    I get just about every thing on E-Bay ! Here's one ( long block ) which every thing should bolt right up from your old motor.

    It's just a different stroke + bore... Might have to adjust the tune a little... And confirm what relucter wheel is on the crank. They changed them on the higher years...

    I wouldn't spend 7k on a LS2...there's other options out there that'll give you a lot more hp/tq.

    I have an LQ9 block stroked to 402.

    383 LS1's have issues with the wrist pins hitting the pistons. Avoid the 383 LSx.

    What would need to be done to make a LS3 work in a LS1 car?

    well....the LS2 is is 400 hp....the LS6 is 400 hp

    the LS6 is an LS1 with a few different parts

    i would say get the few parts you need to make your LS1 an LS6....

    intake, cam, pistons...

    i could be wrong so others can back me up if im right

    It really depends on future plans.

    The LS2 gives more room to grow since it is a 6.0L motor.
    If you are looking for HP...get a build motor. Probably get a forged 402/408 longblock for $7K if you look and get the cheaper parts (which are still better than stock).

    about getting the extra parts, i have 110k miles on it i looked at the 408 blocks, im on a budget and time cause i dont know when my current engine is gonna go the piston rings are going bad im not looking for insane numbers but i eventually want a high 10-11sec car and can drive it everyday. I live in mn. any where between 400-550 rwhp would be fine! i want to have this all done by the end of july i want the engine in by july not that much hp i know thats gonna take a lil while
