    I'm thinking of buying a 6ltr engine to throw into my hotrod project, which year engine is the strongest/best?
    Or should I just stick with an Ls1?

    I prefer the L98, it's pretty solid and you don't have to worry about removing all the AFM gear.

    Nothing wrong with LS2, I prefer more efficiency because I do more miles and torque because I carry stuff, but in a hotrod the LS2 is a good base engine.

    Later VZ's and early VE manuals had L98's, they weren't fitted with AFM.

    Yes, but the LS2 cam makes up for it.

    ^ if you need to pass emissions, else an L98 with a GM ASA cam in it best bang for $6k.
