Put the V6 back, in the long run it will be more cost effective...

I would sell the V6 car and buy a V8 car. It will cost less and you won't have all the trouble that goes with an engine swap.

Plenty of 90's Camaros out there, and they are cheap. I agree with the above poster, just get a V8 Camaro. camarov6.com has a guide on this type of swap, IMO it's way more work than its worth considering how plentiful 4th gen ones are.
