    I read thru your thread & a couple of others & kinda got the same impression about some of the advise.Especially camshaft advise.The beak in the piston crown would match a Vortec chamber,but'IMO'I can't see where it would make much of an impact over a D cup.If availability & price are comparable,they may be worth a try.I just don't see any added value.I will probably use the KB-193's on mine.Thinkin seriously about tryin a flat top.It'll have me @ 9.8:1 SCR & 8.4:1 DCR.Still debating.LOL.

    I have found that the boating forums advice should be taken with caution. Most of the advice that I have gotten over there is very repetitive and seems most of them don't have "experience" they are just going from what they read, heard, or have been told.
    Here is the forum if you wanna read through it. vortec headed 383*/ 636408
    We seem to travel the same threads for the most part. The other day I said to myself "I feel like batman following Joker around". lol

    I'm thinking LCQ= Low Compression Quench, which would be a d shaped style piston. I am thinking what they are calling "D" shaped over at Iboats would be what we would call "dish with a trough". The "D" shaped pistons that I have installed in my 383 truck engine are the kb102 I would call this piston a d cup but I believe they would call it a LCQ piston. I think what they would call a d cup would be this virtually they are almost identical pistons besides the designs of the piston tops. They cc out to the same measurements just different design for different style combustion chamber.

    For my entire cleaning process I bought 6 cans of oven cleaner and still have a couple left, I actually just did the valve covers with it last night.

    Sealing it and giving it time to soak IS CRITICAL. It's not instantaneous and the colder it is the longer it will take. I was letting it soak for hours between scrubbings, letting it sit wasn't hurting anything so I saw no point it trying to shorten the time. You can just barely slip a large trash bag over a sbc block on a stand, as if they new the perfect size to make those trash bags...

    for the oven cleaner to work well soak the hell out of them engine, and cover it with a big trash bag, then return with another can, start soaking, work it in with a plastic scrub brush, then cover with the bag again. It DOES work better at warmer temps- like any chemical reaction. The trash bag prevents it from drying out before it can do the work. It will take a couple of soaking like I have prescribed, when it gets really messy I rinsed it off with a plastic scrub brush in Hot water with about 1/4 Purple Power. When I was done the block looked like new, it also works on aluminum but be careful it can oxidize aluminum.

    Hey Joker, sorry I just saw this question here now. Noone makes a pigtail or hookup directly for the Vortec spider, most just cut the stock injector harness and wire direct. Use the Crimp, Solder, Seal method as its the same method GM uses for its splices.
    The Vortec PCM has drivers that use high Impedance injectors, any high impedance injector will do. The ones that came with my marine intake are 25 lb/hr at 43.5 psi or around 29 lb/hr at 58 psi of fuel rail pressure. Once you know which injector you will use, you can buy an injector connector you can assemble, or buy the pigtails that you can crimp. The ones I have use an USACR connector and are EV6 type injectors.
