Is it possible?

To fit an LS7 inside of a 2002 Z28's bay? Instead of getting a new car, I was just planning on putting a new engine in my Z28, so I was planning on an LS7 if it 427 ci would fit in my car.

No idea, but seems like a good idea if it works.

I wonder...

Haha, my bad, I didn't mean for that to happen. Yeah, I know I'll be pumped if I can get it done. An LS7 is cheaper than a V6 5th gen, and it'll roast the V6, and likely roast a stock V8 = D.

He's talking about how we both have the same topic title, don't worry about it, it was off topic anyway.

Wow thanks dude! Well I guess that I'm going to do it then = D! I'm not going to go as in depth as Katech did with their LS7 SS, I'll probably just do an engine drop. What all will I need? Can I just lift the old engine out and drop the new one in? Oh yeah, and how much do you think my LS1 would sell for with 133,000 miles on it?

Really? That's awesome dude, good luck, let me know how it comes out . I looked up some price ranges for my LS1 and I've seen them go anywhere from $3,500 to $6,871. I'm willing to sell mine for $3,000. If any of you are interested, PM me. All proceedings will go towards getting that luscious LS7 in my Z28 .

i think the ls2 or the ls3 well fit very nice.
if you want a great power just installe the ls3 with a intake header y pipe catback camshaft valve spring and oil pump and im sure your car well pass the porsche 911 turbo because my lumina ss have all these thing on it and a pulley throtelle body and heads my car pass the F430 and the porsche 911 turbo and the vette ls3 but my car is an ls2 and there is one more thing that the camaro 4th gen is very light.

and i think the ls7 is very expenseve and it's part to so that i don't think it's a good idea

I appreciate it dude, but I'm pretty dead set on the LS7. It's affordable for me, and as long I know what I need to do, there's nothing stopping me getting it .
