                The only thing I hear out of normal noises is what sounds like a belt tensioner squeaking. The LS engines all have some valve train noise and that is normal. You also have forged pistons which when the engine is cold will make more noise than when the engine is fully warmed up.

                  Thank you Tim for that ...i was worried that the rods were knocking or i needed lifters ...the car is crazy fast i have had all big blocks all my life and i have had lot of them but this stroker motor will run away from them every day....just wondering were you able to here enough of the engine with me speaking or do you need to here a separate video?/ ...it does get a little quiter when it warms up ....anything that i should be doing for it with 75k miles on her???

                    Nothing specifically with that kind of mileage. If you send me the VIN I can look up your build and see exactly what is in the engine. PM it to me please.

                        It looks like our standard LS1 package that we do on the C5. Same as what is listed here http://www.lingenfelter.com/engine-p...ls1-ls6-475-hp

                        Plus the transmission HD rebuild.
