Yeah it's just that the wife just started a new job and is stressed about bills right now. It'll take a while for her to settle down and allow me to spend more money on the
"damn camaro" as she refers to it. lol.

With a wet sump LS7 available from GM now that seems to be an easy plug and play mod. That’s what I would really like to do.

Then I would have a “spare” LS3 that could find a new home between the front tires of my CTS Sport Wagon!

I’ll be 64 this year and I still haven’t decided what I want to be when I grow up?

15K for a brand new GM out of the box LS7 with a warranty really isn't too terrible.


I figure it would cost a total of around 19K to 20K to make a full swap with some additional goodies.
