As the LS6 was being developed inside GM, engineers were so enamored with its performance that they decided to spread some love to the truck line as well. By bolting LS6-style heads to a big-bore iron block, GM created the LQ4. Offered as the top-of-the-line gasoline engine in fullsize pickups and SUVs, the LQ4 was rated at a stout 300 hp and 360-370 lb-ft. In '02, Cadillac wanted a piece of the action too, and added a bigger cam and more compression to boost output to 347 hp. Due to their rugged iron blocks, generous 4.000-inch bore diameters, and excellent cylinder heads, the LQ4 and LQ9 are among the most coveted Gen III/IV motors on the secondhand market. With the exception of their larger combustion chambers, the LQ4/LQ9 heads are virtually identical to the LS6 castings. Furthermore, their 4.000-inch bores enable them to be paired with GM L92 cylinder heads. By bolting a set of these budget $800 rectangle-port castings to a stock 6.0L short-block, you can make some serious power for peanuts. Unless you're excessively fastidious about saving a few pounds, it makes little sense to pass up on an LQ4/LQ9 for a comparably priced LS1/LS6.
When it came time to update the venerable LQ4 in '07, GM bolted on a set of L92 heads and increased the compression to create the LY6. These simple tweaks bumped output to 352 hp. The addition of variable valve timing helps broaden the powerband as well. The LY6 is currently offered for heavy-duty hauling applications in 3/4-ton pickups and SUVs. While it's too new to be filling up boneyards just yet, expect it to be a very popular choice amongst engine swappers in a couple of years.

Ls7 with a supercharger put that in a better n see what it gets ya lol the 4.8 with a set of twins wud be alright too
1963 Fuel Injection Unit is best design with 327 or 350 or 383 or 400
LR4 from the junkyard with a home built turbo system
Would love to drop that into my 03 Z71
454 LSX- w/ TT's would be nice
Single turbo 408 LSX. Iron block, nice thick cylinder walls, priority main oiling, 6 head bolts per cylinder, dowel pinned mains... Perfect for big power and heavy abuse. An ERL 427 Superdeck I would be my choice on the aluminum block side of things.
Can I get that swapped into my burban
Any 4th gen camaro owners? Join my group here on FB (Fourth Generation Chevy Camaro owners) it's the one with the guitar icon
A evo 8 ls3 swap :)))) haha haters gonna hate. I love my awd cars and mt chevy motors
one that makes about 750 hp
I like the LS-7...got one that's still in the crate sitting in my dads shop. Got a dyno sheet that says it turns 555 HP and 597 ft-lbs of torque when using a holley 850 cfm carb and hooker long tube headers. Great motor with alot of power!!! Wanted to put it in my 64 nova but it would just twist my frame if I didn't put a full cage in.... long story short is the LS-7 is one bad engine for performance.
Either LS7 twin turbos or LSA twin turbos
I love the LS1 in my C-5. Corvette. It's stock and performs when I need it to. For a sports car 18 city is pretty good when I baby her. Not often enough.LOL
