So the LSX goes with your Forgestars for the track and the LS99 goes with your Savanis for the street? Don't you think that's going to be too much work, having to switch engines back and forth? That's like a 2-3 hour job!!!


















































Kidding!!!

Just buy a whole front subframe clip... take off the front facia, and then it's about six bolts, and the drive shaft... then you could even have the racing transmixer... drop that one and put in the race model...

I was pretty amazed how easy it is to remove the front sub-clip, motor tranny and all... They had mine out in less than an hour after the front fascia was off...

As this build has gotten bigger and bigger I've known that at some point I'd need to do something with the engine. I'm now pushing what we think is a little over 700 RWHP (dyno pull this Tuesday night). The stock motor has held up fine so far, but I drive this car every day so it's really just a matter of time.

I wasn't out there looking to buy an LSX immediately, but when my friend PoleCat posted up I decided to send her a PM. She'd bought the LSX, and then before installing it decided to go with some crazy alcohol dragster build.

She made me a great deal on the block so I jumped on it. Thanks PoleCat!

Obviously this is just the first part of the puzzle, but eventually the LSX is going in. Not sure on the time frame but I'll keep you posted.

Hawk ceramic brake pads
ARP wheel studs
Powdercoated exhaust tips

Almost ready to go!

Russ your car is Super Bad Assed.

What will the LSX block give you over what you currently have? Are you going for more cubic inches or just built bottom end?

Right now the plan is to go LSX 427, lots of boost and a shot of dope at the track.

The tough part is resisting the urge to do everything now!

Do you have line locks on your car? With the power you have, you probably don't need them... just curious...

It must be intense to sit in the driver's seat watching the tree and seeing that 1/4 mile in front of you. Adrenalin rush!
