As for just the engine - you will need to have it tuned. You will also need to convert it to a wet sump system (Mast Motorsports sell their LS7s already converted).

I am sure there are a few other things but yes I would think you could do the swap under 20k. So for about 50k you could have a 427 1LE
The price I gave with the link is just the engine. There's more you'll need. Total cost of the engine with wiring harness and dry sump system ready to drop in, is around $16000. I'd keep it dry sump instead of converting it to wet sump. That's just me tho. It'd be much easier for a wet sump configuration and if I'm not mistaken, you can swap the las3 oil pan onto this 427 along with a few other things.

Life is short, drive it like you stole it!
