    LS3 budget build

    L&G,

    Good morning, just wanted your opinion i just bought an ls3 engine and want to get the most HP but at the same time keep it in the budget range i am going to go the turbo route i was told to go with a 74mm or 76mm but what else do you recommend? I am planing on porting the heads and putting ARP studs/bolts on main, rods, and heads. I was told i can push give or take 800hp to the wheels... I will appreciate all your feedback thanks!

    Do you recommend a valve/spring change or just leave them as is? I'm going to get the heads ported

    not sure about the the L92, but its more important depending on your cam. generally valves are going to be fine unless you're going really extreme, but if you're going with a high lift cam, which I don't really think is all that necessary on FI, you're springs should be fine.

    No such thing as a budget friendly FI build.
