had a 2007 chevy truck with a 6.0 come in to our shop with 100k on it due to no oil(their ex stabbed a hole in the oil filter)...... bottom end is tight and almost locked up. so we put another 6 liter in it as requested and now we have the old motor.

specs say it 366 cubic inches and has alum 71cc heads on it and i see you can get a carb intake and msd setup for it and rumor is you can twist these high up into the rpm's.......... so my question is.....is it worth doing it?

anyone build one and what kind of numbers?

There's one in Hattisburg Ms. in a tube chassis car, the the guy said it's a bone stock $400.00 junk yard with a 1050 carb and solid roller cam, it runs high 5's in the 1/8. there's one here in La. that's in a 2002 Camero that the guy drives on the street (sometimes) but still has the injection, that runs in the 10's 1/4 and 6's in the 1/8 on Hoosier street slicks, he just had a friend of mine go thru the motor, change the cam, and put a PG behind it. It's one crispy critter, i suspect it will run some low 6's the next time it goes to the track. If i had the money i would build one, since i already have a 1998 Sonoma setup for the LS1 and 460L trans.

A couple yrs. ago one of the Chevy Mag's built a 403" with aftermarket heads and it made 600 plus Hp, and 800 HP witha 200 shot.

The tube car is running i think 4.88" with 14X32's, the 2002 Camero is running 4.10's with 10.5X29's i think. I know before he rebuilt it it was almost stock and ran mid 11's in the qtr. That was with a 4L60 trans and 3 someting gears. my friend used to own the car about 3 yrs. ago. The same person who owns the 66 Biscane. when he sold it it had run mid 12's at Twin Cities. The new owner has spent a lot of money on suspension and put tublar A/Arm and coil overs, and now PG, plus an after market hydaulic cam, but still stock heas. I saw the engine on hte engine stand and it appeared totally stock. But installed in the car it sounded bad ass. The most different thing about it, that he can drive it on the street and too the track.

That is the funniest thing I've see all day. Sorry, but it just doesn't look right. lol
The 6.0 are tough. A lot of guys use them in rock crawlers because they can run the chitte out of and they hold up ( stock hp )and don't have any problems with running hot.

Thanks for the link Vega. We're on the same page looks like. I'll keep you posted on any info I can find.

One guy we race with had a 6.0 in his foxbody.Stock bottom end,cam swap,rings gapped,computer tuned and (i'm pretty sure) 3.55 gears. Got 20+ mpg on the highway and consistently ran mid 5's with a single turbo.

I need to call him and pick his brain :idea:

This is very true. But seeing your hotrod languishing in the garage for months on end is agonizing :evil:

there is a guy running at our track running a late 80's early 90's camaro with a 6.0 motor with a turbo and some nitrous ..... running in the 7's in the 1/4!

i love going as fast as i can but wont ever run nitrous but been reading up on this whole new world of the turbo and its very interesting :D

i seen a pro mod 57 chevy and it looked nasty as hell till he fired it up and it was quiet :shock: he had turbos and mufflers and crap on it and it just didnt fit right if you know what i mean.... :D cause to me they are suppose to be loud and nasty..... sounding :D :D :D :D
