    I have no clue, but Just to throw another idea in. I was thinking about this.

    1992+ Camaro/Vette/Impala SS "LT1" 383 stroker motor. | eBay

    My guess is it would be a little cheaper on the install. Plus 410ft lbs sounds good to me!

    It isnt a horrible price. Is the price for a crate LS1 engine or a used engine? Also depends on how many new parts are included with the install.

    if it sounds too good to be true it usually is. Unless its family, then they're probably just buzzed when they agreed to it lol
