I commend you on your goals to eat the LSx cars. Some of those owners are so full of themselves....

The only thing that Im raising a question on is why such high compression?

It puts you in a worse position if you want do S/C or turbo in the future.

I ran nitrous for years on my stock bottom end 93 LT1 (w/ heads&cam&LT headers), and am bored of it.

Im now putting in a used procharger kit that I got at a good deal

My biggest complaint on juice is I feel 'guilty' everytime I hit it, knowing that a refill is $50 and will involve 20 minutes of wrench time to remove the bottle, heater, jacket, etc.

Good luck on your build !

Sleeper cars are the isht! haha and reason for the compression is optimal power N/a I plan on switching to a turbo ap in about 2 years on this car at which point the motor will be out once again but only changing pistions cam heads and intake and having the rotating rebalanced for the new pistions

I Like To Pull The Motor And Trans Togather Myself,but I Havent Pulled A Motor Out Of A Vette.to Be Honest You May Not Have A Choice But To Do It That Way.ive Only Had Mine About 3 Months,but The One Time I Was Under There I Didnt Notice A Trans Crossmember.i Beleve The Rear Of The Trans Is Held Up By The C-beam And The Front Is Bolted To The Motor.so Leaving It In The Car Seems Like It Would Be A Real Pita!

hmm thank you for the insight it was actaully useful I did (for once) agree with my father earlier today I thought about it and taking the trans and engine out in one shot would probably be simplest and would make it a little easy to do a little accs. work such as short throw and redoing the center console. I will keep you update motor should be near complete monday have to braze my pickup to my oil pump and torque it down

ill be watching my car looks just like yours from what i can see.i dont know if you have a factory shop manual or not but there is probally 1000 pages or more.tons of stuff you wont get in a autoparts store book.so if you dont have one you might want to get one.i like the fact that they are made to cover specific years

seems it was that cam base circle was to big. I sent it back to Lloyd and sent my pushrods back to summit. Lloyd and I talked and are changing the grind of the cam from the (all messured at advertised duration) 234/242 612"/612" 111LSA to a 236/244 612"/612" 110LSA not a big difference just a little more top end power.


Lets hope that I don't have to go threw the hassle of grinding my rods, thats my last choise if this cam does not clear

Just moreee waiting

Also had an issue with the timing set I bought off a friend so a
Lunati adjustable billet double roller is on its way along with headers, wrap, ties, and E-cutouts

On the leaving the tranny in the car question, we just put a 383 in my 87. We put a jack under the tranny and unbolted the Torque convert from the flywheel and left her in. Also this route let us keep the hood on the car. Last night we put the motor back in and bolted her back up to the tranny. I was very skeptacle at first of leaving the tranny in the car but it was real easy.
