^LMAO.

I'll be surprised if you did the same motor on E85 and not be close to 450-470rwhp.

You will love it either way you go.

Re: Project... Im back in the game

Any idea how bad the engine is? It would be awesome if new pistons/heads and a rebuild would be all it needed! Nice pickup Peter, good luck with it!

I can definitely be that one guy that talks a bunch of shit before the race, even though I don't own a car that would even catch the Vette's tail lights!

Re: Project... Im back in the game

Those LS's are badass. I have an older coworker with a cam and longtubes 2003 5.7 and it makes about 430whp at Doug Rippies. I've driven it, fun car with no headaches.

A local 335i just hit 100k miles and is about to shoot for 700whp, it might enough.

The previous owner had it at a Chevy dealer to get diagnosed before I went to look at it. They took both valve covers off, drivers side a valve dropped and they said the motor doesnt budge by hand. They also said the block is cracked but im not sure if thats true.

Will know more once I start dissecting in a few weeks. Would be nice if the block was okay! But im betting on a new shortblock and at least one new head.

Re: Project... Im back in the game

Update!

Started to work on this beast after some long delays. Had some major issues getting the title transferred to me, but its finally in my name as of last month. Phew!

I told myself I wouldn't touch it anyway after I got married last July, until at least Nov, well the title thing kept me from touching it just for peace of mind. I had plenty of other projects on the table too, bathroom renovation was a big one that im almost done with.

With spring on the horizon now that its warming up, I decided its time to dig in.

Motor should be out int he next week or two. Started removing stuff yesterday, draining fluids, got the supercharger, alternator, radiator fan, belt, and wiring out so far.

I will post more updates as I have them.

Re: Project Corvette

Small update. Engine is ready to come out this week.

Removed the steering rack, PS, and other stuff, headers are loose but I need an 02 wrench, socket doesnt fit in that area.

Some carnage pics while engine is still together, eager to see more once the heads are removed.

Re: Project Corvette

In the words of GoatBlower, "put some 88's on it!"

Big Bang Theory
http://www.hotrod.com/how-to/engine/...g-bang-theory/

Junk yard core. They thought it was a 5.3L truck block, but it was the 4.8L. Only mod was opening up the top ring gap, off the shelf Comp cam, parts upgrades and some work on the heads.
900hp @ 15psi
1203hp @ 26.8psi

Engine survived 60+ dyno runs at over 1000hp and stayed together with no issues.

Or you could put a big boost 4G64 in it, just saying,.....
