My LS1 Camaro died, anyone have a spare LS1? - April 26, 2013, 12:03 AM

My 2000 Camaro SS spun a bearing, it's annoying but it happened. I know some of you like F-body's so i'm hoping you have some parts. It's the car in my sig, 2000 Camaro SS, auto with 142k miles on it. Does anyone have an LS1 or LS2 engine they are willing to sell to me? I know it's a long shot but it might be cheaper than buying a new car or less time consuming than rebuilding my engine.

Thanks a million

Well you have a few options. Either way you are going to spend some $$ if its a car you want to keep for 100k+ miles rebuild the motor. If not sell the car or put in a junk yard motor.

I will ask a few people I know and see if they have some leads to a motor ( hopefully with the history) will let you know later today.


Sorry to hear man.

I don't know why I put this in the non sportbike section, this should be in classifieds.

i'd love a 408 lol, i'm looking at getting an engine from Thompson Motorsports that a few people have mentioned on ls1tech. Maybe a 6.0 if it's affordable but if not maybe a 5.7 again.

Just get that LQ9/L92 setup that I posted from GA. That shit is making 500hp easy.

Or if you're trying to do this as cheap as possible, get that LQ9 with with the 317 heads, 450hp all day.

hahaha i'm like 3 minutes into watching an engine removal on my car. I don't have anywhere close to the amount of patience it would probably take to get the engine out. Good god, I had enough trouble installing long tube headers on the damn car. Man, these cars suck dick to work on lol.


Nor do I have a lift for "easy" removal.

You can pull the motor with it on jackstand and a pump jack. Been done before.

Jesus, what a crazy design - having to drop the motor from the bottom with all of the front suspension. My dad had a 96 Z28 15 years ago and I could never understand why they crammed the LT1 into that engine bay.

Anyway, not sure how you would do the task in the video without a proper lift. I would recommend keeping the SS, because after all it is an SS. If you junk it, 20 years from now you will kick your self. Maybe if you are going to pull the tranny, you might think about a 6 spd swap?

If you need an extra set of hands, I would love to help out. Im not a tech but have a truck load of basic tools and could help out on the weekends if you needed it.

Good luck.

haha yeah the design is pretty annoying in general but they are fun. Looks like i'm probably gonna keep the SS for now. I'm looking for beater cars, auction crown vics, just something temporary. I figure a crown vic will be cheap/fun/great to pull people over. As for the 6 spd I might do it but it depends how much one goes for. My WS6 was 6 speed and it was fun but sucked in traffic around here. If the swap is done any time soon i'll let you know if I need a hand. Maybe if I gather like 10 people they can all hold the car in the air for a few hours....

Keep it (although you already are).

I had a dual cat 1996 LT1 and while it was a bitch to work on, it was a solid little car.
