    what are your plans for the car. if you want just a replacent motor and have no plans for it then just stick with an ls6 replacement. they have gotten pretty cheap. if your looking for a motor to build up there is a bit of info in this thread.

    LS1 or 6.0L for my 2000 Camaro

    check that thread out. lots of people with more info than i have but there is some useful stuff in there. and the difference between the lq4 in the other thread and lq9 you speak of is pretty much cam and some valvetrain parts. lq9 has and ls1 cam in it. lq4 is a bit smaller.
