    LT 1 build up

    Quick story paid for my 95 z28 when i was 17 joined the marines at 19 deployed to iraq twice and on the second deployment a drunk driver lost control and hit my PARKED car, totaled it!!! I had on it a 8lbs procharger kit 4.10 gears, 6 speed, 75hp wet shot NX, 1.6 comp rollers, 28lbs injectors, and computer work. and im not going to list the cosmetick sh!t but it looked great. Now here is my question I pulled the motor / tranny interior brakes sh!t like that i am contomplating a lt4 top end kit and i want to run near 15lbs boost besides lowering the compression, so it will be safe. What all can you guys help me out with. Imput please. I am aiming for 375 or so flywheel hp with out boost.

    why LT1? I know you've got the engine and everything. It's just that there isn't a hell of a lot out there for you in the aftermarket.

    Pick up this month's Hot Rod magazine. There's an LT1 powered Z28 running 9's NA. Maybe you can pick up some tips out of that.

    Why not a ls1 you ask? i love to see the look on a ls1 owners face when i pull on them like they are standing still. Granted i am not saying i can beat all LS1 cars, majority see nothing but tail lights
