I have a guy wanting to trade me a 6.0 short block thats needs rebuilt or a ls1 complete in pieces for a brand nitrous works adjustable plate kit for a lt1. which one would you go for the ls1 or the 6.0
I know nothing about these engines. I'm a mopar guy. I have a brand new in the box nitrous kit that I bought from a co-worker to help him out. I'm trying to sell it. and this guy wants to trade for the kit. the LS 1 he said was all there but in pieces. if I do this it will be for a future turbo project possibly.
sub 8 sec passes? uummmm, you better go with the 6.0. I don't know what your Cuda weighs, but I had a friend with a Challenger and it weighed like 3800 with an aluminum headed 440.
But keep in mind to make "sub 8 sec." passes, you better use a good aftermarket rotating assembly and some pretty decent heads. I don't know what your nitrous kit is worth, but basically you'd only be using the 6.0l block and I think those are pretty cheap and easy to come by, so keep that in mind.
not really wanting any of these parts but if they are worth what the nitrous kit is I might trade. besides I already have a 440 in the cuda but it's hard to find good parts for it without spending a arm and a leg. and the Cuda should be light around 3000lbs or less when finished.
