The LS1 is part of the General Motors, generation lll  lineup of small block engines produced from 1997 to present. Being the only V-8 engine used in the General Motors line of rear-wheel-drive cars and trucks. The only power-plant used in the Corvette since 1997. The Chevy LS1 engines for sale are all 5.7 Liters in size, or more commonly known as a 350 cubic inch motor.
Commonly called a mouse motor or small block motor, don’t mistake it in any way for a big block Chevy engine. The small block Chevy is the most famous modern engine in the world that set the precedent for overhead valve [OHV] engines in 1955. More to the point, [OHV] engines became the ”standard” for valve train operation for the majority of cars, presently still in regular use.
In many ways, the LS1 is superior to any small-block that came before it. A deep-skirt, six-bolt-main block, with structural oil pan and other carefully engineered features, helps make the LS1 a strong, smooth running and dependable engine. A high lift camshaft actuating big 2.00/1.55 valves in symmetrical-port cylinder heads helps make it a un-compromised performer.
For many folks researching a replacement engine for a Chevy 1500 pickup a GMC pickup truck or any GM full sized SUV, this is a great update if you currently have a Generation lll small block V8 in it already. It is a direct bolt in, as long as it was equipped with full electronic fuel injection.
Plenty of aftermarket companies make a harness and computer kit which allows you to install a fully equipped LS1 in a vehicle that was made before computerization. The kits are well priced and the benefits certainly make it the ideal engine swap for hot-rodders or vintage car owners.
