I just read that the 2006 Lade's get a 6.2L L92 V8 with 395-400 hp.

Awesome. Looks like LS7 technology meets the smaller engines!

Excellent!!

What do you mean they meet smaller engines? to my knowledge the Corvette still used a 5.7 L. If the new lade uses a 6.2 wouldnt that make it bigger?

The 5.7L is dead. The Vette is 6.0L or 7.0L (Z06) powered now.

The 6.0 Escalade motor (LQ4) is growing up to the L92, which is 6.2L.

Not sure if the Vette will get the 6.2 displacement, I'll have to dig on that one.

But a lot of the goodies (ports) on the LS7 is finding its way to the L92. So it is making a 50 hp jump in power for 0.2L of displacment.

The Vette won't be going to the 6.2L, most likely. As far as I know, it's going to serve a lot of truck and SUV duty, and stay away from the cars--just like the current truck's 6.0L did. The Vette's 6.0L is already at 400hp anyway; just look for more to come its way, a little bit at least, in the future.

IIRC the 6.2L (RPO L92, look in your glovebox) was only in the newest body trucks (current gen).

If you see LQ9 (I would expect to) that is the 6.0L HO.

6.2 began in model year 2007, and actually rated at 403 HP. 6.0 in 2002-2006 was rated at 345 HP. If you have a 6.2 in your 2006, it would shock me. Also, quite honestly, I think the 403 HP rating is conservative. My 07 will do a 0-60 run consistently in 6.5 seconds.

That is a good proven reliable engine. Until the 6.2 came out, also the most desirable GM truck engine IMO.

Are any of the internal engine parts of the 6.0/6.2 interchangeable with the older 96-99 5.7 Vortec engines? I know the blocks and head port configurations are different, but I am wondering about the head bolt pattern, bell-housing pattern, and crankshaft. I have a 98 5.7 in a 70 olds with a roller cam and aluminum (aftermarket) heads, and am just wondering about other swap possibilities.

No, they are not related in any way shape or form.

You can get a 5.3L LM7 for chump change @ car-part.com, I have seen >50K mile complete engines for $400.
