I should have worded it differently. I knew it was an LS series (actually have one lying around), but I was wondering why that over an LS1 or LS2
Compression ratio is lower...cylinder walls are thicker....so in stock form they can take more boost than a LS1 or 2 or 3 or 7......some even prefer the 4.8s. They are very cheap and they run forever......I've seen some older trucks with 300K miles.....just a great old 327.
