    maybe rebuilding this LS1

    Me and 3 of my friends pulled my LS1 today and started taking it apart... after spending 3-4 hours and 2 cases of MGD 1 liter of Dewars and a carton of marlboro lights... the engine is in fairly decent condition... we used wire brushes and carb cleaner to remove all the build up... cylinders 2 3 4 6 need new sleeves...i'm really considering resleeving and building this engine... it would be cheaper to resleeve it and than to build and engine for scratch whats ya'll opinions???

    I don't know what your plans for the motor are (stock or performance) but it sounds like you have the perfect opportunity to knock all the sleeves out and go with larger ones to add more cubes

    thats what i was thinking... i'm really unsure what i want to do with the motor... i've got my tt ls2... i know i don't want to do single turbo or supercharger... so i'm thinking all motor or another tt which would be kinds lame...

    No, the money in machine work and general labour you will pay to re-sleeve you ls1 will cost more than if you just started on a different foundation.

    Look around, LQ4 and LQ9 blocks are everywhere and are great blocks. You get a weight penalty of about 88 pounds because of the iron block, but you get 6.0 L instead of 5.7 .

    Thats the route I would go, hell, you could find a stock LQ4/9 that still runs great and spend your money on a cam package and bolt on's if you already havnt. Thts my 2 cents.
