I will have a lot more pictures to post soon when I get the cylinder heads back. I sent them out to WCCH for their stage 2 porting.
Good choice on heads.

Your project is starting to look like a motor that you would see on a SEMA engine stand. Its going to look too good to put in the car LOL.

I was kinda thinking the same thing! I think that LSX's motor and Nathens car should be put in the C5 Museum for Outstanding Craftsmanship! Lols!


No, Really...,Once LSX gets finished and gets behind the wheel, he is going to have a real big dose of the Permagrin!

I see a stock converter in that first pic. Are you going to upgrade that as well? Its highly recommended. It can make a world of difference.

Yes I am going with a 3000/3200 converter. The cam was spec'ed for this converter and the heads.

Today I received this new product from ARP. They now make Rocker Arm Studs for LS Engines. Much better than the stock bolts.
