General Motors has announced that the blown beastie that lives under the hood of the Corvette ZR1 will be available as a crate motor next fall and our head is spinning with the swap possibilities.

With 638 hp and 604 lb.-ft. of twist available from the 6.2-liter supercharged V8, and dimensions shared by the LS3, any number of vehicles could make a happy home for the LS9. According to GM, the engine comes fully dressed, with an ignition system, exhaust manifolds and supercharger, and only needs an external oil tank and coolant tank (for the charge cooler), an ECU and wiring harness.

So, the question is: What would you fit the LS9 into? :D

I think it would make a nice 67-69 Camaro or Sting Ray Corvette engine.



Wonder what the MSRP is going to be for the LS9?

Well, dunno about that, the LS7 was handbuilt and the such, that has to jack price up a lot.
This is a beefed up LS3 pretty much. :p
Not really it isn't, only the block is the same.
And LS9s are also hand built at the Wixom facility along side LS7s.
