It's an easy swap for a used LS1, cheaper then building a sbc, and makes way more power. It is a good choice.

I'm building a '68 mini-tubbed etc. I just picked it up last weekend, pics coming soon...

I'm on the fence over a killer 468 I sold a friend a few years back, not very streetable 12.5-1 roller motor, BUT MAN IT SURE SOUNDS KILLER!!

I like the idea of an LSx 6 speed combo out of a wreck, I found a motor local with all the goods for $2700. I'm not all that concerned about buying a used one, we just had a 2000 Silverado in the shop last week with 220,000 on it!

Why don't i here much about the 6.0 out of a truck? there's alot avalible.

The product I would be into is a resonably priced steel or plastic tank that looks factory and is set up to screw in a stock sending unit and pump combo, oh ya and fit my narrowed leaf springs-Chris

What do you guys think LSx-or 468?

The major difference with the truckmotor is it as a ironblock, otherwise they are the same. If you would go for really big boosted power you really need the iron block. Of course it is heavier than thoe others from aluminum but not heavier than a CSB. One benefit with the truckmotors is the price.

The obvious choice would be to go with the LSx

I am late to the game as usual, but yes, we will be using the LSx format motor in our project upgrade. Our schedule keeps getting pushed back due to workload and some issues with core level engine parts... Going to try and spend some time on development of a few other parts to suppliment the build later on.

This man speaks the truth.. if you try and do a budget deal you can get better performance for the same or less cash.. and less weight.

I will continue to preach, the LS1 will hands down beat any SBC or BBC in the bang for buck category. You cant build a SBC for the amount you can buy a used LS1, plus the LS1 will make more power! The LS1 factory parts can handle WAAYYYY more power then a regular SBC.

You will LOVE an LSX motor!!!

Default LS1 in a 68 Firebird

We are about to do an LS1 in my neighbors 68 F-body. What issues will we have with install? Will the A/C compressor in the stock location clear the right frame rail? Any and all thoughts will be much appreciated.

-Dave
