Asked by May 09, 2015 at 09:53 PM about the 1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z Coupe RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi my name is Evan, my grandfather
has an 88 IROC Camaro with a bad
5.7 in it. I would really like to replace
the engine for him for fathers day, I
do not want to spend a lot of money
on a brand new engine for it, so I
guess my question is can I buy a 5.7
out of a truck or should I get one out
of a 3rd gen Camaro/Firebird? If I got
one out of a truck would I have to do
anything to make it compatible with
the Camaro? Im not a stranger to
cars just do not do engine swaps
everyday.

Evan what model truck/year?

I guess any c/k 1500 1988 and up. Preferably fuel injected. I just found truck engines to be a little cheaper then out of a Camaro.

As long as it is and 85 up to 89,you can do the swap,by changing intake and exhaust out,should mount right up,no problem,and oh yea,you will have to change the engine mount,truck is bigger.

Just remember that the truck engine might have a different cam than the IROC and the timing may be a little different. Otherwise should be a pretty easy swap.

What is wrong with the engine? Take it to a good mechanic and have him go through it. Sometimes a major tune up is all that is needed. If the heads, valves or compression is bad, perhaps a rebuild will be the less expensive way to go. There are businesses that rebuild engines and can drop them right in for less than a crate engine. If it is really shot and needs replacement, a turn key crate engine is a little on the pricey side up front, but in the long run just as cheap. Don't rush into making a decision, those decisions always seem to be more costly and wrong decision. Glad you are thinking of your grandfather. Seems there are good people in your family. good for you and you grandfather is lucky to have you even if it does not work our. Good luck.

Can you put a 1993 Chevy Silverado 5.7 engine in an 1986 camaro (both fuel injected)

You can. However the can will be different and the engine size will change the computer tuning. If they are both TBI the swap can be done easily enough. Though it will still be a project and you should check out some forums and do some research before beginning.

Yes you can up the engine. There is an old saying among after market parts stores or speed shops. "How fast do you want to go? How much money do you have?" For an engine to have more hours power, it needs to breath. Exhaust headers and flow through mufflers. If it has a cat, there are cats that allow better air flow with less restriction. Intake filters help. Rebuild the engine, upgrade the cam, heads, valve train, ignition, intake manifold, upgrade the EFI system, and don't forget to improve the transmission and suspension along with the drive train to handle the increase HP not built for by the factory. High performance tires, and new fuzzy dice for the rear view mirror.
