Honestly, once you get beyond Heads/Cam, the LS1 to LT1 advantage disappears. Better off having a blown bolt on LT1 for the same price as a heads cam intake LS1 car. LT1's are definitely disadvantaged when stock to stock but the price difference and the availability of used aftermarket performance parts make an LT1 car ALMOST as cheap as a ****** 5.0 Stang. Just, less, like-alot, ugly.
