Building a 6.2 LS engine from a 6.0 LS source
Its absolutely refreshing when someone is knowledgeable and willing to share. Thank you for showing the differences between the heads and explaining how they can be interchanged depending on what the desired application is for.
What's that ls3 head casting number being used for this 6.2 build?
i know this an old video, but would you still recommend ls3 heads on this 6.0 to 6.2 block or are there other ls heads out now you would use?
The could have bought a Ford engine copied it.
The guys who cry about oh they stole this they stole that is because they had no choice but to switch from sloper and gourd to Chevorlet LS to compete again.
Can I do that with a 6.0 lq9 block?
Ok , I want to put an LS engine in a 99 Jeep wrangler tj. It has an inline six now , but the LS sounds like a better build.Which LS engine would be better to put in the Jeep?
You’re awesome man keep the videos coming
where would you suggest getting a master rebuild kit for the 6.0 ?
The old GMC truck v6 from the 1960“s was a beast. If I remember I think it had the same bore is a 454.
Shelby went to work for Dodge in the 1980`s.
by the way I love your videos. i built a few 383 s from your videos. I have a 388 stroker from a 69 vette i built , thanks to you.
Also, what would you recommendation for a cam. i would like to shoot for .600 /.600 lift or so. any thoughts on that?
if you could up grade again would you put a stroker kit into this. I have a 6.0L block and and ls3 heads. i would like to know your thoughts on stoker and boost for this build?
I never knew you can go .065 over comfortably.. how much meat is left in the cylinder wall after that?
I love how informative you are!!!
305 v6 head ,,,????
IDK if boring a 6.0 to a 6.2 is really worth the effort unless your motor needs rebuilding
What happens if I do this and I use my 243 heads?
Can I make that 6.0 block a marine setup?
Great history and information. Thank you.
Engineering degree 🤣🤣
Is gm interchangeable? 😂
Hi I have a 89 454 single cab dually and I want to put a gm 6.2 in it. can you give me a list of what to get and the best transmission to use…please sir..
I always use my fingers for a measuring tool when I look at ports on heads too! Please refer to the truck vortec engines as gen 3 or gen 4 engines they are not LS
LS3 heads are "very similar" to Trickflow high ports for the small block ford…combustion chambers are also "very similar" to the design of Trickflow Twisted Wedge design…looks like Trickflow should be pissed…
Small block ford headers bolt up to LS engines…
With ls3 heads on 6.0 block can you still use drive by cable intake
I like the concept of engineers switching companies. Same with design. Sometime in 1970 or at least after the 1970 Trans Am was completed, John DeLorean went to Chrysler. The next thing you know the Cuda’ has a shaker hoods scoop only turned around 180* compared to the Trans Am. Didn’t copy, the guy with the idea just left… or showed up depending on which side you were on.
Best video on ls , thanks for you time to make it, I wish you were on Houston area.
Well what can I do to a brand new 6.0 that’s in a2500 Silverado that has the “NO POWER BLUES”?
The heades number please
How did this motor turn out? Do you remember the cam specs and what type of power he made?
I’m building the same motor. LQ4, 4.065 bore with LS3 heads. Little bowl work and a mild 216/224 .600/ .600 114 LSA cam. Hoping for 400whp through a tr6060.
Does the crank piston and rods have to be rebalanced?
If I add just ls3 heads and a ls3 intake without a cam will it make a bunch of power still? Also I wouldn’t be boring out the cylinder walls.
Engine with most starting horsepower for around $600
I would like to addFuel PumpFuel RailFuel InjectorsExhaust Manifold HeadersCam ShaftECU2 very small turbosInnercooler
Would it produce 500 horsepower at the wheel?
It would be illegal for a engineer from Ford to go to GM with designs.
What state are u from just asking
Hey brother who makes a good oil pump for a ls motor thanks brother
I would imagine engineers that change companies have to sign a non-disclosure agreement also.
You remind me of one of my instructors from UTI. Brian Dean at Exton, PA. He was a bit more colorful with his language at times, but had tons of knowledge and had a good head on his shoulders.
It would have been nice if you would have said the casting numbers on that 6.0 head cylinders that you were planning on porting out the six litre block is excellent but I just want to know what heads you're putting on it if you got the time to answer this that be great thanks for the videos I go a long way with the do-it-yourselfer and trying to understand what's the best a guy could get his hands on for a decent price keep up the good work
The main caps are not a forged steel piece. They are powdered metal.
Only class I liked in school was yours hahaha
To piggyback on someone claiming that GM stole the LS from Ford, Ford was going to all ohc v8's in the early 90's years before GM came out with the first gen iii small block that was ohv. I have said myself, so I can agree with the claim that GM stole the design of the Northstar v8 from Ford, but I can't see how anyone would think they copied or stole the LS platform from Ford.
