I have been hesitant to claim any power specs for the motor, mainly because I don't want to get called out on it if I fall short and also because I don't have any wheel dyno baseline for the motor before I started. Not to mention that this is my first major motor build and I am pretty new to the LS1 world. With that said I would be very happy if I got 400/400 hp/tq.
Here is the breakdown of the motor build:
Block: 2001 LS1 three pass honed to 3.905"
Crank: Stock LS1 ground .010" under
Connecting Rods: Stock LS1
Rod Bolts: ARP 134-6006
Pistons: Mahle LS1314905F04 Forged Pistons w/ Rings
Heads: 241 Castings - DIY Ported and Polished
Intake Manifold: LS6
Injectors: 28 lb Injectors from an LQ4
Throttle Body: Smoothed Stock LS1
Intake Valves: Manley Race Series Stainless Steel Valves
Valve Springs: Trick-Flow TFS-16918-16 Pacaloy Beehive
Rocker Arms: Stock
Camshaft: Trick-Flow TFS-30602001
Timing Gear: Trick-Flow Dual Chain
Clutch: LS7 Clutch and Flywheel
Transmission: T-56 from what I was told was a 60K mile Z-28
Oil Pump: Melling High Pressure
Oil Pan: LS2
Power Steering Pulley: Turn One Billet Aluminum Pulley
Rod and Main Bearings Bearings: Clevite
Camshaft Bearings: Sealed Power
If I didn't list it above it's most likely stock. I have been keeping pretty good records of the engine build so I'll have a post for that as soon as I get some time to process all the pictures.
