For more power than a ZZ4 crate engine and better gas mileage than a ZZ4 would it be difficult to put in a LS2 '06 vette engine in my 1980? Would then that engine hook up to a L460E tranny that I would have to put in too? And would it all fit OK? Anyone out there done that or an LS1 engine which is about the same size? I am basing this on the net horsepower of a ZZ4 at 355 which would make the bhp about 300. The LS2 has a bhp of 400. Would it not make sense then that the LS2 would out perform the ZZ4 because of more bhp in my 80 vette?
