Its more related to an LS3 than it is related to any previous variation of the LT1.
IMO, GM needs to quit making things confusing and reusing engine designations. Someone pulls up in a 70 Z28 and says they have a LT1..... Ok, which one of the 3? Hey GM, use the LT designation all you want, but there are other numbers!!!!!
Seeing people getting giddy about seeing an LT1 that is nothing like their LT1 just promotes this marketing ploy. Just keep in mind, this one doesn't make your opti LT1 any faster. It'll more likely get less respect than than it does now. You'll hear things like, "Oh its just one of those LT1's." ;)
