What really bothers me is that they went with an LS1 instead of an LS2. The LS2 is a much better motor... is it due to clearance issues? Warranted, someone could just as easily turbocharge the F22 that's already in there to get similar numbers for probably half the cost, but where's the novelty in that? Nice car.

No boosted F22 will be able to match the torque or the torque curve of an LS1.

horsepower is going to cock slap it at the quarter mile.

torque is far more important for road racing, autocross, and daily driving - or rather, torque delivered in the RPM range where you want to use it.

the reason people go with the LS1 over the LS2 is probably due to the fact that a used LS1 costs about half what a used LS2 goes for.

that said, I love the F2xC series. Rev to the moon, bulletproof inside, relatively lightweight and they come in one of my favorite cars to drive.
