I have an LS1 sitting on the ground but decided to go with the Tuned Port because I already had the computer and painless wiring that came out of my old hot rod. Its probably going to be way to much...but it will be fun.

i've seen this done before in a DI, except it was a vortec 4.3. there was a ridiculous amount of room left in the engine bay after wards. i believe he just sent the bolt hole measurements in to an adapter company and they had it made for him for a couple hundred bucks.

Do you even know what a 350 is?

I'll give you a clue, it isn't a tiny S10 engine.

Nope, It's a little tiny small block Chevy. TPIs make good torque though. Hopefully the Rover tranny will hold up to the 350. If it's stock (the motor), it's only good for about 300-350 lb./ft. I think the 350 TPI IROCs were reated at 240HP.

The TPI motor you have is probably a good choice anyways because it won't make the axle breaking power that the LS1 would. Either way good stuff...

L98's make a lot of torque.

I was just saying it isn't an LS1. an LS1 is an LS1. an LQ9 is an LQ9.

They are different. The bores are different. The stroke is the same. Cams are different-- LS1 has a gun-drilled cam, the LQ9 has a billet. Different rocker arms. The compression ratio is different as well. Sure, the LQ4 and LQ9 are based off of the rest of the Gen III small blocks (the first of which was the LS1), but they are different


And WTF is this BS about aluminum blocks not taking abuse as well as cast iron? So, are you saying the LS9 would be better with a cast iron block because aluminum isn't strong enough?
It is the most powerful engine from the factory GM has ever made. That is a testament to aluminum's durability.
Well, that and the fact that GM is moving to all aluminum blocks across the board.

This site sucks balls.
