    Everyone says the LS2 heads are LS6 heads,,,,well ya kinda,,,but not completely. You mentioned the hollow stem valves with sodium filled exhaust valves earlier in this post,,,LS6 only stuff. I could say my fathers 02 3/4 ton truck with the 6.0 litre has LS6 heads too,,,because they too are patterned off of the LS6 port deimensions, d shaped exhuast ports etc....but the combustion chamber is much larger,,,and no hollow stem valves. Oh well.

    One thing I cannot get passed though is this LS6 engine price. I checked with my dealer a few weeks ago while checking into this and they confirmed that this is indeed a remanufactured engine for $2999. Whether it is or not I am still up in the air,,,I haven't laid my eyes on one,,,and it would have to be disassembled to be sure. But it still sounds like a great deal and I wouldn't let that shy me away from it. I have been half tempted to buy one now and stick it in the corner of the garage (before they are not available anymore) and wait for the day my car needs it. I just have to convince my wife that I need it
    the LS-2 and LS-6 share the same castings in the heads. but the valves are different as you pointed out firebirdjones. I think the valve train is pretty much the same except for the valves. Now here is the weird thing I drove both an LS-6 vett and an LS-2 vet.. The LS-6 vett pulled really hard off the line lots of torque and handle really well.. As with the LS-2 vett. it didn't seem to pull off the line that hard but once it was up to speed watch out. What I mean by that is the LS-2 vett would spank the LS-6 on the freeway. it pulled harder in 3rd and 4th than the LS-6 did on the freeway.. either way both motors are good.. The only reason I would go with an LS-2 is that it has a bigger bore 4".. compared to 3.90". You could outfit it with some LS-7 heads or the L92 heads with an L76 intake.. Now thats some power.. It would be just about the same if not more than the LS-7..

    *SIGH* This is really starting to get old.........It's a NEW MOTOR okay! Just ask any of the guys in this forum who have done this swap. They put that disclaimer on every single motor they sell!!!!!!!!!! Maybe I should post mt manifest showing that it's a brand new engine. Can I get some help from all the guys out there who have already done with swap too...Brian, are you there?

    If I remember correctly the LS6 block came in most of the later production '01SS and some '02 as well, mine included. GM was changing the casting method used for the LS1, so they used the LS6 block for several months. One of the major differences is that the LS6 had openings above the mains that allows quicker movement of the air below the psitons as the cylinders come down, this allowed increased piston speed. Photos are available in GM High Performance a coulpe of years back.
