Question type: Car Customization

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 ........
