    Its amazing what 60 years of R&D can do

    The LS is an amazing powerplant. Superior to any previous GM engine in every way

    The more I learn about them the more I want one. Just not sure that the LS swap into an 81 maro is worth the effort and expense. Would be a real nice dd motor with even more hp than the ZZ stroker.

    Ha,HA I have a 15 Gt stang with a coyote motor in it.... Love it too...I like Ford ,Chevy ,Dodge equally. They all are good motors, make a lot of power per CI.

    From what I can tell, Ford is making a better engine right now...

    The video was kind of lame...
