Re: Engine Swap Thread. V6 to...?

I am doing a 97 3.8 to 97 LT1 swap on my camaro. I can tell you for fact, don't do it unless you have a donor car. Simple as that!

I bought my 97 z28 donor for a 1k bucks and this is the only way to go!

The k member is the easy part of the swap, you cant put a lt1 on a 3.8 k member. from what I read the lt1 k member is different for oil pan clearance, rack clearance and lets the lt1 sit lower.

find a lt1 k member swapping them is simple.
