Reverse Swap: This 2011 Camaro Has a 6.6-Liter Diesel V8

The LS swap feels as old as time. If a vehicle has an engine bay, someone will try to fit a small block into it. And that’s why this 2011 Camaro for sale on eBay is so backwards, and so interesting.

The unfortunate victim of some front-end damage, this 2011 Camaro SS has seen its gas engine replaced by the 6.6-liter Duramax V8 from Chevy 3500 HD. The brute of an engine sends its power to the rear wheels through an Allison automatic transmission and all of the creature comforts remain.

Seriously, the heat, air conditioning, the head-up display, and even the remote start all still work. The oil temp gauge and the traction control do not, however.

The ad doesn’t say how much power the engine is making, though the 660 lb-ft it made for duty in the 3500 seems ample.

At time of writing, the bid for this car is up to $17,100 with just 2 days left to go.
