SUBSCRIBE. (I'm a little late in the game). Just went through the previous 9 pages of this thread. This build is bad ass. Nice work and craftsmanship. Very well thought out rig. Keep posting pics.

so i blew the front output cap on the Atlas racing.

The broken cap took out the gear set and 2k later i have the atlas rebuilt.

I decided that the caps were cheep and i couldn't afford a rebuild again. I designed up this



made a stack of them



sent en out for anodizing then milled in our logo



here they are installed



hopefully the next break will be an output shaft and not be a $2,000 repair.

update time.

I have motor issues, thinking it might be an injector but not sure. I ended up ordering a new cam shaft from Brian Tooley. Stage 4 truck cam. They claim they have dyno results showing 70+HP out of this cam with their springs. we shall see.....

also on the hunt for some bigger injectors. looking for the 8.1L marine ones.

more updates to come.

Will marine ones be enough? If I remember right they are 42lbs, I would throw some 60's in

I think LS3 injectors are 42lbs as well and are available really really cheap from the Vette community .. ??

Height isnt an issue either, you can run tiny adapters (see below)
