Stage II was injectors, built trans, converter and 12 psi. Resulted in close to 500 wheel and 12.8 at 104 with a 1.7 60 foot.
Stage III will be:
Billet pump and rotor for the 4L60e from Transbuilderguy.
JFR Triple 12 cam
PAC 1218 springs
Ls7 lifters with new trays
MLS head gaskets
Full valve, seals and resurface job on my 799s
Texas Speed DOD delete kit/Cam swap kit
China Head Studs
LS2 timing chain and tensioner
6.2 Valley cover
I have a lofty goal of 600 wheel. Math shows I’d have to get ~115 more hp with the cam, drive train and maybe 2-3 more psi. We’ll see what happens, but I am excited about the holy grail Triple 12 cam. Everyone loves this thing. My 60 foot shouldn’t improve ( All Terrains spin ) but I would think I’ll pick up some decent et and MPH. Trick Turbo is willing to send me his 76mm turbo to compare against the results of the 70mm I currently have. I wanna see if this little guy can make the power first, plus itll be a true apples to apples.
My LMG 5.3 with 105K miles had compression across all 8 of 142-145 psi. Seems a bit low and I was hoping for 170ish. I ended up pulling everything apart for a complete rebuild. All the bearings and hard parts looked great. The cyl all had decent cross hatching still.
I scrubbed the block down and ran a new ball hone through it quickly. Decked the block and filed the rings. All the pistons are cleaned and I am awaiting new bearings. Once they come in, I will start assembling the engine again. All the other parts are sitting here waiting. I am dropping my oil pan and manifold off to TurboCiv for a little touch up.
