    Depends on your budget.

    I went with the cheap cast iron 5.3 with gen 4 rods, open up the ring gaps and add boost. Also using standard ECU and modified harness.

    Personally I would go gen 4 rods and cast block

    What's your budget? If it is small of 4 figures, kiss the above ideas goodbye.

    Those ve 6 litres with 6l80e would be cheap conversion & seem to pull some decent numbers when you add cam & stally
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Well this build is going to happen, will start looking for parts this week , goal is to have it back on the road with a ls by March. My goals are to drive it to the track & run a 11.50 & drive home N/A & high 10s with some giggle gas. Lets see how close it will go.

    Why such a long time...if your good on the tools the conversion should take about 8 weeks max.

    Also just FYI, I ran 11.2 @123 with cam, home ported heads and a stall converter. All with a humble shitty LS1

    Just goals mate, sooner the better, just with work, christmas and going on a cruise early next year. So looking for a l98 @ the moment. Once i find a engine it will be getting the basics. New head gaskets, arp head studs, double valve springs, cam & lifters. Should the oil pump be done? & new rings & bearings. Will be looking at working out a fuel system straight away as well . So far these are my cam selction. Bottom 2

    Engine, gearbox, standalone ECU, 9" and aftermarket FI for $2500 - you're either stealing the parts or telling us the conversion cost as if we were your Mrs.

    $2500 is the budget for the turbo alone, right?

    Yep, my missus thinks it cost $5k all up, which it did... for the diff!

    Yes do oil pump and double row timing chain while it's apart

    Fuel system once you get it out of the tank use a Corvette reg/filter - it's cost effective and very popular for swaps, then whatever line and fittings you can squeeze into the 2500 budget

    Get on YouTube and search Sloppy mechanics. Have a look at what's in his 6.0 Colorado that made 1000rwhp. It's pretty sketchy but it's a good education of what you can get away with. shows you what factory parts can take. Might help you figure out what really needs doing to do it budget.

    Look at Justin's HQ. Stock manifolds with some steam pipe and a $1200 Borg Warner turbo. Guys run into the 8s on similar combos.

    Thats a cute shopping list....not budget but.

    Personally I would get off the LS1/2 alloy block shit.

    Get yourself a cast iron 5.3 or 4.8, put a s475 borg warner on it, reveresed manifolds and a stock computer on pump 98. That should run you deep into the 10's if not a high 9.

    Dont get caught up on the "must have fancy turbo, fancy manifolds must have e85 etc"

    My old NA combo compared to the new boosted combo are light years apart, to the point that it turns the tires at 100mph now. Krisr on PF has ridden in both and can give you a fair assessment.

    Mother fucker is on the money.....sloppy mechanics are your best point of call.

    But as you asked for a $$ break down

    1600 - 5.3
    200 - 880cc injectors
    200 - FPR1200
    250 - LS9 cam
    200 - manifolds
    1200 - turbo
    250 - fuel rails
    150 - ebay intercooler
    200 - ebay radiator
    900 - HP tuners - tuning done by Krisr and Myself. This includes the AEM AFR meter
    1000 - pumps, lines and fittings
    50 - 3 bar maps sensor

    if your handy on the tools its pretty easy
