Without the valve relief my compression is going to be 12.4 which I believe is a little high for pump gas. I can find a wiseco piston just like I need but it is +4cc.
    Have weisco build a set of pistons, not much more. I had them build a custom set for my lsx build a few months back. (Gm bowtie lsx block, 4.155 bore, 4.100 stroke, 444 cid, custom roller cam, T&D shaft mounted rockers, 11.2 compression for pump gas. Holley dominator ecu to fire it off and a long list of other parts. Good luck

    I'll need a wide band installed since it doesn't have a bung for it currently I'll probably have that done when the exhaust is fabbed up.

    I'm currently using Glowshift for my oil temp & fuel pressure gauge. I plan of getting their Elite 10 Series Wideband A/F Gauge, Part # GS-ET02W $174; comes with the following:


    • 1/16th Inch Black Face with Magnified Tinted Lens
    • Gauge Depth Measures 15/16 of an Inch
    • Analog Display Reads from 10.0 to 20.0 AFR
    • Digital 12 Volt Wideband Contoller Unit with Data Logging Output
    • Bosch LSU 4.9 Wideband Oxygen Sensor
    • 13 Foot Sensor Wire Harness
    • 6 Foot Control Unit to Gauge Wire Harness
    • 5 Foot Power Wire Harness
    • Weld-In Sensor Bung
    • Gauge Visor
    • Mounting and Installation Hardware
    • Free Lifetime Technical Support
    • One Year Limited Warranty


    Linear Data Logging Outputs:
    • Linear Narrowband Output: 0 to 1 Volt
    • Linear Wideband Output: 0 to 5 Volts



    When I had a shop weld up my exhaust I had them go ahead and install a bung for the wideband.

    Starting to get my 8.8 build together as well. I sourced the axle tubes from another 10 bolt as well as the Hiltsy mount I'll need.
