Pricing info for the LS9 crate

:mind-blowing: SWEET :mind-blowing:

That would rock to put it in a nice sleeper car and then just shock the hell out of people.

I would love to have this in my Fav of all cars, 1984 Monte Carlo SS with the V back rear window in that awesome dark burgundy color. That was one of the best coupes GM made. :smilewide:

That is a steal, considering it is only $5-6 K more than the LS7. I wonder how much the LSA will go for.

Great pricing.

I'm stacking Franklins as I type...

Be cheaper to steal it, hide it, fess-up, do the time then claim it in 2 years.

In fact I'd claim it was stolen from me.

How often does a roller pull you over to look at the numbers on your motor?

One day... I will have the deadliest Sunfire on earth.

Actually it would be even cooler to drop it in the Express. Supervans ho!

I want one of these teamed up with an overbuilt transaxle and stuffed into the rear of a Smart. ;-)

You would have to hollow out the Smart and mount a Recaro where the windshield used to be.

The budget for tires alone would be daunting. Need a sponsor.

Yeah, the tire budget would be nuts.

The Smart does have a surprisingly large amount of engine space... granted, not for a LS9. I suppose you could fit it, but the transaxle would be hard to fit. It would be impossible to work on, cool and there would be no place for a gas tank. There would be no space for catalytics or a muffler.

I scoped out the Smart at one of the autoshows for the express reason to do the Hayabusa upgrade.

The only problem is that there's not too many modern cars worthy of this engine 8).

Speaking of which, you could really add some life into the XLR with this engine.

The trick is to use these to keep the old cars alive. But I would actually be pretty happy with a crate LSX376.

GMPP has some pretty trick stuff, making these drivetrains almost modular, so retrofitting is _way_ easier than trying to stuff a LS2 into a old Camaro.

an AWD XLR II with this would be a beast, but i think the cts coupe is the replacement for the XLR

Maybe this would help the tire budget by reducing tire spin?

Summitt Racing has it on their website..cracks me up, I could click and order an engine about as easily as ordering a book on Amazon.

It would be cool to put one in a G8, '94-96 Impala SS, Tahoe, or Suburban.
