1G Foglights b!tches
So, what you're saying is I should build a 4gswap to make up for you LSing the original 4gswap, right?
Yes that sounds correct . Still a firm believer in benefits of 4g. A 4g will hold 1400awhp with stock crank and block. A v8 LS typically needs aftermarket on both. Now if going for 1600hp+, than v8 makes a lot of sense since aftermarket block is needed either way. 4g is also a very cost effective 6-800hp option that won't have you listening for rod knock. Plus, Manual or auto, the DSM vendors keep coming up with better parts (because they race)
I just can't leave well enough alone.
Stock bottom end 5.3 stuff is pretty impressive though. Tune has to be good and bigger the turbo the better.
Brian's 3.4 6g build is badass but I can't stomach the cost of the billet crank, the lead time to get one, and the replacement cost and leadtime when the inevitable happens. I'm an auto fan, so not sure how the w4a33 will hold up to that tq on the street on a regular basis. Thinking you can spend all the money upfront and have no issues is one of the fallacies of the platform. Or then scared to beat on it so good parts and mediocre results. That's just my opinion and path though, which isn't for everyone.
