But again, it kills me to work for free and all of that sounds like a lot of work.
It's a full day or 2 on a LS C5 Corvette working clean sanitary.

Done it for Brandon in his race shop.

PTVOC Clearance 6.0 L V8 with hyper cast piston flat top and 230 @ .050 " spec cam with L92 LS3 heads I recall was right on limit of safe.
.530 lift with rockers.
I had .080" intake and .130" Exhaust PTVOC Clearances.
Clay checked. Sliced in 1/2 with a razor blade.
Measued.
Gave me 1 hour shop time got my checks done.
Got in an argument that day again.

YOU WANT THIS ENGINE TO BLOW UP ON THE CHASSIS DYNO OR NOT !
I MAKE MY BLUEPRINT CHECKS OR I QUIT AGAIN.
YELLING BACK AND FORTH.

I GOT MY WAY.
