Default 2010 L96 Engine Issue

Hello, and thanks for viewing this thread!

I am having a hard time locating information about the 2010 L96 Engine..
I have the opportunity to pick up a complete L96 and 6l90E combo but there is like NO information out there for upgrading it HP wise..

I also found some conflicting info where the L96 could be a 5.3 or a 6L the 6L puts out 323HP and the 5.3 is like 280HP..

I want to put the set up in a 1970 Monte Carlo

GM only list the motor as a marine engine.. This one came out of a 2010 Savanna Van. There is only 2 miles on the motor and trans..

Any assistance with information would be a huge help in making up my mind on weather to buy it or not.

Thanks.

I cannot tell you a lot about the engine or upgrades for it. But what I can tell you is that it is a VVT engine. I think it'* the same setup as the VVT3500 660 (LZ4) which is a VVT engine but is not OHC. I wanted to use the LZ4 in my Turbo Grand Prix, however... if I did I would have to bring all of the engine harness, computer and bcm with it, and then tune it. So I've opted to stay away from the VVT engines so that I can run them on the engine harness and ecu that is already in the car. I'm sure that the same would be true for you if you wanted to put this engine into a '70MC.

Yeah I found out it was a VVT Engine... That is actually a plus.. Had it been a DOD motor it would have been alot more to deal with..

I think Comp Cams makes a cam or two for the VVT engines..
