    900 is an optimistic number,

    I would say na around 575-650hp and 500-550lbft of torque

    I went drysump for more power and lightened the crank for more torque and only got 625hp and 555lbft at the flywheel

    Re: new engine

    Sounds sick that's my plan in the future is building a fresh block then dropping it in. May I get an approximate $$ and are you building it or having it built, if so by whom?

    Re: new engine

    i dropped 20,000 for my engine,

    i also had everything coated for extra heat protection

    Ported Ls9 heads
    Ls3 Block
    Ultra light crank
    Pistions
    Ultra light connecting rods, weigh only 5gm more then gm Ti rods
    ARP bolts
    Ported Fast 102 with TB
    Ti bolts for all the covers
    GMPP lifters
    Yella Terra 1.7 rockers
    and LSA clutch with alu flywheel

    A massive amount of money but worth it when i can burn the tires in 4 and 5 at 3500rpm

    Had the tranny and diff rebuilt by RPM transmissions,

    He is buying my LS3 stroker. It will be machined and assembled properly this time. Not like the junk it came like from Texas Speed the first time.

    naf - He mentioned 900 Hp as the rating of the Compstar rods, this motor made 640/585 at the crank with a set of PRC LS3 heads and self ported LS3 intake manifold. It really is too bad that you spent that much on a motor that can't handle very much power. My 427 LSX didn't even cost that much, it will be at 1500 at the crank and take it all day long.
