    You're correct. It the LLT V-6 out of the Camaro. Here a picture of one without all the plastic covers on top of the motor.



    Only think I dislike about the new motors is that they are making plastic intakes and I think it looks cheap.

    I believe 310-ish HP and 280-ish TQ. I got to google it. I don't remember since I rather have a SS or ZL1.


    Edit:

    2010-2011 have a LLT 3.6L V6 that puts out 312 at flywheel and the 2012 model has a LFX 3.6L putting out 323 HP. 278 TQ on both engine models.

    One of the key points is the engine and transmission weigh less than the BP ;) A salvaged car can be obtained for a little more than a high end turbo kit. Which supplies the engine, trans, and differential. The 2012(LFX) should be able to meet all CARB requirements. Turbo power with stock reliability and predicted better fuel economy. We'll know that last part soon.

    I assume it has a aluminum block then? Sounds very interesting.

    Is there more room in the engine bay compared to an LS1? can't really tell from the pics
    Either way the lightweight part is a big sell for a lot of people I bet, it's so cool that you guys are working on this

    All aluminum. There is more room in front of the engine, two less cylinders. No mods required to the tunnel like the LSx only removal of the rear tabs.

    Pretty cool, and totally makes sense as a swap.
    95 in pieces, but good pieces.

    You still have much to learn young skywalker..............Plastic=less weight,less weight = more Zoom Zoom

    Too bad most road racing classes don't allow that switch. Put that puppy in a World ClassST Miata.............do not disturb my dream !
