LS engines have been swapped into LITERALLY EVERYTHING! It's hard to think of something original. What is you idea for an off the wall LS swap? I know mine isn't too crazy, LS6 in a Fox Body Notchback. -James

Missed the whole Australian market with Holden mainly the beastly LS fucking A. LS engines have been a staple in Australian made vehicles forever. Also Holden made the Maloo with a Supercharged LSA engine factory making stupid amounts of horsepower and close too 700Nm of twerks. Its literally the fastest LS engine of them all and it got missed D:

Alright boys, help me out in the response section please. I have a 1982 c3 corvette, it doesn't have the anemic doodoo stock motor, no no no, it has the 1969 350 corvette motor, it's doing real good for me, but it's carbureted and doesn't offer a whole lot of modifications, so, what I ask of you, is give me a low end cheaper list of what you'd do, and a high end list for when I'm rich and old one day (only 18 rn) the things most important to me are: reliability, monter like sounds, and general badassery, have fun :)

So, not a hater, not a fan-boy. I swear. But Mercedes just came out with the M139 engine. It is a 2 liter, 4 cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 416 HP and 369 ft-lb or torque. That's not that far off of most of the LS numbers at as little as a third of the size. I mean, why does GM (indeed America) need so much displacement?
Redtooth 75
Redtooth 75 Vor Monat
Increasing displacement is by far the easiest way to make more power. If you have a large displacement engine you can make good power just with a mild cam and decent compression. Smaller engines need to add stuff like turbochargers and vvt to make good power. That mercades engine makes good power, but it also costs a lot more than an ls.
