But for now the primary question I have is how does the LSx engines compare to like a 383 in TQ and power curves??. With the 383's you can build tons of TQ right off idle.Does the LSx engines tend to come into their power curve later in the RPM range??. From what I have read the LSx's you can build alot of HP and get great gas mileage too.Kind of a cake and eat it too thing.The other thing I have read is the 6.0 is a gas hog.

I trust the input from here. It does seem to me there are a number of very knowledgeable engine builders.

Please and thank you in advance.
the LS engines are better in every single way when compared to a sbc. Better torque, better mileage, better power, better durability, everything.
