    roads were bone dry, and it was just rebuilt. I am waiting to see what actions the shop that built the engine is going to take, prob none. but I am looking at a 408

    ya all of those will swap right over. although you might want to go with a bigger cam (up to you). i ended up paying around 4.5k after some upgrades (callies crank, rods, ARP bolts, etc) and shipping. you might be able to find a used stroker, but i didnt want to waste time.

    if you want PM me your email and i will send you a copy of my invoice so you can see what i got

    at that point i would just say do a custom grind cam. Im sorry to hear that, what sucks is for that price you could have had a stroker. And that 4k is for a short block with rotating assm. but hopefully the mech covers it

    well he is not covering it. Might not have been his fault. But he is giving me a new lq9 block for $500. And he said he will cover all the machine work to be done on it all I have to do is get the stroker kit. What do you guys think 408-418-or 427. My goal is a mean street machine to put the imports around here in check. na for right now but maybe a lil spray later

    yeah I am thinking 408. forged and maybe a 200 shot later on down the road. should be hovering around 9. high but still 9's maybe. but I am fine with 10's

    well 11 seconds is about how long it will take for that thing to snap... I had my engine doen and broke the 10 bolt before i even got it home from the shop. My ls1 put me in the 11's so witht he 408 I am hoping for high to mid 10's and with a bit of gas hopefully 9's
