In addition to the list above, have also build the tranny, ordered up new suspension gear (coil overs, etc) Brembo slotted brake setup, upgraded the driveline and bumped the cam.

Shooting for 850 at the wheels.

Nice build. I don't think you will have any issues hitting your power goals. Is the F1R on there for mock-up purposes or is the engine being installed with it on?

Stingr69 12-01-2011 12:55 PM

You need something to catch the driveshaft when it flys out. :thumbsup:

Wrong gear.

Very nice! What expecting for horsepower/torque?

Damn you must be phsycic.

He didn't list cam specs, tire size, or what type of racing if any he is doing. Where did you draw this conclusion?

Argent,

Definately looks like a nice build.

lol...

Nittos (stock rims) don't have the cam specs handy. I'll be using it just on the street, with a run on the dragstrip maybe 4-5 times a year. It's just the right gearing to get that heavy ass off the line.. :D

Yeah you should be fine with that ratio. With a 28.7" tire you should be around 6500 RPM in 4th gear at 141 MPH. I will caution you about spending money on the stock diff though. With the manual trans you will be MUCH safer with a 9" setup or The LPE Diff. Less money in the long run.

SSOOCH 12-01-2011 05:06 PM

Very nice Agent Utah. You should bring that thing to some of our events here in Utah. If you ever go to DYNO Days at JDP Motorsports in Sandy I'm pretty sure you'll win for highest RWHP when you're done building that thing.

SSOOCH 12-01-2011 05:09 PM

When are we going to see that thing run at RMR or Track Days out at MMSP in Tooele?

jrpxxii 12-01-2011 05:50 PM

Love the build but I would be worried with a LS3 stroked to 429ci with 9:8:1 and using LS3 heads with an F1R. The McLeod RXT is awesome but I am guessing it is only a matter of time before the trans fails without upgrading it as mine didnt last very long. I would highly recommend a driveshaft as well as you have put together a great build but the stock ds could cause some big issues if it comes apart. Good luck you are going to love the F1R.

LSX-80MM 12-01-2011 09:31 PM

Nice build...definately will need to do the 9" sooner or later,And I'd say bout 15lbs of boost and you'll be hitting your goal....keep us updated:thumbsup:

This thing will make tons of TQ, and will be happier pulling less gear. It will be fun cruising though.

2010 SSRS 12-01-2011 11:32 PM

wow, another Chevy monster to rule the dragways

Darth V8R 12-02-2011 01:41 AM

Looking great! Hope to see you at the track in '12 :)

Isn't an LS3 with clean up bore and 4" stroke a 416 cid? Is this build using even more than a 4" stroke?

Agent Utah 12-02-2011 08:23 AM

That's the plan. Haven't been to the dragstrip since High School. I'll for sure bring her out this year..

Agreed. I posted the original build sheet. But we have since ordered a built tranny, and upgraded the driveline.

Thanks. Yeah, the intake turned out nice...

JDP Tech 12-02-2011 04:15 PM

Wow, very nice!
You'll have to swing it by here in Sandy when you bolt it all in so we can take a look!
What suspension parts did you order? You'll probably need some solid subframe mounts, solid engine mounts, trailing arms, toe links, and heavy duty axles to put even half that power safely to the ground!

Nice build so far! :w00t:

Feel free to call, PM, or email us anytime!
