Now you're headed in the right direction! Mike told me he talked with you a while back, he's a good friend of mine, he got me all my parts I needed when I built mine.

Can you tell me - Does the LQ9 have square port heads? My eventual goal would be to stuff the magnuson heartbeat supercharger on there, and my head is spinning with different configurations and this that etc.. Long story short, it is bolt-on compatible with the LS3 setup... so it'd need to fit that profile..

My biggest issue is what Mike is suggesting for the "ideal build" is more than I can really afford at this point (so it seems).. The L76 is the "perfect engine" choice, however it looks like nobody sells them as anything other than a drop out (market price of $3k+).. I'd need to find the "equivalent other engine" for whatever I can sell the LS1/parts I don't need for.. In my uninformed world, that's not looking terribly promising- Really looking like I'll just be cutting my losses and stuffing a well built LS1 in there.. The extra weight is meh, but lighter is always better..

Thoughts?

Edit: The other goal for the "perfect engine" (with a 4.0" bore) would be to simply use the GM Performance CNC ported LS3 heads.. ~$500-$600/side, and they apparently are some of the best flowing heads out there without getting STUPID with your Benjamins.. (~$2k/side) (GM Part number 88958758?)

My setup is an LQ9 with CNC ported LS3 heads, and a BIG cam. I had to flycut my pistons. Also a bunch of other bolt ons, I'm righ at the 500whp mark now. Over the winter I'm going to build a pump gas 454, shoot for 700whp on the motor, then add a 200 shot of go juice.

Does anyone have any good numbers for what the "known" limit of a non-M E46 differential is?

Lots of good options for an LSD setup for the Non-M housing... but before I'd consider taking that step I'd love to know that people are pushin' 500+ hp/tq through the non-M units with no issues.. Otherwise I'd have to stuff a Ford 8" in there or something..

Anyone?

It's been a while..

Project isn't dead, but "life" took over - Wind damaged shingles and a soon to be new roof put things on hold, then the garage floor got epoxy coated...

Now that those things are almost "put to bed"... the wagon can come back into the picture (and the garage!).



Met with Danny Popp last week, resident corvette nutjob (who's been workin' on these things for 20+ years) and I think I've got a pretty polished final plan..

Going to stay with the LS1, do LS6 (243 casting) heads, LS7 cam, upgrade the valve-train hardware, new bearings/seals all the way around, LS2 timing gear/chain and appropriate junk to make cam position sensor work, and a dry sump oil system (provided I can stuff the giant canister in there somewhere)... Eyeballing the Dailey Engineering setup- I'm sure I'm forgetting something..





This setup should give me 450HP at the rear wheels with ~7000+ rpm and über reliability all day long (track, autox, grocery duty)

First step, pull the old engine out and send it to a new home.. Anyone want a well loved M54?

Floor was not a DIY job - Originally it was going to be, but in light of "life" there was no feasible way I was going to be able to allot a full week to do it myself (not to mention I'd be learning the tricks as I go, renting equipment, etc.).. Contracted a local guy and opted for a Polyaspartic Urea compound in lieu of a traditional 100% solids high build "epoxy".. They did it in a day - and now I can move on with the rest..

Yes, Danny is nuts.. Hell of a driver too.. He also has an affliction for high-revving V8s, so he's definitely feeding the fire in this project

Default Baddest Grocery Getter EVER.

Why not do a custom grind cam to LS7 specs and save the hassle of having to switch everything just to make the CPS work correctly? Tons of people have done that. FAST intake manifold?

Hadn't thought of that... Not a bad solution! The main attraction to the LS7 cam is that there is a plethora of them that are available... seems like one could get them cheaper, but obviously you have to consider the added cost of compatibility repair.. Would definitely be a more elegant solution..

Will likely do a FAST intake/TB... but hadn't gotten that far.. Admittedly still swimming in push rod specs, dos/don'ts... what can be swapped between LS's and what can't..

Because I was allowed on the floor yesterday, a quick shot of what it looks like up close -

We still haven't met!

I had my E36 summers on it, ready to thrash... This weekend is Cincy SCCA's Test and Tune event, then it's going on stands after I shred the tires and get a "baseline" for what the stockness is all about...
