    With bigger injectors I would definatly change the fuel pump to at least a 255 in tank.

    Sorry i haven't posted in a while. Been crazy busy with the holidays and all. Any good brands forr a fuel pump? Also with that do i need to look into upgrading fuel lines or will the stock ones run fine?

    again sorry for the lack of updates but nothing really to update, build has been on hold. Still looking into any good reviews on fuel lines/pumps as well as any tranny upgrades to look into. I am kinda new to this whole scence so any info would be awesome

    tranny upgrades? cooler and a stall,

    get a slightly bigger stall than what you think you want, (i.e. if you want 3600, opt for a 3800)

I also want ot put in a stall and 3.73 gears. is there anything else that i might need to pay attention to or replace while doing all this?
    Lid and catback to start. Port the stock tb. Then cam and heads. Not sure if the 92mm intake would make much of a difference over the ls6. As far as gears go def get 4.10's.

    everyone seems to be on the same page with you justinmc978. Ill most likely go with a 4000 stall. all the research ive done on tranny coolers people say to get the biggest one possible. I know that heat is an instant killer when it come to auto trannys but do i really need to be getting a tranny cooler for a vehicle that gvws at 26,000?

    yes you want a cooler no matter what, especially with a 4000stall. i almost want a larger cooler even without a stall

    Yuo'll be okay with any standard towing cooler. 2-3 row. Make sure you keep it low on the radiator to increase air contact.
