  • The supercharged 6.2L LSA is similar to the LS9 and debuted in the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V. The LSA has been SAE certified at 556 bhp (415 kW) at 6100 rpm and 551 lb·ft (747 N·m) at 3800 rpm. GM labels it "the most powerful ever offered in Cadillac’s nearly 106-year history". The LSA features a smaller 1.9L capacity supercharger rather than the 2.3 L variant of the LS9. Other differences include a slightly lower 9.0:1 compression ratio, single unit heat exchanger and cast pistons.
  • On February 9, 2011 Chevy Announced that the LSA will be used in the 2012 Camaro ZL1; it adds an additional 24 hp to make 580hp, 30 hp over the original 530hp rated ZL1, with some stock 550 hp examples in existence.


  • At the 2006 SEMA show, GM Performance Parts introduced the LSX engine, an all-new cast-iron racing block based on the LS7 engine. It offers displacements ranging from 364 cu in (5,965 cc) to 511 cu in (8,374 cc) (4.25 in (108 mm) Bore x 4.5 in (110 mm) Stroke) and is capable of withstanding 2,500 bhp (1,900 kW). This block incorporates two extra rows of head-bolt holes per bank for increased clamping capacity. The six bolt steel main caps are the same ones used on the LS7 engine.

    Chevrolet Performance LSX Bowtie block includes LSX specific six-bolts-per-cylinder head bolt pattern, billet-steel six-bolt dowel-located main bearing caps, extra-thick deck for maximum clamping force, extra-thick cylinder walls allow increased bore capacity (maximum 4.200-inch bore still allows 0.200-inch minimum wall thickness), true priority main oiling system, main web bay-to-bay breathing holes reduce crank windage,orange powder coat finish, machined bore at 3.880 is ready for final boring/honing.
