    Default Conversion from 327 to a LS1 or LS2

    Hi just after some advice on what would be the best option . Ive been given a mid mount Stevenson ski boat that originally had a 327 chev . The only thing missing is the engine , still have the marinised manifolds etc .
    Am i better off putting a chev back in it or update to newer LS conversion for better performance , fuel , reliability .
    Any help would be much appreciated .
    A big cheers in advance Jimmy

    HI
    running GM motor starts from 3000. eg 290hp/350. I would think cheaper than a LS.

    Add in the cost of wiring, fuel system now being efi and new manifolds for the ls engine staying 350 SBC is looking better as the day goes along

    Yep stick with the 350, if you want better economy later switch to efi and aftermarket heads.
