Hey smallblock450sl,
Thanks for the post for engine, ignition, and minor electrical swaps. It is helpful and I understood it. *L*
I need some opinions, I have a G1 I bought and decided I wanted something newer with more options to lift. I bought a G8 with a bad motor and swapped a Duramax 18Hp into it cutting the crank and using the factory clutch. It blew up with probably 30 Hours on it. Back to square 1.
Would you rebuild the original motor or would you replace it with a pressurized BB.

Thanks for your input. Going cheap got me in this position. Can't break the bank but need to do it RIGHT!

Has anyone swapped a g29 engine into a g9?
I'm thinking of replacing the g29 with a 402 Yamaha, and would love to put it in the g9.

Well, G29 was produced from 2007-2016, and never featured a 402cc engine. I have put a G16 motor in a G9 (externally identical to the motor that was offered in G29). It's a tight squeeze & requires significant fabrication.

Well, the 402cc is in. Love the new drive.
Now about that 357cc that's sitting on the bench...
How significant of fabrication?

Came across this "sticky" and getting great information. I'm doing a G5 engine swap into a G8. Any advice or information how how to do this would be greatly appreciated.
