Question: do you think that the SwainTech coating on the underside of the piston heads will interfere with the cooling capability of oil squirters? Also, did you get the Gold coating on top, or is that TBC?

PISNUOFF
06-23-13, 11:34 AM
Gold coat on top, PC-9 on the skirts, nothing on the underside of the pistons and PPM on the cam and main bearings. The cam bearings come with the LSX block because they are a different size than standard LS ones and don't come coated. The mains that I wanted (King with 2/3 groove) aren't available coated. I already had a set of coated Clevite rod bearings. I talked with my engine machinist and decided against piston squirters. I hope I don't end up regretting that decision as it's basically the only overkill option I haven't gone with.

I seriously doubt an aluminum block would hold up. And an extra $800 for the LSX vs LS3 isn't really that much when compared to the total cost for this thing.

It's more than $800, once you factor in the premium on the rotating assembly. That Dragonslayer probably wasn't cheap. ;)

I've been very much against the LSx because the short block weighs double that of the LS3, but I found a list of fully-assembled crate motor weights that changed my mind. The 427 CID LSx comes in at 520 lbs, versus 415 lbs for the LS3. That's not bad. As far as heads go, I still think the best bang for the buck for forced induction are unported LSA heads, which I have sitting here. They cost me $625 with sodium valves. The alternative would be something crazy like the Mast large bore heads, but at $2800 bare ($4000 assembled), you'd get much more bang for the buck if you put that money into your blower, fueling system, and insulation.

And as far as a blower goes, I think a 3.3L or 4.0L Whipple with a thick phenolic spacer might be in my future, versus a TVS2300 (too small for a 416-427 CID motor). Most of the 2010-2012 Mustang builds that I've read about are making 850-1000 RWHP on 16-22 PSI with the 4.0L. It's hard to see the need for a turbo when you can do this with a supercharger:


http://youtu.be/9xIKmYGJiw8

That guy drives the way I imagine PISNUOFF drives.

PISNUOFF
07-05-13, 08:26 PM
The total weight difference is only about 85-95 pounds when all said and done. Plus we were only comparing an LS3/LSA vs the LSX. The difference is only $800 for the LS3, we weren't talking anything about the rest of the motor components. I suppose I could have easily saved a bunch of money by purchasing a Chinese K1 crank and rods and I didn't really have to coat the pistons or bearings either.

I'd much rather have turbos than a supercharger. I really dislike the fact that they run off belts that slip and/or break. Also, I wouldn't think to limit myself to 850-1000 rwHp.

FuzzyLogic
07-05-13, 09:52 PM
Also, I wouldn't think to limit myself to 850-1000 rwHp.

We're obviously both in the "more is always better camp," but I feel that 850-1000 RWHP represents the upper-end of the horsepower sweet spot. Once you go further than that, you fall off the "law of diminishing returns" cliff.

Endlessly chasing the power monster is fun, but your time and money is probably better spent on removing weight from the car, improving its handling, improving aerodynamics, and doing the other stuff that make the car a pleasure to drive.

You cannot see the bottom timing mark, but there is a groove milled in the 'inner' cover that you line up the cam sprocket timing mark with when you remove it and line back up to install it.

I have had an oil cooler on for years. That's a sandwich adapter that opens at 160 degrees. It's been fine with -8AN lines. The cooler has an integral fan that I put on a switch, it can also be setup to turn on and off with a thermostat.

The pulley that replaces the tensioner pulley is for my GZ Motorsports vacuum pump. The pulley that is on the driver side is simply an idler pulley that attaches to the alternator bracket.

The initial startup shouldn't be that bad on this motor since I'm going from a 417 to a 427. The cam is a little different and the intake is different. It should start up just fine and idle ok by itself. I'll tune in the MAF and drive it easy until I can get to a dyno. I have an appointment for August 13 on a dyno.

PISNUOFF

Stock PVC system isn't sufficient to create a vacuum inside the crankcase with the stroker motor. The 418 LS3 was creating positive pressure and blowing oil back through the intake tube and filling my catch can every 2-3 days.

The second part makes the vacuum pump sound like some kind of free energy/perpetual motion machine. What are the downsides or limitations? There must be a reason why we don't see this as a commonplace bolt-on.

Nice! I did mine with the same thing a while back, but instead of the iron LSX block I used a RHS aluminum LSX block to cut some of the weight, also 11:1 compression. Pondering converting to some sort of FI or Nitrous. Keep the pics coming! One of these days I'll get around to putting mine up.
Good stuff :)

CONGRATS DUDE! THAT SOUNDS NASTY! Now just to get it tuned and running! Then to see some numbers! Is that out of the tips or is that via some cut outs?

