    yeah first coolant was getting into the spark plug hole. Now, it may have spun a rod bearing. I'm currently rebuilding it and also mating a 5 speed and turbo.

    You know with all the threads/posts on here about LS1 swaps, superchargers, etc., I would bet you could make GOOD money if you could get a turbo kit together before Alpine gets their *** in gear.

    Btw, are you doing this as a single or dual turbo?

    Single Turbo.
    I also have plans for a better superchager kit. I will be based on Rotrex supercharger. Less parasitic loss with good boost response (almost like a turbo), simple to install (no need to take the plenum out). No more old and heavy roots type supercharger. I just need a volunteer.
