Default 6.2 RPO L92 for DD/occaisional track days?

Hi All,

I've got a car I use as a DD that I'm prepping for occasional road track days. Currently I'm running a stock LS6. I have been looking at an LS3/L92 built longblocks, also considering an RPO L92 (escalade) pullout motor with cam and l76 intake. I haven't found much about how these bottom ends would hold up, but the thought is a 230-ish duration cam, long tubes, and an L76 intake on the otherwise stock motor. suggestions?

thanks

-Tim

well i think things are pretty much just like all other LSx stuff, stock bottom ends take a beating.

i would think your going to be alright. do a ported LS6 pump double roller chain, better springs and all that, you should be good.

I should also mention I plan to run with an LS1 computer, so I know I'll need to change the reluctor wheel. Isn't there some cam timing hardware that would need to be removed as well?

thanks

Tim

Another question is how big of Cam you can run in the 6.2L L92 without clearance issues... Anyone?
