And for the record, one of my volvos is sbc equipped too...but for me to actually do anything with it other than put put around I'd have to do so much work it really ceases to be anything other than a shell just as yours is.

anyway, I'll be watchin, I love this car.
might as well tell the guy that shoves an aluminum LS6 into his '69 Camero that it is no longer is a Camero since that motor was never installed or intended for such an old car

I like seeing what Dug has done, glad it is his money and not mine since I'd do things differently

i disagree about safely running 800rwhp on a stock crank with an aluminum block.. what kind of rods and pistons are you running?

I will be running Lunati equipment. Do some research about the stock crank and stock block. U will be surprised on how much they can handle. Plus my tuning sponsor sees boosted LS1's all day so I'm going with his word.

Centrifugally charged LS1 blocks make 700-1200 all the time. Pick up a Hot Rod Magazine.

LS1's are naturally aspirated in stock format on all GM vehicles. This was definately an "addition".

Well the LS1 can only produce about 600rwhp on a stock long block... anything over that is death.

Built LSX motors(Internals) can produce more a lot than that with no issues. 1200hp with a Lunati Rotating assembly is no problemo.

I think alot of people have mixed feelings about boost / lots of hp and aluminum blocks. We had a all aluminum blown big block that produced 1800 hp before the nitrous. But at the same time there are some aluminum heads that have lots of strength issues.

I think with a good tune it should be able to handle it.

My favourite volvo of all time. Together with the blue LS1 powered 745 from someone on this board. Damn the stupid rules in the Netherlands that prohibit me from putting a BMW M70 V12 in my car :(
