anyone running a lsx376? i am going to be putting a lsx376 in my truck withing the next few weeks. i spun a rod bearing in my stock motor and decided to go this route. i wanted to see if anyone had pictures of lsx in a tbss and i wanted to know how to mount the coilpacks. and is there anything i should know about doing this swap i plan on running the edelbrock intake manifold and throwing at least 12psi of boost at it.

Why not rebuild your block? U will get more for your money... 376lsx would a nice addition if you were putting a car/truck that didnt already have a ls motor in it

i was going to do a stroker and cam in my block but im not really trying to brake records or another tranmission lol. i figer with the lsx i can throw 12 lbs of bost at it right off the crate and not have to worry about it and if something does happen it comes with a 2 year 50k mile warrenty.

IIRC.... the Edelbrock Pro Flo XT will NOT work with l92 heads, which come on the LSX376....

Totally up to you, I haven't done research on anything other than the cathedral ports for what I'm thinking about doing :) Not to say cathedral is best, but it is what is stock and what I have chosen....for now anyway....

P.S. If you already have the Edelbrock and need to sell it, hit me up :)

One thing to think about is that motor has a 58 tooth reluctor wheel, your 06 has a 24. You would have to change that out that means removing the crank, or use the Lingenfelter kit which is a magic box that lets you use a 58x motor in a 24x vehicle. For the coils you could use the stock valve covers, LSA covers, other aftermarket, or wait for Katech to get some of their killer ones back in stock.

Read the fine print! They through out the warranty if you boost it.

Save your money a build a motor!:2cents: The LSX376 does not even have FORGED RODS!:confused1: Not worth the money.
