Akina's build
« on: January 16, 2012, 12:07:19 AM »
Since my original build got lost in the transfer, I figured I would start another one with what I am currently doing. Nothing too exciting but I figured you guys would enjoy the pictures along the way.

Finally got around to getting my machine work done and got started on the new motor. Nothing amazing just a good rotating assembly and valve train. 
Stock crank, K1 rods and Wiseco pistons, GFX rings, ARP main and head studs, clevite bearings, melling 10296 pump, comp double roller adjustable timing set, comp pushrods and camshaft, CTSV-R lifters, LS2 dampner, Stock 317 heads ported and polished, manley valves, PRC 675 spring kit, 1.7 yella terra rockers.















This is where it sits as of tonight, I would have got the heads finished and on the short block but ran out of shims for the springs. I will get pic's of the heads before I bolt them on.
Checked for PR length and ordered those along with the extra shims tonight. Orderd my improved racing baffle tonight also. My Mcleod RXT twin disc and aluminum flywheel will be here this week as well. So far so good, hopefully I can keep at it and not be pulled away with other side jobs.

What PCM are you going to use for a 24x crank and a 4x cam?
FC/FD plug and play wiring harnesses, LSx swap AC systems, LSx swap power steering lines.

How much power you shooting for and what cam did you pick?  Did the super charger get too heat soaked on the road course or what?

They make those cam gears for both, I thought the same thing when i got. The cam has the tone ring on the rear of it.

The cam is  237/243  6xx /6xx  on 116. It should make some where between 800-1000 rwhp.
Nothing wrong with the blower, works well on the road course, just wanted more power. I have a V7 YSI for it now.

No, were going to put that motor in a 90 300ZX were converting. This ones a 04 LS6 block.
I have not decided yet if I'm doing a 8 rib serpentine or 10 rib, they make both styles in a single belt design. This one will be mounted on the passenger side head facing forward as I am going to put p/s back on it as well.

Thanks Track!

Thanks guys  :cheers: Got the long block finished for now, have to wait to put the rest of the tin on it when I pull the other motor out of the car and remove it from that engine. Still have to install breather fittings in the valve covers but I'm waiting to do that once its in the car and I have a better idea as to where all the new stuff is going in the engine bay. My flywheel showed up but the clutch kit won't arrive until this week, kinda bummed on that one. Time to order a bunch of other parts as well. Onto the pic's :chug:

Well the car has exploded and the real work has began. Got my clutch and some other various pieces which I forgot to take pictures of this time  :( So far so good though, nothing out of the ordinary, would have got a lot farther if i didn't have to be a plumber all day saturday. Re-doing the exhaust when I am all said and done as well as the rest of the long list, decided to do 3" duals and different mufflers, still can't make up my mind on what mufflers I'm going with this time around but I am definetly going v-bands all through out the car (exhaust and cold side piping for the blower). After you take something apart so many times you get tired of fighting with it  :D
