View Full Version : New setup seems to be running fine...

12-18-2005, 04:28 AM
LS6 Block 347, Stock crank, billet caps, ARP Studs, Callies Rods, ARP Rod Bolts, Diamond -2cc Pistons, Morel Lifters, EDC Cam 231/242 .637/.622 @ 114*lsa, Cloyes Hexadjust Timing Set, JWISS Chain, LS6 Oil Pump and Valley Cover, ETP 11* 225 Heads, Trick Flow 8.100" pussrods, Stock Rockers, ASP Underdrive pulley, LS6 Intake (needs to go in a bad way....will Santa bring me a 90/90? ), clearanced stock valve covers (no baffles or oil shield). Stock Water pump, manifolds, cats, y pipe.
Pushing through the ATI 8" 4000stall converter, Rossler Trans braked TH350, stock Driveshaft, and stock POS 10bolt. Nitrous will be hooked back up later. As will the Kooks 1 7/8" headers and Y Pipe.

Still needing to get for finishing touches:
LSX 90mm Intake
Nick Williams 90mm TB
9" Rear 3.90 gears
Bogart Gold RT's
Strange DA Shocks (one o my QA1's needs to be sent in so why not upgrade?)

I should be able to run the rollers around 6/7 Jan. Will attempt to get some pulls with stock exhaust and then next day do the Kooks if I can work it in the schedule.

Took her to the track tonight, 24miles on the new engine, talk about break-in procedures and driving it like you stole it :) Even the though the track was slick as hell, I was able to match my previous best mph but the et was way off. Old best 11.791 @ 113.1, tonights best 12.79 @ 112.9. The old run was made with LT headers and True Duals. Tonight it was on Stock Manifolds, cats and Y pipe! I am sure once the Kooks are in, I will beat the old best by a few mph NA, even though this combo wasnt setup for NA, but it was made for juice. Cant wait.
Never had the experience if sliding all through 1st, 2nd and even into 3rd! Tongiht was skating inside a 3300lb pair of skates. Some more miles on her, some nitrous, tires and hold the hell on.

You'd better believe that Charles, speaking of you, there is a real estate agent with your name here. I'll bring you back the magazine with your name selling homes, could be a new way into some panties :)
