Default HPR is building my 468ci LS for my 08 ZO6!!!

HPR with be building my 468ci LS motor using a LS7 block. Wccw Brodix heads with all upgrades and G1pro is building me a custom billet intake custom designed for my set up. Long runners. The motor will be around 12.8-13 comp since I will be running E85. Waiting for the cam specs but Iím sure theyíre going to be 260s and 670-700 lift. We are staying hydraulic but I am making sure I am doing every upgrade valvetrain option available cutting no cost on the valvetrain. My headers are ARH 2inch with off road Xpipe. My goals are 680-700rwhp. What does everyone think about the set up and how much power should I expect. My H/C/I ls7 12.1 comp makes 625rwhp so I know I should make a lot more power than that. Thank you for anyoneís feedback. They say the motor should be ready in about two months

I hate to discourage you but when your getting that high up there in the horsepower on these deals it takes A LOT to move the needle north! I am in the same boat and almost the exact same build as you and I will be happy to see 750 at the crank. I'm not holding my breath tbh. I will be dynoing in the next few days so we shall soon find out

I have seen a couple of their set upís and they all seem to make about that kind of power. I have seen 680,701 and 725rwhp on a couple of their builds

I will be comparing a Mamo ported Fast, a Mamo ported MSD, and a prototype of the new Fast tunnel ram on the dyno. Please don't even ask how on the latter intake

FAST Tunnel Ram FTW! If you have 7200+ RPM Stability.
Is this the one with changeable runners?
How close are you to testing?
Standard FAST will be in 3rd place
Looking forward to results..

Yes that's the one. I have Pac 1207x springs with the morel link bar lifters and CHE upgraded stock rockers for now. I have actually been running pretty close to the same setup for awhile now only with WCCH stage II heads. My Darton lined LS7 block finally gave up the ghost after over 10 years so it was time for some updates

Eric thinks we should see around 700. We were comparing my build to yours and I think Iím one point more compression Iíll be running straight e85 as well as different heads and we found someone that will make me a custom billet intake with long runners like the MSD. I bet if you had a Mamo ported MSD it would probably open yours up at least 680 I would think

ya we upped my compression to 12.5:1 and its running straight E85 as well. Im interested to see what difference the Brodix heads and Intake will make ive been kicking around the idea of getting those heads as well. 700 has been a goal of mine so if you make it I know what I need to get!

Agreed...I thought of his intakes first for your build versus a composite. He's building some real cool stuff.
