Asked by May 08, 2017 at 03:17 AM about the 1989 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z Coupe RWD

Question type: Car Customization

so basiccaly will a 97 firebird ws6 lt1 350 fit into an
89 camaro?

1 Answer


It will fit but it not going to be easy, all the engines management control systems will have to be installed in the 89 as well as the entire power train, engine, transmission as a verything is computer controlled so they have to match, you may also,have redesign the engine and tranny mounts as well as have the driveline redone to match the different length and splined slip yoke on the newer transmission, then after you have it running it will need to have the speed sensor recalibrated to match the wheel and tire size so the computer knows how fast it is traveling to control timing, shift points, air fuel ratios, etc. I'm sure I missed some things about this job, but as with any custom work things just happen and you will have to deal with them one at a time as they crop up.
