    If you do the LS6, it can be found a good bit cheaper than 5k.

    Try HERE

    And HERE is an LS1-LS6 swap guide.

    i just think that for another $1500 another 100+wrhp is pretty good. thats 15 dollars per 1HP. how often do you get a chance for that??? i think the only thing better is N20 (as far as $ per HP)

    it comes with a ton of shit, all you need is the oil pan an intake an other stuff off your ls1, but the parts are all interchangeable.

    this is the one im considering if my block is done for, it adds 100 lbs? i think? not sure on that.

    its a 370 in stock form i believe, if not around there. but the stroked 408 see's around 475-530.

    "the lowest ive heard is 475WRHP. i am looking for 500RWHP. i know that MR lous on this site has the same motor and hes making 531RWHP" - Dr.Crash
