      I have a fascination with this family of motors and how they seem to fit a vast variety of applications - show me them!

      I'd really like more power in my Miata (and I miss my old 'Vette) but from what I've read about the cost of the swap it would probably just be cheaper (not to mention MUCH less time consuming) to buy another C6 than to try to put an LS2/LS3 in my Miata

      This thread title is misleading, the ls1 one belongs in everything.

      Not sure I understand the thread title, they honestly belong in anything and everything.

      Has there ever been an Alfa GTV (the '80ies kind) with an LS swap? Should be a good candidate as it's transaxle from the start.

      There are a few of them converted out there, but fairly rare overall.
