LT1 from Buick Wagon to Gen 1

Postby jjg53 » Wed Jun 14, 2017 1:47 pm

just wondering if anyone has done this. a deal i was looking at fell through last year and been searching since, and i think i have my sights on something good now. just wanted to see if anyone has tried this. i know the HP on these cars were rated for something lame like 180 hp but I'm sure a cam and some heads could get that up to respectable numbers...

There are just about as many challenges to doing an LT1 as there are to going LS, but not NEARLY as many benefits, go LS my son, go LS. :wink: 8)
