    I'll throw something new out there. if you are going to do an engine swap why not just get the ls7? It produces more hp than the ls2 and it shouldn't be too much more expensive. Thats what I'd do if I was gonna swap.

    An LS7 costs $12,000.

    ok so I did a little research before posting something stupid again

    LS2
    Gross Horsepower (SAE net) 400 @ 6000 rpm
    Gross Torque (SAE net) 400 lb.-ft. @ 4400 rpm
    retails at $7,859.00

    LS7
    505 horsepower @ 6200 rpm
    475 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4800 rpm
    retails at $17,400

    I made a dumb assumption. Sorry guys. It'd still be nice to get one though

    So...
    i was told that i could do ls3 (2008 vetts are running these) engine swap for a total of 9k. Seems a bit but i am not sure of all the alternatives. I saw in some Trans Am mag that the ls7 (sweet ass by the way) was running for 12 thousand. I have 98k miles on my engine and within the next year or so was looking to put a new one in there. MTI in Houston said that was the price of the swap. OVERPRICED???? seems like it but what should i go with then?

    An ls3 for 9.5k is useless, it only makes 30 more hp that the ls2 but costs double. If your gonna do an engine swap and want the most bang for your buck, get a custom block and start from there, you can get a good ass 402 block for under 500, then get forged or just some good racing internals, 1200-3000, then some custom heads or jsut get some port and polished ls6 heads for 500, cam 380, valve train 1200. intake manifold 750. thast about 4500- around 7k for a motor that is making anywhere from 500-600hp at the crank and 450-550rwhp.

    LS1 vs LS6 vs LS2 Vs LS3
    First off the LS6 is a direct bolt in no changes needed except for tuning
    The LS2 out of a GTO Trailblazer SS or CTSV is also a direct bolt in except for tuning and a small harness change due to placement of Cam and Knock sensors
    LS2 out of Vettes use a different reluctor wheel 58X vs the old 24X
    All LS3's are same as above 58X reluctor
    LS2's have more potential cause its virtually and LS6 but with more cubes.
    An LS2 with an LS6 intake, Cam swap, and all the usual support gear can be a real nice combo for a Street Car. JMO
    Another thing is the LS2 will except the L92/L76 set up which is pretty close to the same heads and Intake as the on LS3.

    If you want to go with one of those motor i would say the ls2 with cam, port and polished heads and a intake manifold and bold ons you will be at 450rwhp no problem. Thats 450rwhp that can also be used as a daily driver
