    LS1/LS6 rebuild ballpark...

    Availability of LS2 or even LS6 block vs LQ4/9. THE LQ wins.

    As for weight penalty. I can tell you mine doesn't even notice it. I have Hotchkiss 1" drop springs and Bilstein shocks. It didn't drop the nose more than a qtr in between my LS1 and the 403 LQ block.

    Yeah, if I can make that power with the LS1/LS6, as long as I dont have a roached bottom end which I shouldn't, I think I will see about rebuilding my block. Should be less confusion. I figure that I will have to buy a new intake and throttle body at that point. I am almost ready to drop it off.
