Default Aluminum 441 build on corn

I have decided to make a build thread for the new motor going into the car by hopefully Spring 2015. The car is going from a cam only LS1 to an LS7 based 441 and built 4L60E to a PowerGlide. The motor is in the beginning stages. The shortblock is complete and now im in the process of deciding on what cam and heads to run. It will be a high compression all motor setup, which I may decide to spray in the future and why I went with Callies/ Wiseco forged internals. I plan on this being a 90/10 strip/street setup. Your opinions and advice is welcome and Ill keep the updates and pics coming as I go. Im sure Ill have a lot of questions so ill be visiting this thread quite frequently.

What sort of compression are you planning on running? Also what bore and stroke are you running? I built a 454 with some aftermarket casting ls7 heads...my thread is in my signature if you want to take a look....Hoping to dyno mine next week...

I have read through your entire build thread Briou and that's going to be one badass build for sure. I'm patiently waiting for the dyno results . A lot of the questions I had have been answered in your thread and I'm sure I'll have more as I go through my build. Anyways thanks for checking out my build as I continue to follow yours.

I plan on running around 12.5/ 13 to 1, somewhere in that range. I'm not even sure on the limits of e85. It's a 4.125x4.125 motor

I think you can you can run higher than that on static compression. Best to consult your engine builder though. I have no idea what dynamic comp. people usually run on E85 though

yeah this is how inexperienced I am with e85. I will consult my builder once i get a little more figured out with the setup. Im going to go for as much compression as I safely can on e85.

At least that is a good reason for a build to slow down...better than a lot of other reasons for a build to slow progress...

I would be at least 14:1 on corn for a NA motor.

If I can be of any help on the induction side of things let me know!

got the heads bought. LS7 castings ported by cary. Im going to have them cleaned up, new valve guides and milled. I havent had a whole lot of time been working crazy hours to fund the build and hopefully have everything said and done by next spring. I have also been working with Martin at Tick performance the whole way so far, great guy to deal with.
