I'm going to run my nozzle in the intake tube, single nozzle. You could run dual nozzle for better atomization, but I was told it wasn't necessary.

While I have heard a lot of people are having IAT issues an issue I don't have at all, but I have a plastic intake tube which help with this some. You going to use a plastic or metal intake tube?

Haven't decided yet, just found out that I need to go through and get a different game plan for the motor, but I was leaning towards metal, might need to go with plastic, thanks for the heads up. I'm hoping that this cold Colorado air will keep my blower cold.

Why? What happened? Shouldn't you get an HKE or RHS?

Just want to have the strongest motor I can get and you can't really beat cast iron. Not to mention the ability to keep my stock motor as a backup plan.

How much did that add cost wise?

Did you get the 376?

Not to bad really, it was less than building it from a hollow block. It's the new LSX376 from this year, 6 bolt heads, forged rotating assembly, the works.

I am keeping it a 376 for the stock cubes class.

Could you change the title to:

"45 years until completion!!"

Ah, 6 bolts heads. That's nice to have. So it comes complete minus the intake?

That was the original plan, GM hasn't made the crate motor yet So I am now building the motor from scratch. It will still be the LSX motor, but will have entirely forged rotating assembly, CR around 9.3:1. Heads are backordered, but will be here in about a month, unless I go with PRC or Mast. Motor should take 18psi and at least a 300 shot. Dedicated fuel system for the Nitrous is next.

What's the deal with the stock engine you were building?

Keeping it around for now, I am reassembling it back to a drop in replacement. I might just forge it with what I have left over and have a spare. Who knows, maybe I'll sell it, I dunno.

In post 55 it looked like it was being rebuilt but it could very well be getting torn apart.

Yep, that was the initial tear down. As it sits now it is an empty block, sitting at a machine shop. It needs bearings to go back together, which I didn't expect with 1800 miles. Looked like there was some metal debris that came loose from the casting and put some grooves in em.

That makes sense. Thus the prowl for an LSX. Very nice. I'm interested to see how you fuel the nitrous with the dedicated system. Are you gonna go tank in the trunk like Ray?

Yeah I think so, Nitrous Outlet has a nice one designed for our cars. It'll at least ease the load on the LPE unit, which sounds like it'll be a good thing. If I can get 780 wheel with blower only I'd be good with that, then a 100 shot should take care of the rest. 780 is about all my injectors will support at 85% duty cycle too.

You won't see 780 wheel with an auto on the Maggie. Stick you will. That's where Jim topped out at.

Ooh I forgot about that, well my initial readings will be on a stick. The 4 speed should come into the picture sometime before CF4, but I want to give the shifting thing a whirl.

Farks is selling their T400 cross member. May want to look into that.

Check out "gotthato2fire's" build on here. He had a Maggie maxed 416 with the 10 rib through a built 6l. I think he could only make 14-15 psi on the 416 and I think barley cleared 700 wheel.

Did he do the spacer? RMCR seems to think that I direct spray of meth in the rotors will give me more boost because of the cooler air temp inside of the housing, but meth is corrosive too.

Thanks for the info, I'll call ATI when I get the chance, trying to sell the Subaru right now too.
