there are a lot of people who actually swear by the LT due to it not being an aluminum block... and some people say it can handle more power. but im not an expert
The LSx engine just makes more power...period. You get an LSx engine and LTx engine with similar mods or engine sizes and it is pretty much guaraunteed that the LS will make more power. The design is far ahead of the LT engines.

I have an LT1 but I would go with the LS if I could. The aftermarket support is wonderful compared to the LT engines. Right now (or even back when the LT engines were all the rage) if you want forced induction on an LT you have very limited options, especially in California. The LTs are difficult engines to make decent horsepower out of without a large amount of cash too.
