Ok all, most know me, some don't, hit me up if not.. so I have a tired 08 3SS 160k on it bought it with 85k stock(ish). I noticed after I bought it 2 bell housing bolts loose so I figured the Trans was replaced?? Either way now has 160k full boltons, runs like a raped ape with a pcm mail tune. Now sitting on (thanks to members I'll shout you out during build) CNC ported 243 heads, Matt's older stage3 cam, Brian tooley full kit, etc still need a torque converter, injectors, oil pump, head gaskets etc.. Not pulling the trigger till October or so still piling parts together but consider this my SLOW build 2.0page.

And you say mine has work done to it and you decide toup the antee with heads, torque converter and injectors...

Sounds like I have to get some bonus checks to catch you now
No need to catchup we can all be the cool kids. Been thinking for a few yrs now I would love to do cam etc. but didn't want to spend the coin. Well now OT has been fruitful and continues to be so I figured shit nows the time. Need to start saving all over again for a Trans now but again not looking to set records just want a head turner.
Bullshit tapatalk won't let me add pics..

You just keep getting me to think about add more and more.

Was on the fence about heads. Going to have to talk to Brad (Tuner) after the dyno tune on Sept 7.

Suggestions to get me to my acceptable number.

THanks big shooter, honestly I can't use them, as weird as that sounds. Tahoe (el hefe) has 317s, that's fine with stock LQ9 DD, TBSS (lil pepe) is what it is, and I mean my latest bad financial decision with the 96 SS, I mean I kinda want to leave it SBC/gen2/LT1. I wouldn't turn any offers down, I appreciate the consideration!! But I'd be lyin if I hadn't thought about LS1-ing the camaro just to keep the LT1 on a stand. IDK dude. But don't turn anything on my account, thank you sir!

Mike a true gentleman. The heads will be pulled off a running 08 3SS w 150k. I can take anyone for a ride now, video, whatever you need. No motor noise I'm just building cause it's cheaper to do this then buy a new truck payment, insurance, etc. So I decided to throw a few grand in the ol' SS instead so now I have what I want, built by me, and no monthly payment. And no plans on touching the bottom end. I know Trans is gonna call me soon..
