    The LT1 is the 2nd generation GM Small block v8.

    Gen 1 GM Small block v8 283, 305, 350, 400 and a few others.
    Gen 2 GM Small block v8 LT1/4 - very very similar to Gen 1.
    Gen 3 GM Small block v8 LS1/6 - Completely redesigned engine.
    Gen 4 GM Small block v8 LS2/7 - pretty much the same as Gen 3. Only minor differences.

    You need to get the LS1/6 Performance book off of ebay.

    lol, this thread makes me feel like a veteran. free mods are things you can do to make the car faster for free, but the gains are debatable. the only free mod gaurunteed to work is weight reduction. the others are descreening the maf (mass air fow), tb bypass (throttle body), and a few others i cant think of.
    best advice i can give you: use the SEARCH button

    still confused so let me help you and some others here...

    the TPI 305 and 350 are 3rd gen engines.

    4th gen engine are either the LT1 (93-97) or the LS1 (98-02) engines.

    the LSx engine designation refers to the block. the LSx series engines is farther well developed across the board and is an all alloy engine (block and heads are aluminum).

    the LT1 was based off the classic GM small block 350 for 40+ years. Classic v8, pushrod, cast iron block w/ aluminum heads.

    that should clear up a few issues that some of you are getting confused with. Unless a 4th gen owner swapped a LS1 into a car made from 93-97 you will have the LT1 engine and nothing else. same with a 3 gen owner, no Lt1 or Ls1 unless it was swapped in.

    Also only the 79-93 mustang was the Fox body. Its sn95 from 94-04.
    Correct, very good info. There seems to be some misinformation flaoting around in this thread.

    I believe I understand what you are saying, but the way you wrote it, sounds like you are saying the LSx series engines were in 3rd gen F-Bodies. To avoid that confusion, its usually posted as "3rd gen" or "4th gen" when referring to the cars themselves, and Gen I,II, or III when referring to the engines

    what was confusing about what I wrote? seems pretty straight forward to me.

    I had an old 95 z28 camaro (for 6 years) and it had the LT1 engine. I sold it for a 2000 SS and my SS has the LS1 engine. Any 93-2002 Camaro or Firebird is considered a 4th gen car. only difference was in 98 they redesigned the exterior of the car (mainly front end) to fix ground clearance issues and that's why 98 and newer 4th gen cars have the more rounded front ends. in 1997 they redesigned the interiors of the cars that then became the standard for all camaros and firebirds respectively from 98-02. all 1997 4th gen Camaros and Firebirds still had the LT1 engine and in some rare but documented cars they had the LT4 engine (still cast iron block, alum. heads.

    If there is anything you would like for me to clairfy more, let me know. I have been a 4th gen f-body owner for 8 years now...

    if you are talking about the generations for the engines then the info that you posted above about the 4 generations of chevy small blocks that information is correct and true. If you are talking about Camaro/Firebird generations then yes it is possible for a 3rd gen car to have a 1st gen v8 engine in it (305 TPI, 350) though they are not referred to as LT series engines in 3rd gen cars. the reason the LT1 in 4th gen Camaros/Firebirds is talked about so much is because when Chevy designed the 4th gen they also 'overhauled' the LT1 engine and made it a reverse flow engine, thus attempting to make the LT1 in those cars superior to previous small block engines. Any 4th gen LT1 owner can tell you that's not the case with the opti-spark location, reverse flow cooling, and the lovely oil leaks from the rear main and valve covers. That's why when the LSx series came out in 97 (corvettes only) it was and is a far more superior small block v8 than the LT1 or any chevy small block engine in history. The Ls1 came standard in 98 in both camaros and firebirds...

    I know what engines came in what. I mean for the people that don't.

    They are getting the generations of the engines mixed up with the generations of the cars.

    Some people still find it hard to believe that the same 350 (gen 1 SBC) that was used in the 1950s and 1960s was still used in GM cars and trucks all the way till the mid 90s! lol
