    I think it's great, the engines are very availible and resonably priced. I'm thinking of putting a Holley on the LS1 and throw it into my '76 GMC stepside and put the LS6 into my T/A.

    I'm a ford guy and I think that lsx motors is older old school rides is cool. It will b even more cooler if u can do fuel injection and overdrive tranny (auto or 6speed).

    Couldn't afford the LSx in the 87 for now.. so for now its getting an LT!/6-speed conversion.. then maybe later down the road we'll see.. but I love the idea.

    Hell yeah!

    LSx in an older car is way cool man. Lets see some pics!

    I would have kept the computer and injection but thats just me.

    The new Generation of Engine is so far superior over what came in it I can see no wrong.

    I plan on putting one in my Boat which was made in the '70s and has a 350 marine engine currently.

    96 TA WS6 with LS1/Trans

    Anyone interested in my conversion? Im currently putting a LS1/Auto Trans in my 96 TA WS6. A good majority is done, but there is a little left to do. I was thinking about taking pics of what I have already done, and info on what I've learned about my conversion and the differences between the LT1's and LS1's that I know of so far.

    Sweet....didn't know the terminology for them. My old man bought a brand new 84 SS years ago......hence my infatuation w/ them. They are my favorite GM body style.
