5th Gen V6 to V8 Swap

If you haven't seen already here is the latest video in which a member here has just about finished his 2012 Camaro conversion from a V6 to V8. He goes into price and issues he's encountered. Worth the watch, don't forget to like comment and subscribe to the channel.

I would like to know if you changed or modified and body control modules? I realized you changed the ECM to match the L99 engine but as far as other modules, did they work as is? What programming needed to be done to marry the V-8 engine to the V-6 body and do all of the instruments work as they should?

How did he get the ecm to communicate with the bcm? Ive always wanted to v8 swap my car. It can't be too hard. A matter of making the electronics communicate.

Mainly because the swap is very expensive. Motor and trans cost 4-6k. harnesses and labor if they cant do it costs around 2500. for 6500-8500 they could get a v8 stock car. I contemplated swapping my llt but nope lol. not now.

Definitely not something Id suggest taking on if your not capable and have patience to find deals if you sell what you dont need you could be in the 5k range easily

He did the work mostly with help from some family and friends if you go the shop route you're going to pay and at that point it probably wont be worth it a lot of the stuff he's done is kind of uncharted not many (maybe 1 or 2 ) have done it with the 5th gen. With that being said most shops are going to charge a decent amount if they will do it at all. Its definitely not all that complicated to do at home but were engineering college buddies so our definition of hard has gradually changed over the last couple of years.
