Default FS: LS3 shortblock (13k miles)

I'm building an iron 365ci motor w/ LSA heads, so this short block is for sale. I thought about reusing my LS3 heads on the new build, so I pulled them, but ended up not going that route, so they are removed and available in a separate thread as bare heads (http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c6-p...ngs-loose.html).

I've reused the covers, oil pump/pan, misc on the new motor, so what you see is what you get. It's just the core assembled short block from my 2009 coupe with 13k miles. The stock cam is included w/ the single bolt timing gear and chain/tensioner.

I'm also selling a 416ci rotating assembly I was going to use to build this before I went with the iron block 3.622" crank motor if anyone wants to build it. I'll make a deal if you buy both. (http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c6-p...o-pistons.html)

$1800 + shipping + paypal fee

Also, here are the test results before the motor was pulled. Leakdown was done with either the piston at the top or bottom of the cylinder, not all at the top.

COLD compression test

1 - 190 psi
2 - 192 psi
3 - 195 psi
4 - 190 psi
5 - 195 psi
6 - 195 psi
7 - 190 psi
8 - 195 psi

COLD leak down test

1 - 13%
2 - 6%
3 - 9%
4 - 5%
5 - 6%
6 - 19%
7 - 6%
8 - 5%

I have a local offer on the table that will buy Monday if I can't beat his offer, so only a few days left on this.

I listed it on ebay also w/ the auction ending Friday, need to have a purchase by Friday evening or it's staying local.

bump, ebay auction ends 3pm tomorrow, so this will be sold one way or another. I have up to 12hrs before the auction end time (3pm tomorrow) to close a deal outside ebay. So if anyone wants this, it has to get done today.

I've got a pretty reasonable source for bare blocks and am also selling the parts to make it a 416ci if you're interested
