Keep in mind I am a Ford man at heart...I'm not a big fan of sb1 based motors just because everybody and their brother has one. I will also say that I think the LSx engine family is by far the best thing Chevrolet has put out.
I too at one time was on the ragged edge of putting a LS1 in my 92 coupe. And I'm not going to say that I will not end up doing one in the future. I would just go out and buy a 98+ Z or SS, but they are a freakin rattle trap.
You will have to admit the LSx motors and t-56's are a pretty stout combo for being a factory piece.All aluminum, 6 bolt mains and Hell , with a cam change I have seen a few push over 400 rwhp....and that's a pretty mild cam.Plus knock down 25+ mpg.
I have a few die hard Chevrolet friends...and what pisses me of the most is how narrow minded they are.If it's not a Chevrolet...it's a piece of crap.
I can honestly say I am not like that...I just like being different.
btw, I did decide to go the BBF route with my coupe. But I will say this. My next project will be a Fox body daily driver for my wife, with an LS1 and a 4l60 trans.
