"As far as the foot-to-the-pedal experience, there's a world of difference there, too," Hardy concludes. "The blown L98 had a limited powerband of 2,500-4,700 rpm, but the LS engine comes on strong at 1,500 and pulls right up to 6,000. If I could go back and do it again, I'd swap the L98 for an LS engine as quickly as I could. If I ever own another performance-based C4, it won't be without an LS of its own."
