I was thinking of putting a maggie on my camaro, but a CTS-V crate motor might be a better option for a couple of reasons like;

I can keep my factory motor and put it back.

Basically I'm going to get the same power as if I put a maggie, but with stonger internal parts.

The CTS-V motor is complete, and probably comes with a warantee !!

Does anyone know if the CTS-V motor goes directly into the camaro with no addtional mods.

For example the all the wiring is the same?

All the plugs are there?

Does the airbox line up? The CTS-V looks like it is off the the side.

Does a CTS-V airbox fit in a camaro ?

Any known issues? or unknown variables?

Anything else you can think of??

Has anyone done it?

Have you done it?

Any pics?

Any swap llinks?

:lol:

For $14k you could have yourself one wild SS and still have a ton of money left over for buying all of us wings and beer for saving you all of that money!

Think about it: It's going to cost more money on top of the $14k to have it installed and then tuned. You'll only have put the engine in and not upgraded anything else. With the Maggi, you can slap that in, get a tune, upgrade suspension, brakes, wheels, etc and have money left over. I'm also sure all of our sponsors will warranty their work on a LS3.

Why buy a crate motor with a supercharger on it (for $14K uninstalled) when you can just install a supercharger on your existing 6.2L V8 for around $7K?

i got a quote from a well known shop for about $14k (parts and labor) for a magnacharger, cam swap, L99 to LS3 conversion, pulley, boost-a-pump, and all other necessary components with a tune. that would get me around 600+ rwhp versus 550 flywheel hp with the LSA engine.

Sounds like you'd bought the wrong car if you want to convert from L99 to LS3 (and the A6 costs a little more than the M6 to boot).

CTS-V motor is the same as the ZL1 Camaro. Cannot think why anyone would go through all that expense when you can exceed the power for far less$ spent.

In fact (did not look close) as long as you have a V8 already, $8k of mods or less, and you will beat any CTS-V or ZL-1 with bolt ons.

Like the others have said, save your money. Put it in your current setup. For 14k, you can get a turbo setup, or supercharger setup, to include fuel, half shafts, drive shafts, even a rear end upgrade.
