LT1's are very strong engines and are much cheaper than LS1's. Plus parts are pretty cheap. Go with the LT1.

I'm with the other guy, you should go with an LT1, great motors, I had one in my '79 Chevy at one point in time, but decided to revert back to my original 350 and build it up for a mud truck. Catfish around here don't like worms, they're more into liver, but what I use is peanut butter and corn (They seem to love it), put that in one of those things chicks wear, and you should be good (the things they were on their legs, they look see through.)

go with the LT1 and try to get something like a Mezeire electric water pump so it doesnt leak onto your opti

LT1... gotta deal with the opti bullshit. Though they are cheaper.

yea i dont feel like going through all that electronic sh*t on the lt1 so i might just go carb'd smallblock maybe a 377 or attempt to make a 302

Pantyhose?


Edit. BTW, my vote goes for the lt1 too. Altho if you can spring for it, tons of mods are coming out these days for the ls1's.....just sayin, something to look into!
