Sharp looking car but I just dont drive it enough and needs to go to a good home. I just finished proper break in of a fresh built LS2 that came in the car. It was only going to be a pleasure cruiser that I wanted to put headers on that turned into a complete build from intake to torque tube. Asking $21k which I feel is a steal. I have receipts in case I forgot some stuff which I will. Car has bench tune from Texas Speed and Performance estimated between 480 and 500 whp. Conservative tune as it was bench flash. I do have 57 lb FAST injectors that will go with the car that are not installed. From what TSP told me the car with a FAST or MSD Intake manifold with those bigger injectors installed and retune the car should be 550 whp or more.

complete tear down
engine balanced to within 1/2 gram at race builder machine shop
forged pistons and rods
cylinders barely touched at .005 over
TSP Stage 2.5 heads slight mill and all new valve train
*trunnion upgrade in rocker arms
Torquer V4 cam
new timing set
all new ARP hardware throughout entire engine bay
TSP 1 7/8 inch headers ceramic coated and wrapped, coated x pipe to MBRP axle back
New McLeod RST twin disc clutch with new matching McLeod flywheel
new bearings and bushings in torque tube
Vararam Snake charmer intake
Granatelli 100 mm MAF
Granatelli Coil packs
MSD 8 MM plug wires
new radiator
new lower brace
QA1 rear coil overs
Wide body kit with fresher paint
ZR1 side skirts
Z06 front bumper and lip

*items I forgot on original post:
new high flow high pressure oil pump
new power bond harmonic balancer with ARP crank bolt
LS7 head gasket with ARP head studs
Hinson Motor mounts
Hinson Transmission mounts
new swaybar end links both front and back (not installed yet)
new rear swaybar bushings (poly)

I have all stock parts that will go with the sale including a hurricane intake that was on the car when purchased.

sharp looking ride and fun to drive
Make me an offer so I can go on to the next build with a happy wife ha ha

added some more info to the post. I put so much into the build it takes me time to think and go thru receipts to see what all is done.

Why no dyno or street tune?

I went with the bench tune so I could get out and drive it and do a proper break in of the engine and clutch. I planned on waiting for the dyno tune after I put a FAST intake on it with the injectors I picked up from a forum member but unfortunately I ordered the intake from Marylandspeed so of course it never showed up and I had to dispute it with my credit card company. By that time an early winter hit us here in NY and put it in storage early. The itch is killing me so I am going to an awd sports car so I can run it year round.

Hey there. Kinda odd question here. But i see you list a Torquer V4 Cam in the specs. Whats your thoughts on it. How much performance does it add and at what cost to general driveability???

I love the Torquer V4 cam!! I did heads, cam, headers, etc. all at once with the full build so I can't tell you what that did by itself. The drive-ability is great with the tune I have so I can putt around town at 1600 rpms but stomp on it with great throttle response with tons of mid range and up power. I have stiff Hinson Motorsports motor mounts so at redlights it has a bit of lope at idle but being fuel injection its not crazy overlap like the old hotrods can get away with. I did have to go to a dual spring for valves due to the higher lift though. Hope that helps. Texas Speed was great to deal with and so far their products seem top notch.
