^------ That would be about the top of the list.
On a more frendly budget, I would build a 4.8L GM LSX engine out of the scrap yard. Use a L92 head or a LS7 head with smaller valves and a nice Mike Jones Solid Roller with as much CR as your fuel will tolerate (AV or Meth.).
Cam King was right, It was only a theretical Q:
I used to watch a Bit of Boat racing as a kid. I've always been a huge fan for any thing petrol driven, Cars and dirt bikes being on top of the list. But as of the last few weeks, I had an uncanny reminder of these boats. So now that I'm older, I'm thinking "well?"
To be honest, I had to go research these 4.8s. We don't get a lot of the U.S cars trucks down here as a rule (other then F-trucks, silverados/suburbans....Used for hauling Drag cars or horse floats). My knowledge of the LS is only from our own HOLDEN 5.7ltr. Coming from the old school, Plastic bumper bared cars dont interest me, So I've missed the boat on these new Gen's. Guys do play with them, Most are Hair dryer driven, or Head/cam/ tuned as every day streeters.
How serious are the guys playing the field? If its like the drag racing; A lot of stuff will be pre-built Imports. I'm not of the cheque book racer personally. prefur to build it myself. If you can stay with the pack, ya got some thing to smile about
I have a Q: tho. What advantages, would you have using the 4.8 over 5.7 block, eliminating the shrouding issue?
