    Any updates on this? Like the combo. Watch that fast under boost unless you got the burst panels but still watch how much boost you run through it. We ran a smoke test on a couple cars after about a month of boost and they were all leaking.

    They were the stock truck injectors, stock truck intake etc.... It was literally a complete bone stock LQ4 I pulled with 80,000 miles on it. I didn't touch a thing on it, even ran the stock truck exhaust manifolds. The engine in stock form made a fair amount of torque, and by design that was...

    Whats the purpose of the vehicle? Weight? Trans? All this will be needed to say which cam would fit the best in your situation. And with a cam only setup on yours depending on Cam a set of 30s would be fine. A cam only 6.0 setup with 317 heads can get you 420-450 depending on how wild you want it....

    Is that 2500 plus the 875? 3400ish? I would allow for a few hundred in misc at least. I'm just seeing this from a money stand point. Is that including the LSA heads? Complete with valves/rockers/springs? LSA heads are very nice, great casting, but even used I see they carry a decent price tag. When...

    How many threads are visible? On mine I used an impact to back it out. I wonder if the bolt is cross threaded or there is just a bunch of gunk and it is stuck. You could try some pb blaster to try and loosen the bolt up.

    With money being an issue, honestly I'd leave the heads and compression alone. Then call one of many vendors that deal alot with LS engines to spec a custom cam to work with the 9.4 compression. Slap the LS6 intake on and be done with it for a while. That combo would only be down a slight...

    As FBJ stated, it is still a good idea to change your gear oil and take a look at things.

    You can also use an online calculator based on your speed/rpm and factoring in your transmission ratio and tire size/height.

    You can count how many times the driveshaft turns with one revolution of the rear wheel. If it turns about 3.5x, you have a 3.42 gear. If it turns 4x, you have a 4.10/4.11 gear, if it turns 4.5x, you have a 4.56 gear. You get the idea. Marking the driveshaft with a visible paint stick/line...

    Hard to guess. It's been popular over the years to shove the 6-speed rears in the auto cars for the 3.42's they had, or someone could have shoved 3.73's in there. Since it's a new vehicle it would be a good excuse to do a rearend oil change and check for yourself ;) that's what I'd do.

    You would have to mill a fair amount to get the combustion chamber down from 71 to 64. So much so that it could get into intake manifold mismatch. It would be more probable to mill them to 67-68cc which would bump you up ( or very near) in the 10:1 compression range. A nice custom cam would...
