Well we know that the 383 in my car had its issues so I was going to put in that LS1 in but dad needed something for his car so i sold that to him and decided to change my plan a bit I'm going to buy cheap motors and spray the crank out of them I bought a 4.8L and Im going to throw a carb intake and MSD box on it plumb in my fogger and have fun..... hell why spend real money on a motor when you can spend $200 and have fun. I may throw in a cam and some heads for fun you can buy one of these for $200 and a 6.0 is about a grand..........





some parts to make it work

now were talkin! thats how ya have fun, and definitely says 4.8 on the back of the block. there isnt alot of info on the 4.8 out there since 5.3's are less than $100 more at the junk yard but it is a well known fact the 5.3 can take more boost/nitrous since its cylinder walls are thicker. so im guessin the 4.8 has the thickest cylinder walls? if so you should have no problem with a properly tuned 200 shot or more.

I can take a picture of some junkyard dog & say it's my next project too. Doesn't make it the truth though.

erl super deck II but it costs 15k by the time the motor is done. chevy high performance had an article about it a year or so ago/ive got the mag around here somewhere. that'd be cool 'n all but no where near what 25 lbs of boost on that 4.8 would be. the easiest thing to do is a 5.7 rotating assy and bore your block for displacement.
