    Some changes to the parts list:

    Deatschwertz 95# injectors
    A bigger custom cam
    head gasket will be .040, so I will need a different gasket than I have
    Headers will be replaced with Kooks with 2" primaries
    TFS LS3 heads
    9" rear is going to be in my future probably sooner than later lol....estimated hp with my mods.

    The main thing is I need to find a shop to do the machine work who isn't price gouging. If I can't locally I will be driving down to Tick Performance, 6 hours away....

    I am thinking I am going to need headers with 2" primaries for this build. So I am adding that to my parts list since my headers are 1 3/4" primaries.

    I ordered my main cap studs! After I get these in the pistons in I can drop off my engine at the shop after I find one that isn't price gouging that is.

    I have another few things that I may add to my parts list:

    Gz Vacuum Pump or some other brand
    Mast Motorsports windage tray(it is made to clear 4.125" strokes)
    2" X 3.5" Kooks headers
    Either 3.5" to a 4" merge y-pipe and a Mufflex 4" catback or just 3.5" Kooks True Duals. I am not sure which way to go at this point.

    I have decided to keep the stock PCV setup but go with a dual catch can. Here is what I will be getting from Radium Engineering:



    You can order them with any fitting you may need as well and the fittings are o - ring sealed which is nice.

    What is the purpose of having two, unless you are using that much oil? Seems a bit excessive, no? Maybe I'm missing something?

    One for the valve cover and one for the ls6 valley tray. Essentially one for the "clean" side (which isn't actually clean) and one for the dirty side. Without this you can experience blow back and have the oil renter the intake at high rpm. Also with a stroker this issue is amplified. In addition my stock pcv won't keep up with my mods and a single one won't cut it for my 14:1 compression combined with my 4.125 stroke.

    The other option is a vacuum pump but those are really pricey. Also it is suggested for FI but at higher boost levels, at what point I am not sure though (dual catch can that is).
