    Well the turbo D is going to outperform a stock LS, or even a mildly modded LS, so if you're looking for maximum power then that's the route I'd go...

    Yes, it would need to be tuned, and I would recommend having it done professionally. And yeah, it probably won't be cheap. The LS swap isn't going to be all that cheap either though. Keep in mind you'll need a B-series transmission and axles to make it work, not just the motor...
