Lsx?

Maybe a dumb question but is LSX a loose term for all LS motors or something completely different?

Yes LSX stands for the family of LS engines.

Cool thanks that what I thought. But have also seen a bunch of sigs with like LSX 427 or whatever thought that "X" might be a special block or something. Gracias!

Wouldn't it be more correct to say LSX is part of the LS family

No. The LSX is one of the LS engines that GM produces. It is not a generic term for LS engines.

At the 2006 SEMA show, GM Performance Parts introduced the LSX engine, an all-new cast-iron racing block based on the LS7 engine. It was designed with help from drag racing legend Warren Johnson. It offers displacements ranging from 364 cubic inches to 511 cubic inches (4.25 in (108 mm) Bore x 4.5 in (110 mm) Stroke) and is capable of withstanding 2,500 bhp (1,900 kW). This block incorporates two extra rows of head-bolt holes per bank for increased clamping capacity. The six bolt steel main caps are the same ones used on the LS7 engine. The engine debuted at the auto show in a customized 1969 Camaro owned by Reggie Jackson. The LSX will be available starting the second quarter of 2007, set to be available in authorized dealerships and retailers on March 31, 2007.

LSX refers to the cast iron high performance block and engines available from Chevrolet Performance. It is an LS engine architecture, like the LS-based engine used in Camaros, but designed for even higher performance.

if you are using the "X" like this LSx. it might pass. but once GM built that LSX engine, people could get confused.

Correct. GM started selling the LSX engine in 2007.
