Default LS7 Camaro

Ok i plan on doing a project soon (not sure how soon) but i want to get a crate LS7 and put it in a newer camaro. my plan is to buy a v6 camaro for little to nothin if i can and hopefully match the two up and have a pretty cool car. i wanted to see what you guys think of the idea? im thinking it would cost me 5-6 grand for the car 15 for the motor and im planing on about 5 -6 in mods on other things so it would cost about 25 to 27 grand to do

id definetly be a cool car with a LS7 in it, but what kind of mods are you thinking of doing to it? I read that the motors cant handle boost too well, i would say go with a 572 and supercharge it

Not without a LOT of modification. He's gonna have enough of a problem fitting a LS2/LS7 in a newer body.

Unless it's a first, second or third gen, you ain't fittin a big block in it.

A motor plate or new motor mounts and a nice 4"+ cowl hood. I wouldnt call that alot.

Thats a factory firewall, there is only slight trimming on the bottom drivers side firewall for header clearance. Just take a look at Jon Moss' 00 ZL1 572 CI Camaro . The only problem with the tight clearance is you have to drop the K member if you ever have distributor problems.

Anywho just showing it has been done. Just look at the Street Classes youll see BBC 4th Gen's. Id say go with a built bored and stroked LT1 with a blow through carb and slap some forced induction on it. Big Block power might be too much for you to handle :thumpup:
