The GM LS really is just the next version of the SBC, except with some revisions and made out of aluminum so that it ends up lighter than some cast iron 4 bangers.
Though when you get into 4 bangers, the GM ecotec is right up there with honda, and for the longest time honda couldnt touch the GM factory teams in FWD outlaw drag racing for power or speed. They have the fastest and quickest FWD 4 cylinder record in outlaw, the fastest and quickest 4 cylinder in pro extreme class, and the quickest ndra turbo street record and as of 2008 it was in the only fwd 4 cylinder car to go faster than 200 mph in the 1/4 mile. So honda isnt running away with the best 4 cylinder title.
