    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum but love working on cars, especially mine. So far money is getting better for me allowing me to buy more stuff so I figured I might as well get a custom engine built for me for starters. Heres the stats on that build. Let me know what ya'll think.

    Not sure if I'm going to replace the transmission yet or just rebuild it but I am considering redoing the rear end and throwing in some new suspension and sway bars that complement the engine. Any recommendations on what I should look into?

    I have a performabuilt stage 2 transmission in mine with a 3000 stall. I am very happy with it. its rated for 700 hp and came with a 1 year warranty.
    they are a sponsor on ls1tech.com and usually have some good deals going on

    14k?!?!?!?!

    fuuuuuuuuuuuuck that

    its an iron block 6.0 with some l92 heads and an ls6 intake

    you can go get a brand new short block or long block, have some work done on it put damn near the same amount of power and come out many MANY thousands less

    See I'm kinda new in the whole engine buying and building up business. I mean I know my way around an engine pretty well but when it comes to matching price with performance I suck. Which is why I'm very willing for any opinions and tips

    there are much cheaper ways (not nitrous, sc or turbo) to go about making those number with an NA motor for much cheaper than 14k

    plus the numbers posted were probably on an engine dyno

    Oh my god...

    Where are you from?

    I just bought this motor from Steve Schmidt in Indy a number of months ago.
    It makes almost double the Horsepower.

    I'll build you a motor if you are close enough, and i can guarantee you that it wont cost $14k.
