    Shelby 1 Olds Supercharged Aurora - How About LS9 or LSA?

    The Supercharged Aurora was mentioned on here and I see that it was used
    in the Shelby 1 with only 320 HP:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shelby_Series_1

    Edit: Just remembered the STS-V supercharged Northstar which was 460 HP
    which would probably drop right into the Shelby 1.

    I wonder if the LSA or LS9 would have fit in the Shelby and how
    much heavier is it than the Aurora? Anybody?

    I was more familiar with the small and big blocks from the 60s
    and 70s and my impression of the modern LS blocks is that
    they are all about the same size externally - is that right?

    The Aurora is a transverse FWD and the STS-V SC is a north/south RWD. The differences are vast.

    I'm talking about a motor swap, would the motor mounts
    and bell housing match up? I'm not talking about putting
    it in an Aurora, but rather a Shelby 1.
