    what are your goals with the new motor and how much can you spend?
    personally I'd rebuild what you have now.... there isn't much of a difference between the Ls1 and Ls6 blocks.
    I'd go with a good set of CnC ported Ls6 heads if you have the extra money spring for the TEA ported Trickflow heads.
    ported Ls6 oil pump or hi-volume pump and if I'm correct you can go as big as a 224 114lsa cam
