    5k and just needs a new block I'd say sure. Don't trust welding of the block. I'd trust it as much as I'd trust a fish bowl for a space helmet.

    valves kissed the piston


    crank smacked the bottom of the skirt


    look at the far right outside edge of the head across from the spark plug. the piston hit the head so hard, it pushed the head material outward. you'll see the bump.

    Don't give up yet! If you really want the car, and can afford another $2999.00 you can get a REAL brand new LS6 rated at 400HP (Not 405HP, but the same motor) that will fit right in. You will need your intake manifold, and electronics, but if they are salvagable, and it sounds like they are, then you'd be looking at a sweet deal. Go to crateenginedepot.com and enter part number#89017653. In case you're wondering, yes, all your bolt ons will fit this motor. With headers, CAI, and a cam, you'd be at around 475HP at the crank! Think about that before you let this one go

    Ide get him to go down to 5 grand or something, drop a stroker motor or save for a 402/8. Wouldnt be a bad idea. Thats what im looking to do. Find a camaro/firebird/trans am with a blown motor and get it cheap! I cant see spending 16 grand or more for a decent f-body when the ls2 GTO is 20 grand. This could be a steal.
