im just now starting my 67 gto and was wondering, what you guys might think would be best. the 400 or the ls2 i cant decied.
ya i dont think i will always have time to adjust the carb so i think ls1 or ls2 might be in my book they are better on gas and arnt they lighter?? just seems that the lsx series is more economical so i think ill do that make it look like a stock ls1 or ls2 wha tever is in my budget.baron_iv said:If I could take a car and make it what I wanted, I'd take an older camaro or GTO and put modern suspension, drivetrain and engine components in it. Given the choice, I'd go with the LS7, but more reasonably would be the LS2. I mean you get all the benefits of a modern engine with the great lines of the classic car. Carburetors are really beginning to show their age, I am baffled that anyone still uses them. Frankly, carbureted vehicles are nothing more than a pain in the arse to me. Not very efficient, bad in cool/cold weather, constantly need adjusting, etc...just not worth the time/trouble in my opinion.
Sure, the 400 would be cool, if you're going for original and boring. If you want new, exciting and one-of-a-kind, there's no question that you should use the LS2.
Above all, it's your car...do whatever makes you the happiest.
Good Luck and I look forward to seeing pics of it when it's all finished.
