Ok, I stopped by the shop today and spoke with my builder. He said thee engine builders have started on my LS-3 block that will be sleeved, and have all the good forged rotating internals. He told me the heads will be going to the machine shop on Monday, and to go ahead and keep my car until Thursday or Friday since we dont need to tear it apart to get started. He knows I'm headed for Brazil, and told me to drive it while I'm here... Way cool since the work has already started...

I went to TGIFridays in San Antonio for our regular Friday night hang, and had a blast, at least until the cedar pollen blew in... peeps were sneezing, loosing their voices and coughing to beat the band... Fortunately it didn't bother me until I was leaving and closed my hood and the layer of pollen looked like the car had been in a dust storm... WOW...

I'll drop Brandi off Thursday, and leave for Brazil Saturday, so it shouldn't hurt too much...

My builder will be adding my car to the customers build page as well as seending me some pics so I'll be able to keep up with whats going on.... He will also be sending me e-mail updates so that will help also...

More soon...

Nah, I doubt it but thats ok. I figure by the time they get it built, and shipped and what not, I'll be in Brazil for a couple of days or so, but maybe not, I may get to see it before I leave...

It'll still be a 427, I believe, just with an LS-3 block rather than an LS-2. I'll post that up when I know absolutely for certain... as well as a few of the other things still a little in the air....

visited my builder today, he confirmed that my motor is being built and it is going to come from the builder with 9.0-1 compression ratio...

he also sent the heads off to start the work on them. I'm still driving my car...he had a set of heads, same casting as mine, in the shop, said he would use those and for me to keep driving Brandi... weather permitting, there will be a gang of us headed to the test and tune Wednesday....my last night to drive a sane car...

Like me, he was blown away by the TTI/Granatelli Twins kit. He looked at the other kit as well, but kept going back to TTI/G.

I am ordering the axles and he will order the clutch... All of this is in preparation for the install and boost cranking of the TTI/Granatelli Twin Turbo Kit.

We are going to order the kit with 10 lb waste gate springs, since we can as much as double the boost with an e-controller. Rather than limiting ourselves with a 7 lb spring set up to 14 lbs max boost, we will start with 10 lb springs and be able to double it to 20 if things ever progress to that point...

Corey is figuring we can go to around 13 or 14 lbs of boost before we start running out of fuel.... Time will tell...

Out initial goal is for about 750 to 800 at the wheels, but those are just numbers,,, the proof is in the pudding and in the trap times and speeds...


The Shop, is Henderson Performance in New Braunfels Texas.
The block is being prepped and built by ERL,
The Twins are from TTI Granatelli
Exhaust from Magna Flow,
Axles still up in the air...
Clutch, up in the air...

More to follow...

Thanks Again to all who have stopped in....
10lbs of boost should get you 765 rwhp - lets see how close I get

I'll be sure to let you know, but thats the intended starting point... If I understand correctly, we will adjust the springs and boost until we run out of fuel. We are using the CTS-V Dual pump system with a BAP. Corey is getting either 80, or 82 lb/hr injectors.

Thank You For stopping by... It's going to be fun, and there are a hosts of folks waiting for this one here in Central South Texas... Since I work in Brazil, and will be gone for a substantial period of the build, I've had a host of them offer to video any Dyno runs, and to take pictures as it progresses. I talked to Corey the other day and since this is his first 2010 Camaro "big build" he has mentioned he will feature this car on his customers build page. We are going to do a base linee dyno run, hopefully when I take it to the shop on Thursday... I'll let you know...

I mentioned in a previous thread that the axles were up in the air, but no more.... After lots of discussion and research. I opted for Driveshaft Shop Level 5 Axles. I orderd them today, though shipping may be delayed a day or two due to the snow and ice storm they are experiencing in NC.

Thanks Frank for helping me and the suggestions... Looking forward to seeing those pieces...
