I have never done this swap but as a I understand it ... the GTO LS2 has a different oil pan than the Camaro type.

There actually is a lot of room in the 37 engine bay if you replace the firewall with a *****in or Direct sheetmetal unit. I just put together a 37 club coupe for a customer with a 502 bbc. I would contact street and performance for a catalog, they have most of the conversion parts worked out, and you can learn a lot just from the catalog pictures!

Surf on over to and introduce yourself on the Conversions and Hybrids Forum. Lots of folks there that have swapped these engines into everything imaginable.
