    Get a LS2 out of a late model GTO and have a better platform, e-Bay is your friend here...

    yes they do we've gone over it already lol and the ls2 doesnt make as much power as an ls6 will.... anyway basham it looks like theyre out at crate engine depot too you may have waited too long. Ur best bet is to call them and see the ls2 they carry is around 3700 when you give them your old engine back and its rebuilt soo yaa... autoparts dealer still shows them in stock for 3800 pm me if you want the link

    holy crap thats price gouging(hopefully the ebay link wont be deleted)... that same motor by the same seller was 3500 a few weeks back I guess he heard the other vendors had no more ls6's and jacked the price. worse comes to worse though I'd email him and offer 3500 he might do it especially since thats what he was selling it for a while back and thats what other people wanted.

    Probably for the LS-7. I know when I looked at SDPC's site and GMPP's site when I was looking for a replacement motor for the GTO, I noticed no listing of the LS-2. Who knows?

    where at?? i looked all over that site and I only saw the ls2 as a rebuilt unit it was 4700 minus a 1200 core so it would be too bad but the ls6 would make more bolt on power and be cheaper. the ls6 was probably discontinued because its no longer used in any vehicles and the ls1 is a more popular hot rodders choice. the ls2 and ls3 are taking its place with the ls3 basically coming in all gm sports cars. our best bet might be the ebay listing
