Oh its definitely possible, it would just take a very very very professional amount of fabrication lol. LS1 balt, now THAT would be a friggin blast.

Haha .. That video is bogus .. they never show the motor .. somebody commented on there that it was probably the guys sound system playing a recording because it got louder as you got closer to the open driver's window..

almost like my sprint 4 door with a 305 in it, eh? People watch for that car now, and cops fear it. They hate it, cause they believe it can go faster than they're cars dare go. That car is a friggin monster!

someone told my friend that chevy motors can be swapped pretty easily and are all intergrated...i thought about this one cause the Balt does have a rather large engone bay but i wouldnt mind putting a V-6 or V-8 in my car but the only car i can think of that has a V-6 or V-8 with a manual trans is the vette....of course it would take alot of fabrication and plenty of money but the impalas come in V-6's but they have automatic trannys and if i were to do a swap for a bigger motor i would want a manual trans

i doubt the cops "fear it". got pics of the conversion? i'm curious to see how you fabbed up a rwd conversion in a car so small that was fwd. i've done a few 350+ swaps in chevettes, but they were already rwd

why would you want to put a v8 in a cobalt?you can make more than enough power with a 4 banger, fwd cars don't need more than 350-400whp, if going to a rwd conversion, go ahead and pull out a $25k loan. or you could just go buy a rwd car and put $5k into it and have 500+hp
