    I know I keep hear ls is faster this that. Looks to me like the fastest ls isnt as fast as the fastest mod motor.

    ;) Just saying please discuss

    No chevy engine is fast! Remember it is the MUSTANG that is carrying that heavy block down the 1/4 mile strip! So the MUSTANG is the fastest! You try & run a 1/4 mile while lugging 5-700 lbs of metal!!!!!! Prove me wrong!

    I am really curious as to why this topic always comes up, and we are on a Mustang Forum?
    Personally, I enjoy Ford engines. I like the design of the OHC engines and I like the way they drive. Now mind you, the ls series responds better to bolt on crap but who cares. If you are really going to build an engine, you aren't worried about bolt on crap and you will make whatever power you want to, with whatever engine platform you want.

    Just my .02, carry on my fellow enthusiasts lol. :thumbsup:

    OK. This is my $0.02... I'm doing an LS swap in a 97 gt. Why I chose to do so is because they respond better stock under boost, bolt one and from the 5.3 truck motor to the ls7. And when I go yo Texas every year for the tx2k how often do I find a mod motor that keeps up with the supras and L's cars? Not much... I plan on having a 700+HP play toy that if it breaks I don't have to search the globe for the correct head or a timid block... it would be simpler for me to go with a built single turbo L's build.

    Now in the mod motors defence I had a 2005 stage 2 roush with a f1 pro charger. (F1 or d1) can't remember. And the thing was crazy fun... but when I wanted to get a reliable 900hp out of it for play I was looking at a whole new build....

    I love the mod motors but I prefer a ford push rod motor just because they are much less complex. Hints why I have a 94gt with a 302 and a 99 with a 460

    I think it still goes back to the old saying that there is no replacement for displacement. If you look at a modded n/a 4.6 its resonable to expect 1hp per cubic inch or 281 hp. If you have a modded n/a 6.0 360 hp can also be expected. If atmospheric air pressure is 14.7 lbs. and you add 8 lbs. Of boost in theory you should see a 50 percent increase in hp without considering things like pulled timing due to higher IAT's. In this setup a 4.6 should make 420 hp where as a 6.0 output jumps to 540hp. In a built motor setup staying with pump gas and going to 15 psi you should in theory see n/a power levels double or 560hp for the 4.6 and 720hp for the 6.0. In the end it still comes down to how much air a motor can process.
