What are you looking to do with the car? If its truly a good deal on the ls6 do it and save some money and put it towards something else. If its still the same price as a lq4 or lq9 then just do a 6.0l

my plan is to build a stroker motor and I have always been partial to the LQ4 but this LS6 just kinda fell in my lap. Guess I can just part one out after I get what goodies I need... thanks

the lq is going to weigh some more, but overall it will make more power, and if you wanna go aluminum alot of people prefer the ls2 block instead.

The LQ4 can make more power as mentioned. Plus it can take more abuse!!
