Would a 1997 Vortech 350 engine swap be possible 1967 Camaro? It currently has a 327 that can use a break. Also, what is the standard output for that engine in terms of torque (the 327). I know the hp is about 210, but i would like to know the torque. And if possible what modifications would need to be done to the car/engine? Thanks

Welcome to the site.
I believe that if it is the LF7 motor you are talking about (327, 210 horsepower) it specs out with its 210 horses at 4800rpm and 340 ft. lbs. of torque at 3200rpm.

As for swapping in the engine it would be possible. I don't know exactly what all you would have to do to get it to work. You will probably have to deal with the engine's computer control system.
