Here's an engine swap you may like.

The LT5 is among a trio of new crate engines Chevrolet Performance will introduce this month at the 2018 SEMA show in Las Vegas. The others include a ZZ6 5.7-liter V-8 and an L96 6.0-liter V-8, with the three new additions bringing the tally of V-8 crate engines offered by Chevrolet Performance to almost 50 units.

Rather than just show the engines on at a stand, Chevrolet Performance decided to build some custom rides around them. The LT5 will feature at SEMA in a 1973 Chevrolet Chevelle Laguna whose hood design mimics the one on the Corvette ZR1 as a nod to its powertrain. The car has also been fitted with front and rear spoilers that pay homage to the Chevelle Laguna's NASCAR racing heritage.

To display the ZZ6 V-8, Chevrolet Performance has picked a 1967 Chevrolet C10 pickup truck, and for the L96 it picked a 1978 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck.
