Let’s build an engine.

So due to what we found with the cam and bearings we made a decision to rebuild the engine. We could have found another used engine but it was unknown it would be any better than what we had.

By rebuilding we knew it would be good for many many years to come. This was a pretty basic rebuild with a cam and head swap. I cannot remember what cam went in the engine but it had a set of fresh LS6 heads.

This was the first LS I rebuilt. I had done many cam swaps and other engine builds but it was the first full LS rebuild we did in house.
