More torq!!

What can I do to gain more torq? I don't want to s/c or turbo yet. I don't care to much on hp just torq,like the bentley brooklands, it's only 505 hp but it has 700 of torq.and yes I know it's turbo charged.

4.10's. ... Although you will rip them out if you go FI. If you don't want to FI or turbo i doubt you want to stroke . Stoke adds insane amounts of torque down in 3k to 4k rpm range

Bigger crank shaft. Rebuilt short block with forged pistons ... About the same money as a supercharger .. Maybe a little more ... Adds mostly torque ... Adds a little a piece of mind about breaking things

Stroking means getting a crank with a longer stroke up to 4.0 (for a 416) or a 4.1 (for a 427) as opposed to a 3.62 that ALL LS engines share.
The stock length connecting rods are 6.098 and with a stroker crank they are Beam 6.125.
In essence your making that piston go down lower in the bore increasing the volume of air getting sucked in.

Hope that helps

Gears will feel like more torque and nitrous will actually make more torque!

How are you coming up with a 422? Lol

416 is gonna have a better life FI than a 427 in an Ls3 stroker app.

427 will be good NA but with a 4.1 in stroke the pistons rock at BDC. Even with the new style pistons for stroker apps.

LT headers and a tune will add more torque. Certain cams will add more torque from idle all the way through the rev range. Of course a stroker build or PD supercharger will add the most low end torque. Gears will make it feel like it has more low end torque.

OP list your current mods and budget so we can help you out better.

I would vote to do his LT header, CAI and tune combo then. If your budget allows do the gears as well but I would do the LT header, CAI and tune combo first.

A good round of mods for an LS3 is CAI, LT, gears and a good tune. I ran that way for 2 years. You can always add more later, or this may satisfy you. Its a good set up.

Gears wont add torque but it will make the car "feel" a lot better. It keeps the RPM's up in the go zone
