Question Camaro Engine

Is it possible to buy a Camaro without an engine? Plan to get the Hennessy HPE 800 package and they don't use the LS3. I don't see a point in having an engine just lying around.

Piece of cake around here. It'll sell in the classifieds if you price it right.

Its a dealer installed option (to remove), but no problem, dealer will use it when some young punk blows an engine & demands warranty coverage.....

Unfortunately you can't. They do have an option I believe is called "Body in White" but this is just the body, no interior, no drive train, no nothing.

You mean order a V6 if you want to spend more money. There is more difference between the two cars then just the engine. The cost required to upgrade a V6 to be able to handle what he is planning on doing will be a lot more then the cost difference between a V6 and V8.

What is that blatant advertising crap in your signature? That is annoying.

I can go buy a new LS3 for about $7500 it looks like (from a very quick google search).

I am joined to a survey site. They have me involved in a referral program where if I promote them they get me referrals which equals more $$$. Honest program as I have been with them since November. I also have a couple other survey sites that I really am enjoying. So far I've earned about $250 from the other ones.

To me it doesn't sound fair to the sponsors on here. They have to pay in order to advertise and generate revenue and you're trying to make money without paying anything.

And re-wire the car, and swap the electronics over and change the dash??? Horrible advice. Start with a V8 car.

If you don't the moderators will, Good Idea to remove it.

To answer your question I am sure Hennessy will use many of your original engine parts to build your engine and Purchasing a car without an Engine Will Not happen Unless you can a work something out with your Dealer.

I expect you will save nothing as you will need all the parts attached to the engine so you will have to buy again to install the new one.

When we build Packages like this we Resuse the Original Engine Block Cylinder Heads oil pan pickup valve covers coils fuel rails timing cover, sensors and related Hardware.

The Block and Heads get Machined and Ported then we add our 416 Forged Stroker Package, ARP Hardware, Balancing, JRE Cam Package, Supercharger, Fuel system etc etc etc.
