Plenty of E-Rods will likely be dropped in second-gen Camaros, so we also wanted to be a bit different while still keeping it relevant; the subframe in the '75-79 X-body Novas is essentially the same as a second-gen F-body Camaro and Firebird. So what are you up against when you decide to perform this swap? For now, we'll introduce you to the major E-Rod components and the EcoNova, but stay with us in subsequent issues as we walk you through the process all the way through the installation and certification. The pains will be worth it-even if you aren't yet subject to, or just don't care about smog restrictions. A GM-reliable, turnkey 430hp LS3 is a great powerplant for any vintage rod.
