My New Build

By djjab57

Well after owning the car for 6 years, i said i wouldn't rebuild it until i blew up the LT1. Well i guess the LT1 is just to strong and im tired of waiting so I have started. Block is almost done, Its been boiled, Bored, Line bored and honed out. Im building a nice stout 355. I went with the 6 inch Scat I Beam rods the Mahl forged pistons. I kept the stock crank and had it turned and balanced so i believe the bottom end is set up pretty nicely. Also went went with the Clevite hardened bearings and all ARP hardware. The heads and intake have been sent off to Elliot Port Works for the LE2 package. The cam is also LE 226/232 .565/.565 112 LSA . Im going with 37# injectors and a PP 58mm Throttle Body and Comp Cams 1.6 RR's again using all ARP Hardware. I going with Strange 3:73's and a Yank ss3600 Stall, I already have all UMI suspension on the car and Hotchkis springs. Im sure ill be adding more later STAY TUNED !
