hey guys ,
yeh pir4te its been known to get up an haul ass, pulls hard all the way , I love it. ls3 rocker arms with trunion kit is super realiable, Pull down a ls2, ls3 after its cranked out 150,000 plus ks and suss the rockers, they will look brand new. There's absolutely no justification to splash on some rollers.
Hey Vr senator, yeh sounds like a plan , how many are getting round that you know of? What are ya ITB;s like ? Im guessin great throttle response and mayb 40 hp.
Someguy360 I hvnt thought of takin a pic of engine bay, its pretty boring , looks like an 6.0l ls2 , oh its has a catch can lol. Don't go for bling , go for the 200mph tho

Traction issues every gear. I wasn't going for dyno numbers or 1/4 mile times. Its set for track days and the reefton spur. I'm working on the underbody atm , i've tested the front diffuser and that works really well and the rest , middle section and rear diffuser are at plastic welders now so im hoping for 700+kg of downforce at 104kmh.
I'll post some engine pics later in the week for people who hvnt seen what an ls2 looks like, I've just finished running it in so engines out , its getting the once over then straight back in . No issues with it , having a look coz theres not many darton midsleeves out there atm and just making sure alls good
From the outside ,even engine bay, everything looks as it came off showroom floor, the only things that visually you can pick is trans cooler,catch can, , maybe exhaust tips made em myself outta 90mm pipe underbody tray, and if ya open the boot, twin kickers

Where did you get the engine from? I'm interested in building something similar myself. Where did you get the tuning etc done?
