What say you about the LS3?
We all know the LS3 is a great engine, LS based engines have come a long way for sure.
But, the idiosyncrasies of a pushrod based engine make for somewhat poor marketing IMO. Why did chevy not produce an OHC engine?
People tend to think Pushrod engines are 'the devil' and are 'old'...
I personally don't mind this form of engine design, but from a pure trending perspective, OHC engines are becoming the norm while pushrods are being left behind (which is bound to happen).
Is the LS3 direct injected? If not, why not?
This thread is intended to dig deep into the GM LS3 engine not from a mechanical perspective, but from the heirarchy of the GM corporation as to why they didnt develop the LS series into an OHC motor.
Saying that its cheaper to develop pushrod engines is no excuse, ford has the cheapest sportscar on the market and it is indeed OHC (not a bad motor either).
Let's hear it.
