Dry sump oil system in the 1LE

Hey all

Was wondering if anybody else feel the same about 1LE as I do.. GM really put a solid package together for the Camaro.. and to not bump the power of the LS3 at all and out perform the Boss makes this car really special

It's just one lil thing that bugs me... since this would be a track oriented car.. GM really dropped the ball by not putting in the Dry sump LS3 out of the Corvette Grand Sport... it couldn't be that much more expensive and honestly it would be highly worth the option

Since GM thought it was necessary to leave the system out.. is it possible to transplant the Dry sump system from the GS to the 1LE

Have plans of owning a 1LE with a built forged NA 427 with at least 600 horses and want the best possible set up

This would be my first Camaro.. but I admit, the 392 Challenger is really swaying my mind (I just like the SRT8, nothing to do with the camaro at all.. opened minded car enthusiast)

The 392 is a beast, I wish Chrysler would make that the r/t though and have a blown version of that engine for the SRT. Both are really nice cars, can't go wrong with either one.

If you're changing out the rotating assembly, then yes, it's definitely possible. You'll need an LS7 style crank with dry sump snout.

Yeah.. I drove one, the torque is amazing... this is just me but I'm not a fan of turbos (unless its a TT RS ) or superchargers... I'm a old fashioned all motor type of guy.. imho Chrysler did the rite thing by not blowing the hemi... If I do get a SRT.. I will be dropping in a 426 Beast of a hemi
