My buddy just picked one up a few days ago. Soon as he gets more money we will start working on it for his Camaro. He wants to go twin turbo's or a big super charger.

I wish I was running one! I guess that will be my next project. I had the privledge of driving a 05 vette with a ls2/auto (I wish it was stick) last week. I work for a used car dealership and my boss picked one up for a customer and he let me try it on. All I can say is wow it put a big smile on my face

The titanium inletvalves cant take much heat, and the pistons are hypereutectic, with an cr of 11:0, so these parts must change. But that is gonna be nice.

ls engines

Hey, I dont know how many of the people on this site run ls engines but I can tell you nation wide there are a lot. We have installed dozens of ls1, ls6 and ls2 engines for people all over the country, from California to New York. most of these installs were in street rods. Also I think out of all the late model EFI packages we install, the ls engines are the most simple, and the biggest bang for the buck out there. By the way our shop car is a 1931 chevy all steel coupe that we drag race. powered by a ls6 with a tourbo 350 behind it, of course it's far frome stock but we love it and it earns a lot of respect from the carbourated folks.

I am installing an incresing number as well, but they are pretty expensive to ship over here, and many sellers dont bother the hazzle.
Exelent light weight, low price engine. I am using them in stead of the smallblock fords i used before. Still making porsche flat six turbo“s.
