Im wanting to engine swap my 2012 CT. Do yall think a LS4 engine would fit? And if so what would I have to change or upgrade additionally?

I've never thought about an engine swap, I've only thought about swapping the trans to the 2013-2015 or something else that gives me paddle-shifters or at least a auto-manual mode of some sort

The LS4 General Motors engine is a 5.3L small block used in GM FWD cars between 2005 and 2009. In stock form, it had about 303 horsepower but could be upgraded to 500+ horsepower. JEGS sells a version with 621 hp for $15,910. Installing the 303 hp version doesn't really give you much more horsepower over what you have now. If you intend to upgrade to 4 or 5 hundred horses you will certainly next need to upgrade the Crosstour transmission, brakes, cooling system and much more. The vehicle is not designed for 500 horses. Unless you are trying to make a very unique Crosstour where money is no object I would not attempt this swap. It will certainly be very costly and take quite some time. Just my opinion.
