I don't think ANYBODY could talk me into going from a 6.2 to a 5.3 in my '10 Camaro....Not unless I was going max effort twins

I would rather the stroked 6.2, I think. Rather than stock stroke and more cam

I mentioned the "end" goal of 700, but that of course wouldn't be all motor. Probably end with a PD blower with lower boost to achieve that last bit. But that would be in a few years..

Then again, I say 700 until I get used to it. I just want a stout short block. So I can throw...whatever at it. But, I can assure you, it will never be a MAX effort car. lol

So, I am building for 700 now, but may get to 900. Who knows. I will know the short block will be good though

When I said 5.3 I thought you were going forced induction. If that's a plan for later, than I think cubes are KING

If you have the budget, just get it over with and get the Dart 427

No problem man. I appreciate the input. I def am looking at cubes on a small budget. Which initially lead me to Livernois. They just haven't "sold" me on their short block. A Dart 427 just isn't in the budget. It will have to be an aluminum LS3 block

I would ask Kyle what he can do for you. I know they do a ton of different engines. You never know when he'll give a crazy deal on something. Best of luck and keep the thread updated

What do you have in a stroked LS3 platform?

FYI, Thompson is on vacation until Monday, December 31st. I'm sure the wait will be worth it.

Sounds like a Texas Speed
427 Cleetus-Mcfarland-Leroy 1.0 short block
could be a potential contender.

I used to own a 94 Mustang 5.0 . Livernoise was doing Ford stuff back in the late 90's. They've been in business for a long time. They seem to have a good reputation.

All things being equal, what would be the horse power difference between a 416 and a 429 LS3 block?

Assuming the same heads probably 1 to 1.25hp per cube difference. Negligible

Is there a difference between a VVT block and a non VVT? Is it just in the valley cover and the timing cover? I kind of want to keep the VVT

Blocks are the same. Only difference is front cover, VVT harness on the front cover, and the actual VVT mechanism which bolts to the front of the cam. Valley cover...your thinking DOD. VVT has nothing to do with valley cover.

I got the engine out today. Tore it down and took off a rod cap. Tried spinning the engine over. It is still froze.
Pulled the engine with the torque converter still attached. I hope I didn't mess up the transmission input shaft. lol.
Any advice on getting the converter off with the rod still stuck?
