Surprised that it is less than the LS9.

Makes zero sense to drop close to $18K for a motor that you can't run because no ECM is available....

I think by the time they start shipping the engine they will have LT5 engine controller ready to be shipped.

snow birds will like this. Best application to Drop in their gmc pick up trucks as an alternative to diesel motors for hauling your 5th wheel.

when GM comes up with a controller it will cost around 3k more & I would say it will not be tunable.

My guess is that the LT5 crate motor will have its own ECM (not the locked down version of the ZR1).

$18k gets you a hell of an engine from a tuner. It's not an awful price though. I'm sure there will be volume places selling it for $15k or so, which honestly isn't bad for a warrantied 750hp engine engine.

If the forthcoming ME turns out to be a POS, I'm plugging one of these into a resto-mod C2.
