    What do you mean "alternative"? like if you want a nother engine that's a lil cheaper get the LS6 which I think has 420RWHP for 8 g's I belive.

    It is not going to cost 13,000 dollars for you to put in that LS7 in a V6 camaro. You'll have to first upgrade your suspension (springs at minimum to support the additional weight), and Chasis bracing so you dont twist your car into uselessness.Youll need a clutcth and tranny that will handle 500bhp. then Driveshaft rear end, a new K-member (I don't think the V6 mounts are the same as V8 but not sure), You'll be well into the $20,000 by the time you are done. Get a a C6 a nice heads and cam package and you'll be spanking snakes all night long. If you are still unsure get bit of the happy juice just in case you run into a modded snake.

    It doesn't have an ls1? If doesn't have a v8 it isn't an SS.
