Hello, thanks for your question about your 2011 Camaro. To replace your existing engine, interchanges include the 2010 Camaro and the 2010-2011 Cadillac CTS. If you use a larger engine, which of course is heaver, you will have to modify the vehicle’s suspension. Also, the PCM and your vehicle’s electrical harness would not be compatible. It is relatively easy to just repair your existing engine or put in a re-manufactured engine compared to installing an engine from another model.
