Want To Put a LS2 in my 69 Camaro
I just bought a 69 Camaro what advice can you give me I've been talk'n 2 alot of people and everyones got there own opinion. First of all it's just a roll'n chasis has no motor/tranny,all the body is straight no rust just been painted. Some ppl say put in a small block 383 others say big 396 and others say Ls2 So I know your question "what am I looking for?" I would like to have a stop light burner 4-500 HP yet a car that you can drive 1000 miles not overheat, pretty much a street cruiser that I can take to the track every now and then. Yet still have the family jump in take a cruise to the winery and so on.(not radical head banger) Was leaning towards LS2 I have a 12 bolt rear end wanna put some 373's in. Worried about how complicated it would be to put a LS2 in it? My car is completely empty so where do I start "painless wiring"? I heard about a engine mounting kit spose 2 move the motor 3" off the fire wall no fab work where would I find this? Would really like to talk 2 somebody that has actually done this everybody I talked to said they heard/saw it but can't steer me in right direction. Has all interior but needs to be restored also previous owner took drums off the front to install disc brakes. What I really wanna do is put some 20's on rear and 18's front what tire sizes and do I have to tub it? Also want to install A/C, need help did I join the right site or need to check out others any help? Also where is a good place to find parts? Previous owner installed all new bushings coils springs etc. so I plan to keep it goin would like to buy new but also not tryn 2 put a million dollars in it either. Thanks for your help
