    Sweet, this is about the combo I keep thinking about dropping in my heap.

    My guess is you'll beat that 550 RWHP.

    Let us know how it turns out.

    At first, I was thinking- "Dream on, I mean LS engines are good, but 550rwhp from a 6.0. Let's be realistic." And then I saw the hair dryer...:)

    Good luck, let us know.

    What fuel are you running? Do you plan on water/alky injection? How much timing is in your tune? 14 psi on 10:1 compression with 91 octane should be interesting long term............. ;)

    The LQ4 is the perfect stock block to turbo with 9.4 compression, not 10:1. Im doing a LQ4 with L92 heads and LS3 intake, and a 76mm turbo. Good luck on the dyno, interested in the results :)

    Looks Good. Let us know how it goes. Little concerned with the upper rad hose though. What hood are you running for clearance?
