Default Re-Sleeving LS4's for larger displacement

I'm in the research stage of upgrading my '02 Regal with an LS4. What do you think of re-sleeving the block for larger pistons to get more power.

anything that can be done in theory to the ls1-6 can be done on the ls4. well, except for crank changes.

Even cranks shouldn't be a problem given enough demand/dollars! I think a good topend Intake/heads/cam should produce some real good power (400-500HP) outta a 325 CID LSX! Does anyone have bore/stroke specs on a LS4? I tell ya a decent intake with a LS6 cam alone should do damage!

I plan the standard LS2 4" bore with pistons to match. SLP has an L92 head/intake package for LS2's, and with a Livernois Motorsports Stage II cam, GM High Tech Performance did a dyno with this combo and got 546hp. Of course the trans will need to be built much stronger. I'm not sure which way to go in the cam b/c of the Active Fuel Management/DOD.

Technically, we are 323ci, not 325.

Some pretty good pics there. Is that where you are getting your swap done?

No, I wish I had the cash to have someone do it for me but I'm on my own. That's just a site I found during research.

Sorry! 323 not 325! I was hoping it was a 327 not 323!

I know it's off subject but do the 5.3's have the same 6.098" connecting rod as the LS2's?

Yes the LS4's connecting rods are 6.098 inches long powdered metal rods. Not sure if they are the exact same p/n though. I imagine that GM would cut costs buy using the same parts that are common to differant engines though ie: rods, rockers, pushrods . . . .
