Default Lt1 vs lt4 internal

So I been reading over the lt1 and lt4 specs and it seems aside from the compression difference of the domed vs dished pistons the internals seems pretty much the same?

Does anyone know if there are any other differences? Oil squirted, oil and coolant routing, etc??

Thanks

Thank,

Any specific parts that are stronger on the bottom end?

I'm assuming block casting is the same, and the crank from what I can is the same as well.

Any specifics would help

Try going on www.paceperformance.com and checking the spec's of each engine. I'd bet there is more info there.
