We’ve covered the ins and outs of LS swaps — or at least we thought.
Over the years, we’ve shown you how to identify LS engine blocks, looked at some of the engine mount options, examined the process of picking cylinder heads and intake manifolds for LS swaps, and more. Other topics have included a guide to LS crate engines; LS swap tuning tips; and engine swap headers, exhausts, and oil pans. We’ve also shared a variety of GM LS engine builds and swaps and even showed you how to stuff an GM LS engine into a Mazda Miata!
Yep, we’ve covered many of the essentials of LS engine swaps. However, there are a few smaller items you might need to complete your project. While these brackets, bits, and pieces are afterthoughts to some, the guys at ICT Billet have made them their passion.
ICT Billet is dedicated to producing great-looking, high-quality brackets and hardware to complete your engine. You can bring your LS build or LS engine swap together with beautiful billet bolts, brackets, and fittings. The company also produces motor mounts, lifter valley covers, gauge adapters, battery trays, coolant crossover delete kits, air temperature senders, and dozens of other products.
Here’s a small sampling of what ICT Billet has to offer:
ICT Billet Motor Mount Adapters
ICT Billet’s beautiful motor mount adapters are made in the USA from aerospace-grade billet aluminum. They offer adjustable mounting positions, from stock bellhousing location to 2.25 inches forward. Each kit includes plates and bolts.
ICT Billet Front Motor Plates
These front motor plates are available for many popular engine blocks. They’re designed primarily for full-chassis vehicles and must be trimmed to fit. Made in the USA, they’ll give you a clean look and are thick, sturdy, and very well built.
ICT Billet Power Steering Brackets
ICT Billet power steering brackets allow you to mount various types of pumps and work with both serpentine and V-belt pulleys. Crafted from aerospace-grade aluminum, the bracket kits come with spacers and bolts for proper installation. ICT Billet makes them for a wide range of car and truck makes/models.
ICT Billet Alternator Brackets
ICT Billet alternator brackets are made in the USA from aerospace-grade billet aluminum. The kits include alternator brackets, bolts, spacers, and all necessary mounting hardware. They bolt to the face of the block and can only be used on blocks with at least two mounting holes on the front of the block.
ICT Billet Air Conditioning Brackets
These A/C compressor brackets are designed for setups without the stock LS A/C compressor. They’re milled in the USA from aerospace grade billet aluminum for impressive strength and longevity, and ICT Billet makes options for LS1 Camaro or truck crank pulleys.
ICT Billet Belt Tensioner Relocation Bracket Kits
ICT Billet belt tensioner relocation bracket kits re-position your belt tensioners to maintain correct alignment to the belt. In the process, they ensure that your belt remains at a nearly constant tension for maximum accessory drive component life, while still preventing belt slip. When properly applied, these kits provide consistent tension and help dampen belt system vibrations. They are made in the USA from aerospace-grade billet aluminum and include a bracket, bolts, spacers, and, where noted, a pulley.
ICT Billet Lifter Valley Cover Plate
Seal up your engine while looking good with an ICT Billet LS lifter valley cover. They’re designed specifically for Gen. III (Non-DoD) engines and are milled from a solid block of aerospace-quality billet aluminum. The ultra-sturdy design delivers outstanding block rigidity, while the precision-machined underside provides an excellent seal using the existing factory O-ring. Their wide chamfered edges also ensure adequate intake manifold runner clearance, and the plates include the necessary flush mount, Allen head stainless steel mounting hardware.
