Theme Tuesdays: LSX In Everything

7

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.
