I want to Swap the 2.8 Liter engine in the car now for a 5.7 liter engine. I need to know if I'm going to run into any major problems of if there are any major modifications I need to make for it to fit. Thanks.

ok i just bought a Camaro that had a 2.8 in. I bought it and it with a 5.7 in it. You possibly might need to change motor mounts. That's not hard. Crossmember and drive shaft and everything will line up. What for tranny are you doing with in the camaro. If you go to a th350 you'll need a conversion kit, from a 200turbo to th350. Might have to run new exhaust but everything should be where you need it. hope this helps you some
