Thanks man.

This LS will spin high RPM like the VQ. Life will start off at 7,500rpm the first year. The next year I'm going to change the TQ converter out to a billet drum and let it eat at 9,000rpm. That's why I'm going through everything and getting all the good parts. The engine note should be glorious at top end, or atleast that's what I hope.

But you know... Keeping it over built and not turning it up kinda has a nice ring to it right now. This **** is expensive. I'm not sure how others do monster builds.

How they do monster builds?
He sold the kids, the wife is out turning tricks, 3rd mortgage in the house, 10 credit cards are maxed out, one meal a day and that's either pork and beans or cheese mac and hot dogs, and he is working 3 jobs. Or he's a trust fund baby.

Popped in a billet oil diverter, put the oil pick up in(forgot to add it yesterday), used some RTV on the front and rear joints where the front/rear covers meet the oil pan. I put in ARP head studs but they were for a gen3 block... I have a gen4 so they had to be removed. Moved onto head assembly and found that the machine shop didn't cut all the valves properly. I guess I'm on hold for a few days now. It is what it is.

Found a good 7min video that pretty much shows all the steps I'm doing in a fluid motion.
