Lets see what this heat maker can do-JRSC build

So I am planning on gathering parts and start building this winter. Been working on a couple things so far.

Current setup:
M45
6.5" crank pulley
2.6" blower pulley
ZX2 cams
COP
SVT airbox
OBX header/catback
FC cam gears
E85



List of plans:
Head milled and mildly ported
Larger valves
Replace the M45 with a mildly ported M62
Smaller sc pulley (offset is different for the GM M62, undecided on size)
Aluminum flywheel and clutch (undecided on clutch)
SVT rods (undecided on pistons)
W/M or N2O (DD, but will rarely see high boost)
Tube arms (built by me)
Traction bars (built by me)


Now this is what I have so far

Brand new aluminum flywheel


SVT rods and pistons with new rings and bearings installed


And an M62 off a 95 Riviera


The blower is getting stripped down and cut up to fit the JRSC throttle body plate. Will be replacing the bearings, coupling, and seals.

Down to the rotor bearings. Can't cut anymore off.


I can save about .5" by keeping the GM pulley because of the offset.


The case is still 1.75" longer than my M45. I need things to match up for the bypass valve you can see here.



I should be able to move the assembly toward the belt the other .25" or so. There is plenty of mounting surface on the manifold.

Also going to be swapping in 4.06 gears, and hopefully a custom L/S diff.

Been eyeing these too

I hope by custom L/S diff you don't mean that phantom grip.

Hell no. That wouldn't be custom. I am planning on replacing the whole diff.
