    engine swap???

    i've been looking into this for a bit, swapping out the LS1 for something else, by the end of the month my LS1 will be at 100k miles, i noticed how a lot of people like swapping it out for LQ9s/408s/etc.. i want to keep mine as a daily driver and will have some money to play around with soon, i would like to buy the motor used just because it would be cheaper that way but i will buy it new if i have to, i just want something that i can keep as a dd, i'm not planning to do anything major on it except maybe some LTs and Y pipe, i plan to keep it very stock, anyone have any suggestions, and to anyone who has done this swap or a similar one what was the total amount you spent on it $$ labor and parts????

    Save the cash and if your not looking for Big Hp or Cubes just pull your stock ls1 and build it up a bit, forged internals and a small cam should do the trick.
