    LSvtec is good when...you can fully build the block and don't have a working GSR, have a great deal on a LS block and don't have a working GSR, or have an LS and want more power without buying a whole GSR.

    If you have a running GSR you'd be a fool to swap the block.

    usually people build an lsv because the cant afford a gsr and the have some parts already.....i would keep the gsr and buy an ls crank and rods just knife edge the crank enough to clear the oil squirters...and you have the nicest lsv you can build....its an ls in a gsr block...
