I have

a 1976 Camaro
i want to put a crate engine in it
what should i put
i dont want the biggest baddest one possible but i also want one that
not every one would think of putting into something like that
i have been looking for a 5.7L tundra engine but the 2010 camaro is going to have a 6.2
are there crate engines that have the same specs as those
im doing this over a quite long period of time
so i can save the money i have and wait
does anyone have an idea of what i should do?
and for the 2010 camaro what is the difference besides AFM in the two motors?

Here are a couple of my favorites. You can also get a good local builder to assemble a decent small block reasonably. If you want to be different find a Buick GN drivetrain to swap in.

LOL just by building this year camaro you are already being different, not a popular body style (IMO). build it clean build it simple. put an 305 in and let it keep the AC and that alone would let you be different and not to far off from stock. most people go the route of big bad motor and no AC. But puting the Tundra motor in is just asking for trouble, american car (standard) japoneese (metric) and a ton of custom made parts like drive shaft, motor mounts, cross member, and finding a place to put the computer if you go with a newer model engine. to much of a headach, IMO

^^^^ that would be cool.

I'd also consider swapping in an LS motor and keeping all the computer and fuel injection stuff.
