So can't just bore out the block a bit and run a set of pistons?

I don't like the dual adder stuff, why not go to a YSI or Novi 1500.

Hey, stop spending my money John!!!

Yeah, the block is fine. Could be sleeved or bored a tick. I don't want any more cubes. I don't want a different blower. If I did I would have teds built 416 in the car and I would be on the track tomorrow with the GN. Without sounding arrogant, my combination is gold. It's produced results. When its together it will really lay down some times. I know what works with my car. I'd rather not start over.

Everything but 2 pistons are fine. The rods are perfect and so is the crank. Just that one sleeve has a little mark. But we might as well put some even better parts in it while its apart.

Nitrous is set up fine. Accidents can and will happen. That's part of going fast. Fix it and move on. That's all that needs to be done.

Then he would be incorrect.

Nah. Gotta get back on that horse. Minor setback. Few weeks and it'll be back on the road/track.

The only thing I see wrong here is you didn't stagger the ring gaps

u running the msd digital window or msd pill style window switch? i tried both and the pill style seems to be more accurate then the digital. but i ended up just going with a nos launcher. its fairly nice setup. but if i had it to do over the lnc progressive controller is where its at i think. but ya window switches dont always catch stuff like that. but at least u know what can happen in a blink of a eye. if u got the extra cash try the lnc its about 600 bucks but well worth it. great controller. if u dont want to spend that spend 400 on the nos launcher. its got tons of safety features. like manifold pressure , a/f low and high. rpm, and a few other lil things. that would be ideal for a car like urs.

Yeah cool, If it was me I'd just go a little over and reuse the block or just another stock bare block if it's important to stay stock cubes.

What plugs do you run, what heat range?

I think he said earlier he's getting a new stock cubes GM LS3 block. If Ted made the decision, then he's likely running the LS9 AC Delco plugs.
