Drivetrain / Re: 450 whp NA in an iron 5.3?
« on: Today at 02:14:56 AM »
After you factor in machine work, parts, etc you should just get a 6.0 block for the extra cubes and namely torque.

I had an LS1 with AFR 205 heads/LS6 intake/233/239 cam/headers/T56 Magnum in 2005 and it made 440rwhp on 91 octane... I doubt you will do that with your combo on a 5.3.  Cubic inches n/a are your friend.  With boost.... just have an efficient turbo based upon your engine size/needs.

If you want it as a drag car the iron block is fine.... if you want it to handle the best possible you need an aluminum block to shave off the extra 80lbs.  Having a 10 second car that handles is not an issue with a V8 RX-7 swap. 

I have had both (turbo LS FD drag style car/big cubic inch N/A FD road race setup) and I'll be honest with you.... the road race car is a lot more fun.  Drag racing is 8-10 seconds of adrenaline rush.... road racing is 20-30 minutes chasing/passing other cars......

What is your location?  If you need any BTR parts I'm a dealer.. plus clutches etc.

$60K for a non stroker swapped car and mismatched paint LOL.   Never going to happen

I've got a crazy 441ci setup for sale with Dailey billet oiling system if you want to make 800hp flywheel :)

Parts for Sale / Summit Racing has brand new LS9 blocks for $1900 shipped

For those of you contemplating building a boosted motor these blocks are bad ass and this price is nuts.  I paid more for mine used than this price shipped!

I ordered one today for a customer 376ci build I'm putting together with a big turbo (Fbody application)... arrives March 4th or so.
I get good pricing on Molnar/K1 crank/rods and other brands, gaskets, anything on the BTR website, ARP fasteners pretty much anything for an LS build if you need help

Attributes only the LSA and LS9 block have: cast from a better grade aluminum and rotocast (gets bubbles out and denser material as a result), piston squirters
The LS9 block has billet main caps and the LSA has nodular iron caps (other production blocks are cast iron caps.... LS7 is also billet). 
LS9 block has larger 13mm head bolt/stud holes vs. 12mm for LSA and other production blocks.

The Touareg sounds like every one I've heard of once they get to about 80K miles :)  Great in concept but typical Audi/VW issues.

E46 BMW's are stupid cheap....

Lexus IS350, GS300, LS430 are all under $10K .... but not a stickshift.  Can't have it all with total reliability :)

This isn't mine.... DO NOT CONTACT me about it.


That being said... don't make me buy it.  Anybody want to make 750rwhp+ with headers, pulley, cam?  Did I mention it is factory dry sump as well....  This would be one bad b*tch in an RX-7 swap....

Of note... if you do buy this I have a 2016 C7 Z06 torque tube/dshaft, TR6070 M7 trans,/diff/axles/rear cradle/suspension/coolers if you want to simply swap all that in as well!  Would be one hell of a combo...... move weight out back... and near bulletproof rear/diff/trans setup for about the same parts cost as a T56 Magnum/8.8" setup.

There are a couple guys that removed the supercharger... added a big turbo and are running mid 8's on stock longblocks with different intake in 3500lbs Z06's.  Even running the stock trans/diff!

What a fun project!  It is insane how cheap e46's can be purchased for these days....  I love that the interior also looks pretty stock!  Sleeeeeeeeper.........

I ended up buying a complete Z7 Z06 front subframe/suspension/14.5" brakes/steering rack for a smoking price.  I was going to run stock FD front suspension on another project (non RX-7); however this Z06 stuff is just soo much beefier/better.

V8 swapped RX-7's never break down so there is no reason to tow one  :grin:

I have towed with a 2002 Dodge 2500 Ram Cummins a 28ft enclosed trailer effortlessly aside from it's overall length....  Then a 4.0 liter V6 2006 4Runner (18 ft alum trailer) without issues and a 5.3 2003 Tahoe Z71. 

Sold those.... current truck is a 2017 Ram 1500 Ecodiesel 3.0 liter V6 4WD that averages 23mpg with a rooftop tent above the cab big time on a rack.  It is rated at 9000lbs towing.  Has plenty of power.... Got the last years model for $22K off MSRP.... paid $29,999 plus tax/lic/reg.  It is a work writeoff.

I don't think there is such a thing as a smog legal CA 1Jz/2jz.  You should also list your budget.....

I'm looking for a pair of front FD spindles.  I don't need the dust shields.... I'm going to cut them off anyway.

You want to close up all unnecessary front openings.... Probably don't even need air to an oil cooler for only a mile racing.  Looking forward to more updates.

That is a great price for all the work done to it.  I sold him the powerglide and can vouch for it being built stout and complete.  Plop in a forged motor and go run some 8's.
