I'm trying to hone in on my drive train for my 2nd gen Camaro. I have a 383 stroker on the engine stand right now and a 700r4 core that needs a rebuild. I am bouncing between keeping the 383 and trying to rebuild the 700r4 myself with a monster transmission rebuild kit or a b&m trans kit. OR There is a salvage yard in town that has a L94 6.2liter out of a GMC truck with 57k miles. They are looking for 3k for the motor (it runs no issues) and from what I have read its very close to the L99 (different intake, oil pan, accessory mounts). I'd pair the motor with a 6spd out of a 2012 Camaro that has similar mileage. With this route there would be other costs to support the LS motor - radiator, fuel lines, computer/ecu. The rear end is locked in at this point (Currie 9" with 3.70 gears). Goal is a fun/reliable street car that I can take on short road trips to the car shows in the area. Off hand the LS combo seems like it might be the more reliable route. I built the 383 nearly a decade ago and so far it runs fine on the test stand - it is not a roller cam which is a downside of this block.
