Where Should I Look Into If I Want An Engine Swap?

So I am currently looking into getting a V6 Camaro, but years down the road I want to swap the engine into a V8, something like the SS engine with maybe a bit more torque and hp, (500-550 range) what company or website should I be looking into? I will ask for help from any suggestions into what the best forced induction and mods to it will be later down the road. Also any companies or websites that can do custom work? Specifically, I am trying to add a dual mode exhaust onto my camaro with the valves. Any suggestions and info will help.

You say you’re looking into getting a V6 Camaro. Then you say you’re trying to add a dual-mode exhaust. Do you already have a Camaro?

My advice is to wait until you can afford what you want. Or buy what you can afford with the idea of trading it in later for a V8. The cost and complexity of an engine swap on these cars is enormous.

I agree, this is a case where you'd be better off waiting for the V8
