swaps and traction control

I've got a 2012 auto and I'm thinking about an engine swap. I'm trying to decide LS or hemi. Will either of these swaps permanently disable the factory traction control? I'm thinking the hemi would behave like stock, but unsure about LS. This will be a huge factor in deciding which route to take.

Thanks, Travis

I have an LS in mine and my traction control works .

There is a way to shut down traction control and ABS with a flick of a switch .
I haven't done it yet , but it's on the list .
