or even better...




Step 1. Sell LS2 engine out of corvette, they go for several thousand....

Step 2. Sell the slow bonneville

Step 3. Take all money and buy a sweet SSEi and add a few mods to make it as fast as if a LS2 was in there.....

The LS4 in the GP and Impalls are rated for 303 HP and 300 ft lbs I think... My guess is its detuned for the trans... The trans is supposedly beefed up to handle the LS4 V8 tho...

Now how about an LS4 with an M112 or something.... Drool

Okay, an LS2 in a FWD car... Torque steer anyways it would be sweet and should fit. Sh*t they put a 4.6L N* in them and had left over room. A 6.0L should fit if a 5.3 fits in a Grandprix. Good luck finding a tranny that will put up with that kind of power. Uhhh a 4T80 is your best bet. Should hook up okay. Should key word here. Look into it some more. Don't make it rwd no that would be a pain!

I agree. The L67 or LS4 can assomplish much more than the LS2 and is lighter.

The DOD engine is a very nice revving engine.

until you drive a car that has a ls2 in it you will not understand. once you do u will want one in every car you drive. i get 28 mpg in my vette and i drive it hard!!!! i do not want a drag car i just want a nice, big bad *** full size sports sedan that is reliable gets ggod mileage and hauls booty...not to mention have you seen another one...no no you havent and for me that is the whole reason...time will tell. and no not the ls7 a mti resleeved ls2 that is bored and stroked to 427. the long block is 3 grade and go from there
