How do you swap a 3.4L V6 engine with a 383 LS3 Corvette engine?

Its either going to be taken out of a WS-6 Trans Am or a Crate engine


It is either coming out of a WS-6 Trans Am or gonna buy a crate engine. It is going in a 95 Base Camaro with Flowmaster exhaust. Hope that's enough info....

    hmmm... lets see. you will need motor mounts for the 383, new radiator, fuel system, trany, and mounts, you will have to build a custom exhaust kit from headers to mufflers, if desired. you may have to make fender wells more shallow. the list goes on. i put a 454 in my 89 s10. and about 17grand later i had it on a track running mid 7s.

    First off the LS3 isn't a 383, it's a 376. Second, the WS6's had a LS1 motor, not a LS3.

    What kind of vehicle is this going in? Another Fbody? Need more details. Anything can be swapped into a car(within reason). You need to post up more details and get some facts straight before we can help you.

    dont forget about the computer, harness, exhaust, transmission, cooling system and rear end. your wont be able to use the v6 stuff for long behind that v8
