Wait till you tune one for street duty with a t56. I envy the simplicity of your 1200rpm timing window.

Go through all of the idle tuning stickies at the top of this page. Most all of us skip some steps every now and then, because we know what parts are in the motor, and there is a ton of working...

There is a recentish trend toward high compression with boosted motors that would lead you to believe the 243 heads are the way to go. I would disagree if you had asked about 93 octane gasoline,...

What you ask can be done, but why would you? you spend lots of money on hard parts, then try to skimp on the electronics. You are shooting yourself in the foot before running a marathon. An '02...

My thoughts are that you want to control or read the actual boost or vacuum the motor sees, and the intake manifold is the only place to be sure you are getting a real reading. That being said, if...

Your rebuild assumption may be drastically wrong. I have borescoped a 280k mile boosted 4.8l that still had crosshatch on the bores. The LS platform was originally designed with the idea of a 300k...

Just for a little context, I have a full weight (400lb) GTO that would trap 129mph in the 1/4 on 10#s of boost with the old rear mount on a motor with only pushrods and springs upgraded. It would...

Sorry, I drunkenly quoted the wrong post. I was referring to the guy with the CX racing turbo that made a similar noise. In your case, it would seem there is no good news at all.

With a 4.5L Whipple feeding much of any motor, you may as well plan on ditching that 200 trans for a glide. Have you actually researched how much air that blower will pump?

So do I, but that is not a replacement for a worn out shifter. It is a replacement stick for a stock shifter. I have a lss on mine, but my shifter springs are not worn out.

Since the only thing you need to open up are the valvecovers, I see no need for new hardware. A 100k mile LQ4 is a prime candidate for heavier springs, hardened pushrods, and boost. Anything else...

Why are tapered or gasket choices? That depends entirely on the hole in your head. Also, those old "rule of thumb" heat range ideas are fairly outdated. As you noted, you would quickly be using an...
