    You can't post the fullsize images from Imagestation (see how the URL ends with jpg.orig.jpg? remove the .orig.jpg part).

    Here they are:

    haven't we already played this? and I won?

    and you don't need to know to much about the engine.....all you have to know/see is the intake.

    Definitely not an LT1, LT1s have five cylinder head bolts per cylinder. LS1s have only four, but I have no idea if that's an LS1 or not.

    The first one looks like a LS1 Probably a 5.3 or something. I know someone that has two 5.3s in his garage... one of them has thrown rods.

    Is the 2nd one a buick? I can't really tell from that pic.

    It's definatly a GenIII small block Chevy. More than likely an LS1. You can tell from the coolant passages, the fact that it uses 4 bolts around the cylinders, and also the lifter vally (because I can see the knock sensor in one picture) and finaly you can actualy see the intake in one of the pics as well. This engine is also out of a Corvette. You can tell by the braided fuel line, position of the fluid resevoir, and the top of fender well. Yeah I know my Chevys. :big grin:
