Talking Finally, Some progress on my LS1 build

I've been researching this for a couple of years and set aside some cash. Now it's go time!!








Now it may take a year to decide on what heads to get.

LS3 heads would be nice, but the bore diameter on an LS1 is a bit to small. I can get LS3 power out of it still. The other engine is also an LS1, it seems that plans have been changed. Just finished up buttoning the pan and covers.




More to come.

Thinking about selling them and getting TSP heads. The amount I'll have wrapped up in the initial price plus porting will equal TSP's. I need to pull the trigger.
