    stroker kit

    I own a 01 trans am and i am considering putting a strocker kit in it but i heard you could only bore an ls1 block .010 without sleeveing it, curious if this is true and what other problems i could run in to?

    A stroker kit won't require a bore. Just a hone.

    Stroke a stock bored LS1 to 4.00" and you get a 381.88 cubic inch motor.

    I believe a 383 is as large as you can go with a stock block.

    get a bigger crankshaft and/or bore your cylinders out (in simple terms, make your cylinder diameters wider and have a longer crank to increase displacement, but you dont have to do both)

    yes its expensive. couple grand for real kits. i would only have a shop do it cuz u have to machine the block for the extra length of the crankshaft and you have to bore the cylinders perfectly without screwin it up. one little slip up and you need a new block

    its an expensive project, but causes massive increase of hp

    someone correct me if im wrong on any of that

    $10K will get you a longblock 402/408.


    And I don't like going with a 4.125" stroke on a stock bore LS1. Piston rock can become an issue because of how far it moves.

    I can't imagine you would need to take more than that off unless you tossed a rod or had something stuck in a cylinder.

    Yeah, I've heard only honeing an LS1.. not smart to bore it.. the LS6 block is a little better.. but still not recommended.. one of these days I need to run my numbers to see which block I have.

    Luos, we need to match up your car with my camaro.. would be a good race!

    I didn't run it, but those are actual ET's for the car. I had a friend give it a try because he wanted the experience of running a car down the 1/4.
    I think. I know the 17.2 is legit, not 100% about the trap speed.
    Found the slip.

    I guess they run 15.5-15.6 stock at sea level.
