This I 100% agree with! It's for this reason I conjure up images of building up an LLT to rev to 10k much like a Honda S2000

The main problem though, is that I don't think that these gear boxes will like 10-11k gear changes :(

I'm thinking is tranny swap to a different unit eniirely will be needed. There are plenty of high output rated units out there the trick will be the input shaft and the overall length and shifter location. Comes down to fabrication and how you are at problem solving.

Back to the 'super v6", plenty of Buick Grand Nationals made 1000+ rwhp with a single turbo and 231 cubic inches. The LLT has the potential - we just need a few stronger parts.

Hey Yellow, when do you anticipate a. Receiving the cams and b. getting them installed?

Six, Talked to Steve last night and they should be "in the mail" this week. Think I surprised him she said for sale and I said ship them. Lol.

Still working on the install timing - all the local names within 300 miles have declined to do it. Install looks straightforward enough but dexterity in the hands isnt what it used to be so I won't be able to do it.

Timing will depend on when / where I secure an installer.

Ok Yellow, it looks like you're down right by Austin. I don't know how far away DFW and Houston are (4-5 hrs?) but I bet they have shops that will do it. Are you going to stay 100% all motor?

I'm thinking this is my next big mod. I'm off through mid Dec until Feb so prolly get it done then. I'm thinking these cams and ported heads along with your ARK N2 is going to sound like an exotic beast.

The thing is, I really want to do hi-po NA build and replace displacement with lots of revs

I'm in for a 600 rwhp NA!!!!

Agree the hp will have to come elsewhere than cubic inches. You might pick up a little cubic inch with a stroker setup, but the real hp will be 10 k plus rpm while keeping the velocity flowing.

Talked to a couple of shops in Dallas - they declined. Still checking though, looking for the right place which is willing to do this the right way from start to finish. I've been in and out of shops for decades - I like to have input on what the end result is so I'm a little picky.

Six, not sure at this point if I'll stay NA. I definitely like the idea of a max effort NA build. This could be on ongoing effort for a few years - as I've said before - its only money. LOL.

Too late for me to stay all NA. Lol. Just finishing up the SC install. I want a solid 400-450rwhp V6 and it's not looking like the SC alone is going to get it done whether you go IPF or RX with the current fueling limitations. I'm sure we'll get there somehow someday but in the meantime I think this mod just might give it the swift kick in the pants it needs unless I'm using ricer math.
