I have a chance to buy a 1996 camaro t top in really good condition. It is a v6 with auto tranny. I want to put a v8 in it , but not sure if it is a major opperation. It will be a project for me . I like that year and have allwasy wanted a fun car to ride in. But dont want to waste to much money.
not trying to hijack your thread but what would need to be done to just make it a drag car? I have a 94 v6 that we want to make a full drag car...What needs to be done in the frontend? Or is there even more i dont know about??
i just finished this swap i have a 96 myself. if you put a lt1 or ls1 in you will need to buy the k member for that motor the. 3.4, 3.8, lt1, and ls1 all take different k members. you will need the computer and wiring for that motor as well. change the driveshaft and the rear. if you do the work yourself and can get the parts cheep its not to bad. motor $1000 to $1500 with computer and wiring. k member $100. driveshafts $100 at most. rear i have seen anywhere from $150-$300.
What type of BB? Remember there is no room for a distributor with a small block. I would guess a BB distributor would be sitting right about where your defroster vents are. That going to be a lot of cutting.
