Re: 2000 camaro engine swap ideas
The V8 found in 1998-2002 Camaros is the LS1, which is 346 cubic inches. Putting in an LT1 would be more trouble than it is likely worth.
The cheapest, easiest, most reliable way to turn your V6 Camaro into a V8 Camaro is to sell yours and buy one that already has a V8, but if you want to do the work and spend the money, you have lots of options. You could buy a crate LS1 from GM, or you could buy any other LS motor (LS2, LS3, LS7, LSA, or LS9 -- that's 400, 430, 500, 550, and 640 horsepower, respectively). You could build a custom LS motor, or have a pro do it for you.
There are literally dozens of options. Give us an idea of how much money you want to spend, and what you want to do with the car afterward (drag race? daily driver? etc), and we can give you better advice.
