    Holy crap man, that thing turned out great!! Love the picture of the gauges. Mine showed up like that last week but haven't had a chance to see them sitting in there yet.

    Done! Well, possibly. From what I hear, these projects are "never done"....

    Tuned up! The best numbers of the day came in at 707 horsepower and 669 torque to the wheels with only 8.29 lbs of boost. Might be due for a smaller pulley already!

    I wasn't really worried about having any work done to the heads as the flow on these stock LS3 heads is already pretty kick ass. I was talked into doing a 416 stroker though!

    Pete at Total Precision Engines was the man! We went forged internals and studded everything.

    • 4" stroke Molnar Technologies forged crankshaft
    • 6.125" Molnar Technologies forged connecting rods
    • CP-Carrillo forged pistons and rings
    • Fel-Pro gaskets throughout
    • ARP Pro Series main and head studs
    • Torque plate bored and honed
    • Rotating assembly balance
    • COMP Cams 54-454-11 camshaft
    • COMP Cams 26926TS-KIT Beehive LS dual valve springs
    • COMP Cams 7955-16 Pushrods
    • COMP Cams 13702-KIT GM LS Series Retrofit Trunnion Kit
    • Katech C5-R timing chain
    • 160-degree Lingenfelter thermostat
    • Melling M295 oil pump
    • LS2 timing chain dampener


    I'm hoping that will do the trick!






    How much did stroking it cost you all said and done?

    Beautiful!. I went very similar for the engine build in the 53. You should be able to run 15lbs of boost.

    I'm thinking it was around $5000.00 for everything (I'd have to dig for the receipt to remember exactly)

    I didn't realize Photobucket snapped out of it and gave our pictures back to us. Pleasant surprise to be back and do a couple of updates!

    Not too much with the car other than some driving.

    I got around to removing the windshield (front and back) moldings that the glass shop installed. They weren't supposed to install those and defeat the purpose of the flush mount windows that have.




    2nd gen Camaro mirrors painted and installed, black door handles/locks, then a car show "Best Muscle Car" win the next day. Completely surprised me. There were some sweet rides there!

    What size rim and tire did you run up front?
    I also have the Heidts Pro G Front subframe on a 69 camaro project that I'm working on and was wondering if you could run a 19x10 front wheel with a 275 tire.

    Thanks in advance for any help, Mark

    I went with a 18"x9" wheel in the front and 255/35-18 tire on those. If I remember correctly when I was trying to figure all of that out, the '69 Camaro can go with a 10" wide front wheel with your fenders that have a little bit more width. Heidt's does a horrible job of instructions and info on the fitment of their Pro-G subframe so I had to spend a lot of time figuring stuff like this out. I actually found a lot of helpful info from Detroit Speed's assembly instructions for their subframe. Maybe look those over and see if it helps. The most important advice I can give is to learn and measure what backspacing you'll need. That's what makes the difference on how the wheels fit in the wheel wells.

    The best thing to do, which I'm glad I did, was to find someone that has a wheel fitment kit to measure your set up. (Wheel fitment kit example... Summit Racing - wheel fitment kit)

    Hope this helps!

    60 degree Colorado January calls for a wash and drive. ...or wash, drive, and wash. Whatever.

    Installed the radiator closeout panel, tinted some windows, and cleaned up the intake tubing with some sanding/grinding then black powdercoating.



    ...and of course a "gas station picture"
