Luke's VT Commodore is a little different from most. Instant performance has been acheived by swapping the factory 5.7L LS1 in favour of a stock GM Racing 454ci LSX V8 crate engine from the states backed by a Hasty Autos built Powerglide transmission. The car has come alive as a geniune 10-second street car. Best time to date is a 10.60 at 130mph.

Livernois Motorsports 2010 Camaro GMPP LSX 454 Engine Swap
Our 2010 Camaro shop car has been through several different stages of modifications, but for the most recent round of mods we wanted to try something a little different than just bolt on's.
We installed a GM Performance Parts LSX 454 crate engine, but before it went into the car we removed the camshaft and installed our stage 1C "stealth" camshaft.
The plan was to have a car that had stock like drivability with the OEM converter, with little to no change in idle characteristics or sound.
We were going to use stock Exhaust manifolds, but they wouldn't fit so we used a set of ARH shorty headers in their place along with OEM cats a Corsa catback.
It sounds like a stock Camaro with a catback when standing next to it. From the rear there is a small hint of a mild lope, but most people think it's stock.
