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.
