Interesting.... then the your tune would be nothing close to an LNF tune... it would be closer to an LS with a turbo. Tell me you changed the pistons though....

No, but the plan is probably to swap in a forged short block this winter...

Still cast (with fingers crossed at 360 hp) but planning to go with all forged internals this winter. Should have just done that originally, I know, but since there was so much being done to the car in a short period of time (engine swap, automatic to six-speed swap, plus full cage, fire suppression, chute and other safety stuff), a little bit of sticker-shock set in and I sort of tempered my power goals Now, of course, I want to go faster. But at least the car is built, teched and running, so I can focus pretty solely on engine upgrades in the coming years...

Understand the sticker shock thing. Good luck, and be safe.
