Can it be done? Absolutely, I've seen someone even rocking an LT1 V8. Your only limit to anything as always is... money. Now for the price of it; is it worth it? If you honestly ask me, the answer is HHEEELLLLLLL NNNOOOOO!!!Is it possible to swap v6 for V8 maybe like 4.8l or 5.3 or has anyone done it at all
That power range might be achievable with FI. I'd recommend looking up the engine, and see what other GM cars it went into. Maybe one of them got a performance upgrade for it that you can use. (G6 ironically, and 5th gen camaro might be the most likely suspects.) G8 and 5th gen Camaro are relatives (Both share Zeta chassis.) and share a lot of structural architecture, so what works for them might actually work for you.Definitely want the V8 sound and power I'm looking maybe 450 to 550 nothing super crazy I plan on keeping the car as long as I can but I have thought about the swap and I have decided against it it sounds good talking about it but my wallet would hate me. Is there mods for the v6 pretty much have only found exhaust and tune
I'd go 6.2L and not have to worry about 6.0L lifter problemsThere are mods you can do to your base G8 to help it out a bit. A good cold air intake and a nice flowing exhaust will help quite a bit. There are also headers, cams, intake spacers, etc.
I plan on dropping a 6.0 in my base model but not until the V6 gives up the ghost.
I installed a K&N cold air intake, a Magnaflow True X and Magnaflow axle back exhaust with dual tips and also had it tuned. Huge difference imho.
Good luck to you and let us know what you end up doing!
I would prefer to go with a 6.2 but I'm thinking parts would be harder to source, etc. Not really a concern right now as I don't plan on doing it until the original engine is dead. Might be a few years seeing that it's under a 100k and runs like a top.I'd go 6.2L and not have to worry about 6.0L lifter problems
