I was going to wait to buy an LS7 for my next build, but.... with this happening I decided to pull the trigger now. Figure it can sit in the corner for a bit till itís needed.

Anyone know the life expectancy of the LT4? Should I get mine now?

Now that you're single, you can put that baby in the living room. HA

I believe the l83, lt4 & 5 represent the last in line for now of semi tune able gm engines as the newer upgraded gen motors are locked down encrypted due to liability/reliability management.

Until the aftermarket cracks the new gen code if ever, we for now may have reached peak engine tune
.

So hereís investing 102 advice (rip weld) stock up on lt5 front accessory drives 😀
Holleys latest EFI setup includes DI tune ability. This is why we are seeing the GenV engines gain traction now in swaps. Holley is really making a name for itself in electronics lately. Lots of guys making the switch.

LT4 is used in in the current model Camaro ZL1 and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, so I'd expect it to continue to be available for a few years yet. But I have no inside info

Well, there's one less LT5 available as of yesterday morning. Now I need to figure out the difference between the 19418270 and the 19370666 controller kits - both for manual transmission. Looks like nobody has the 19418270 until July (probably the global chip shortage) but I can get the 19370666 now. Anyone know the difference?

I'm sure you spotted the rebate but..... $250 is $250.
