Default Thinking about picking up an LS1

Thinking about picking up a few different cars sometime in the near future for when I drop a 347 in the stang next summer. Either an LS1, old fox, or put a downpayment on an 03 cobra. I just want a lightly modded car that I can use as a daily driver, much like I have right now, but I really don't want another 5.0 (just considering another one because they are cheap).

I've noticed how cheap you can get a bone-stock LS1 for and I know what their capabilities are stock, but I've never worked on one or really looked at aftermarket parts for one. Just curious to how cheap light mods are for ls1's, how easy they are to work on, and what numbers I can expect to be putting down without doing anything major like h/c installs.

I'm not a GM vs. Mustang person or anything like that. I think both make nice drag and street cars. Any help is appreciated. Thx

A full bolt-on six speed car will put down over 350 rwhp.

Visit some of our sponsor's sites to the left to see how much mods are.
