    I dont believe you. Give us a update when at the very least the sl1 is sitting in the engine bay. Then i might be a believer.

    I find this almost impossible.

    -You'd have to refabricate the whole engine bay
    -It's not going to fit tranverse, and certainly not longitudinal.
    -The Cruze is FWD
    -If you think the think the trans will fit, let alone sustain that kind of power, you're crazy.
    -Axles too
    -Suspension too

    Among many other things.

    With the money you're going to spend to 'try' this project, you can easilt get yourself another GTO..?

    I could understand a northstar swap. Wouldnt be nearly as bad. But this is basicalky gonna require you to buy an impala ss with the FWD 5.3 and swap everything but the motor into the cruze. In my opinion its senseless, but more power to you if you really want to do it.

    Sure. Practical though? Nope.

    I can agree with silverls. If you do it, Ill be a believer and will take a trip out to the OP's garage to see it and congratulate him personally. But the thing most don't understand when they get an off-the-wall idea like this is, its going to require alot, repeat, ALOT, of determination, time, frustration, not to mention money.

    Most don't understand what they're getting into with a project like this. Just saying.
