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

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.2008 Trailblazer SS
