    Almost 14 months since contact with the OP.... :(

    I fear the project has hit a snag or gotten "back-burnered."

    No, I hear you, but guys are putting those motors into everything including bimmers (several nice e39s running around with various iterations of the Chevy LS motors in them), and the results are...

    Not poking fun here, but it's interesting how things change fast. I bet 650 RWHP seemed a lot more significant when you started this project than it does now... Now guys with 150,000 mile 5.3L...

    As long as St. James is satisfied that something has been done, for HE is the customer! :)

    I guess I just meant in terms of how long it has taken it seems about like nothing has been done. ...

    Good lord....... This sounds like effectively ZERO progress.

    I wouldn't think so on the quarter miles -- it seems that he hasn't even really done any WOT tuning with it yet... I'm guessing that means that he hasn't done any real power tuning and that he just...

    When was he saying he was actually going to push this thing a little bit? Seems crazy to build something like this and then wait years to see if it's going to run well or blow up....

    Agreed. Cool looking parts, but how is the car running? Seems a shame to put together all of these awesome performance parts (internals) and then shift the focus to cool cosmetic stuff without ever...

    SWEET looking parts man!

    How much would you want for one of those blower brackets?

    Of course, tuning is always critical, especially when doing forced induction with a compression ratio this high. But since you're interested in a turbo application, it's important to recognize that...

    Either he's tired of waiting for parts and work, or he's tired of being asked about the status of the project! Lol....

    In either event I empathize. I guess if you're going to post about your...

    Oh, sorry, I forgot to ask -- regarding the FEAD, did you confirm that the truck one won't work? Assuming that is the case, with getting your parts from GM are you finding that you can assemble the...

    I didn't have a chance to take pics yet, but I located a piston and rod for a quick inspection just now. I really think the piston is cast and the rod is a cracked cap, powder metal rod. Powder...

    If I get a chance this weekend (50/50 chance of that), I will take some pics of the crank, a rod, and a piston. To be honest I can't remember if it was the rod journals or the main journals of the...

    The rods appear for all the world to be powder metal, but I guess I need to take another look at a piston to see if there's any chance they may actually be forged. I don't remember looking at them...

    It's a real bonus to the community that you are willing to do this with a stock motor and see what it can take!

    Are you sure the V8 cars have more room due to the steering setup? I was guessing so, but of someone is really SURE, that would be good to know.
