To summarize, after breaking a 918 valve spring I decided to rebuild my engine and went with all forged components. 10 of the 16 valves were bent so in went Ferrea valves and guides. Forged Mahl pistons and rings, Eagle H-Beams, polished the crank, bored the block 10 over, line bored, balanced and blueprinted. I need to put 500 miles on her then a check up for the dyno tune.
I should be ready to roll out by the 26th to go to G15. My tuner says my LS1+ should pull at least 450 at the wheels, maybe a little more.

01' Camaro SS - 6 spd, ASR, 1SD options.
Mods: Dart Pro PP ceramic coated heads, custom 220/224 cam, Kooks LT's and catted y-pipe, Ported LS6 oil pump, LS2 timing chain, K&N FIPK II, 85mm MAS, ported TB, Corsa exhaust, full BMR suspension, Koni SA shocks, Ground Control Coilovers, C5 brake upgrade. LS7 clutch kit.
430 RWHP 422 RWTQ.
