thanks bro, i would think it will need a small bore as it has 146,ooo or so on it so it will need a little cleaning up im sure... and also i am no fast and furiouse driver..lol, but it is fun to hang the ass end out there and hear it wind up!
thats great, i am not sure what the iron head motor looks like yet,i hope its clean in there, my car is the one with the high miles, that motor will go in the garage and be built at a later date, money money money...lol
yea i know! a bunch of us down here like to go out at night and do some drifting at this abandoned factory down the road, just want a stout bottom end that wont fly apart, my car is not where it needs to be yet but it drifts fairly good, need more suspension and a stroger motor, possibly a better rear end as the 10 bolts are not that strong, but for now it is holding, so a 355 or a 396 or a stock bore with forged internals?? i am open to suggestions!
dude you aren't whippin around a vtec honda. get some low end torque and really let the rear loose
edit: (google is my friend)
"When we say that something "bears repeating" we are saying that it is important enough to say (or write) again, in the hope that the statement is understood by the audience. This would usually not be used in good quality formal writing"
The LT1 tables actually max out at 7000 rpm...but maybe with stock tach or shift extensions it appears more.
Are you sure about the 7K limit
My 355 uses the stock PCM with ED Wright tune and according to my datalogs it regulary spins above 7K rpm....
Maybe my datalogs are wrong?
As for the OP 7K shortblock is easy as for 8K I'd use a totally forged rotating assembly.....shortblock assembled and balanced by a (GOOD MACHINIST) and it won't be cheap....7K shortblock stock crank, forged rods and pistons....and once again balanced and assembled by a Good machinist will provide a reliable base for your engine.
However, the limiting factor of your build is going to be valve train....
Cheap, Fast, Reliable.......choose two....
1995 Corvette, AI 200CC heads, EM LTs, D44 w/3.45s, 3500vig, 58CC TB, Mez HD EWP etc.
The first thing that came to mind was the rpm restriction with a stock lt1 computer. The max you can have it tuned to is 7200-7250rpm. You're only choice would be a full stand alone engine mangement system. $$$$$
300 bucks. Full stand alone fuel/spark.
