The mantra of the devout non purist enthusiast is that the right motor for the job is the one that is the most reliable, cost effective, and powerful one available regardless of the make. More often than not GM’s LSX ends up being the motor that fits those requirements, and as such the go to power plant for the non purist.
It doesn’t hurt that they came in a variety of different vehicles making them readily available, and have robust after market support.
LS IN EVERYTHING!
This tube framed RWD Cavalier was the kick in the pants I needed to finally do this Theme
I feel as though I read this car got written off shortly after it was completed
This is a beautiful Buick Special, even without the LS…
..but an LS makes everything better
This 64 Citroen has almost become a WTF Friday car several times
It’s an Art Morrison frame under this car and the motor puts out about 400hp
Did you know there is an entire forum dedicated to this sort of thing? Me neither, v8s2000.com
The Volvette is one insane grocery getter
This twin turbo mill sits under the hood
This is a built R Motor Sports Diva Roadster, its based on the Lotus 7…
..and underneath all that purple this particular one is an LS
This is neither the first, nor the last, time I will post this Conquest
I recently discovered the owner drifts it quite often, I thought it was more a time attack car
Beautiful to boot..
Air Society featured this LS1 powered Hardbody a few months back
I really dig the exhaust and wheel setup on this truck
Looks pretty par for the course (albeit an awesome course)…
and then… the feature on this can be read here on speedhunters.com
If memory serves this Subaru is from Australia
This car sits relatively high high but for good reason…
…Terribly small photo but this is the engine bay
…is in this. More on this build in the somewhat near future
Beast from Australia (of course)
Harrop Hurricane intake manifold
No engine bay shot on this one but the plate says it all really.
