From The Driver Seat
Bolting everything onto our GM Performance Parts’ engine went smoothly, with the exception of making a trip or four to the parts/hardware store. We needed new intake and exhaust manifold gaskets, longer intake bolts, and we bought six different 8-rib belts to make sure we had the right size. That’s why we assembled our engine before making the trip to the dyno, because there’s nothing worse than wasting everyone’s time while your engine is sitting on a Super Flow dynamometer. Our LSX376 looks nasty with the accessories and covers painted black, and after our dyno testing is completed, we’ll paint the throttle body and tensioner black to match the other components. As far as power goes, in just four short weeks, we’ll be able to show you how many ponies our combo makes. Go to the blogs sections of truckinweb.com to cast your vote and we’ll mail out a free T-shirt to the person who comes the closest to guessing the real number.
