Hey guys I just ordered a 2009 Colorado with the 5.3 300 HP V-8. I know this is a LS1 derived motor. Anybody have an info/specs on this? Do they call it a LS1 in the Colorado or something else?

I seen one in a book lastnight in Wal-Mart and they called it a Colorado SS and it said powered by a LS1. So it might be.

I think it is called LM7. Or at least it was.

They have the ls-1 style cathedral heads. the block is different w/ shorter stroke and smaller bore, but no it is not what you would call an ls-1.

what kind of deal did you get on it if you don't mind me asking? I am about to have to turn in my 07 tundra V8 and Chevy seems to want more for the colorado V8's than what I paid for my 07 Tundra 4 door V8 back in 07. Just want to know how much room they have from sticker price.
