most of the guys on the v6 camaro forums say that its easier to just sell the car and buy one that came with the v8 with the 4thgen cars.aparently there are a bunch of different things that have to be changed over when going from v6 to v8 in the 4thgen cars

any lt1 will work,u will want one out of an f-body or vette though, as the caprice and other cars used a lower hp lt1 ( different cam and ex system ) any of the lt1's will fit, but i belive u need an f-body specific oil pan if memory serves me right

and yes camaro/transam/firebird etc are f-bodys

be aware that the 3.4L ecm will not run the lt1, so u will need the wiring harness and ecm from the doner car as well , along with that u will need to change out the front springs,engine mounts and i belive the abs box needs to be moved as well.

along with that i belive the v6 cars had a single fan setup were the lt1 cars have a twin fan setup so u will need that too

most ppl who try to go from the v6 to v8 swap in those year cars end up never completing it cause its alot to do. ur better off getting a 3.4 and putting that back in then selling the car and just buying one with a v8 outright

the only cars that had the 3.4 rwd engine is the 93-94 camaro/firebird so u will have to get one directly out of that.

if the motor mounts are still in place they will be the correct ones for the v6 unless somone had changed them to the v8 mounts already

if u need help getting the car back together fullthrottlev6.com will have loads of information for u
