    Engine Build pics and specs

    So almost done with this setup going into the WS6. 383 stroker, T-rex cam, JPR S2 heads, fully forged bottom end with Mahle pistons. Block is an LS6. Lots of stuff going in. I'll keep updating with pics as the engine build is going along. Block is an LS6 that's been machined out by me to 3.905" cylinder bore diameter.

    in all total probably about $2000. Like I said, I did all the machine work so I saved a lot there. Plus it helps with a big box of snap on tools I was thinking about going huge with the new LSx block but eh, I'm looking to add a set of twin turbos or a D1 procharger with a custom front mount intercooler. I don't know I'm still heads or tails with it.

    Plus, a properly sized single will make as much or more power.

    I ran Engine analyzer and damn! Lets see here, with a supercharger and the intercooler, custom blower cam, full bolt ons, it's predicting 768rwhp. With the large single turbo, T80, it's predicting 1128rwhp, with the twin turbo setup, it's looking like 998rwhp. Choices choices. I'm playing with the cam specs as well and I've managed to squeeze out a good amount. I love this program! I know its pretty accurate cause I used it to build up my old engine. Predicted 560 rwhp and ended up putting 575 rwhp. The only thing that makes me frown away from the turbo systems though is the maintenance required on those things!
