    lt1 or ls1?

    First of which should I do? i heard somewhere youve gotta cut the firewall or something to get in ls1 in it. Any truth to that? which one requires less labor. Pretty much any useful info let me know

    Man i'd say lt1. Like mark said, LT1's sound soo good and a ls1 kinda well.....sound weird with open exhaust,

    But say stock for stock, it doesnt take much at all to get the lt to run just as good as an ls.

    So price wise, less work wise, and better sound wise, go lt1 :bigthumb:


    imo

    How do LT1's sound with true dual flowmaster 40's?
    LT1/4L60E/Shaved handles, emblems, antenna/5-4 Drop/16" Xtreme Wheels.


    In 1095, Pope Urban II commanded the beginning of the most heinous period ever documented: The Crusades. While killing over 100,000 Turks in 1098, the Christians "did no other harm to the women found in [the enemy's] tents - save that they ran their lances through their bellies," according to Christian chronicler Fulcher of Chartres.

    all i can say is, years ago, we jumped in a BONE STOCK 95 camaro one night (6 of us...one was laying across everyone in the back seat) and we came up to an intersection and did some dounuts like we were on ice then pulled on the on ramp like we shot out of a cannon. ever since then ive been a firm believer of an lt1:boink:

    LS1 FTW!

    LT1s have a bit too much rasp for my taste, unless they're catted or cammed.
