Dumb question again
I know those has been asked a bunch of times maybe we should make this a sticky and change the title but I always get mixed up with number difference between an LT1 and LS1. Now that I finally have an LT1 (M6) I am trying to figure out what I have. LS1 is usually 350 to the crank and around 300 to the wheels right? An an LT1 is either 285 or 315 to the crank? If someone can please help tell me again and maybe make this a sticky that would be great.

Uh, I believe factory ratings are something like this:
93-95 LT1 - 275 crank hp
96-97 LT1 - 285 crank hp
98 LS1 - 305 crank hp
Other year LS1's - 325 crank hp
These were just factory ratings, not what everyone experiences. But yes, some have dynoed their stock LS1's to 300+hp at the wheels.

96-97 SS cars were rated at 305hp. I believe some LT1 Firehawks may have been rated at 310hp, although I'm not positive.
01-02 LS1 cars were 310hp, and 01-02 SS and Firehawk was 325hp. 98-00 SS/Firehawk were 320hp.

LT1 Firehawks were rated 315hp at the crank. Their mid 13 second runs indicated that number was legit.

Ratings mean nothing when you start modding...

All I have is a stock M6 96 Z28 with true duels from headers back

You like the true duals huh . I tried them, but they got annoying (SLP 1-3/4 Long Tubes/ORX/Bassani's). Single system ever since.

Well it came with it so i couldnt argue, better then stock and it sure does sound mean as hell. I think I am going to aim for sponership from borla exhuast is not I am just going to keep em, and just get a pair of headers.
