What is that oil filter you used and what is the micron rating?

This is a good thread.

The Oil Filter is made by Pure Power. Part number 8417 fits the V8 Camaro.

Filters 10 microns and smaller.

Things are about to get real here. Just got my heads back from WCCH! The workmanship is perfect and attention to detail is amazing! This is their stage 2 port design with BTR .660 springs and new stainless valves. Cam is a custom Pat G. design. More updates to follow.

Here is a conversion I pieced together for a few guys on here before that has some pretty good parts with BTR specing you a cam. I highly recommend you get a TQ converter matched to your cam bud. Oh and don't go with a baby cam, you'll end up wanting a bigger one later, ask me and many others here lol.


http://www.briantooleyracing.com/
739.00 ---cam package and it includes his platinum springs with titanium retainers and custom cam.
20.00 --- for the 4x cam sprocket
18.00 --- Ls2 timing chain dampner(it replaces out POS spring tensioner)
129.00 --- compcam rocker arm trunion upgrade kit
199.00 --- SLR lifters will maintain awesome valve control and avoid valve float.
32.00 --- you'll need 4 lifter trays they cost 7.99 a piece.
---------
1132.00 TOTAL

Then you'll go to TSP and get their gasket kit
http://www.texas-speed.com/p-173-bas...asket-kit.aspx
In the drop down option click
** GM mls 6.2 head gaskets
Then
** ARP hex head bolts
Then
** ARP crank bolt

Total should be 254.00


And finally LPE for their front timing cover and Valley cover that you'll need.
http://www.lingenfelter.com/mm5/merc...gory_Code=C469

http://www.lingenfelter.com/mm5/merc...gory_Code=C469

Total 130.00


Total for your L99 to Ls3 conversion kit is
$1516.00

A c5r timing chain is also a must at 149.00

So for a good build and conversion it's about 1660.00

Not including a good converter, tuning and labor.

Just my .2

Little 88 that is a good list of parts. The cost of a good converter and tuning can be as much as all the other parts. In my opinion spending the extra time and money on the heads is worth it.
One other part to consider is a new oil pump.

I agree with the heads, they have to come off anyway so this is a perfect time

Indexing the spark plugs should be worth at least 30 horsepower.

I did all four corners on my build, connected the two fronts with the two rears and then make to the radiator to eliminate any hot spots. Just a thought bud.
