Good to see another one started. I went that way years ago and had no issues with it on the LS1, it could boost from a dig - thanks to converter and auto... and it got better than stock mpg.

Why not bore and sleeve the lifter bores out for 0.904" Chrysler lifters? Then you can have more aggressive lobes without any wear penalty. It works and the fatter torque curve is worth it. 0.842...

Impressive low lift cfm, the larger port LS7 is even better. The top end cfm is far less important. Anything near 300cfm by 400 lift is outstanding. An engine that can supply that will have great...

Good point, I have no experience with the iron LS blocks, but was just pointing out who makes the good sleeves. If a bore is toasted it'd be easier to get another block I'd have thought.

My thoughts exactly Stevie. I could fit 2 Scania 730hp filters in my trunk lol, but still need room for a suitcase and bags around the meth tank and cage mounts. The K & N's flow good, but I don't...

I run a 102TB on my twin turbo LS3 that has a 218/222 cam in it. I can release clutch at idle and idle around a carpark for as long as I like.
