I didn't feel like hijacking anyones thread, so I thought I'd just go ahead and post mine up here as well.
My build is going to be fairly modest. I'm doing an L92 swap due to the fact that my LS1 blew up last year at an autocross. This engine is being setup to provide good low end torque, and with an emphasis on being reliable with sustained high RPM usage. I estimate that it will see 80% of its time running SM in local SCCA Solo competition, 15% of its time on the street, and 5% of its time at HPDE events in the future.
A friend of mine is actually doing the swap, he is on here by the screen name "wild_ron."
Last time the car was running:
Starting point - ruined LS1:
The engine started off life as an L92 truck engine that I purchased from NineBall:
The engine will be reusing my old F-body oil pan, but will be using an Improved Racing oil pan baffle to prevent oil starvation:
It will be using a Katech C5R timing chain:
Katech belt tensioner:
The cam has been custom speced by Patrick G to meet the above mentioned goals. The best that I can describe it as a "Super ASA" cam; the duration is very similar to that engine but it has a much higher lift. He also specified longer pushrods for valvetrain stability and Patriot Xtreme double valve springs:
This build will be "plug and play" with the existing 2001 Camaro ECM. As a result, I'm making use of a set of LS3 cam gear and front cover that I sourced from Lingenfelter, and taking advatage of their new reluctor wheel convertor. I've also sourced a Racetronix knock sensor harness:
The engine will breath through a L76 intake, and is using a Professional Products fuel rail setup sourced from SDPC. The heads have their intake valves replaced with LS3 hollow stem variants.
At this point, the build has stalled because I didn't have the proper cam bolt (the L92 unit contains a valve and will not work with a non-VVT cam setup), and I don't have the appropriate crank bolt. I received confirmation from Lingenfelter that those parts should arrive by the end of this week.
