V6 Engine to a V8?

Curious if anyone would know how to drop a V8 engine into a V6 camaro, I know space under the hood is limited and it will be hard to trust the stock brakes on the vehicle but im torn on putting a V8 in with more power. Thanks

What generation are we talking about?
The amount of space depends on either small or big block.

needs no explanation

Just buy a V8 Camaro. It'll make life a whole lot easier for you.

Fitment in the 2010 is easy, however gonna need some suspension work for the added weight. Would have been easier to start with an SS.

if you already have the V6 Camaro...it's not worth the $$ needed to do the upgrade unless you find a wrecked Camaro w/ everything you'd need...there's just too many parts you'll need to change. If you want more power, I'd just put the $$ into a Turbo or a SC for your V6.

Really depends on why you want it, how much you are willing to spend, your skills and what you have at your disposal.

Being worth it is relative

This is one of the dumbest threads.

Sorry, but if you're serious, then why would have even purchased the V6 in the first place? If you purchased a V6 car and are willing to invest the money to convert it, then you would have purchased the V8 in the first place. No rational adult would do this - you are either dreaming or your parents bought you a V6 Camaro.

You don't think anyone ordered a V6 without driving one first?
Not completely out of the realm of possibilities.

I ordered a V8 without ever driving one.

You gotta see Jack.

If this joker is Refering to Swapping a V8 into a 5th gen yes i agree this is a Lame thread.

1. Most likely he bought a a v6 because Money and didnt wanna or couldnt afford the more expensive v8
2.Swapping a V8 into the New 5th Gen/wire Harness/Labor/Suspension/Drivetrain/ETC, will get him right back to the Cost of a SS

So yes i laugh at this thread.
