    For those wondering thats a close ratio road race gforce with straight cut gears and dog rings, .90 final. I purchased it for $800 with a broken main shaft but came with another 26t hardened main shaft and is currently being put together by my buddy.

    I'm loving the all black theme on that 347! Sounds like you got a good deal on the gforce trans, pretty neat.

    Thought you was installing an LS-juan, or LS-tree :shrug:

    BTW, I love the black finish on that engine :drool: Looks way better than the polished/chrome look of the late 90's early 00's

    Thanks guys

    Nate- I HATE chrome, polished, really anything shiney, so I did all the powdercoating myself cause im cheap and poor. Its a really different black wrinkle finish, actually and imperfect cracked look instead of a regular texture kind of finish

    Jeff- IIRC its pretty much your exact same engine minus a few things. Shooting for about 400-450rwhp. Still need to have my 1 7/8" headers made.

    Actually the goal was an ls7 with a valve change, porting and a cam. But i needed to sell this engine, it was a cousin of a friend and he wanted $4500 for it with 20k, full car harness and computer. Sucks cause that would have been a 600rwhp beast at least.

    Oh well, this engine looks good, lets hope it runs decent.

    Anyways, cool pics Crane can't wait to see the finished product.

    Thanks, me too, we'll see what becomes in the next year. Already have our room booked for vegas again so all funds are going towards that. This thing can keep sitting.

    There pretty different, different stroke, bore, rod length, cylinder head, intake, cam... lol

    Id guess that motor makes from 380 to 410 at the tire. How high you plan on spinning it to?

    For some reason i thought it was pretty similar other then the heads. Been gone a while, oh well. Engine should spin to 7000. The heads have been gone through extensively so im hoping for a minimum of 400 and onward. My builder said when he was done with them they were around a 205 runner for how much he worked the runners and pockets. 160# springs installed, Ti hardware blah blah. Ed was positive it would make at least 410 but wanted to be stingy with his estimations. We'll see, whatever it makes will be plenty for the road course.

    So here are the things I need to get it running
    Re-assemble g-force
    LMC clutch
    1 7/8 Headers
    Thickest radiator possible
    Electric water pump
    MSD dizzy
    Electric fan of some sort
    80mm throttle body
    90mm lmaf
    These are just the bare minimum to get the car running, I still need a pair of sprint 5's and an mm roll bar before I push the car any

    So if y'all have any of that shoot me a PM about it.

    These were requested, these heads had to be extensivly saved, dont buy heads unless you have them in your hands to look over. These are the monster 1262R gaskets, 200cc according to my builder now, im just glad he saved them.
