New Corral.net forum for mixed breeds/ls1s

I wanted some opinions. What do you guys think of The Corrals new mixed breed/ls1 forum. I for one do not like it, but that's just my opinion.

Thats not engine smoke, thats tire smoke.

And no one fears a SBF on a 300ft pull track either.

You can hate on the Chevy stuff all you want but the LS1 platform is just simply better than what the SBF presently is.

Thats in any case, there are always exceptions to the rule.

But typically speaking the LS1 is a hell of a platform for big cubic inch SB and simple and reasonable.

The crossbreeding of the Mustang which is probably the most reasonable/simplest body out there combined with the LS1 platform is a killer deal. It's so popular because it is simple and the best bang for the buck.

Just cause everyones doin' it don't make it right.

Why pussy around with an LS1 when you could do a 460 in a foxbody? I'm doing that right now and I have hardly any money into my project.

is it any coincidence that an LS1 has most of the features a SBF does?

Pretty easy to build a better mouse trap when you use all the best ideas from someone else.

but thats America!

Not going to get ito a pissing match.

But it's prolly not apples/oranges.The fox body combined with the all alum LS1 makes it a great liteweight platform at at a cost/ hp as resonable as your iron headed 460.

As far as what makes it right ?....what makes it wrong????

There are alot of people that are simply into racing and modifing and don't care about brands.I for one am not one of these people.I think brand loyalty stands for itself.I have always been loyal to ford and probably always will be. I would bet there are several sbf's out there that aren't skeerd of much of anything.

Yup half the guys on here use a glide behind their ford power plant and any Chevy guy running a gm rear and not a nine inch is almost an extinct.

Why would anyone put an LS1(great engine btw) into a mustang when you can get a camaro that already has one in it??? As to the comment on the LS1 being so much like the SBF, not to throw gas on a fire, but why did it take GM to improve on it when Ford's had the basic motor for such a long time?? Albeit crap heads and a block that can't handle much power, but still. Give credit where credit is due and don't show such ignorance to a good motor. You don't have to like it, but don't be stupid ignorant about it is all I'm saying...


Here's an example of a fast N/A LS powered camaro
