LS Fest West 2021: Judd Nixon Turned his High-School Car into a Supercharged LS-Swapped Chevelle| 07/07/2021

The build has undergone many variations over the years and now features a 434ci, supercharged LS-based engine. We caught up with Nixon at LS Fest West 2021 where he was knocking down low 11s on the dragstrip in testing, while hunting for 10s.

Meet The Blue Bruiser, a 93' GMC Sonoma with an LS Heart| 07/28/2021
You can’t deny that the "LS Swap the World!" mentality has been great for the automotive aftermarket. It’s never been easier to convert your vehicle to the popular late model mill, and the trickle-down technology has seeped its way into other applications. While the Chevy S10 and its GMC Sonoma counterpart have no shortage of aftermarket support, LS swap specific parts have been a long-time coming. Luckily, Hooker’s Blackheart division has released a full line of products to get the job done with as little effort as possible.
