Dropped off the check for the deposit on a new motor.
:D
1,800 miles, I must have my head examined.
;)
I'm having a local shop build me a 408, forged internals, studded mains, all the good stuff.
11.1 CR, Stage 3 LS6 heads, and a cam somewhere in the 242-246 range. The SW headers are in their boxes, going dual 3", no cats/mufflers.
:eek:
Pray for me Padre, that this sickness may end!
:D
Further bullitens as events warrant.
Edit-If anyone wants a spare engine, my original engine will be for sale shortly. It has Patriot S2 heads, and a Comp 230/228 cam, and fresh pushrods, all done at 960 miles.
I think I'm gonna go have a beer now, doh......
:drink: :drink: :drink:

Padre-You're no help on this, LOL!
;)
Dblue-From the reseach I've done on ls1tech.com and others, I'll be happy with anything over 475 at the wheels. I've seen some with a bit more aggressive cam do 515, but I'd rather be pleasantly surprised.

Hmmm..... I saw a 2000 Beetle for sale that needed an engine, wonder if it will fit :)
The guy who's building the engine told me he put a 454 in a CRX, so why not?!

Josephra- I'll be running the stock clutch 'till it frys, then a Spec. I don't know about going too sticky on the tires just yet, I can't afford to do the whole driveline at once, doh!
:)
Sy-You have a PM.

I'm with Tails. I gotta buy a home and marry a woman, both those take a lot of my frivolous mod fundage that wasn't an issue back in the days of the Camaro.
