After pulling down my LS1 for my project it seems it has been rebuilt once before and clearly services have been ignored as it's full of gunk (guy ended up taking it out as it was over heating..this would explain it). So now I'm of 2 minds and thinking I might as well just stroke it.

I know 1 can't go 408 with an LS1 alloy block without sleeving (at which stage you might as well just go iron block) but can 1 get away with a 402ci stroker? It has slightly smaller bore diameter than the 408 (4.005" v 4.030" in Lunati's kit). Didn't think this really warranted its own thread in the internals bit as most of you guys in this section seem pretty on the ball

On a positive though, my Chevy performance sump arrived this morning so the parts pile is growing.

Considered it but here in Australia folks think they're worth blood diamond money.

LMAO 10-4 on the guns!!!! Do you guys got Summit Racing down there? If you do, they have a iron 6.0 that's already machined and clearanced to build a 408. Just has to be final honed to fit your pistons. They claim you can take it to 1400Hp. $650.00 on sale, $750.00 reg. Otherwise I'm sure you can find a 6.0 iron truck block laying around, No?

I do like my guns, member of the SSAA here (similar to your NRA) and enjoy IPSC. Although they've taken a holiday while I get to work on this engine. Texas also happens to have COTA which gives me my motorsport fix.. so who can hook up a Rigger with work (Iron workers in USA I believe?)

Plenty of that out here! Texas is booming with work. Best place in the world. Because I say so. And all the people here from other places might say where they are from is better, but they are clearly here for a reason!

quit inviting people to texas. too many of you sausage smokers from democratic states keep coming here to escape your shitty economies. the problem is you bring your fucked up ideas with you. texas was way too close to being a democrat vote in this last election. I dont want to be the next california.

i think it's funny that the democratic poster child state of california is so fucked up that people are moving to texas by the boat load...but when they find a new home in a good economy that happens to be republican, they stick to their democratic beliefs that they just ran away from.


Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Yup. It is sad. I think the nation is slowing becoming blood sucking liberals by the mass and there is no way to change it.

I got one of the rears done tonight. It just looks great to me. I should have done this from the start. I am looking forward to seeing the car outside tomorrow in the daylight where I can see it at a distance.
