had to save a lil money were i could, am going with the larger lifters still trying to decide between hyd roller or solid roller, my friend is running the hyd roller and i think i may go that way to make it a lil more street friendly

as much as i hate to im going to go low on the compression at around 8.2-8.5-1 since this engine will see alot more boost then i would normally run i.e around 30 psi . if e85 was more redilly available in my area i would deff go for 9.5-1 cr

typically on my street strip suff i built before i set up the engines with a min of 9.0-1 cr and a max of around 9.7-1

the ls stuff is still pretty expsensive more so then the gen 1 stuff when u start getting into hardcore racing parts , im going to make my venture into the lsx series of engines soon though im thinkng about buying a 4.8 or 5.3 and slapping a 76 or 88 mm turbo on it in an s10 pickup
