LS engine swaps

I see alot of ls and vortech engine swaps done lately in older cars and trucks, is there a link somewhere that breaks down the horsepower and torque figures of the different ls motors and what cars and trucks they come out of ?

Yea, google. Wikipedia also has it.

Btw, most people don't run them exactly as stock so in most cases those numbers don't mean much at all.

Vortech engines are not LS. Very different engines

Many Vortec engines are LS engines. Basically any LS that came out f a truck is a Vortec.
