So I have a pooped ZD30 in my 2006 wagon and I can't find a fairly priced 2006 4.2. So I am now looking at an LS2 conversion. From what I have researched the L76 and L98 are pretty much the same except the L76 still has the DOD internals and a little less HP. I have found 2 engines for sale one is just a complete L98 with no box and the other is a complete L76 and a 6speed auto for the same price. I am trying to weigh up the pros and cons of each engine and I am also trying to figure out if the patrol 5 speed manual or the GM 6speed auto would be better. So any info from this fine forum, positive or negative would be greatly appreciated. Do I got L98 and manual or do I go L76 and 6Speed auto?
