    Good point but if he is going to mod it, there goes that warranty.

    listen

    Listen hotrod... the LS6 and the LS1 are all LS BASED SMALL BLOCKS...
    The differences being in the cam/heads valvetrain components, and the intake... other than that, the two engines are twins. The block castings are slightly different, but they perform the same and have the same internals.
    If you would just beef up the LS1 you have with say, a set if cylinder heads and cam, you would trounce the stock ls6, and that isnt even with the intake. With a pair or patriot or similar heads, a respectable comp cam, and the Comp/FAST intake manifold, the ls1 has been shown publicly to put up over 500 horsepower at the crank... this is information from chevy high performance.

    You cant beat modding your own engine for the money, and the only way for you to possibly make more power, is to get into the block and/or ditch it for a larger displacement model with a built/ balanced rotating assembly, and to match it all together so that they compliment each other, instead of fighting each other. Do your homework, and you will be rewarded with more horsepower than you can spend, with much more cash leftover in the end, and the bragging rights you want...

    not to mention, have you even checked to see what shop prices are for installing just a cam? One of the local rod shops that I frequent charges 1000 dollars to install a cam on your car... in labor only. And that is comparable to alot of shops in the 417 area at least. The thing is, you cant just pay for the parts themselves, you also need the proper instalation support, such as fluids, bearings, hardware, and even shop labor if you cant install them yourself... so your budget should probably be doubled, just for the man hours needed to install your new LS2 with the Comp Cam, and AFR 225's...
    DO YOUR HOMEWORK!!!
    you might just scare yourself into driving, gasp... a very respectable, STOCK LS1 and find yourself content.

    And doing the work yourself... well you better have the tools or some meney to spend on tools.
    Another thing; doing the work yourself is more headache than you think. I am doing a head R&R right now and it is way more than I thought it was going to be. Taking out an engine is 4 times that.

    while you're at it. just plug in an LS7 engine. super charge it Vortech+aftercooler, do full exhaust. you'll do 550+ rwhp and 99% of the people out there can't mess with you.

    Actually swapping an engine is easier than doing heads. More physical, but less nuts, and bolts to remove and lose than swapping a motor.
