That's going to be a great series - anyone keeping a 4th. Gen. should have a look. It's too bad the rest of the car won't quite be on the same performance level as a 5th. Gen., but hey, it's lighter and will probably run away from it in the straights, and be pretty close in the turns. The car in that aritcle, with the suspension mods', would surely keep-up... at least

Great post.

I don't suppose it'll fit into a 93-97 without an aftermarket hood?

Great post.
An LS3 in a 4th gen (with certain other neccesary upgrades for stability and safety) will definately kill the 2010 SS in the straights since the car is lighter and more aerodynamic even if it is not as pretty or popular a body style..

It would definately get closer to an LS3 Vette in speed than a stock 2010 SS will.

Perfect example why a 4th gen will always have more 1/4 mile potential over a 5th gen. Any motor combo we can do they can do as well only 500lbs lighter with a SRA and ability to run a 15inch rear tire. Wish I kept mine.

500+ lbs if you start shedding weight! I know 4th gens that still look show quality at 3200lbs lol. Gotta love a SRA for that.

Im 99.9999% sure it won't. I believe the front of the engine will hit the hood on Camaro's so the hood and fenders would have to go also to upgrad.

I do not believe you had this problem with a 93-97 Trans Am

I guess you have a Trans AM wich is a little heavier I think. My low optioned 01 Z28 was only a little over 3400lbs. My current car........ Over 3900lbs. Ohh yeah its 500lbs and I could defenitly feel it as soon as I made the switch. Really wish now I had kept it and still got my 5th gen as well.

I thought about the LS3 swap a lot. I was curious if you could fit the TR6060 behind it without having to cut up any of the trans tunnel. I always liked the LS1 Camaro even if it may not be the most popular. It's what I grew up riding in so its something I will always like.

Dayum talk about raising a thread from the dead. LS3/TR6060 should bolt up no problem. The 6060 is basically a 56 with better ratios and some electronic enhancements over the 56. If it fits in a Vette, it'll fit in an F body.

Wrong, all the LS motors are the same dimensions and there are many LS swapped 93-97 cars.

Great post.
That post turnex out wrong. The 4th gen kill the 5th gen in the corners. Go to an autox and watch what happens. The 1le might keep up.

Correct....youll have to cut the 93-97 hood to make it fit....meaning...it won't fit under a stock hood without a K Member and some serious modifications to the hood underside and motor mounts.

Possible and popular.
