Default E-Bay auction Camaro

Hi-wondering if anybody knows the history of this car, claims to have a transplanted LS7 w/ 630 Rwhp. I'm thinking about bidding but the seller says he doesn't know too much about the car-not original owner. If it's straight has alot of potential for the right price, waiting on a response from a laundry list of questions I sent the seller.
Thanks

i would not call it a scam right away. The guy definitely can not write a for sale ad, but a scam..? You might get that dyno sheet and more pics and a video, or call the guy and talk to him if you are really interested.

It's a scam, intake looks to be an LS6 or Vette LS1 non-EGR intake painted gray along with a stock 3 bolt 75mm throttle body(listed as 92mm LOL). If it really was an LS7 that intake wouldnt even fit those heads.

I reported it, hopefully the listing will go away.

just cause it is a LS7 does not mean it has to be a dry sump system. all you have to do is swap the oil pan windage try and oil pickup. you can turn any LS engine into a dry sump with using a LS7 oil pan.

Get pictures of the intake and T/B and Fuel Rails. I would definetly get a dyno sheet before I pay for 630hp worth of car. Even with all that proof you could get swindled just the nature of online buying. if hes a good scammer he will look for other peoples dyno sheets.

Good luck

Yup 4150 is right, LS7s would not of had a 3 bolt throttlebody. I am at work so I could not see the picture.

um... ya I am going to say its not a LS7 here is a picture of an LS7. A few things:
1. this one has an electric throttle body (ETC)
2. Look at the location of the alternator compared to his
3. Look where his power steering resivor is compared to the LS7
4. Finally look where it says LS7 on the FRC's of the LS7 and you don't see that in his picture.



Also it seems he has a SLP intake manifold. I know I have seen one like that before but I can't seem to find it on the web anywhere...

I wouldn't give this ad a second look. There is a wire hanging over the PS pulley, going to be cut though when you drive over the first bump in the road. If it's too much trouble to tie that off for the picture in the ad, how about everything you can't see?

That tells the whole story that this is a pile of ****.

my first instinct told me that one wouldn't swap in an LS7 and be so proud of it as he is only to retrofit C5 FRCs instead of keeping the much cooler ones already on it. Glad you're not going after this one.
