Regular Production Options ?? NO the LQ4 is the engine code...
With this statement you apparently don't know what an RPO is.

I guess not what does RPO mean? The last applications list above is for the LS1 engine.

What was the point with listing all of the applications?

RPO is GM's 3 digit code representing an option, be it engine, trim, paint, wheels etc.

For example the RPO for the 350 in the 1987 pickup is L05, the 305 for the same year is the L03.  A 350 in a Vette for the same year was L98.  Same block, same crank, same rods, everthing else was different.  Same holds truck for the 305, same block (different bore) same crank, same rods....  Just like and LS motor....

If you look on the Caddy with the LQ9 engine under the option sheet it will list LQ9 = 6.0L 345hp version, just as my 1987 lists L05 on its option sheet.

For contrasting comparison, the trim levels for 73-87 pickups are YE9 for all top level trucks, and Z62 for all base model trucks.

I have been working on and around Chevy motors longer than you have been alive, I didn't just start working on them this year.

I thought the 6.0 was an LQ4 or LQ9, the LS family is different...

No, LS motors are the generation of engines; Gen III and Gen IV.  ALL 4.8, 5.3 6.0, 6.2 and the 97 vette 5.7 (LS1) and 7.0 are all LS motors. 

LOL...

First, LS is not the generation, GENIII, GENIV, etc... is the generation.

Second, until 2005 when the LS2 was introduced to the Corvette, there was no 6.0 in the LS family.

Third, although some of the parts are interchangeable, the LQ and LS designate different engine "family's". Was there ever an LS1 on a truck? Was there ever a 6.0 (LQ4, LQ9) in a passenger car?

Fourth, thanks for NOT defining RPO. What does it stand for? Regular Production Options? Obviously I don't know what I'm talking about... The LQ4,9 designate the options on the GENIII engine, the LS1,2,3,4,7 do the same, but ultimately they are different "family's".

Fifth, I listed the applications to show you that the LQ engines didn't go in a car, and the LS engines didn't end up in a truck.
 
Sixth, way to take personal shots, what a professional person and business man. Your 22+ years of knowledge of the Chevy engine is relevant to an discussion pertaining to year 2000 and up engine's... huh...

I think people just refer to genIII motors as LS family, I do.  And they are related.  That's why you see, LS6 intakes on LQ9's, LS2 heads on LQ4's, L92 heads on LS1's, LS1 heads on LQ4's.  I just put some LS6 heads on my LM7 last month.  It's the same family as far I know.  I have an LS1 style intake and LS1 headers on my truck right now. And GM has put the LS7 in a truck....it's the new SS concept.

stock camaro/ta exhaust manifolds work so i would guess that aftermarket shorty headers for a camaro/ta would as well... they look nice too

Just be sure to do a some research before you buy stuff.  That last little detail can make all the difference in the world.  Pay attention to the motor mounts you buy, they can make the difference between having to cut/grind/relocate or just "set it and forget it".

Just getting back to this....
Yeah Vile.  I was going to post that wiki is edited by anyone that cares to log in so its is likely to be inaccurate, but still....

1) All Gen III and up current motors are refered to by GM as LS-series.  Have you heard of the LSX?
Here is a webpage from GM
http://pprod.gmgoodwrench.gmgssm.com/GMPerformanceParts/EngineShowcase/index.jsp?engId=LSX&engine=LSX&sku=19166454&engCat=ls

Please note the following sentence: Dream bigger. Because the new GM Performance Parts LSX takes the LS-series V8 to the ultimate extreme.

2) until 2005 when the LS2 was introduced the Corvette used the original 5.7LS1/LS6 (going on 8 years).  Being in the same family means parts will swap from one to another it has nothing to do with displacement.

3)LS1 is the RPO for a high performance motor, LQ4/9 is the RPO for a pickup engine.  It has nothing to do with engine families.  They are all Gen III or Gen IV motors.  Engines are assembled and designed with their intended purpose in mind.  The LQ9 was designed to give a 6000lb truck some pep and allow for towing.  The LS6 was designed to compete on a race course in a 3100lb sports car.

4)I did Define RPO, you had the naming correct, it is just you don't understand it.
Quote
RPO is GM's 3 digit code representing an option, be it engine, trim, paint, wheels etc.

In general, all current engines from GM use L to designate engines; LQ4, L05, L33, L98, L79 LT1, they use M to designate transmissions; MN6, M22, M21, M40, M38, they use J to designate braking components; JB3, JB5, JB7, JB8, they use Y to designate interior decour package; YE9, YG3, YG5.  Search for GM RPOs you will see what I am talking about.

5)the LS1 didn't come it a truck an the LQ9 didn't come in a car.  You are confusing RPO with an generalization.  The LS1 RPO didn't wasn't an option on a truck when you bought it, just like the LQ4 wasn't an option on the Corvette.  Until 2001 the Vette only has one engine option.   The trucks get 3 options.

6) I don't know where I made a personal shot, but if it came across that way please accept my appologies.  We are talking about LS-series Gen III and up engines, they started in 1997 with the LS1.

This is the last reply I make so on to the original topic.  



First, LS is not the generation, GENIII, GENIV, etc... is the generation.

DO/Will i need to cut the tranny tunnel for the auto setup?
Will a set of shorty headers be a good idea to run too?

thanks
pat

Pat the tunnel won't need to be modified as the 4L60E is the same as a 700R4 (and 4L80E = TH400) which came in these trucks.

If you go with headers, I would get S&P versions.  I know of people using them and they are very satisfied with them.

Also, have you checked my post on the website truck? 

I am using the truck manifolds on mine, I just had to modify them..  I couldn't get the F-body versions to work like I wanted them to...

All GM EFI vehicles use in tank pumps.  You can run an external pump, Keep in mind they are LOUD and the fuel actually cools the pump and quietens it down and they last a little longer.

You can run a Blazer Tank like I am doing and you can use a TPI pump to supply the fuel.  If you run the Vette Regulaor, you only have to route one line to the motor...

If you do decide on an external fuel pump, the Walbro 255 is what a lot of NBS guys run.  They make them for internal and external applications and they usually run from $100 to $150.
