91 coupe full interior
05 6.0 LQ4 with 41K miles 1100
used 244/250 .612 .620 cam 150
used ported 317 heads with patriot gold springs 600
used gm intake off ebay 99.00
pro-systems carb high priced 620
new ls6 timing chain i think it was 80 bucks
new push rods 80 bucks

So far best to date is a 6.79 @ 103mph. Car should weigh around 3100 with me in it. Thats with a 4:11 gear with a small 3k stall. My 60 foot not that good cause of stall only a 1.53. Gonna get a restall around 4 or so and try again. Hope this helps


98 Z28 M6 with a few bolt-ons best pass 12.31 @ 111mph, 7.89 @ 88mph in the 1/8th with a 1.73 60'

I did it the stupid way, but will make more power in the end. I went 408, higher compression setup, instead of sticking with a stock motor.

I also did everything new, instead of used.

Just on the LS side of things:

408: Machine work, block, internals, gaskets: 6500
L92 Heads + work done to them: $900
Cam kit, with upgraded springs .675 lift: $870
Trans with stall: $1500
Fuel: $700
AJE Set up: $350
MSD: $150
Intake: $275
Carb: $200
Headers: $600

Yeah $12,000. Pretty silly, but again, I bought everything new, the bottom end is top notch, I got the head work done for cheap on a favor, heads flow 352CFM now. I could have gotten everything used, stuck with a stock motor and sprayed this piss out of it, thrown a huge cam in it and run 9s, but I'm hoping with the set up I have I run bottom 9s on spray, and with more convertor maybe even kiss up to a 8.99.

what'd you use for a transmission? and how did you mount the motor in the car? did you use the stock crossmember?
