Well I wish I could tell you this was some off the wall different setup but Id be lying.. Its your typically BUDGET LS turbo fox. I would say 90% of the parts are used. As of yesterday I have owned the car for 2 years and its already done some street racing and been in a few videos. Figured it was time to throw it up on TECH.

Quick run down:

04 LM7 5.3 {regapped rings##
228/228 cam
pac springs
ls9 headgaskets
ebay headstuds
s475
th400 manual vb
e85
160lb injectors
magnafuel 4303


Sorry for the pics being in black and white. Only a handful of people knew about the build until till ran.

How I bought the car



5.3

Without these two I couldn't have done it!! Two kick azz guys

badass build! doing a very similar setup with a LQ4.
Thank you!! 6.0's are nasty!!


I'm on the fence on what to do next....

I'm either going to gen 3.5 my current motor {swap pistons and rods from a gen 4 5.3## or go LY6 {gen 4 6.0##. Both routes are cheap. Gen 4 5.3 parts are $150.00 and the 6.0 shortblock is $650.00. Might also swap to 243/799's and a tbss intake with 87mm tb.

Then sell this LM7 and use the money to upgrade the 475 to a billet 480 with race cover. its like $699 for the upgrade.


very nice build. And break of parts and cost!!!!
Thank you!! Took about a year to build.
