I think am going to like this.
I always wanted to do a 4.8 LS with some kind of forced induction, sometime am thinking i should have done that for the camaro instead of a sbc gen1.
I want to build a boosted 4.8 in the future(or now, i just need cash). So am going to be following this closely.

yea man i'll be as detailed as i can be and go over the cost of the stuff i buy and the time i put into the things i fabricate to give people a genuine idea of what it really costs to do something like this. there are guys who own welders and can do things im gonna have to outsource who make combinations for under $4k including the cost of the car, i'll detail all the parts, why i bought them, where i bought them, and what they cost so people can understand what really goes into a project like this. infact i think ill upgrade my first post to reflect that....

Don't skimp or skip on the Valvejob Phil.
Boost creates heat.
Especially on the exhaust valve head Face.
I would shoot for .070"-.080" wide.
Ferrera stainless race valves from Real Street Performance down in Florida near you.
I still like interference angles.
No problems 1 year later in the wifes B20ZB Honda engine.
Interference angles used Intake and exhaust sides.
Almost 30,000 miles since using Real Street Ferrea Super Alloy Valves and my Valvejob grinding handiwork.

Bonus using good stainless valves is they are profiled already for max flow shape.
3 angle valve job be helpfull.

Run plenty of top ring end gap. Boosting hard planned.

Hellcat is not faster than all.
The 2014-015 SRT VIPER IS REAL FAST PHIL.
REAL STREET PERFORMANCE VIDS OF THEIR 014 SRT VIPER IS CLEANING HOUSE.
C7ZO6.....JUST NADDA.
I WAS RIGHT.

BRIAN! i thought you were done for man! hey i saw the c7 cars at moroso a couple weeks ago, z06 and just regular c7... nobody was making fast passes... the c6's are all smoking em... maybe no one has figured out the technology yet, but they sure were NOT impressive at the track...

fyi, the only hellcat there ran a best of 11.9 @122

thnks for the insight on the valve job, i was just gonna clean up the ports and replace the springs but you're right, i should upgrade the intake valve size to a 2.00" and have all the valves replaced with ferrea stainless.

T/A is going together this year.

Rule #1 taught to me....always keep them guessing.

Naaa.
Got banned from Digital Corvette Forum.



with a C5/ C6 wont race either.
Grumpy witnessed all.
Junk is my bud.

Not sure on valve size choices. I dont know LS like you do. 80-90 % sizing rule like Grumpy stated before a good idea.
Unshrouding works. Pontiac did on all cylinder heads 1968-1981.
Fully machined.
Do it with a die grinder like Grumpy shows.

ok.
kids are growing. Jami is walking, almost running.

Doing taxes soon.
$$$ for machine shop labor.
455 #1 to build soon enough.

Congrats on the 4.8LS score.

4L60E can be built on a budget $.
Not near as strong as 4L80E but get the car running and driving.
Spend the $$$ in the engine build right now. Most important.

Since You and me think alike Phil...
Race Fast is Primary concern and street manners civil means Zilch to us...
Can't make your mark with 12's alone....
Low 11's Deep 10's are were we need to be only.

Different trans choices to meet the need.
TH400. TH350.

FORD C4.
FORD AOD.

C4 HAS A BOLT ON BELLHOUSING.
SAME AS LS 4L60E.

LS BELLHOUSING TO C4 FORD ??
SUCKS UP ONLY 25-30 HP THE C4 FORD.
PROVEN IN 1400 HP 5.0 CARS WE BOTH KNOW.