That's out of the cutouts just before the mufflers. It's tuned good enough to drive. I'll tune in the MAF and it'll be nearly complete. I have an appointment with a dyno on the 13th for the finishing touches.

Beat downs straight out of the box.

Just kidding. Run dinosaur oil for the first 1500-2500 miles, change it at 100, 500 and 1500 at least.

1. Start and let it idle until oil is up to running temp.
2. Let cool until oil temp is 100 deg.
3. Start and repeatedly rev to 2000-2500 rpms until the oil is back to running temp.
4. Let cool completely.
5. Drive it normally with getting on it some but not really revving over 5000 rpms.

I am breaking in another new clutch so #5 won't have many beatings for the first 500 or so miles. Also, #'s 2 & 4 are the most agonizing hours of your life. Haha

What kind did you pick? Did you choose the venerable T-Rex oil, or did the shop convince you to spring for the new and improved Megasoreass?

I would have to break it in as well.

A lot of guys says hey beat it's ass straight away. If it's gonna break now, it would've broke later.

^I say F that^ - you are doing it the right way.

I got on it a little last night. I've put 70 miles on it and ran out 2nd gear to 6000 rpm and ran 1/2 of third. She's every bit as fast as the 418 was.....and it's still not tuned properly.

I really laid into her last night after 300 miles. WOW! Even with four people in the car it felt faster than the 418.

I figure I'd update this thread.

1. Got screwed by my dyno tuner and he only corrected the AFR at wot and left the timing the same as my 418 with higher compression and different camshaft. He took my money and left me with 478 rwHp. I realize that I should lose Hp because the donkey dick camshaft I bought as a temporary one for one summer is totally wrong for my setup.

2. Went to Woodward with the crap tune and had a blast. Even with my ridiculously expensive slower motor. Plus, it runs like shit below 3000 rpm with any more than 1/2 throttle.

3. I installed a new wideband and decide to tune the darn thing myself. I spent many, many, many hours tuning below 3000 rpms to no avail. I did however have plenty of success tuning wot. I ended up with an average of 9 degrees of additional timing and it completely HAULS ASS now. We took a trip to Mexico and she completely annihilated a stock C6 by multiple bus lengths. PM me if you want to see that vid. I'm not posting it on this forum.

4. After 5000 flawless miles, I hit a deer and only had cosmetic damage. It should be back from the body shop soon.

5. Twin turbos are on the back burner because until later in 2014 because we bought a house with only a single car garage. I must build a garage before I build a turbo setup. Soooooo, I bought this to hopefully gain about 40-60 additional rwHp. 240/248 .629/.629 111 LSA ground at +4 degrees.

6. I sent off a couple wheels to get widened to 10" and my Creative Steel offset trailing arms should arrive at about the same time as my wider wheels.

7. Debating which to get first, an 8.8 setup or a wet kit to slap a 250 shot on until I get the twins. I'm also debating whether to go with PT6266's or PT6766's. My decision maker would be at what rpm they will be at full spool.

I vote 8.8". Although you'll probably break those axles. I can't believe your Getrag has lived as long as it has.

Also, holy f**k your car is loud. :thumbsup:

So did you get the tune fixed? Let me know if you want/need a reference for an excellent tuner - pm or fb. If you do the 8.8, you get more than just a robust differential - it's a whole new car with a much better feel so there's my vote.

Which wideband did you go with and are you tuning with HPTuners Pro?

Philistine - I know of several reputable ones also. I've been tuning for 6 years and can actually do it pretty well. I'll get it close myself and if I don't like my number I'll let someone else take a look at it. I have access to a dyno that I use for the wot stuff. I switched from my LM1 to an AEM.

LOL I have pretty much the same setup in my car, but full exhaust/corsa and I thought mine was loud haha.. Yours is a bit louder. Mine's set up for nitrous instead of FI, almost 600WHP N/A should be around 800 or so with the no2 running but I haven't installed it yet, been chasing down other issues.
I'll take a video one of these days haha.
What exhaust do you have on there? That almost sounded like open headers

my wife still talks about your car, tells me to add more engine to mine lol. I wished i still lived closer, my gm tuning is coming along but an extra set of eyes on the tune wouldnt hurt.

congrats on the house, i must have missed that.

what setup do you have ctsvlsx? also a lsx block i assume.
