Wait... 7,500 for a BIW... I thought they were like 11,500...?

Woah... You're screwing with my plan, spike!

the turnkey crate motors I was meaning towards were like the fast burn 385 and the zz350 and whatnot that you can get for 5k. thats why I said to add in a little extra for an LS turnkey setup. but I dont want to get a "pretty powerful" motor, then break it trying to coax that extra little bit out. I'll build it right from the get-go

experience is a very useful thing. you can read about how to do a lot of things, but there are some things that you just have to go out and do. then there are other things you have to do too much and then have to do it all over again.

Sounds like a hell of a plan! I should have done this to begin with. I usually rebuild something 5 time before I get it where I want it.

THIS is how I'd do it. Just no time to learn but if everyone learned then it would put a lot of people out of work.
