The GM LS engine is a design intended as the only V-8 engine utilized in General Motors’ line of rear-wheel-drive cars and trucks. The LS series was a clean sheet design with little in common with the classic Chevrolet small block V8. Some LS engines are all-aluminium, especially the performance oriented engines, while others are cast iron, and all LS engines have 6-bolt main bearing caps.
The LS engine has been the sole powerplant of the Chevrolet Corvette since 1997 and has seen use in a wide variety of other General Motors vehicles, ranging from sport coupes to full size trucks. Due to the engine’s relatively compact external dimensions compared to its displacement and power output, the engine family is also a popular choice for kit cars, hot rods, buggies, and even light aircraft
The LS1 is rated at 350 hp (260 kW) and 365 lb·ft (495 N·m) since 2001 (which comes with the LS6 Intake.) The LS1 was used in the Corvette from 97-04. It was also used in GM F-Body cars with a rating of 305HP – 315HP.
