    Yeah, but how much is the labor going to cost? You dont just pull old shit out and put the new stuff in. You have to grind some stuff as well.

    I want to find a ls1 used then buy a stroker kit and do it my self. But that wont be for a while

    Would you like to make it for me? I don't like I could build a wooden box, let alone a rear seat delete.

    well i would have the money if i did it.. im not going to do it unless i got the 1500 or so the are gonna charge for install... the shortblock idea isnt bad but thats even more money initially it will even out once you sell yours... but untill then you are out the money

    You don't have to use Lunati. I've had this convo with Curtis MANY times, talk to him and he'll set you straight.

    All Eagle Competition assemblies include our forged 4340 chromoly crankshaft, our forged 4340 chromoly H-beam rods, forged JE pistons, Clevite77 race bearings, and JE Rings. All are designed for internal balance.

    If I were an appearance guy....I'd consider it, but I really can't justify those things to myself.
