    New Engine

    Hey guys,
    my ws6 just turned 85,000 and I am think of getting into a new engine.... have dreams of stuffing an ls7 in there, haha, but realistically what should I be looking at?? (i.e. LS1 or LS6 and build it up, or could an LS7 get in there?)

    i would say go with a stroked ls2 402 those things sure are nasty and they are a much better price than the ls7 plus with the money you save by doing the ls2 you can build it up to more hp and tq than the ls7

    talk to djvaly about the 402 he would know more about it. but honestly 85k isnt enough miles for you to feel a power loss so you really could just stroke your motor... but a stroked ls2 would be sweet.

    85k and you want a new engine?

    how about a heads/cam package and some suspension. if it makes you sleep better you can always crack her open and get newer of the remedial shit.....

    Thanks Lance for the info. I will definitely look into the 402.
    I dont want a new motor right now, and I definitely do not feel any power loss anywhere. The engine feels just as strong as the day I got it. But most people i talk to tell me that if I want to start building up the motor, at some point I am gonna start to kill parts if I try to push it to far. I was thinking more along the lines of building a motor over next winter, by that time it will be over 100k.
