    I thought the largest you could stroke a LS1 is 383ci...that 418 might be for a LS2 block.

    +1 to checking out Texas-Speed.

    I know you can only bore them 10 over without resleeving them.

    What short block are they going to be using? It cost roughly 1500 to re-sleeve a ls-1 to get in the 400ci category.

    With a 6.0 block, I wouldnt go any bigger than a 408.

    Sounds nice
    I'm going to be obnoxious and ask what the cam specs are, and compression.

    You can, but I wouldn't. Hone is all I like on the LS1 block.


    I would go for upgraded parts over the Eagle stuff. They make good stuff, but not as good as others. The only Eagle part in my motor is the crank, and to be honest, I am not thrilled with it.

    I went Mahle for the pistons and Lunati for the rods.

    I wouldnt bore it out either. i was just stating that you can only take them that far.

    and there is definitly better stuff out there than eagle parts. do some more shopping, it may cost a little more but youll be happier down the road.

    More and more people are having problems with the Eagle crank plug. I dont think TSP is even offering Eagle cranks anymore because of the high failure rate. Either that, or they are not reccomending them to anyone. A Callies Compstar or dragonslayer is a great crank.

    Go back and look at the GMHT magazines from two or three months ago. they did a budget 408 build from an LQ9 and its pretty nice.

    Had issues with mine leaking.
    It wasn't the rear main, although we replaced it anyways.

    It appeared to be the flywheel bolts....needed thread sealant. Eagle has an open design....not thought out that well.

    Maybe if I ever get a good job and throw a turbo at Slowass I will refresh the motor with a new crank and make it a 404.

    stroker

    Have desided to give the eagle parts a mis .THis is one of the top speed shops here in Australia and they have excellent reports throught the racing and offroad competitors , http://www.comeracing.com/ The block only needs a power hone of 0.005 th with a torque plate fitted to keep it all true to form . This will make it 408 cc with there stroker kit fitted or 6.7ltr in our money . They are fitting l92 heads but will need to raise the compression to suit the bigger heads because of the drop in air flow,the cam will be there Lsch 464. Lobe lift in .325 ex .325 Duration in 288 ex 295 . This is a mild cam and should give a good torque band starting at 2700rpm through to 5500rpm all there cam specs are on there web site . As this is going in my comp 4x4 winch rig I need lots of torque and driveability at low rpm but also need to kick ass when I nail the loud pedal to the floor Cheers all Adrian
