Various members built engine components
Edit by SSE 4 2SS: This thread is to list the components used in your build (rotating assembly) if you wish to share. It is to assist others planning builds in seeing the variety of components used in your build. If you have a built rotating assembly, feel free to add in other engine components...

Discussion is welcome, but will occasionally be cleaned up as the thread moves on.

I know there's a lot of you guys that have built your engines for boost. Maybe we could get a thread going for what components were used and what HP/TQ levels it was built to withstand etc. I know Ive been doing alot of research but it would be nice to see a thread where all the top guys listed what they have built. Good idea or a pipe dream?

Edit: I had a couple bite so here is the proposed format (thanks Tiny). Share what you'd like.

CI? - CR?
Timing Chain?
Oil pump?
Aftermarket Dampner?
Anything else

Modifications (pulleys, boost controller, etc)


Cats or No Cats?
Cat back?
Cut outs?

What was the goals for the engine hp/tq wise? Current numbers is you have them and would like to share.

Guess I'll start. I broke the ringlands on #5 in my OE motor at 11 psi and 715whp and i knew it was gonna happen so i had HKE start on this motor before it happened.

I built it for minimum of 20 psi and planned for about 1200 whp eventually and i believe it will take quite a bit more. Its just a fun street car that will probably never see the strip. Built it more for road course track day events about 4 times a year.

Just got the car back with the twin BB PTE6766 turbos at 25psi. Made 1281 rwhp and 1118 rwtq.

Motor: Built by Erik Koenig at HKE racing engines.

LSX block
4.125" Wiseco -23CC blower pistons coated by Polydyne, 9.4 to 9.5:1 CR
Dragon Slayer 4.00" crank
Callies Ultra billet I beam rods
Wiseco GFX rings and custom tool steel pins .200"
ARP hardware throughout
Morel linkbar lifters
PatG spec'd blower cam
Mast Blacklabel 305 6 bolt heads LS7
Melling HV oil pump
N-Motion LS7 double roller timing chain
GM LS7 intake and exhaust rockers
HKE springs and push rods
LS7 intake

Squash dual 400LPH return style _10an feed, -8 return
ID1000 74% IDC at 20 psi injectors
ALKY 4 gal methdual nozzle system
Tuned on 93 octane with 16oz Torco for about 96 octane. Tune by James Karger

Twin PTE6766 turbos, custom fabbed by SNLPerformance.

The rest of the cars details are in the sig line

Tiny and Bull that's exactly what I was looking for. It helps when you can see the component's of someone's build that's working well. As for keeping this organized I'm not sure how we can do that since Jamie seems to be taking a beating in every thread. If we get some more guys to chime in with their builds/component lists we can delete the other posts and only show the build lists. I know some people don't want to share all their secrets but its a start for a rookie to see what it takes to build a high performance and somewhat reliable (in Jamies case) machine.

Just be careful - that's the internet...

It's all in the shop that specs out an engine, builds it and eventually tunes it! Just because it's been posted here doesn't guarantee its quality!

For collecting ideas this thread is a good idea though!

Always willing to help people out, I frequently do. I also frequently poke fun and mess around in threads. If someone asked me for advice, I'd be happy to help.

I could give you sbc info all day but my Camaro still has the stock L99, never even had the intake or rocker covers off. I can say if it blows, if the cylinder walls are still good, Ill just have it honed, put a good set of rods, pistons, rings, a good VVT cam, dod delete lifters, good arp hardware, and bolt it back together. Stock heads, intake, crank, etc.are plenty good IMO for a forced induction application.

2SS45th 08-06-2013 09:16 PM

Depends on the desired hp levels. FI can be but as tame a NA, all depends on dynamic compression, not boost. Yes boost comes into play in that equation, but boost really means nothing to a motor. After 800 wheel I'm going for a new crankshaft, and after quadruple digits I've got a new block and heads headed my way, 6 bolt or bust. I'll go through my build sheets and give you guys a full rundown of my motor soon.

2SS45th 08-06-2013 10:11 PM

Sorry blown motors cost a butt load of money when they're built for stupid high horsspower, but they do, and always will. Here you guys go anyways, a fully detailed build sheet. This motor is designed to hold 1500hp and not complain about it.

Block: LSX Short deck
CI: 416
CR: 9.0:1
Crankshaft: Callies
Rods: Callies I Beams, ARP hardware
Pistons: Wiseco units, were gas ported to keep rings gapped.
Rings: Wiseco Rings
Heads: LSX-LS3 6 bolt heads, fully ported
Valves/Springs: PRC Dual springs
Cam: Custom TSP Blower cam, I don't give the specs on it though.
Timing Chain: Cloyes Hex-a-just
Oil pump: Melling High volume
Aftermarket Dampner: ATI 10 Rib
Anything else: Lunati Valvetrain

Blower: Maggie now, F1X with spray or Twins next.
Maggie has 10 rib drive, OD cogs and a 2.95 pulley making 16psi.

Also to clarify, I meant to get across that this habit is expensive and shouldn't be taken lightly. That's my advice, make a budget and double it.

Its members with builds like yours I'm looking at, so I can build this winter.

Thanks for posting it up bud..
