a LS3...... hmmmm.....

Victory Red SS has quite a project going on with huge/major conversions....

You might be better off have the 05 engine built/forged and dropping a GT35R Turbo in it and then go SRT-4 hunting....

dropping a ls3 into a cobalt is it possible hell anything is possible but the mods you will have to do will be absolutly crazy

the subframe on these cars will not subport the power it will twist as soon as you hit the gas

you will be better off buying a corvette rolling chasis and just dropping a cobalt body onto it alot less work might be more expensive but will work

check out civette on youtube same concept
