have a high mile 6L from a escalade-
want to freshen it up -rings bearings- hone etc
what should be put in it?

how many miles on the motor ?how was the oil pressure ?if you do remove the rods you will need to resize the connecting rod big end bore.can you do a leak down test ?maybe look at TSP for a oil pump and valve train combo .

I am about to do the exact same thing on a 6.0 I will be installing in a mustang

lol this might end up in a fox body too..
200k on motor-- ran but - tired.. leak down i could do on stand but its coming apart for sure so..
i emailed AI - phil replied i am waiting on the price for alum heads
so far ARP bolts
ls2 timing chain
custom grind ai or texas or ed curtis cam
arp rod bolts
should have it apart by the weekend and then see if it needs a bore or a hone will do..
if its hones out should i keep the stock pistons or toss for some summit or speedpros?

I would get the cam from AI,they can best match the port flows with the right cam.

for a street car - no track days-- is it worth the upgrade for alum heads or should i send AI the cast iron ones to work over?

Rod bearings, main bearings, cam bearings, new rings, block cleaned and honed should get you started in the right direction.

Add ls7 lifters and ls2 trays to the list. What intake are you going to use ?

im thinking a fast 102 now and a nick williams 102 cable tbody

im lost here... since when did LS motors come with Cast heads... arent they all aluminum????? except for like the 99 3/4 ton's id deff switch to aluminum... Why not l92 heads, and ls3 intake and a 92MM throttle body for the ls3? square port heads are better for 6.0 engines if they get a cam to match

afaik this is from an older escalade-- it says 6.0 right on the block-- and its definitely not alum heads.. as theyre all rusty..
06-26-2012, 02:04 AM
i dont know what L92 heads are and how much a LS3 intake costs.. i want alum heads thats why i emailed AI to see what they could sell me as a package

L92 heads come on the 6.2L, if im not mistaken, and they are aluminum. 317's come on the LQ4 and are cast.
