The engine is mildly modded but right now the intention is to keep it naturally aspirated. I built the engine from the block up and added a few upgrades along the way. I'll post some more on the engine build eventually but here is a quick break down:

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
Pushrods: Stock
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: Modified Corvette LS2
Power Steering Pulley: Turn One Billet Aluminum Pulley
Rod and Main Bearings Bearings: Clevite
Camshaft Bearings: Sealed Power
Fuel Pressure Regulator: Aeromotive 13129

Next purchases:
Holley Fuel Rails
Holley HP EFI, ECU And Harness Kit

It's been a long time in the making so I can't wait to crank it up for the first time. I'll definitely post a video when the day comes.

Sounds like you are probably making 400hp and a grip of torque.

Should be a fun car. Are you developing a kit to sell to the rest of us when you're done ?

^ It would be fun to do it yourself but doubt there will be a kit. Lots of custom work and be prepare to go the extra mile(s).

I've considered it but I'll have to see how much custom work is required. Maybe I'll put some feelers out once I finish the project to see how much interest I can get.
