2017 Camaro V6 to V8

Asked by May 10, 2017 at 12:41 AM about the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro LS Coupe RWD

Question type: Car Customization

Can I switch a Camaro v6 engine for a v8
engine. I don't care about buying a new
transmission or extra stuff. Can it
physically be done?

Yes it can be done but you should just buy a V8 car.


yes... it is just very time consuming and costly. got a donor in mind?


Physically, yes! Cost effective, no! Take a look at the Camaro5 forums. Many people have tried and quit due to the cost. Almost all of the electronics have to be replaced, not just the ECU.
