Featured Hot Rod - Scott H's 1971 Chevelle
Scott H, brought us his 1971 Chevelle to have a LS3 conversion done. SPS installed a 430hp LS3 with 4L70E transmission. Added a few upgrades to the engine including the tunnel ram intake, MSD coils and/or cleaner system. Other updates to the car include Vintage Air AC System and performance exhaust. At Southern Performance Systems, we build today's engines for yesterday's classic cars.Are you looking for a new engine for your Hot Rod? Give us a call at 678-482-0866.
Engines & Transmissions
Engine options include LS1-LS2-LS3-LS7 in GM's Automotive Line and 5.3L-6.0L-L92-L9H for GM's Truck Line. The GM Performance Line offers the 480 & 525 Horse Power LS3s plus the LSx 376 and the LSx 454. Horse power options for the factory and performance LS engines range from 300 to 665. SPS offers custom builds using aluminum block and the more serious LSx block. For the budget-minded, there are some good used take-out engine available at great prices.
Transmission options include 4L60E- 4L70E-4L80E-4L85E and the new 6L80E & 6L90E 6-speed automatic transmissions. Manual transmissions such as the T56 Magnum and TKO600 are also available. SPS provides transmission that use a standard slip yoke, where as the production units use a fixed yoke that requires a 2- piece driveshaft. The 6-speed automatic can be used with a paddle shifter for those who want to shift the transmission without the use of a clutch. For high-horsepower engines, custom transmissions can be built to handle to extreme power and torque. Our stock torque converters work great with most engines and we have high-stall converters for our big cam engines. When setup correctly, these high-stall converters provide great gas mileage and work just fine on the highways. SPS will pair your engine and transmission with the converter that will work best for you.

Along with the harnesses that we offer, SPS also offers GM Factory ECMs (Engine Control Modules) and TCMs (Transmission Control Module) and custom programming.
