    If you dont mind me asking...? how much did you spend on your engine from block to tune to upgrades the whole nine yards? I think it just would be easier for me to have a number in my mind instead of just sliding the debit card...

    Right now it has been running for about 2 years. I think it will be 2 years next month.

    7,500 miles...roughly.

    do you think if I put 12,000 miles a year on my motor i would be fine? or this kind of engine just not going to be able to handle that?

    I don't see why not.
    Maybe keep the cam size down a little.

    I think it idles like a 230/230 would in a stock cubed LS1.
    On the highway it does fine, but I also have 4.11's. So I am around 2000 RPM's when going 75MPH.

    Idle RPM's = 925

I know that if I was putting a cam in my stock cid LS1 then 224/224 to 228/228 would be good to go. But I was told that the sze of the engine pays a factor in the size of the cam that's needed, and I don't know too many people who has a 408 in their car. So if anybody reads this and has some good advice please feel free to tell me. Thank You
