General LSX Automobile Discussion - LSx combos

I see alot of posts about many different LSx options being dropped into these cars...I currently have a 2002 Z28 w/LS1 in it...its pretty fast, but I just got it and its not my daily driver its a weekend warrior...I suppose I need to figure out if i want to have a forced induction or N/A car first but what types of LS motors should I be looking for if i want more cu.in. and will drop right into my car? What types of things should I do to the current LS1 I have if I want massive power? Are the lower ends weak? If theres a post here somewhere explaining all of these things please tell me...

The bottom end of a ls1 is very strong. I guess you would have to be more specific when you talk about your goals. Do you want a daily driver or track car? If you have the money the sky is the limit for power.

There are issues and advantages with just about any combo. From my experience, go to a good builder that will put together the correct combination and more then anything a great tuner is a must have no matter what you choose.

First I would decide how much HP you want to make, unless its a crazy amount the LS1 will probable be good enough to reach your goal with either a nice H/C setup or F/I. And while there are other good combos out there the LS1 is a great engine. I would guess that a lot of the guys with other combos didn't necessarily replace their LS1 that was working fine but had issues with it and went with something else that works a little better with their setup.

alright well thanks for the help guys. my uncle owns a machine shop with an engine dyno and everything o he can def help i was just curious what people typically switch to when they want to make a bad ass street car and if i were to do forced induction i wanted to know if the lower end would take it with this LS1

Lower end will take you a little ways but once again it comes down to what your goals are and a great tuner
