yep. it has the odb2 port and everything when you do the swap. and its legal too since its an engine from the same or newer year car

thats depends on where you live.
in some areas you can not swap in a motor with more cylinders then the car was available from teh factory with.

example, you can legally put a ls1 in a v6 camaro, cuase it was available stock.

but a 240 was only available with a 4, so you cant even put in a 6.

depends on where you live and how strict they are. sometimes you can get special approval.

ls7's cost about 20k. ls1's can be found for 2500 if LUCKY. ls7's a 7 liter and has a dry sump. ls1's come in 5.3 6.0 5.7 etc
all these motors are the same series sorta. parts are interchangeable for the most part between all but the ls7. i think they are working on that though, my info may be a little out of date.

ls1 is 5.7
ls2 is 6.0
ls6 is 5.7 z06 motor
ls7 is 7.0 z06 motor
lq series is 4.8(iron or aluminum block),5.3 (iron or aluminum block), or 6.0 (iron or aluminum block)

there is a new 6.6, but i think thats not the same series, i think its considered a big block.

ps, i like american muscle too.

I have a lt1 im putting in my 240. Just got to get the internals and assemble it. And pick out a tranny. it will make 350hp to the wheels, and about an estimated 400lb ft of torque. Not too bad considering i picked up the block for 75 bucks, vortec heads for 100, and forged internals for 230. oh and the t10 tranny was only 350 for a rebuilt one. Thats under 800 for the powertrain and its balls fast

Hey Check out www.hinsonsupercars.com They have kits for s13's and s14's and RX-7'S to drop in LS6 AND 7 motors. I considered it because I work at a Cadi dealership and we often pull LS7 motors from CTS-V's that customers want to replace with mail order strocker motors and other customers blow the motors and don't have the mone to fix them go figure you buy a $65,000 toy and then can't afford to repair it cause warranty won't cover it. Well I hope that web site helps.!!!

why wouldnt someone just go with a 3400 or a 3800, v6' and can be boosted uber easy and very good hp/tq numbers
3.8 GM motors are based on the 3.8 liter buick block. capable of some great numbers, but they have been known to have oiling problems.
