ls1 vs evo

i own both a 2001 z28 and a new evo 2004..plan to sell the camaro the power is great but the traction and handling are poor compared to the evo..camaros handle like a mack truck once you try driving a lancer evo..yes i drag race some but not every day maybe a few times a year

the 2001 camaor used $18k + $10k motor upgrades/chassis to make it 400rwhp..581 lift cam heads headers lsx intake all the parts you can add + parts under to make it able to take the extra power and clutch of course..i saw posts above of twin turbo ls1 yes cool lotsa power but to take that power you need a forged ls1 cannot use the stock block compression too high..twin turbo ls1 c5r block or similiar anywhere from $25k-40k if you get radical with the parts for the motor alone

throw $10k at a new evo which i plan to do when i sell the camaro, you could easily make 500whp with stage upgrades and a larger turbo..$40k total but you have better handling AWD nice interior etc..

as for durability for $10k i just might pull the original motor and put in the avail 800hp rated shortblocks then start with the turbo upgrades..

anyone looking for a good condition used 2001 z28 with 400rwhp? haha
