    Oh you are talking for durability! Gotcha now i thoght you were saying big inch long rod motors dont work haha my bad

    There has been some instances of large bore lsx cracking In large bore boosted apps as a result of core shift in manufacturing. I should have said 427 or less as it's still pretty thick and safe (4.125 X 4"), but I'd sonic check it. The long sleeve of custom ls block is better for long strokes (erl, etc) but the piston still gets thin. GM should have made the lsx sleeve a little longer (it's longer than stock, but not much). lsx is ~ the same deck height as a normal ls block. Most big lsx shops would not want to run a 454 lsx under big boost.

    Anyway, is the car going not going to run the 10.5 stuff anymore I take it? Sounds like a cool build.

    I hear the same thing on the LSX block, 410 is it. The link is enough said! http://www.erlperformance.com/home-domestic. Now these are the LS2 blocks I was talking about. I have a guy at work buying one of these over an LSX?

    Now is the car to run 10.5. It may but nothing like it was befor. I am almost + I spent $10,000 last year and it went all away trying to hang with the other car in the class. It was one run to put it were it is now. Now I am going to sound like a broken record. It was Box Stock! Stock S.victor, Stock AFR 225 I could go all nite. It's over.

    I just dont want to spend the cash. It would of needed $12,000 more just to run 5.30's. Oh I also took my street car and turned it into a race car. I drove it 12 times this year. I will drive it 12 time in one month next year!

    I will be there as I was 2 years ago. I will be the guy you talk to to get something done or Fixed. Not running it just helping out.

    Driving cars if fun. I wouldn't make excuses just do what make you happy dude.

    ERL, Virgina speed and RED do a lot of custom sleeving. ERL superdeck 1 is a very popular standard deck height block (they can make it 6 bolt also). Superdeck 2 is tall deck, but it's a pain to fit in things and needs adapters, etc. The aftermarket blocks always seem to need lots of little things done to get them up and running. These sleeved stock blocks are the way to go IMHO for power in the 1200-2000hp range. Some guys like the RHS block, but it is like $4500 or so

    I was looking for a cracked sleeve ls2 for a cheap core to send erl in the past, but never found much. They do a cheaper dry sleeve block for the lower power/NA type guys that lets you build big 454+ NA stuff standard deck height.

    I just had just replaced a LS2 and was going to buy the core. I swaped out the 243 heads with a set of cracked 5.3 from a 2000. The heads alone brought $350.00

    well if your talking about me. slow ride is going to help me forge an lq4 most likely, but nothing fancy just forged rods and pistons, some arp hardware. street friendly mild cam like the one i have now Thunder Racing 224/224 0.563/0.563 114+4 or maybe go a bit bigger. no budget for any head work, just letting the turbo make the power. budget build but should be very strong to take any boost I'd throw at it. hoping to set the boost to around 700whp shortly after break in and we'll see from there.

    Dumping $1500 into a built ford solid rear end swap and the maybe $2k at the forged motor, two big time consuming and money consuming projects to start off 2012 . my clutch, injectors and turbo are decent but might need upgrading, .... hmmm forgot I don't have an intercooler yet, this shit doesn't end!! got to make good progress during the winter so its ready in the spring.
