GM 6.0 Engines

Okay, so I am planning a 6.0 swap, and I have noticed there is three different GM 6.0's. the LQ4, the LQ9, and the LS2. what is the difference between the three?

Lq4 = 300-325hp (apparently it depends on air filter setup)
Lq9 = 345hp stock
I believe those were mainly put on trucks (like silverados)
Ls2 = 400hp stock. (Used on vettes and 05-06 GTOs)

That's all I know lol

Only a stock 6,0? Go forged internals and add some boost!

Basically they are all the same engine. The only difference between the three is how much weight you want at the front of the vehicle. If you want a autocross/ road racing car, then get the LS2. It is lighter compared to the others and offers the same power. If you just want a dedicated track car then get the LQ9. It is a little heavier but you can make up with it on the money you save over the LS2

If you are indeed planning on boost go with the lq block. It will handle it better than the ls2. This is my tentative plan at the moment.

Probably because its around the time where a used or wrecked LS2 car isn't going to cost an arm and a leg. I remember when I was shopping for my Z06 that I saw like 5 GTO's on the lot and they all had under 55,xxx miles on them for like 16-19000. The LS2 is an awesome engine to mod.

I disagre. I've seen plenty of aluminum blocks handle nearly 20 psi of boost before and not have a problem. I'm sure the block could handle it, its the stock internals that worry me. That's why id go forged ;D

Depends on the internals mainly.
Aluminum will handle 800 safely, but I would want iron for more than that personally. Just as a safety type deal.

But really....what is 85 pounds when you make 850+ RWHP.
At the same time....what is spending $200 more for the aluminum block when building a 600-700 RWHP boosted motor?
