The parts gathering is slowly coming to an end & I can officially count on 1 hand what's left.. ..I was able to flip my V lid plus some other parts & hacked away a few more things off the list. Picked up:

- CHE trunnion kit
- Morel 6504 lifters
- LPE hub (micro hub I initially purchased is the wrong one.. )

I have an excel spreadsheet to keep everything organised but to update the thread, here's the official list of what I have/what's left..

- 2.38/8.6 Pullies
- Ported LSA heads
- LT1Z Stage 1 cam kit/gaskets
- LS9 Headgaskets
- Gates K080670HD belt
- TR7IX Spark plugs
- ARP head bolts
- ZL1 lid
- ZR1 Coolant pump
- Expansion tank
- 3/4" hose for cooling system
- CHE Trunnion kit
- Morel 6504 lifters
- New Era 4" intake
- 90mm TB

Still need:

- Injectors
- BTR .660 valve springs
- Headers
- Pushrods
- Get heads inspected/flowed


Been an eventful winter/spring gathering parts & researching but the light at the end of the tunnel is real close. Planning the teardown for the end of July once I'm back from vacation..

I'm always eyeing ctsvowners & FB. Can generally pick ID850's for $400ish. Missed out on a set for $300 last week, sniped in minutes

LT1Z (GP Tuning) has a strong following & most folks LOVE his stage 2.5 cam. With that said, there's a ridiculous amount of options depending on goals.

I went with the stage 1 since it's pretty unsuspecting with little to no lope but packs plenty of midrange punch which is exactly what I'm after. The stock cam has lift around 0.490/0.480 & this "baby cam" bumps that up to 0.615/0.600 lift, with a stealth idle...

It should be ridiculous considering the car is no slouch as is..

A local 6MT V put down 640whp with a stage 2 cam, headers & a 2.5" pulley. Think I should be able to dabble with my 700whp goal..

Yea, I got sucked in hard..

I want to break 700whp but not getting my hopes up, just as long as it's healthy I'll be happy.

I think that's similar to what CCColtsicehockey ended up with...
I'd be curious to know what you end up saving having pieced it all together yourself.

My guess is you come in somewhere around 690-705 range. I would say you should be happy with anything in that ballpark. Basically, I wouldn't be surprised if you hit 700 but I think it is more likely you come in right under it honestly. Also depends on how aggressive you go with the tune for max power vs reliability.

I got 656 I believe it was for the final numbers with it tuned for the street. He said he was able to put down 677 with it tuned to the max but I said I wanted it dialed back some so as to make it safer to daily with all the miles I planned to put on it.. You have the ported heads over me but other than that I think our builds are fairly similar. I have a ported blower snout but not the blower itself. I also long term would like to get over 700whp but I think I will need to do heads and blower porting to get there.

I'll make sure to tally everything once I'm done. So far I've been able to shave $800 off of GP Tunings package price, it all adds up..

I'm thinking 680ish to be realistic & not trying to go overly aggressive with the tune, I'll take a hp loss for reliability all day.

It's a mixed bag..
Several knowledgeable guys there who don't really share too much..
On the flip side, a lot of members there who post a lot, but really don't know that much.
They act like they do, but they're clueless

Overall a great community though.
If you don't know any better, it's easy to follow the advice of a cuck-in-training if you know what I mean.

Definitely the smart approach.

I am not even 100% sure if I went ported blower and ported heads if I would for sure make it over 700hp which is why I may never do it. My real desire would be 750 cause just to be insane and have more power at the wheels than hellcat owners have at the crank
