    yeah sure put two in it some people have put big blocks in the 4th gen but with the lsx block why? you could have a 454 ls1 and buy headers for it rather than having them made specifically for that car
    good luck with that and please post a pic of that 03 t/a

    ls engines are the new v8,s of the future and if were to buy one i would prefer an ls7 but the cost is more than a 572 bbc crate $14,000

    uhhhhhhhhhh blower is going to do a little more then that lol.. try more arund 1grand plus hp... some of those good ones boost over 60% but yeah.. on a more serious note... not to sound rude so take this in stride.. but im assuming you arent doing this yourself considering youd hafta be a master fabricater adn in that case you wouldnt hafta ask if it would fit.. yes its possible but its gonna require skinnys up front, completely fab'ed mounting system, new tranny, with im assuming new trans tunnel... wheel wells chopped out... new driveshaft-rearend... aka your talking like... ball park 15-20 grand more probably to get that thing running in there with a blower... plus the car.. then all the supporting mods not mentioned.. and safety gear to make it pass tech... phew :wipessweatfrombrow: i assume you knew most of that but i just went ahead and said it all.. hope that helps?

    If you have money....anything is possible.

    Not sure I would want that blower sticking up out of the hood of a late model Trans Am though.
    And there are ways to make a very powerful N/A LSx without spending the $14K the LS7 costs.

    6" cowl....maybe.

    Most likely cutting would be required.

    572 with a blower... thered b more than cutting... you might as well buy sheet metal and fit it in the areas you can cover

    Okay...fine...send me the engine and I'll see if it fits! hahaha. no, j/k. On a T/A I doubt it will fit because the engine is almost entirely up under the dash. On a camaro I don't think it's that far back though from looking at one. you should look into a second gen in my opinion, big engine bay, and most hoods are cut anyway. 14k for the engine? If you got that kind of cash you could get a bandit edition they're remaking.

    My girlsfriends uncle has a 472 aluminum block with a blower makeing 1400rwhp in a 98 formula, used to be in his 79 T/A. And his custom hood looks bad ass its like a huge cowl with a scoop at the front.

    the 572 is awesome but I think if you price out a ls1 built with the lsx block you would see it would cost less than the 572 besides if you are on a buget that project would bust it big time good luck with it and I would love to see ittake a bunch of pics

    not all to my taste but some cool stuff infact just buy the whole body build a tube frame then drop that 572 in there that would be cool
