  1. Sold the big block car in August of 2008. Still friends with the current owner. Bought and built another S30 in 2009 (6.0 LS with a 4L65e), sold it in 2011 and that car is now back in Japan. Every 4.8/5.3 block, iron or aluminum can go .120" overbore to stock 5.7 LS1 bore. I would rather have the uber thick cylinder walls instead of a bit of displacement, especially since I am going to boost the shit out of it. From 1999-2013 the 5.3 was built 2.5 times over every other LS (4.8/5.7/6.0/6.2/7.0) combined. So they aren't rare in the slightest.
  2. This is a LMG 5.3 as well. Originally was planning on going with a Powerglide with a transbrake, etc. Decided on a TH400 instead with a custom transbrake that will allow me to leave in 2nd gear. Engine is done and buttoned up.
  3. Picked up a 5.3 pull out from a 2009 Tahoe with low miles. Had one bad DoD lifter (#8 exhaust). Pulled the heads to change all 16 lifters with LS7 replacements, new lifter trays, JTR 220/224 cam, LS9 head gaskets, and ARP head studs. Had the heads checked at the local machine shop and had him swap the stock single valve springs for a BTR 660" double valve spring kit. New replacement F-Body oil pan, windage tray, dipstick/tube, and pickup just showed up today.
  4. I will hold out looking for a set of OEM Z31T shafts as long as possible. Worse case, the Rockauto versions are cheap enough to live with regular street tires for a bit.
  5. I meant what Rockauto shows.... If the Rockauto pieces are only good for 300, that ain't gonna cut it. The 6.0 LS turbo setup I am tossing in the car has already made 690 rwhp at 14 psi in my K5. Eventually I am going with a backhalf with a narrowed Dana 60. Might need to run way less boost....lol.
  6. Excellent. I will hit you up later this week. How do these would with the Rockauto Turbo CV Z31 that are running the tripod setup vs the OEM cage? I thought I read you can't shorten the tripod style. I have a 280z btw. Rockauto show that one shaft at 20 5/8" and the other at 19 27/32". I wonder if it would be better to get two of the shorter shafts.
  7. You just love trying to spend other's money. NOT spending $1600 on a CV setup when a weld on adapters and brand new CV's cost less than $400. Besides, the long term plans for my car include a narrowed Dana 60 and a full backhalf tub and cage.
  8. This ain't my first rodeo DUDE. I have owned these cars for 20+ years, been a member of this site for 15 years, and have built many more for customers. Who do you think you are attempting to give me advice? Comedy!! I have absolutely ZERO interest in renting a tool if I already know 245mm will fit with a +0 offset 16x8 wheel. I was simply curious if anyone has run a +20mm and cleared everything in the rear. Blowing $50 on a rental tool (with a joke $400 deposit) is exactly that....blowing money. The topic was a simple question.. So if you aren't running a 16x8 wheel with +20mm offset (in the rear)....I am not interested in hearing your opinion(s).
  9. I planned on some bolt on 25mm spacer/adapters for the front. Coilovers might be in order to get the added clearance I need in the rear.
  10. I have owned two previous 1975 280z, both ran 245/50/16 on XXR 002 16x8 +0mm, but needed to roll the fender lips. I was just thinking a +20mm offset on a 16x8 will tuck under more to get away from having to roll the fender lips.
