I AM WONDERING IF ANYONE HAS RUN THE LS ENGINES WITHOUT WATER, FOR HOW LONG, AND WHAT HAPPENED AT THE END? I HEAR THAT THE BOTTOM END HAS ISSUES WITH OILING AT HIGH TEMPS AND WONDERING HOW THE RODS AND CRANK HOLD UP AFTER RUNNING WITHOUT ANY COOLING FOR SAY, 25 MINUTES?

That's what happens when you try to run a junkyard engine that already has a 175,000 miles on it or an inexperienced builder put it together. These engines are alot more detailed that a conventional SBC, you just have to be very careful and get everything just right on them, they are great engines, how many SBC engines out there have 200,000 miles on them and have .002 wear in them block.

More progress today, looks like weather permitting we should have the floor poured by Wed, they have to finish the re bar and cut through the existing wall to match up the floor from old to new. Dyno pit turned out perfect.
nice looking machine work on that LS.....oil squirter's look great and I'm betting they will preform even better than they look......shop seems to be coming a long very well .....don't forget the floor tie downs for fixing per ran derby cars..LOL
