Not sure I'd pay $20k for an engine on ebay.

Furthermore to sync everything is going to cost A LOT, IMO.

Plus you could get a used ZL1 in the 40s....

Was just posting so we have something to talk about.

Just i was thinking in the future of getting a cheep SS and swap drive chains. So i can end up with two camaros. maybe give the v6 to the kids.

Does anyone know if it is possible to put the SS v8 into a RS? or other way around?

Possible? Sure anything is possible if you have the funds.

Cost effective? Not in any sane mind.

Your talking about a complete overhaul of the whole front section of your car but also if you have an A6 a new rear Diff and driveshaft. And that's just a quick type up of the amount of parts that would need to be changed would be pretty high.

I got way to much into my camaro. 52K+

I had a option once to update to a SS same car and dealer would let me change over any parts i wanted to keep my stuff. but the overall price would have cost me $20k once its paid for.

my only option now is to just keep LLT and maybe a SC. or try to find same car in future in SS and change over everything and sell v6 when done.

Getting the computer stuff right would be the real tough part, as mentioned above.

KalCorp, you're into your car for over $50K? Wow. I'm under $30K on mine and I've got the IPF in it already. Granted, an LS manual coupe, but still...

The Camaro it self was $40K think it was 44 when said and done with tax and warranties.

I got about 11k+ into it. and i did 99% of the work myself.

It is a beast and I love it.

Yeah, that's where it really makes the difference. Yours was factory loaded to the gills whereas my only option was floor mats. No, really. Floor mats. Pretty basic.

You can get an ls engine for around 3-10k depending what you find most pretty much bolt in to each other.

That's part of the "stock/stealth" feel of the unit. Looks like it's factory.

And go ahead and try, you'll never be able to lose the CIA. Nor the NSA, for that matter.

I would never trade to a stock SS. Maybe a Z, but I'll take my LLT SC over any stock SS.

My vote is to swap in a Ford Coyote 5.0, a Dodge 8-speed transmission, and finally a Chevy 1LE rear end. Would make an interesting build.

If you want to make it stand out, just paint the vortech head unit orange to go with your theme. It'll stand out then. Not to mention that anyone who knows anything about modifying cars will know it's a supercharger when they see the centri. Someone who doesn't know about cars won't be able to tell but they probably would think a roots is stock as well.

Agree, or just get one of those big underhood bowtie thingys that mounts to the hood mat and have it say SUPERCHARGED or something like that.

It would look pretty sweet.

Also, pretty sure there is an option that you can get the Supercharger itself in some kind of chrome or polished finish instead of the black for extra cost of course.

I checked and they told me that was only the first runs. was even looking for the Red tubing but was told no they don't have it. I will check again if i go in that direction.

Yes there is a lot you can do.

Its just i am waiting on the tuning information and the ROOTS type SC. i just like that look and feel and want to work that first if i can. I feel it different and more show.
If not then the IFP is going in.

So does anyone have any data on when Dimsport is going to be marketing some kind of tuning for the LLT ? All this is great, but no Bosche tuning means no solution for LLT owners.
