The Double-LS Swap You’d Expect From Charnal House Racing

You’d be hard-pressed to find a group of enthusiasts who better exemplify Hooniverse’s central mission statement than Charnal House Racing. We’ve shown you their work here before: junkyard aficionado and fiction writer Crab Spirits turned a Honda CBR engine and a Subaru 360 into a “Rolex watch made out of garbage.” The Charnal House crew includes Crab and several others and their most recent epic build, which joins the stable of the now-twin-turbo Geo MetSHO 24 Hours of LeMons racer, is a most-peculiar LS swap. There’s no General Motors in this car at all; instead, their newest drift-car project is a Lincon LS with a turbocharger slapped on the 1UZ-FE V8 from a Lexus LS400. The build has been painstaking—read through the build thread on Ziptied.com for the particulars—but the LS-swapped LS has a running engine at last. That sounds pretty dang good, doesn’t it?

    Huge bonus points for combining an LS with an LS but not an LS!

    i read through that entire build thread. MAN that sounds like an ordeal. on top of all the mechanical struggles, there’s lots of property damage drama. i would have just given up and bought a Corolla and cried all day until i died.
