    Monster Build advice needed

    I havent done near as much research as i have thinking about this. Im wanting to take a LT5 and build a beast out of it. 1990-1995 ZR-1 Motor. Im wanting to do head work, cams, bore, stroke. All the goodies to make a bad azz strip maching. I currently have a 1994 Camaro Z-28 M6 w/a blown motor. It was going to eventually be a project but its happening sooner than expected. I was wandering if ya'll could help point me in the right direction as far as parts and everything for this build up and how much i could possible look at pushing. I know im goin 2 put the "Viper" T-56 in it and a nodular 9" rear under it. I just don't know what suspention to put under it and all that other stuff.


    Thanks,
    Steven

    I wouldn't drive one for regular street, but you can't beat them for a strip only car.

    I hope you have 20K+ to spend on the project. Just the motor work alone will be over 15000 probably, if not more. It's a cool idea, but parts for the LT5 are extremely rare, and even more expensive. For what you'll spend on the LT5 motor, there are cheaper ways to get to those hp levels with an LT1 or LT4.

    this company makes 32 valve heads for a standard small block. you can probably do some modification to make them fit an lt1. http://www.araoengineering.com/

    well you also have to factor in that the lt1 is a reverse cooling engine so r the heads gonna work for that?

    one of the magazines had a car that the owner had dart heads for a gen 1 small block on his lt1 with the factory lt1 manifold, so I would think you could make these work.
