My car has an automatic transmission.

Unfortunately, Your Mechanic does not perform engine replacements or engine swaps. While I’m sure it can be done with the right shop and deep enough pockets, it might be simpler to swap a V8 that was available in the Camaro from the factory, like an SS engine. Your best source of information may be online Camaro forums to see if anyone else has attempted this swap or can maybe direct you to someone who has or is willing to take it on.
