Thoughts on an LS-1

Steve B.

Recommended Posts

Some guy near me has 2 LS1 blocks and various add on parts. I dont need a block, ha but I am wondering if it might be a good investment for the future. They are aluminum blocks that are used but in good shape. 

Does anyone know if this is a direct replacement for a typical Monsoon cast iron block? Same crank, cam, heads, etc?

Thanks !

The LS is not a direct replacement for an iron small block.  All the internals are specific to each.  They are very different engines although you could do an LS conversion as it would fit in the hole.  It is a viable hot rod engine swap.
