shops getting to s of power out of those
It isn't worth it IMO. Clean title S2Ks are currently fetching a minimum of 15k for a high mileage or clapped out example. This car has lower miles (~63k), clean title, and a lot of track goodies already installed. I can sell the stock drivetrain for roughly 6k given it was recently rebuilt, which will offset some of my cost to do the LS swap.Would it be possible to find a blown up S2k for this project?
Or is it not worth it?
