    I like your taste in cars. Your taste in motors(at least of the small block variety) seems lacking though. :ugh:

    LSX camaros are a dime a dozen, if you want a LSX based car go buy one. Oh wait... That explains everything.

    You couldn't POSSIBLY be biased could you. :hsugh:

    :rofl: I don't own anything LSx based. But it's hard to beat the performance straight out of the box of an LS motor.

    Of course LSx camaros are a dime a dozen. Camaros in general are a dime a dozen and GM's newest, "hottest" mill is always going to be swapped in by all the guys wanting to ride the wave.

    New LS1 350hp 365tq $5039
    New ZZ4 355hp 405tq $4044

    LSX conversion on a first gen or classic car typically cost around 15k at the end of the day, whereas the "old school" sbc is a simple drop in.

    Parts needed for LSX swap:

    Front drive accessory drives (PS, Alt, AC and all pulleys) GM: $900 After
    market $2600

    Electrical: Bigstuff3 $1800- $2200, Fast XFI $2200, GM $2000

    Exhaust: $700 - $3,000

    Fuel tank w/ pump, lines and filters (EFI setup) $ $2,000

    Transmission: GM T56: Used $1500, ATS $3600, Gforce $4,000, Automatic $ naw.

    Transmission mount, T56kit (ATS) $300

    Motor Mount plates ATS $125.00.

    drive shaft: $300

    Good aluminum radiator $ 1,200

    You starting to see the picture yet?

    There are much cheaper ways to do an lsx swap, most people could do it for a fraction of that price unless

    yup and at the end of the day it all adds up to a 45k+ first gen camaro...

    shit adds up... QUICK. whether you build it in your garage, or whether you pay a mechanic. The real difference is build time. :o

    :rofl:

    Yeah, I do.

    Why would you buy a brand new LS? Build one for thousands cheaper. Get a JY motor, or an entire car, for necessary swap parts like tank, accessory drive, computer, wiring, trans, pedals, etc. So, other than that you'd need mounts? Exhaust you'd need anyways.

    Meh, I'm not trying to bandwagon the LSx but it's insanely easy to get tons of power out of, which you'd have to up the displacement on a classic Gen I motor. Like, say putting a 502 in. :p

    All things being equal, I'd rather have the LS1 :dunno:

    They make mods for them too, and it's a better engine overall than the older small blocks :dunno:
