My 1st LS motor

Dropped by the shop and snapped a couple of pics of my 1st LS motor

Couldn't be happier so I though I'd share, she should go pretty good ..

Old school ...



NEW school

Re: My 1st LS motor

Where did you get the block off plate for the windshield wiper motor hole or did you make it?

Re: My 1st LS motor

Thanks guys .. Steve thats an LS7
Matt, yes I made the plate, and I agree the BBC does look nicer.

I've never driven one of our cars with an LS, so I'll have to let you guys know if giving up the looks for 800 HP and 20 MPG was worth it LOL

Not an LS hater, they are sweet motors, but I always have to laugh when the old style motors are dismissed as "unable" to have similar results. Fuel injection and a blower can be fit to any package.


Just sayin', and either way, should be a lot of fun, enjoy the new bullet!

Re: My 1st LS motor

I jumped on the LS wagon due to making power is a little easier (ie: CHEAPER) than the old SBC and all the while using factory, production parts

And you can dress them up to look old school if you want.

Sean, completely understand what your saying but I didnt really go to the LS7 for more power. The reasons I did it was the following
Modern drivability
Waaaaay less smell (wife hated driving in it) 15 minutes in that car and I stunk
Value ...
And because I simply wanted to build a serious LS car

This is not a debate of BBC vs LS but an interest in the challenges of completing this project and the need to see, feel and experience the results having never driven an LS based pro tpuring car.

I guess we will see in a few months

Steve,
My intent was not to take anything away from your build or the LS platform, your build is going to be sweet I'm sure and the LS is a great modern platform, GM is doing a great job with it.
My only point was they are all internal combustion, and while comparing factory to factory the old platform can't compete, but with modern parts they can all do the same thing right down to modern fuel systems and computer controls.

But the real point is it's what you want, its your car. I personally have no issue with even seeing crossbreeds, cool is cool! I respect the work that goes into them.

Good luck with it and most importantly have fun! Sorry about bringing any debate into the thread, not my intention.
