It has my vote for most ridiculous idea ever...

power 550 bhp@10,000 rpm
torque 340 ft/lb@ 8,500 rpm

What a waste of friction.... :squint:

The new tune is like... 620hp @ 11.5krpm i think...

And it's a 4 litre! Awesome!

Think I'd rather drop an LS1 into a 1st gen... have 300+ ponies and STILL get 25 MPG :3

Yeah, I know, that's why after reviewing my options, that's what I'm going with. Trick is finding a 75-77 GT hatch 5-speed to have as a shell... I'd like one running just so I can get used to stick and swap it when I have a garage and the motor built up. Also, I'd go ahead and pre-build the suspension components before getting the motor. Namely some nice coil-overs and other body reinforcements.

I know of a guy that has a 3rd gen swapped to an LS1 and he gets 25mpg city. So I'm looking to be in that range, and I'll probably weigh less than a Corvette... but not likely

Wayyyyyyyy less than a vette...... vettes are fat pigs....

1st gen is like... 2200lbs i think and an LS1 is aluminum, and not that heavy.

depends on vettes years.... lsx depends on what year also.... some are aluminum some are iron blocks.

Without a doubt! A 1st gen with suspension first you know what 30 + year old suspension would not really be able to handle more than 3x the power lol.. normally in fbodies the first thign you want to do than power mods is for suspension as getting them to hook while making all that power is normally the hardest part.... but getting a 1st-3rd gen I would want a 1st gen with a lsx in it would be bad ass!

Oh, I'd get aluminum block just because it keeps the weight low, hell the block by itself is a mere 87 pounds! Long block is around 450.

Ship weight on a rebuilt 22RE (not the same, but close) is 280 lbs, so I'd have to plan on some stiff springs up front and something about 20-30% above stock in the rear...

Not enough torque... I want close to if not more torque than HP, otherwise I'd have gotten a Honda

640hp with 16cyls? i mean yea, its only 4.0L, but that seems a little silly... twice as many cyls as a v8= more problems. haha

I HATE GM, but there is no way LSx series motors can be knocked.
