Engine lt-1 to ls2 or ls7
On a 1997 Camaro v8 lt1.. can you changeout the lt-1 to an ls2 364 or ls7 427. of course the cost is greatly different between the 2 blocks but are the mounts the same anyone know? An ls7(500hp) is the newest chevy block I believe being used in vettes and runs around $12000. the hp is amazing compared to the 200+ in an lt1 also I know the lt1 is a 350 and the ls7 is 427 i cant find info on it thanks
the mounts a alot different, you can put a 427 in a 97 camaro. the only thing is the cost and modifications that you will have to do
you need big block frame mounts & maybe a new drive shaft. stiffer springs, computer ........
a lot of work involved
the new ls7 isnt a big block its a small block, but id look into a ls6 or ls3 if u want a bigger liter motor the ls7 is alot of dough and my buddy built a mean ls6 putin 550hp to the ground for under 7500 just with a cam heads and intake and a good tune and lol a new moser axle after blowin up the factory one hittin it with that many ponies
