Can I Fit A 2008 Or 2009 Ls Impala Engine Into My 2007 Ls Impala

Difference between Impala LS and LT 2008?

In 2008 the main difference was no floor mats standard in an LS the Ls does not have remote start as standard and optional power seat. All of those things were standard on the LT.

Will an impala SS v8 fit in my impala LS engine bay?

Yes, they are both the same generations, your exactly car came with that engine from factory too!.

If you want to run performance simulations to find out how your car will performs after the swap you can use a car performance simulator.

Can you put an Impala engine in a 03' Chevy S10 LS?

the problem that i see is that the impala did not come with the same engine so inspections would be tricky. they had the 3.8 and the s10 came with a small 4 manger or the 4.3 if i remember right.

Can i fit a v8 engine into my 2000 chevy impala?


The 2000 Impala did not come with the option of a V8 when new (the SS had a supercharged V6 for 2004). You would want to avoid anything much bigger than 3.8L (231 cubic inches). With a good fabricator and some patience, you could do just about anything, but I do not suggest it. If you want to drop something a little more potent in your Impala, I suggest you find a real hot V6. If you must have a V8, you might want to get a new car. It just doesn't make much sense to put a V8 in a front drive, unibody car. It will be tough.

You could do it, but it would be hard and you couldn't but a very big V8 in there. Most American V8 engines don't get much smaller than 4L. You may be able to find some European V8 engines under 4L, but it would be much easier(and cheaper) to buy a new car then.

Can I fit 3 kids in a chevy Impala w/car seats?

Even if you could squeeze them in, do you really want them riding that close together? I would never put my boys within arms reach of eachother, plus they will need a little extra room for all the crap to entertain themselves in the car.

Can someone tell me if I can fit a 08 corvette engine in a 2006 impala?

The Impala is a front wheel drive (a real piece of crap system) and the problem that I see is that the front wheel drive hardware will break under the 400 to 500 hp of the Corvette engine. Both cars use the small block GM V8 so the engine should fit. I'm not sure if the Impala front wheel drive transmission will bolt up to the Corvette block, but am very sure that you may be taxing the ability of the Impala's transmission to withstand the power. Another big problem will be actually getting the hp and torque of the '08 Vette engine to the ground.

Here's a perfect example of what can be done with the right amount of cash flow;

Car experts!! What year is the year of my Impala LS..?

Ask the seller what year. Looks like an older Impala like a 2006 or 2007. When you see the car open the drivers door and there is a sticker on the inside of the door that tells you when the car was made. There are also stickers inside the trunk. If the seller gives you the VIN (vehicle identification number) you can look that up (probably will cost a fee) and it will tell year the year.

Keep in mind for the 2010 model year the Impala emblems on the sides where deleted. If this car has the Impala emblems on the sides it is a 2009 or older. That means either a 2006, 2007, 2008, or 2009.

Plus certain colors got deleted during this Impala's run. I know this from looking on That is why I guess a 2006 or 2007.

Can 20 inch rims hurt my transmission on a 07 impala ls?

dont listen to the other two my mom ones a repair shop and like 6 times a month we get people with like a Chevy caprice with not that pawerfull trans with there car lifted off the ground with 26s 24s 23s and they grinded the gears on the trans but with your 3.5l and a small trans 20s will probably be fine but eny higher will mess up your trans

Can I Put a Tow Ball on My Chevy Impala?

I kind of disagree with Chris's answer. If your car is a front wheel drive you need to know the tow rating of the car and how much the suspension can handle since that car will even "sag" in the rear end with 3 people and luggage in the trunk. And any chevy dealer should have the exact capacity numbers on file some where and that is what Chris should be able to come up with so I would e-mail him or chris send Bc the right numbers. Just saying yes can get Bc in a lot of trouble if he loads the trailer weight wrong or uses the wrong hitch assy.
I bought a trailer hitch (class IV) for my Jeep $135.00

It tells the capacity of the engine the car has.For starters : 1 Litre = 1000 cc (cc means Cubic Centimeters or cm^3)So a 1.2L car is:1.2×1000= 1200 ccLikewise a 1.4 L car has a 1400cc engine;and so on.Also note that if a 1.2L car has a 4 cylinder engine, it means each cylinder's capacity is 1200÷4 = 300 ccVolume of a cylinder is :(π(D^2)h)÷4where D is the diameter of the cylinder called Bore Diameter and h is the height of the cylinder called Stroke Length.Thus when you calculate the volume of each cylinder of a 4 cylinder 1200cc car, using the above formula by measuring the bore and stroke yourself you'll end up getting 300cc or some no. very close to 300cc since π isn't an absolute no.Now for the technical part :How does that matter?Well the performance of an engine (Horsepower, Torque, Acceleration, etc.) depends upon how much fuel it can burn when the Piston inside the cylinder reciprocates once; i.e. when it moves from the topmost point of the cylinder called Top dead center (T. D. C.) to the lowermost point of the cylinder called the Bottom dead center (B.D.C.).Here's an image I sourced from the Internet :But there's a catch. You can't add an infinite amount of fuel because you need air to burn this fuel, lest the fuel remains unburnt and comes out of the exhaust and deposits on the tailpipe (The greasy deposits which you might have seen especially on tailpipes of obsolete 2-stroke two wheelers is this unburnt fuel).Thus, to get more performance you need to burn more fuel and to burn more fuel you need to suck in a lot of air into that cylinder. One simple way of doing this is to have a larger capacity cylinder which will have a higher capacity to hold air and thus can burn more fuel giving a better performance.However, be warned that a bigger engine also means that it will be less fuel efficient. Since it has to burn a definite amount of fuel to keep running it will consume more fuel even at low speeds when you don't really need that performance.Other ways are also prevalent to increase performance but this is the most primitive way of doing this.However newer ways like turbocharging or increasing the compression ratio by using direct injection (D. I.) are far better methods because they do not compromise much on fuel efficiency.Thus Bigger engine = Better engine doesn't really hold true nowadays with improved technologies that has made smaller engines more powerful while at the same time being fuel efficient!
