    Im retarded but from what I get he swapped out the ls1 for an ls6 right?? I have a buddy who said he just added on ls6 parts and thats what makes it an ls6. Do these seem like reasonable upgrades?? What does an ls6 block cosist of or doing????

    from what i heard some Ls1's came with ls6 blocks/intake, but you would have to check the vin number, im not sure what number corresponds to the block, eithor do a google on it or someone on here should know. Are there any headers installed on that? thats a mild cam so its not too much more HP over stock, id wager you will probably see an increase of 75 hp or so, if i were to guess maybe right around 400 hp. just a guess though.
