    LY-7 Bluprints / Dimensions / Measurements?

    Hi All,

    I own a www.StalkerV6.com (Lotus 7 Replica) currently powered by a 95 Camaro 60 degree V-6. While this motor has PLENTY of power, I'll, likely, upgrade over the Winter.
    The designer is fabbing an "Upgrade Package" to allow use of the GM 3800 Supercharged motor (a 90 degree V6) but I'd like to investigate the viability of the Caddy V-6 in my application.
    Search as I may, I've been unable to come up with detailed photos, blueprints or other exterior dimensions for the motor.

    Can anyone supply a link?

    TIA, Jim www.LotusV6.com (Site currently off-line)

    Thanks Low,

    I'm thinking (if it would FIT) that it would be a pretty good motor stone stock. However, I'm like Butterfly McQueen here, "I don't know nothin' bout' computer modulles". thus, the preliminary investigation

    Still, hope I can get something a lot more detailed.

    Perhaps I'll just contact Cadillac directly.

    BTW: These things are already showing up in junkyards. Pricing is comparable to late 90s supercharged 3800s with far fewer miles.
