Which is beter the Ls2 are real cheep do they provide the same gains as ls6
or whats the diff

18 cubic inches, ls6 has 10.5:1 compression while the ls2 has 10.9:1 compression. more cubic inches the more power and torque you can get from a motor. IMO the ls2 is a better motor to mod :drive:

the possibilities my boy....ooo the possibilities.....a 5.7 ltr or a 6.0 ltr....you tell me LS2 FTW

I'm guessing that you are talking about the intake manifold...the ls6 is better. Most people say not to bother with a ls2 intake swap. There is a bunch of info available if you search.

:lol: well if hes talking about the manifolds, yea the ls6 is better....i thought he was talking motors....:werd:

I think the LS2 is more capable and is a better motor.

so will it bolt right up? what about the wiring?
01-21-2007, 04:15 AM
are you talking about intakes or blocks?
your first post does not specify
01-21-2007, 05:15 AM
Lets assume Both. :)

mani's or motors?
01-23-2007, 08:27 PM
motors...ls2 FTW....manifolds....ls6 FTW...:judge:

A stock LS6 will put about 20whp more down than a stock LS2. On avg. of course and comparing manual to manual.

The LS2 is definitely the more capable motor, considering its bigger and makes about the same power stock for stock as the LS6. Its also a Gen IV, compared to the LS6, which is a Gen III. Not much difference between Gen III and IV, just a few subtle ones, like electronic throttle-by-wire as opposed to a traditional cable throttle.
The LS2 has a broader torque curve as well, so it feels more powerful throughout the rev range than the LS6. That can most likely be attributed to the larger displacement, 6.0 vs 5.7.
Between the two motors, I'd definitely go with the LS2 :)

He has to be talking about manifolds. LS2 blocks are not cheaper than an LS6.

its just nice this threads gone for 6 days and no one knows what the hell is going on?....motor manifold...does it even matter now
