Hey Chris, a few comments on this. The article says it’s easier to install than a dry sump LS7. I don’t think it would be any easier to install than the LS376/525. Probably the same. To use this engine in an SLC you’ll need to understand which water pump and accessory belt line it uses. Preferably a Corvette belt line which is shallower than a Camaro belt line. Although I think you can make the Camaro work, but will have less room for cooling tubes. You would also need to change the oil pan to a shallow corvette oil pan for use in an SLC. I can also vouch that dry sump install is more expensive and will take a good amount of time and effort to lay it all out and plumb it.Anyone have any insight (or opinions) on the new GM LS7 LS427/570 crate engine? 570HP/540TQ, with wet sump oiling. More power and easier to install than say the LS376/525 package. Sounds like the LS7 is a little heavier though.

Stellantis Hurricane I6 Hemi ReplacementAutoweek
"Stellantis propulsion chief Micky Bly says the Hurricane will work well in every engine bay currently occupied by a Hemi, from Dodge Challengers and Jeep Grand Cherokees to Ram 1500 pickups and Chrysler 300s. The engine is intended for north-south installations in rear-drive vehicles . . . "

"The new I6's advantages go beyond basic power output. Every Hemi family engine currently in production is based on an iron block design, so they're heavy. The aluminum-block I6 shaves weight off the total engine package, even if some of that gets added back thanks to the turbos and their associated plumbing. The standard-output I6 weighs 430 pounds, Stellantis engineers told us; the high-output adds just another 11. Fully dressed 5.7-liter V8s are in the 550-560-pound ballpark, and 6.4-liters close in on 600 pounds.
" . . . the standard output Hurricane measures 33.4 inches x 28.7 inches x 32.7 inches. The high-output checks in at 33.9" x 29.0" x 33.4"."
