If you are running stock pistons at 700 rwhp and only pump gas 93 octane I wouldn't be surprised if it blows up on the street. Do you have meth injection to get the octane up?

I've seen stock non-boosted LS7s blow up at the road course from oil starvation and some from detonation. Road course laps are usually the hardest form of driving for any cars setup.

I was looking at putting meth on her but have not yet. This will help to cool the piston some, correct?

Meth is typically used for raising the octane and cooling the incoming air for a denser mixture. Not for cooling the coolant temps.

Road course guys usually need big radiator, big fans, and air tight duct work to run cool enough on track days. Most of the serious guys stay N/A for steady road course racing.

One of the touted benefits to running some water in the mix is lowering cylinder / piston temps yes. I blew up my NA LS6 on the track, cracked piston. I think from all the heat, the piston ring gap closed up and cracked off a chunk of piston (my theory anyways). I had no knock, just too much heat, I think some water would have helped a lot in my case. Engine cooling is a whole separate thing and all posted info is true.... heat is going to be bad with the engine making a lot more power and potentially an intercooler blocking radiator flow, etc etc. Adding significant power only makes cooling that much more difficult unfortunately.

I have twin radiators. prior to the SC it ran so cool my heat wouldn't warm under normal conditions. I wouldn't hit 200 degrees on track. Is there a way to cool it now ?

One in front of the other. Increases the cooling area for your system. Works quite well.

Thinking of swapping in an ls2 but now I'm thinking my ls1 brackets won't work. 6.0 iron block, 317 heads, ls6 intake, ls1 tb, all accessories from ls1.

Just need to bring the LS1 water pump over to work on the LS2. That way your C5 bracket still works with the C5 water pump.
