Best LHS Body Engines

Which one is the best according to the people out there.

The 3.5L offers the most performance. But, I think the 3.3L was the most bullet proof of the 4 that were ever offered.

3.5 is all I ever owned in a LH so I will have to go with that.

I have enjoyed the phenomenal performance of my 3.3 for the last 7 years.

3.3 is a great, long lasting, low maintaince ,good performing motor.

I own both ist gen motors and the 3.3 is quicker off the line,and smoother.

The 3.5 has to get the rpms up to build power and they both top out at the same speed !

(damn computer limiters)

Me too! My old 2.7 was awesome, but with now having 2 3.5s I didn't want to tempt fate.

I'm wondering, is a 3.5 to a 3.5 HO a straight switch? what are the benefits of the HO? ( which funny enough isn't on the list!

I've owned 2 cars with the 3.3 and they are damn bulletproof. My dynasty was the dirtiest most abused car ever and still rocked. It also sounded like a v8 due to my cone air filter + some exhaust leaks in key places. Sounded amazing. Scared all the ricers.

Well... I have the 2.7 and its been great to me thus far so i'm voting for that. If I had to choose an engine no doubt it would be the 3.5 tho.
