!!!NEED HELP!!! 2009 Powertrain Swap into 2007 Body
Alright Guys, so to make a story short that been going on for months now, bought a 09 Escalade AWD Fully loaded, slightly smash on the front bumper to rebuilt, bought in the US to export it to Canada, repaired the damn truck then I've try to get the safety on it, popped out as a Flooded vehicule, part of the law in Canada you Cannot plate a car that as been branded as flooded vehicule. So this truck turn out to be a Part only vehicule. After arguing with the Auction Company they did good and refunded me a good part of the vehicule and bought it as part only...
So now basically Am having a 09 Escalade with 40 000 Miles on it, that run great and cannot get it plated. So after months of research found a 2007 Escalade with 220 000 Miles on it (See where am going with this...) for CHEAP so am looking into buying it and swap the entire power train.
1st Problem am having my truck has the L9H in it and the other one the L92, do I only have to swap intake and exhaust manifold to get it to work?
2nd Problem : Apparently as per the scrap year am dealing with 09 Tranny aren't the same as the 07-08 is that right? Are they interchangable?
Any other problem you guys might be seeing I would appreciate it, and if that could be quick cuz at the price this guy is selling is 07 Escalade it won't stay there for long...
