I wonder how differnt this new "LT1" is from the current LS engines. Looks very similar to me, but I'm no expert on them.

There are other more technical articles out on the internet now.

The bore spacing is the same. The biggest thing is that it's direct injection. Also a very high compression ratio (11.5), with a unique piston dome. The heads are all new with a twisted intake runner, the intake and exhaust valves are swappped side to side, and the intake port entry is very high above the block deck. It also has active fuel management (runs on 4 cylinders at light load) and it has variable valve timing.
