Just got off the phone with the guys at ECS and I report that there is a SNAFU. Turns out that the heads I bought cause a piston-to-valve clearance issue. To fix that problem the pistons are going to be cut to make everything work. The problem came about because the came has a larger lift then the stock, and when I purchased these heads, the cam wasn't accounted for. So, the cutter has been order and is on back order until the 10th. Just a waiting game now.

Boo is not the quoted I was looking for, but here's an interesting update. Doing a head swap was a big failure. Because of the larger cam I have, there's not enough P/V clearance. EDS has offered the services of fly cutting the piston to make the clearance, however my belief is that if you do something like that you're compromising the piston. My back is against the wall because I already sold the old heads and they were shipped. So the only other option is to upgrade. It is time for a New bottom end and I will be selling my old one which is in perfect condition.

Why not just swap a cam that would work?

Unfortunately there's not much else I can say, I wish there was. Yes we can change cam, but the heads were going on to raise power so going to a smaller cam seemed counter productive.

We are speaking with PRC today since we did not spec or purchase these heads, we can only say what the PTV is once they were installed, and it's not enough unfortunately.

We will have this squared away one way or the other.

Be glad you took it to a place like ECS that actually checked. Many shops would just bolted them on and assumed everything was fine.

No doubt. I don't look at this as a bad thing, I think of this as a way to justify a new purchase, plus we can use the YSi to it's full potential.

That's the good thing. I found ECS originally on here 2 years ago so I've been taking my car there since I bought it. So I know I can trust the work that they've done. 800+ wrhp and never a problem.

Yea, funny about that Jamie and I were talking about shops that would've just slapped them on. I'm blown away that an issue like this was found. The quick fix would've been .025" cut and they would've had to take the new heads apart to match it up for the valve relief since the valves on the new heads are at a different angle. As far as I'm concerned it's a blessing in disguise. I'll have a completely new long block, and new blower. After this, I have nothing else to do to the car. That sucks.

So here's what we have come up with so far. Because the heads I bought are 6-bolt, we decided that it only seems fitting to run a 6-bolt block. Because there's only so many options for 6-bolt blocks, we decided to use a LSX 427. The components that will used are Wiseco pistons, Callies rods, and a Compstar crank. TSP says it will take 2-3 weeks to build, so in the real world, that means 2- 3 months.

I'm sure it won't be, but at the same time, during the winter, the car would be in the garage anyway, so it's not like I'm in a rush to get it back.

Since, I'm going to be running a YSi, using that small of a bore, I won't get the full potential of the blower, I also run the risk of blowing the motor if I use too much boost. I could have the LSX bored to that size, but I'm also shooting for that 1K at the wheels. Everyone that's on board and all the research I've done is pointing to do at least a 408, but there's no fun in that. All the components are going to be used to there full potential, and we're not using anything but what's recommended. Therefore, we're not going with a Compstar crank. We're going to be using the Callies Dragon Slayer wet sump crank. All ARP bolts or the mains and the heads.

I sorta look at it, the more time that is taken on it, the more precise it'll be. I talked to TSP a few days ago, and they're the ones who told me 2-3 weeks, but we'll see. Did you order your motor yourself, or through a shop. Someone mentioned to me that when a shop orders it, they may tend to have a little more pull. We finalized the build today and ECS is going to put the order in on Monday.

This is going to be the convertible from hell

Done!! Nitto Invo up front and M/T in the rear. Put those on last year. This will still be my DD. The 1K hp is bragging rights.
