why the fuck was that deleted.
kid realized he was out of his element?
Model T with an LSX
I was read that post delete I was |----| this close to opening that shit back up
Hes one of those faggots that thinks a ls1 goes in everything.
didn't he not know what "sbc" was?
it went in this;
musta had something to do with the fact that I mentioned a 383 that would kick the crap out of the LSX?
reliability in a muscle car..... kids these days
Id take a ZZ4 crate 350 over an LS1 classic camaro.
"lets stick a ls1 in my civic."
what would you know about the subject anyways?
I like your taste in cars. Your taste in motors(at least of the small block variety) seems lacking though.
my sarcasm detector is off. Surely you're not referring to me?
LSX camaros are a dime a dozen, if you want a LSX based car go buy one. Oh wait... That explains everything.
You couldn't POSSIBLY be biased could you.
I don't own anything LSx based. But it's hard to beat the performance straight out of the box of an LS motor.
Of course LSx camaros are a dime a dozen. Camaros in general are a dime a dozen and GM's newest, "hottest" mill is always going to be swapped in by all the guys wanting to ride the wave.
New LS1 350hp 365tq $5039
New ZZ4 355hp 405tq $4044
LSX conversion on a first gen or classic car typically cost around 15k at the end of the day, whereas the "old school" sbc is a simple drop in.
Parts needed for LSX swap:
Front drive accessory drives (PS, Alt, AC and all pulleys) GM: $900 After
Electrical: Bigstuff3 $1800- $2200, Fast XFI $2200, GM $2000
Exhaust: $700 - $3,000
Fuel tank w/ pump, lines and filters (EFI setup) $ $2,000
Transmission: GM T56: Used $1500, ATS $3600, Gforce $4,000, Automatic $ naw.
Transmission mount, T56kit (ATS) $300
Motor Mount plates ATS $125.00.
drive shaft: $300
Good aluminum radiator $ 1,200
You starting to see the picture yet?
There are much cheaper ways to do an lsx swap, most people could do it for a fraction of that price unless
yup and at the end of the day it all adds up to a 45k+ first gen camaro...
shit adds up... QUICK. whether you build it in your garage, or whether you pay a mechanic. The real difference is build time.
Yeah, I do.
Why would you buy a brand new LS? Build one for thousands cheaper. Get a JY motor, or an entire car, for necessary swap parts like tank, accessory drive, computer, wiring, trans, pedals, etc. So, other than that you'd need mounts? Exhaust you'd need anyways.
Meh, I'm not trying to bandwagon the LSx but it's insanely easy to get tons of power out of, which you'd have to up the displacement on a classic Gen I motor. Like, say putting a 502 in.
All things being equal, I'd rather have the LS1
They make mods for them too, and it's a better engine overall than the older small blocks
So when is someone going to swap a duramax into a firstgen camaro or chevelle?
I wanna say I've already seen it done
