Those are fwd so to swap engines you will need to use a transverse v8. A LS7 or older style v8 probably won't fit in the engine bay unless it was heavily modified.

So there is no type way that you can modify A 2008 Chevy ss impala to give it more Horsepower and if so can the 427 small block Chevy engine fit in side of the 08 ss impala and is there any way possible to convert A front wheel drive into A rear wheel drive in order to get the speed that some of us guys looking for in A newer ss impala
