    LS1 - 346 cubes
    LS6 - 346 cubes (same basic block as the LS1, with some added features and better flowing heads and larger cam)
    LS2 - 364 cubes
    LS7 - 427 cubes

    You don't want to bore out the LS1's without sleeving. Even then, it requires stroke and bore to get to 427.
    Sleeves are very expensive.

    They are very similiar.
    The LS6 block has better oiling and cooling passages.

    Ohh I left that out but with those 5K i saved I can easily upgrade that on my Ls1 No?

    sorry to hijack but utimiately I want to FI it wether it be a procharger or an APS kitt. Im looking at beefing up my current block, or buying the LSX block and building it from there.

    Why when you look up parts for the ls1 it always says 99-02 whats the main difference in the 98 that makes it different

    Main difference is the perimiter valve cover bolts. But here are most all differences.

    If you don't forge the internals, they are basicly the same strength. Block wise, the aluminum LSx blocks can handle a ton of power when built correctly.
