Default Build Thread: Lsx, 4L80, GT55-94: Street car WS6

Well I picked up this car from MightyMouse in May of last year. Car was a monster but being the power junkie that I am I needed more and my hand was slightly forced LOL

After some issues with the stock crank and ERL block I decided to go LSX block with a dragonslayer crank.
















Picking up the new motor







Once I got the motor back in the car it was of to Tiago's shop for some fabrication for this new turbo







Tiago laying down some welds



Testing fitment





5in downpipe















Finished!

Got the car back on the ground and drove it for a bit. Going to the dyno this week. Numbers will not be posted until after tx2k13 and the next Texas Invitational



Tiago is the man! If he says he is gonna do something he does it and does it well! I am always impressed with his work and he will be the only fabricator I use! He provided hours of advice and days of work! But he enjoyed the work he was doing most of the time! LOL!!

Seafish helped track down parts and supervised the job LOL!

Dopefedz/Bizzatch both come by and helped out when minor issues came up.

Blkcoupe90 did the majority of removal and installation of motor and trans.

MightyMouse: answered any and all questions I may have had, no matter how stupid they may have sounded lol. I owe you big time Dave!


I wont lie I considered putting the project on hold but these guys didn't let me. I am grateful to have such a great group of skilled/talented friends.

I have over 500 pics of the motor build/this entire process. As I go through them I will add more pics.

How many cubes did you go with? Crazy to see a crank break like that. Def dropped a coin or two on that setup..should be a monster.

Same cubes 364ci...

Car drove great yesterday during break in. Can't wait to see what it does on full power!

If the car goes any faster than it did before I'll be happy if not no big deal. I just wanna drive it and have fun.

Old turbo was maxed out at 1060rwhp this one has much more room to grow if I can get it to hook and hold the power it should go faster but I know it's not gonna happen on just one track outing.

Looks Nice, any particular reason for cathedral ports other than to reuse your intake?

Already had em, why not use em?

I wanted to keep the combo as similar to what it was before besides the new block/crank and turbo. If they become a restriction I'll consider buying the newest/greatest and latest heads.

LOL fuel system will be the limit right now I believe. May switch to a single Weldon if needed.

Makes sense. I guess I assumed they where new heads and didnt think that you just reused the whole topend. looks good none the less and congrats on getting it back on the road!
