    Its not going to blow up, unless someone performs poor labor somewhere. It should be a nice setup, are the heads just stock LS6 heads or do they have work done to them? The C5 Z06's usually dynoed around the 360-375 RWHP range so I would suspect you would be in that range as well.

    The LS1 is a 346 CI, not 350 btw

    I didn't mean any offense by the 346 CI comment,

    Are you an auto or manual tranny? The street tires would hurt your times, you would be looking at mid to low 12s with that power on street tires.

    I hate to jump on the "get this too" bandwagon, but I hope you upgrade your clutch!

    Im guessing you got pushrods too right? Plus get a oil pump i highly recomend it, even if you just do a cam get a oil pump.

    With as much power as you are going to have and a 6speed, its highly possible you will blow up that ten bolt.

    Do some reading in the drivetrain forum. The stock 10 bolt is very weak. They can be broken with stock HP levels from an LS1. If you do any kind of hard launches, even on street tires, you are on borrowed time on your 10 bolt. It will grenade and probably sooner than later.

    Everyone says that about the 10 bolt. yes it is weak but that don't mean it will break just because you do a couple mods on your M6. I have been moddified 420 RWHP/ 390 RWTQ for a year now, and had 4.10s installed over 3 months ago. Not a one problem thus far. Of course I know I am asking for it. But come on, that isn't that weak for a 10 bolt. Granted I am not out there doing 6000+ RPM dumps at the track. But I do have a lot of track time on street tires. You should be fine with your rear end for now.

    I do however agree spend the extra 100 or so dollars and upgrade your oil pump, never hurts to do a little insurance while you are in there.
