Came up with the idea after seeing a thread in the tuning section about ls1 vs 5l.

So overall which motor do you like the best.

If there were no such thing as laws, Turbo 304 by miles. There's 1000 things better about the LS motors, but they fail on cool and they fail on being an American motor and Amercians have just been ramming me all morning on GT5 in overpowered cars they can't control so that's very important too

gotta agree here. i dont care about whats fastest down the strip. as long as it sounds good, has a bit of power, and is just a nice looking engine. 5 litre has all those 3, while the LS1 has just 1.

You cant bet the sound of a F/I 5L they sound awsome with a decent exhaust system but mods wise a LS1 can get a heap of power with only afew mods

i picked fuel injected 5litre because of its noise and it can fit into almost anything plus fuel injection is heaps nicer than carbies. Need an option of the 5.7 stroker which basically is the bigger version of the 5l

Now c'mon, the LS1 still sounds a hell of a lot better than any Ford V8 :p
