What engine is this?

Is this a LS3?

Its supposed to be a 2010 Camaro LS3 with a truck oil pan on it... hmm

LS3's didn't come with automatic trannies also right?

Thanks!

okay forget the transmission remark. He said the tranny came from another car.

This really looks like an LS3... Is that VVT on the front though?

That's the engine VIN, get a close up & non-blurry picture of it and someone will be able to look it up for you.

2 me. It looks like VVT sensor at the timing chain cover.
Could check the number on the cylinder head at the front/side of the head.You can almost see it.

The valve covers and valley pan are not for a 2010 Camaro. It is a VVT engine so it may be a truck motor.

Ask them for the casting numbers. That 3 digit code on the corner of the heads will tell, can't quite read them in the pic.

My guess is a truck engine, like a 6.2 from a Burban or Escalade.

I think that is a *06 on the corner of that head? If so, definately a truck engine.

what is the 3 digit code on the heads for the ls3?

I belive that number on the bottom is the GM part number.

I need that "block" part number though... hmm

Most LS3 engines (pretty sure all Camaro LS3) are 821, on the corner of the head will be 0821. That code on the corner in the pic looks completely different.

You'll need the block and head casting numbers to really know what it is, but I'd pass on that because I don't think the seller knows what it is either.

no matter what, he is trying to sell you an engine he is calling a LS3,, but its not an LS3. but depending on what your plans are it could still be a good engine but dont pay LS3 money for it

The valve covers are mixed up, left and right. Looks like an l92.

yeah its a l92... im going to pass... obviously mileage/condition is supect now. I know people who sell L92's love to go "its a ls3"... but that scares me honestly. it looks pretty clean but he said it was out of a camaro ss with only 10k on it... he got it from someone so i dont think he ever doubted.

they "adjust" the mileage... next thing you know you have a trashed crank as a suprise when you open the block...

the corrosion on the front cover and side of the block does not look 10k new either.

thanks for all the help!
