The LQ9 came out of a Silverado SS mostly, although I believe a couple other models used it briefly before switching to the aluminum LS2.


Main difference in LQ4/LQ9 wasn't the block, it was that the LQ4 utilizes dished pistons, and the LQ9 utilizes flat tops, increasing compression.

The LQ9 is a 6.0L GM truck engine. It came in trucks such as Escalades, Silverados, and Sierras.

This LQ9 came from a Cadillac Escalade. There is an LQ4 block which was built with dished pistons for FI. The LQ9 I have is the same style block TSP built my 408 from. This one is stock dimensioned though meaning LS2 rotating assemblies will work.

I am looking for a good base for an FI motor. Would this engine fit the bill and why. Also what is the weight comparison between stock ls1 and this block. I assume it's an iron block as well?

I had initially intended to build this for FI or go NA with it and spray it. I was considering using forged internals for the 364 CI engine. However, I went with a stroker engine built by TSP that also uses the same block. That is the 408 I have. We pushed this to 750/806 which is all the 2.3 liter supercharger could handle. At present we have a 4.0 Whipple sitting on it. haven't got the plumbing hooked up yet but we are hoping to go beyond 800/800. I am not a real expert but I chose the iron block for the FI because I was concerned about the strength of the block itself undergoing the extreme pressures and twisting. I had some signs of that type damage to my LS1 that was putting down 465 NA. My guess is that the Iron block weighs about 80 lbs more than the aluminum counterpart. There has been quite a few discussions concerning the iron vs aluminum blocks in the Forced Induction section.

Hmmm I might be very interested then. I'll need it to be shipped to Portland Oregon however. How much would that be?
