definitely hold out for ls1. it has so much more power than i expected. 300whp stock is pretty ridiculous. The top end power is awesome, but i have never driven in an lt1 so i wouldn't know how that is. I've heard that they are more of torque monsters tho
If you are going to do a swap and you do not have the LTx motor, I would wait for a LSx motor. IMHO , Nothing wrong with the LTx motor. The LSx motors are just the next generation and are easy motors to get some decent horsepower out of. Again nothing really wrong with the LTx motors.. Roger
