    Well drove the car, its been a while I updated the post. The engine is so much nicer then the LS1. It appears to run smoother and the power is incredible.

    It's all done with the exception of a vent tube going from the oil tank to the breather. Chassis dyno coming soon, but probably not until summer.

    Hello,

    How do you rate the work at texas speed? I'm needing to rebuild my LS7 with only 14,600 due to a failure that american heritage performance caused. The work was done by them at 11,800. I don't want to repeat the same mistake.

    Out of curiosity what happened?

    If I ever get rid of my big block I want to get an ls7... Too bad I'll never afford it

    Valve dropped. pieces out the exhaust. I have to either look for a reputable shop or start doing the tear down myself

    Did they forget the valve lash caps with the titanium valves? It's amazing how quickly they will wear down if you do. If so I'm surprised you lasted almost 3k miles.

    most all of the miles were long distance driving. maybe that's why it went as long as it did.
