    TalkingTime to get Strokin!!!

    It's time for me to get my ass in the garage and start building the 408!! : ). How many of you guys have a built motor? Im new to the forum I have been a member of LS1tech for a while but recently moved my focus over here. Im just putting my feelers out to see how many of you guys have gone a little further in than just heads and cam. Let me know what you've got.

    Probably a lot fewer guys here that've done that compared to LS1tech.

    I have a Darton sleeved 408 block. Lunati 408 rotating assembly 10.6:1, fresh back from balancing. Total engine airflow245 heads, I'm going to run with a custom grind comp cam that a good friend of mine is going to setup for me. Comp cams dual spring kit. COmp ultra gold rockers. Comp R lifters, and pushrods. FAST 102 manifold and NW 102 TB. Kooks 1.75" headers magnaflow cat back. I have not decided on oil pump, ppulley setup, or cooling so if you guys have any suggestions about those or mu current setup please let me knwo i am very excited about this and it has taken me a little over a year to get all of these parts purchased and ready to go now all i have to fo is build it and INSTALL. Nitrous setup is 150hp direct port through the beautiful, and overpriced FAST 102 manifold.

    Sorry about starting this post with no pictures. As soon as I get everything laid out in an orderly fashion I will get pic up. Along with pics of the short block - long block - install etc.
