Well, it all depends.

I'd say 1995 if you're strictly taking about the motors, because OBD1 is easier to mod.

But in terms of the cars themselves it has to be 1997 thanks to the SLP LT4 SS cars. Not that there's many of those cars out there but with a decent tune (GM put the LT1 tune on them, and it robbed HP) they can be LS1 killers.

I remember INTMD8 from Speed Inc bought one, dyno tuned it and it picked up like 20 hp. I think it was 308rwhp after he was done or something?

93's. :finger:

No MAF to obstruct the induction, speed density computer, close ratio six speed was available, and they're just faster.

There's a "best" LT1??





haha



Just kidding.
DING DING DING!!! We got a winner...

My favorite (OBD1 or 2 not a factor) is a 97 SS or a 96/97 WS6!!

The thing I always found odd was the fact the LT1 6 speeds were a better tranny than the LS1 version. More factory hp with a weaker tranny , go figure.

From what I know that's because Borg Warner sold their T-56 division to Tremec who subsequently moved production to Mexico. I went through 3 T-56's in my 99 T/A (brand new at that) in less than 9000 miles.

You are correct , sir. That was the reason, nothing some Viper internals wouldn't cure though. I hope I don't destroy my T56 but it just might happen . I figured I'll kill the 10 bolt first . At least I hope so.

i like the 96-97 ws6 rated at 305 hp.....by the way i am a noob here, whats up guys. as for the six speeds...the internals other than the input shaft will interchange from lt1-ls1. and from what tremec,mcleod ind. and gm told me tremec always built the t-56 just gm had to stam there TM on it. but they may al be wrong huh
