    no they don’t run AFM, yes you can bolt a T56 straight up :)

    as for cam options, they’re practically as limitless as any other LS engine.

    It’s based on an LS3 but with a slightly stronger bottom end, which should make it more durable than an L98. The LSA has an Eaton 1.9 L supercharger, which obviously can be overdriven or you could change it out for any other LS3-based supercharger (which probably isn’t necessary unless you’re chasing mega HP).

    On a side note, the LSA supercharger sticks out a bit, you’ll likely have a problem with hood clearance. You can change the supercharger top plate over to an LS9 unit which helps a little.

    Also on the cost side, the LSA becomes even more cost effective when you consider that it usually comes with a clutch as a crate motor (if you’re going manual).

    The clutch that it comes with doesn’t suit t56 from memory

    “Budgets” are more what you would call guidelines than rules ;-)

    Hey Sands no, not on face book not a fan ,

    budget wise I don’t have one im going to get what I would like and what the build cost is what it cost so if it’s 1 or 4 years building it is part of the enjoyment

    but will be cheaper than the vk as I have already done things three or four times

    Quite a few of us on here have experience fitting LS motors to earlier gen Commodores, from mld to relatvley wild.  I reckon there wont be too much we cant help with.  Its been done so many times now the bugs are pretty much sorted.  Would be a nice project :good:
