    most guys in those hemi trucks (like that one) have a great motor in a big heavy truck, now buy that truck short bed standard cab and you have a 15.0 factory truck, now that is preety quick for stock,

    anyone in a lifted dodge hemi with four doooors has nothin to brag about besides bein able to pull a heavy load up hill in low gear

    well not exactly the LQ4 can be 325 stock (C3) it just depends what vehicle, in the 2500 HD i believe they had 300, but again exhaust and intake type make the difference there. escalade came with the LQ9 as well

    97 GMC with 02 LS6 engine

    Here's some more info to ponder:

    4800
    The Vortec 4800 LR4 is a V8 truck engine. Displacement is 4.8 L (4807 cc) with a 96.01 mm bore and 83 mm stroke. It is a de-bored and de-stroked cast iron version of the LS1 small-block from the Corvette with aluminum cylinder heads. It replaced the 5.0 L 5000 L30 for the 2003 full-size vans. The LR4 produces 270-350 hp (201-205 kW) and 285-290 ftlbf (386-393 Nm) of torque. LR4s are manufactured at St. Catharines, Ontario and Romulus, Michigan.

    The LR4 features electronic throttle control and does not need exhaust gas recirculation due to a new, more-powerful computer. The LR4 shares the same block and cylinder heads as the Vortec 5300.Supercharged aluminum versions said to produce 350 HP were considered for the silverado SS but were shelved. Cost and emissions issues were main considerations.

    LR4 applications:

    Chevrolet Express 2500-3500/GMC Savana 2500-3500
    Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra
    Chevrolet Tahoe/GMC Yukon

    L30 applications:

    Chevrolet Express/GMC Savana
    General Motors C/K full-size trucks
    [edit]

    5300
    The Vortec 5300, or LM7/LM4/L59, is a V8 truck engine. It is a stroked (by 9 mm) version of the Vortec 4800 and replaced the 5700 L31 in 2003. L59 denotes a flexible fuel version, while the LM7 is a special low-emissions engine. The L33 is made for the pickup trucks.

    All Vortec 5300s are based on the new Generation III small-block V8. Unlike the all-aluminum LM4 and L59, the LM7 uses a cast iron block. The block and heads are the same as on the 4800 LR4. Power output is 285-295 hp (213-220 kW) and torque is 325-330 ftlbf (441-447 Nm). Displacement is 5.3 L (5328 cc) from 96.01 mm bore and 92.00 mm stroke. Vortec 5300s are built in St. Catharines, Ontario, Romulus, Michigan, and Silao, Mexico.

    LM7 (iron block, low-emmissions) applications:

    Cadillac Escalade
    Chevrolet Avalanche
    Chevrolet Express/GMC Savana
    Chevrolet Silverado 1500-2500/GMC Sierra 1500-2500
    Chevrolet Suburban/GMC Yukon XL
    Chevrolet Tahoe/GMC Yukon
    LM4 (all-aluminum) applications:

    Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT
    GMC Envoy XL
    2004 Chevrolet SSR
    L33 applications:

    Chevrolet Silverado 1500-2500/GMC Sierra 1500-2500
    L59 (flexible-fuel, allowing E85) applications:

    Chevrolet Suburban/GMC Yukon XL
    Chevrolet Tahoe/GMC Yukon
    [edit]

    LH6
    An improved LH6 version with Displacement on Demand will push output even higher. It is a Generation IV small-block and features the improvements found on other Gen4 motors. An early batch of fifty 2005 Saab 9-7X SUVs for the Canada market used this engine with the Displacement on Demand feature disabled.

    LH6 applications:

    2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT/GMC Envoy XL SUVs
    2005 GMC Envoy XUV
    2005 Buick Rainier (without Displacement on Demand)
    2005 Saab 9-7X
    2005 Subaru B9 Casanova SUV (without Displacement on Demand)

    6000

    HO 6000 engine in a 2003 Cadillac Escalade EXTThe Vortec 6000, or LQ4, is a V8 truck engine. It is a bored version of the Vortec 5300. Displacement is 6.0 L (5967 cc) from 101.6 mm bore and 92 mm stroke. It is an iron/aluminum design and produces 300-325 hp (224-242 kW) and 360-370 ftlbf (488-502 Nm). LQ4s are built in Romulus, Michigan and Silao, Mexico.

    LQ4 applications:

    Chevrolet Express/GMC Savana
    Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Pickup, Crew Cab, and Chassis Cab/GMC Sierra 2500 HD Pickup and Crew Cab, Denali, and 3500 Pickup and Chassis Cab
    Chevrolet Suburban/GMC Yukon XL Denali
    Hummer H2 SUT
    GMC Yukon Denali


    HO 6000
    The Vortec HO 6000 or VortecMAX, technically the LQ9, is a special high-output version of the Vortec 6000 V8 truck engine originally designed for Cadillac. This engine was introduced in other truck lines as VortecMAX for 2006. It features high-compression (10:1) flat-top pistons for an extra 10 hp and 10 ftlbf, bringing output to 345 hp (257 kW) and 380 ftlbf (515 Nm). LQ9s are built only in Romulus, Michigan.

    LQ9 Applications:

    2002-2005 Cadillac Escalade
    2002-2005 Cadillac Escalade EXT
    2003-2005 Cadillac Escalade ESV

    2004-2005 GMC Sierra Texas Truck Edition
    2005-2005 GMC Sierra Vortec HO Edition Only [Badging on truck]

    L76
    See also the automotive L76
    The L76 version of the Vortec 6000 features variable cam phasing on both the intake and exhaust sides, though both are linked. It produces 355 hp (265 kW) at 5400 rpm and 365 ftlbf (495 Nm) at 4400 rpm. Production starts in late 2006.

    L76 applications:

    Chevrolet Suburban
    Chevrolet Avalanche
    [edit]
    6200
    The 2007 Cadillac Escalade will debut with a 6.2 L Vortec 6200 (RPO L92) engine. It is an all-aluminum design which, while still a pushrod engine, boasts variable valve timing, a first in a mass-produced non-overhead cam V8 engine. The system adjusts both intake and exhaust timing between two settings. This engine produces 403 hp (301 kW) and 417 ftlbf (565 Nm) in the Cadillac, but inexplicably is only rated at 380 hp and 415 ftlbf in the GMC Denali.

    Applications:

    2007+ Cadillac Escalade
    2007+ GMC Yukon Denali/Denali XL

    8100
    The Vortec 8100 (RPO L18) is a V8 truck engine. It is a redesigned Chevrolet Big-Block engine and was introduced with the 2001 full-size pickup trucks. It retains the same bore centers as the old 7.4 L big-blocks, but stroke was upped by 9.4 mm to reach 8.1 L (8128 cc) for a total of 107.95 mm bore and 111 mm stroke. It is an all-iron engine (block and heads) with two valves per cylinder. Power output ranges from 225 hp to 340 hp (168 kW to 254 kW) and torque from 350 ftlbf to 455 ftlbf (475 Nm to 617 Nm). Vortec 8100s are built in Tonawanda, New York.

    L18 Applications:

    Chevrolet Avalanche
    Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 2500HD & 3500 (option)
    Chevrolet Suburban/GMC Yukon XL (option)
