Well, my beast is coming to life right now as I type. My engine and tranny were finally mated yesterday, boy they've missed each other...talk about "get a room!" So, my engine/tranny are going in as of this morning. SHOULD have her up and running by SATURDAY!!!
Pics to come shortly, break in period, then its dyno day! I am planning to video the last dyno run as the beast screams out at least 550+++rwhp. Actual rwhp, not corrected for this stratospheric place we call New Mexico.
Thanks a lot for this write up!!! I always try to talk myself into doing it the cheaper way and in the long run I would have probably busted my engine too. This form just help me realize that you can not cut coners if you want to DO THE TWINS RIGHT!!! Thanks a lot :clap: :clap: :clap: :cheers:
No doubt, an excellent post. But I gotta say it, why not put the $20k down on a C6? It seems very complicated and expensive to squeeze even 100 whp out of the Z, and I just saw a $3k SC bolted on to a Hemi add almost 300 whp. Am I the only one wondering why? Don't get me wrong, I love my Z, maybe even more than a new vette, I'm just a little disappointed by the reality of this email.
