    dont do it, its basically the same thing as your ls1 but its not built with performance in mind, i'm not sure if its all aluminum either, plus you wont feel any more power than the ls1 most likely

    Avoid that deal. The weight of the iron block would negate the minor power gains.

    That block is a good thing though being iron. At least if you start looking to push 800 RWHP.

    Only do it if you are building a drag car where the extra weight up front won't hurt so much, the extra displacement and iron block make for more power capability. Car Craft got 480 hp out of the low-compression six-liter with just headers and the mild GMPP LS1 cam, and the Escalade came with the high compression LQ9. 500 hp sounds easy with bottom-barrel cam, headers, and ECU tune. Just depends on whether you mind the extra weight.

    The iron block "lQ9" That came in the escalae isnt a bad motor but i would agree with above and throw it in your s10, the weight is about 90 pounds difference from a fully dressed ls1. It does have the aluminum heads but it is limited to low to mid range power, its not a high rever like the ls1. From the factory they are rated at about 345 hp and 380 ft pounds. For 500 bucks its not a bad deal.

    You misunderstand slightly. The deal was $500 plus trade the LS1 he already has in his car. Not nearly so good a deal as $500 straight up.

    your right $500 would be nice but he said he'd take $2000 for the motor(hareness & ecu) only

    It would be a good motor to supercharge, if you have that in mind do the trade, I believe their are aftermarket companies that have root blowers for that engine, you will have lower compression heads with the 6ltr just right for supercharging. You will need his computor to go along with the engine.

    I have an LQ9 block in my car. Stock computer.
    Roots charger will fit any LSx. LQ9/LS1/LS2/etc...
    Problem is hood clearance.


    LS1 > LQ9 in stock form.
    $2000 for that motor is a rip. Can get an LS1 for cheaper.

    Spend the coin on upgrades for the engine you already have. You could sell your LS1 block for more than it cost to buy an LQ9 block.
