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 :usa:

Hmmm I didn't see any dry sump oil system either, is that how u know? but he's quoting HP #s of 630! I requested a Dyno sheet

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.

Don't do it unless he has proof and that dosen't look like a LS7

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 shit.

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.

Who would run 4.80s with an auto anyway? That's a ton of gear even for an m6. Did he even answer any of your questions?

First off why does the motor have to have the powersteering pump and alternator in stock vette location if its a camaro swap??? That is not an ls7 but those are not things i would go by, You can use stock brackets and relocate your alternator and ps pump... Looks better on bottom anyways.

Wow, it surprises me how many people in this thread know so little about LSx motors.

Maybe if we can get one more guy to verify if this is an LS7 or not, then we'll be set.

ls7 intake is not so rounded and is wider.... ls1/ls6 intake if i say so myself.
ls7's dont have egr headers like that.... those are ls1 headers!

Another stupid and pointless post.

Ls7 don't have EGR? What the fuck does that have to do with anything. If you were to put an LS7 in an F-body you have to use F-body headers. Half of which have EGR ports. True, you should be using a bigger race header, but you don't have to.

LS1 MAF. So what? You can use any MAF you want. Again it might not be optimal, but that's still irrelevant.

LS1/LS6 intake, well that is obvious by looking at the TB. No need to look at the runner shape or the fuel lines. Which means that they are cathedral port heads. But guess what, those heads will bolt onto an LS7 short block. He says forged LS7 motor, maybe he just means bottom end.

The only thing that he says that can really be proven wrong, by looking at the evidence that we have, is the 92mm TB. I'm sure it probably doesn't have all that it says, but it can't dis proven by those pics.

It looks to have patriot heads and an LS6 intake so it could still be worth $8500, but anyone considering this should not expect anything more.

Obviously this guy is an idiot, and you^^^ sticking up for him means maybe you and him are the same person :suspiciou Either way, the car looks like a throwed together piece of shit.

Have a nice day :D

I ran across this posted on craigslist here in Dallas a few weeks ago wile I was looking for an F-body. He claimed he got it for his son but it had too much power for a 17 year old . It seemed kinda odd to me.
