@jrhagen - B-8 and B-15 are pre-built already assembled LSX engines. I am building this one from scratch.

@AG454 Pretty much. I kept on adding power then kept on breaking things, so I was like you know what. F*** it, lets go hard.

This is shaping up to be a fantastic build. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Right now the short block is custom built by Gilroy Automotive Machine and once completed will be sent to Starkweather Performance So that Josh and Nathan over there can work their tuning magic. Still on the LSA blower, at least until next year *wink* *wink*

Because of how long the thread became I deleted many of the pictures. I am going to find a better way to share them on this forum because there are so many changes in this build. I will also only update the original post.
