I stumbled upon this site when doing some research for my L67 swap, and decided to join!
I'm the original owner of my 2000 Impala LS, bought it new in Dec '99.
Since day one I wanted to supercharge the thing and I always said once the Imp gets around 120K mi and the tranny goes I would find a donor Buick or something and swap it all over. Sure enough, in 2008 at 121K mi trans goes south and the Impala got parked. A year later I picked up a low mile totaled 2004 SS Indy for a song. It took me about a year to completely dissasemble the SS and cut up the carcass for scrap. I kept everything that was salvageable and sold off some things I didn't need/want.
And just last weekend I completed swapping the L67/4T65e into my LS. Some other things I swapped over were the radiator, wheels/tires, guages, grille, radio (dang theftlock), and other misc switches that were worn out.
Only other mods I've done to the car are some Eibach springs, and an amp/speakers. Other than that it's pretty much stock.
Don't have any new pics of the Impala yet, been too lazy after work this week to go out and take some but here are a couple from a few years back with her winter shoes on.
Jesus created the internet and puppies and dandelions and kittens and sunny days and lollipops and impalas and turbochargers and pizza and beer and wings and boobies and blowjobs and pizza and pizza and pizza and beer and snow days and football and cheerleaders and drag radials and nascar and everything else that's awesome.
It's hard to find retards of this quality in such masses. It's truly amazing.

Damn, that donor car got smashed up good...
Did you have the tranny rebuilt or did you just put the SS's tranny in your car?
The story behind the SS is that it was in a shop up on a rack being serviced (the front end had some brand new bushings so I'm assuming that is what was being done to it) and a landslide took out the shop. The car was knocked off the rack and landed on top of a couple other cars, thus saving it from the mud. As you can see the car was completely totaled but it wasn't rolling on the road when it happened. I actually drove the car around a little (slowly) to make sure everything was working okay before dissasembling.
I gave the tranny a quick lookover and some fresh fluid & filter, but other than that I just dropped it in & hoped for the best. So far so good. It only has 74K mi so I should get a few years out of it. I've rebuilt transmissions before and I'll probably do this one when the time comes.
I'm workin on the pics, I realized yesterday how dirty the car is under the hood so I gotta wash it first Maybe I'll get some up later tonight.
gave the old girl a quick wash & snapped some photos tonight...
