    LS motors if taken care of will last forever. So I would have to agree, take it to a trustworthy shop when you do the install and have them look the internals of the motor over. Probably a good time to replace all your gaskets, plugs, wires, and fluids. Good luck!

    And hey... worst case scenario, if the engine blows, an LQ9 stroker sounds pretty good.

    High mileage LS1's hold up great with a head and cam packages. Just don't add FI and expect it to like it!

    how hard is it to take the ls1 from 346 to a 383? how much $$$ are you lookin at over a reg. rebuild with beefed up inners for the 346 ?

    I suggest not putting that 383 stroker in your caramo from an older generation. The potential that the LS motor has is by far greater than the older style engines! There is so much you can do with them
