I am waiting for you to show up to my house so we can street race on the highway up front.
Its 4 miles long.
Plenty of shutdown room.
You can hit 150 mph in a Corvette & Run safe.
Intestate 80 You can Hit 220-240 Mph Safe on your way to Joliet.
There is an 18 mile stretch that is open at night.
You can even stop and run the 1320 Fuck I have done it for fun.

SAFE happens at a track. 150+mph on surface streets is never safe. Simply because of the emergency crews that hang out at the track because of what happens at the first sign of trouble at those speeds.

Safe is not an empty stretch of road endless miles from help where you need to worry about what might be in the road in front of you, things like pot holes, cracks, rocks, gravel, debris, and furry woodland creatures. The track is a prepped surface. Checked regularly for real safety. Just because there are no other cars around does not even remotely begin to imply safety, kid. You would learn these things if you would just go visit a track.

No one care about what you think from the Pontiac V8 World.


No one cares about you from the drag race world.

I am repeating your claim bud. You said you build and hope it to live and race for 10k. I am only pointing out that at $1,000 those pistons are gonna cost you $.10 per mile.

Start Your C5 Corvette and put a Brick on the Gas pedal & let it Redline at 6,000-6,600 rpms and walk away.
I bet it does not even last 1 hour.
It will Blow up you LSX B8.


They Put the Cheepest parts they could into your B8 .

I'm gonna stop replying to such nonsense as a whole. The B8 uses mostly stock LS3 parts with the substitutions being the bowtie LSX block and the aluminum forged pistons that drop compression for boost. This engine is affordable as a crate because it uses off the shelf parts and no real R&D or making any parts actually went into making either the B8 or the B15.

And that is why Ford and Dodge have absolutely nothing to compare with either of these engines.

Pffffft, that's cheap. You should have seen what my replacement titanium hips cost. I feel like the Bionic Man. I can start kicking some butt and continue forever before the titanium wears out.

Been a dream for a long time now.
I remember showing Bill those Crower Ti Rods when he was Alive.
We started talking about the Mighty L88 Corvettes.
He really Loved them because he owned a 1967, 1968, & 1969 at one time back in the day.
He talked about Road racing & domination.
Then Racing on the streets here with his.
Said one day you will build an engine with those Ti Rods & put into the Maniac.

Did some more research last night on 2618 & 4032 Forged piston alloys.


It appears 4032 is safe typical for a power adder of 200 Hp.
It has a lower thermal working tensile strength & prone to cracking pushed real hard with high peak cylinder pressures.


A few Big Block Chevy guys have pushed to 850 HP but I think the pistons used in BBC is beefier for more mass material placement.


Every late model GM engine that was produced with Forged pistons are 4032 including LSX 376 B8 & B15.
The theory is the higher silicon content allows for longer skirt & piston ring land life.


2618 Forged Pistons are used by Porsche.


I read they last 70,000-80,000 miles for drag racers driving on the street 2618.


Going to have my Diamonds Hard Anodized.
Spend the extra $$$.
The Ring Lands will last even longer.
Likely get them coated HPC.


Creeping up to $1500.
