Has there ever been an attempt for a V8?
« on: May 21, 2019, 07:38:59 AM »

I know LS swaps are over played and everything, but the roar of a V8 still calls to me. I've seen people make LS4 swap kits for FWD applications like our Capri's, that come with the transmission from an Impala SS or similar model. I've got a few questions: Is it even possible, and how many things in the engine bay would have to be moved around. I can't wait to see the discussion below on this one haha

The strut towers are too close together, the FWD LS is a very wide package, you could make a really wide Capri.
