It will probably be a day or two before they can start the diagnostics on the old motor. Should be ordering a new long block tomorrow. Definitely going to go with forged rods, but need to see what else failed to see where we go from there.

Is there any why you can see if there's a way to find a stronger chain also? Are you getting new or used block?

Don't think it is the strength of the chain that is the issue. Remember, this is just driving the valve train so adding HP doen't really add more pressure for that particular aspect of the motor. Instead, my thinking is the greater acceleration is leading to not enough oil where the system picks it up and supplies it to the hydralic tensioners. Aaron isn't convinced, but we haven't torn it down yet, so who knows.

Getting a used block to build. Looks like the LFXs are just as cheap as the LLTs, so that's good.

New motor is on its way. Rods will be going out for spec Monday. They'll start the tear down next week (couple of things came up and they couldn't start this week).

Horrible 60'. Still need to figure that out. According to the log it took a full sec for the throttle to open all the way up.

Just curious, how cheap is cheap? (For the LLT at least).

Complete engines (good low mileage) are around $3500 or less.

I paid ~$1,600 for the LLT I swapped into Gretchen before trading. It had 8K miles on it. This LFX has 4K miles and is a little over $1,800. Heck, one turbo is almost as much as the engine.

That's a great price on the engine. Now just to reinforce everything to go with it. I am interested to see if the original block shows any signs of the main caps shifting.
