Im still at a toss up if Im going f/i or not. I have a GT4088 here that would be perfect @ 7-8psi, and the cam I chose will work great either n/a or f/i. But time will tell, and if I do decide to go f/i, it wont be till sometime mid-July 2011.

WOW I just came across this, I'm actually planning a LS1 build too, no joke maybe LS3 if I can cough up the money, but starting it sometime mid next year as I currently have other financial commitments.

My plans are definately for force induction TT LS seen some good numbers from it.

When I was planning to go RX-7 LS-1, Hinson Supercars was the conversion kit I was going to get. They've started making Turbo kits for the LS-1 RX-7's, not sure but if there are any fitament issues with other kits you might want to try this system out:

^^ I have actually been looking at the designs they have, but will be making my own manifolds when/if the time comes for a turbo.

Did you end up getting the parts from DGR fab or are they still non-responsive?

Yeah the mounts came in, and will be installed either tonight or tomorrow. I still need to make arrangements to get my car from the old house to the new one
