    go to the ls1tech forum and ask this question. you will have vendors fighting over you. if i were you i would buy a short block forged stroker motor from texas speed performance for about 4,300. save your short block and have a spare. then you can build it over time.

    while we're on this subject, can someone explain to me how/if/why on crankshafts? As in if your just blowing money, is there a point to 1,100 more dollars for that lunati LS1 forged crankshaft, over what comes already with the above kit?

    egale's products are made over sea (ie china). callies has some that are made over there too like the compstar seires (like i got) but callies does all of the finish works over here in the states so it helps off set the cost. Lunattis is top of the line shit. the difference is the materials used and their streangths. i woundlt trust egale as far as i could throw them.

    my grand plan over the next couple years is build the top end of the LS1, then buy the shortblock and swap everything over. which, top end should be complete approx 1st of the year, so long as nothing major occurs. so, hell, maybe this time next year

    this was my thinking. i have been looking at the APS TT kits

    as far as cam goes. i would def go bigger. i thought mine was gunna be big and its not bad at all. so wait to get a new cam and just do it with the stroker
