    6.0 vs LS1

    I have been looking for a LS1 to put in my 1970 nova, and recently I ran across a 6.0L out of a newer chevy pickup. My question is what is the difference between the two, and if I used this 6.0L would it sound the same as an LS1 and are readly available to buil one of these motors up for a turbo set up. If all else fails can anyone tell me where I can get a decent used LS1 to build in the houston, TX area. THanks

    Re: 6.0 vs LS1

    to start with an 6.0l is rated at 345 horse while most ls1 are at 320. the heads are better on a 6.0. the will both fit in the same place. all bracket are same. the ls1 is 350 cubic inches and the 6.0 is 364, so already u have a 14 more cubic inches to play with

    I think that it might be a little harder to find parts for a 6.0 and it might be more expensive.. but that is my thoughts

    The parts are all the same.
    Only difference...block is iron on the 6.0L, and the alternator bracket is punched different on the 6.0L.

    I am putting a stroked 6.0L block into my Trans Am here very soon. Just gotta get all the little parts.
