nope never been done /s

check the engine swap threads. be warned tho you will spend +15k$ and it still wouldn't run right. just save the time and money and go buy a camaro

also give the new owners thread a read

I think someone on Reddit was asking the same thing. Wonder if you are the same person.

If you are gonna do a swap, then you can get a shell with a broken engine for around $1k.

There are a lot of types of LS engines out there as well... And a swap will never be economical. Prepare about $15k before you start.
