You guys with IS's down here in Florida need to meet Rick if you haven't already, I've never had a tech when I had my shop Auto Tuner that was good with everything like Rick is. I had one guy that was good with electrical, one guy good at tuning, one guy good at mechanical work, etc. Ricks has the talent for the whole package, fabrication, engine building, tuning, installing stand alone's, also his labor rates are very fair. This guy is a true asset to the community.
defiantly need to do so one of these days. school is kickin my butt.

The Mastertech and the software I have supposedly has that capability. I'm still learning how to use it - I'll update. I need to conquer the gremlins in Adam's car first, and then I may have more time on this.

The engine build is proceeding slowly and carefully. Crank, pistons ,and rods are in and all clearances check good. With this being my first "high power" build, I decided to torque the rod bolts using the stretch method rather than just torquing to a value. Using a stretch gauge, I found that the required torque varied by as much as 10-12 lb/ft around the spec'ed torque among the 12 bolts to reach the specified stretch. Tedious, but worth it for the peace of mind.

I stuck some modeling clay on the rod big ends and rotated the engine to check for rod/ block interference (with more than .25" longer stroke this is a concern). All good here - It sure looked like the rods were coming really close to hitting, but there's more than.125" clearance on all. I think the BC rods are a bit more compact than the GTE stockers, a good thing.

I don't have much spare time these days, but am looking forward to hanging the external stuff on the block and the whole thing looking more complete.

I found that my "bargain" used Tilton clutch pack needs a factory rebuild, so I'll have to wait for that to be done. Even so, I will have still saved a bunch of cash compared to the new price of the Tilton setup.

More to come.

Yeah Marc, I offered this motor to the Shuttle program but they said it may be a bit too much to handle.

bigkahuna, you need to come by sometime.

Nice Rick, let me know what you think on my ECU, it sounds like t my main ECU is bad. My OS Giken twin disk movement alteration kit arrived at my door today, I'm ready to go on the V160 swap now. If you think we need that ecu let me know and I'll try to locate one.

The long block is built - all the nice parts are internal now.

I'm still on hold for a clutch - My "good deal" used Tilton triple carbon clutch pack has been evaluated at the factory and has been deemed to be at "the end of its life" - not rebuildable. To the .is member that sold this to me, all I can say is shame on both of us - You for misrepresenting the condition/taking my money, and me for stupidly not checking beforehand and trusting you. You know who you are.

I have a line on a lightly used clutch pack (the same triple pack from a Porsche setup- all I will need to do is change the drive hub) and will be working on getting this in the next few days so I can get on with the project. I think with the heavier Tilton flywheel, improved low-end from the stroker, and mild cams I can get good street mileage from the Tilton.

I have a Koyo aluminum radiator and one of those trick SRT billet dual pump hangers to complete the project - I am really crazy to get on with this!

Well,

I finally got my clutch about 2 months ago and have the engine in the car. I got a bad case of "while I'm at it" and cleaned up a number of things on the car, such as eliminating all the unused dangling connectors in the stock engine harness and redoing the fuel lines along with cleaning up some of the POs' work that was not up to my standards.

I have extended the wiring for the Haltech interface to the area near the clutch master, where I will connect the PS2000 in a junction box for easy access.

Right now I'm building a 3" stainless exhaust that utilizes 2 straight-through Magnaflow muffs - And still have to install my SRT dual pump hanger in place of the modified stocker that's in there now. After those are done it will be time for engine management.

I am experimenting with LS2 truck coils (with built-in igniters) modified to mount directly onto the plugs - Looking for good results as those things are real flame throwers and have been used with good success on LSX V8 turbo engines. A custom coil cover is in the works.

A J&S Safeguard is on hand and will be installed with the Haltech.

I'm really anxious to see how my stroker combo works out - 3.4L, HKS 264s,
T72TBB, Haltech PS2000, 1000cc injectors.

Spare time is very short these days, and progress is agonizingly slow, but I'm almost there. Updates coming.

looking good Rick! I'm having a blast with my GS300 that you built, so much fun to blow the doors off C6's and GT500's with a big heavy 4 door Lexus. My "I love Corvettes they Taste Like Chicken" license plate frame hooks them every time lol...

It Lives!

Fired up the new engine https://my.is/forums/f114/engine-unde...uction-396034/ today, did some initial tuning and got the car back on its wheels. First drive and street tuning will be Thursday.

The 3.4 stroker definitely has a deeper exhaust note than the 3.0, and damn that Tilton 3-C clutch makes mega racket!

Pictures and driving impressions coming.

I probably need to do a build thread as I have redone lotso stuff since acquiring this car.
