    Yeah, that puts you in a very tough spot.

    Yeah see that was also my wife's concern with me becoming an LEO in Southern CA, specifically Riverside county. The Mongols and some off shoots of MS-13 do a lot of the drug running around that area, and I would have been dealing with those kinds of folks. Man I do not envy you, but thank you very much for what you do. You keep the monkeys in the barrel, and us safe from them.

    Yeah I have heard that. In CA you have to work the prisons first in the Sheriff's department. So your first 2-3 years as a rookie you are working the jails. When I was in backgrounds for Riverside County Sheriff's dept. my wife was not happy with me potentially having to work the prisons, it is county prisons which usually have a bit more hardcore criminals, city jail is just the drunk tank, county and federal are a different story.

    I am surprised BTR would use them, I like BTR dual springs though they make some of, if not the best valve springs. I had Patriot Gold Duals on my car, and I was glad when I heard BTR bought them, and was working to maintain and improve the design.

    Wait you had the LS6 springs with that BTR cam? Or was that the stock cam? I see that the cam should work with those springs, but I have seen them fail too often. Glad your valve and piston did not become best buddies, I wish I could be more of a help, but it sounds like you are on it.

    The Green Mile? You got this John, will that mean less overtime? Or will it mean more overtime?

    Ohh man the all new LS1 power! I remember those in the dealerships and being just under driving age and sitting in them, they were super expensive at that time too, $37k for a fully loaded WS6 and about the same for a fully loaded SS.

    @Tino of the setups I know that make around that, you would be looking at 243 heads, or you could get the 317 heads milled down about .006" and run something like a 238/242 .605/.515 lift at 113 LSA (I am just putting a rough grid out there since this is a huge cam, but it would be streetable.) I would say with that setup a FAST 92 with a Nick Williams 92mm TB would be your best bet. Of course Disney's idea of going with a place that will spec you something will be your best bet, I recommend Cunningham Motorsports in Temecula, CA as Ryne is a good buddy of mine and he will recommend a good solid grind. I do not know what he charges for a spec fee, but I can ask him if you want. Otherwise LJMS (Little John Motorsports) is pretty spot on and he has some awesome cams.

    Hell I can do it, so Tino it should be no problem for you.

    Vette Accessories are in different locations. If you want to use the Fbody alternator bracket then Mike is correct that there is a hole missing that needs to be tapped in the drivers side of the block. If it is a truck, then the 5.3 and 6.0 have the same accessory setup and it "should" be a direct swap.

    Yet... And I be knocking on wood.

    And you were talking about a better built muscle car??? I was very opposed to the 5th gens, I drove a couple of them, my favorite was a centrifugal style blower one with a small blower cam making around 600 to the tire on pump gas. I do love how a big cammed lsx car drives, they just have stupid amounts of instant a$$ kicking fun, but it is more violent than a turbo/centrifugal blower. Roots blower cars are also a kick in the pants. Some, * cought * grand prix gtp * cough *, are a kick to the balls.

    Hahaha yeah I don't take any meds for my brain buddy. The 2.3T is one if not THE best engine Ford has produced, the other idea was to put it in the Z28 to mess with people, heck I need to get as famous as Barry.
  14. Random thought thread

    A turbo 2.3l would be amazingly fun to screw with folks.

    It is way too red, less red more gray or wimbledon white with blue stripes.
