That's a big ol' list of fun stuff.
I had my engine built by a guy in Vegas over the summer. The only long lead time part he had was pistons. He does a bunch of LS basted engines, so he tends to just keep stuff in stock.knocked that out a couple years ago, thankfully... gonna verify with PCM of NC which o ring to run with the melling HV/HP pump/spring combo, I'm willing to bet its red but we'll see.
on another note- I'm this close to just getting the bottom end built out to 402/3,shockingly its difficult to get lead times or even returned calls and emails from various shops, I assume others are having problems sourcing parts like everyone
Did you use that to take the clear coat off? Mine looks like shit.this stuff right here. worked really well, bought 3 cans for everything you see there

im a glutton for punishment lol. I tell you what- when this front diff grenades I'll do that if you get me hardened 2WD output shaft lol
As much cash as you're putting into this, why not upgrade the fans from the get go?I'm just posting this for anyone who's curious etc, but this is the fan shroud I bought a couple years ago, 13" SPALs are on it, rated for around 1700cfm, probably more like 1300 per in the vehicle, guessing. Which is about 1/4 the original mech fan's flow from what ive read on the forum, so that's interesting, but I think as long as you do the big rad or that crossflow rad, low t-stat, get the fans on early things shouldn't get too hot (this has all been done before/proven obv, I'm just talkin out loud). Its honestly shocking how small/thin the OE rad is, I see why GM put the mother of all mech fans on there.! Also only around 20 amps per fan, probably 25 with the heat.? Maybe the paint will resemble the headers, which should be back anywhere from 17-27 Jan View attachment 103470
