Luckily for me, the guys I bought my aluminum 5.3 from ran it on the dyno and found worn cam bearings before they shipped it to me, common problem I suppose? I don't know... I had them put a cam in and fix the bearings way cheaper than I could have done it. What heads do you have on it? I have a couple sets of heads, currently have the 799 heads on it.
My aluminum motor is a lm4 so the older trailblazer/envoy engine. It has 706 heads on it. Yea cam bearings are a common issue on these things but honestly what I've found is the cam retainer plate and rear cover gaskets are the number one killer of the cam bearings.

Update! It works!!! Still. Just having fun with this thing. Once I redo the suspension I am calling this thing complete as far as the drivetrain goes. So here's a fun 1/2 throttle burnout I did in the woods last night

Well guys ended up with another car. Massive amounts of progress spread through all the projects here. Let me see if I can get it all. Got the the full service done on my tdi, which is nice, I've put over 10k on it. Moved the gremlin over to a friend's house and we have YUGE plans for that car, as well as most of the engine stuff being done. Ummmmm did some service work on the 993, ironically I haven't driven it since August, but my mom dailys it to keep the miles on it and make sure it's okay. The Volvo is getting a intercooler swap and going straight back to the track. I'm going to see if I can crack tens with the 5.3 at low boost and full intake and exhaust. In full daily mode. Also picked up a 74 Bavaria with a friend that has a m30 swapped in 3x dcoes and a getrag 265. Don't know why we bought it but it's super funny. Pics incoming as well as videos

When are we headed to the track? Sitting on a decent spark tune and around 22-23psi, ready to smoke the slicks again, before the year is out. If we can get you, Ryan and myself out to lock in the win for the best coast that would be awesome!

In that case I'll max out the ebc and leave the crank on the track!

You said you'd do that last time and you failed, so now you gotta double up and make it happen! lol

You have my number, lets get together and get out there! Mine's pulling clean thru the rev range with the gap dropped down so it should be good for at least a 13.0 finally, if it'll hook.

Yea I had a lean issue and you could feel the power going away. Moved the fuel pumps out of the sump and the issue is resolved. So I can push it a bit harder now

You're welcome to join us Luke. Gotta figure a day out and get something coordinated before Sac closes for the season.

Usually weather dependent. Looks like this week is the last wednesday night drag for the year, but they have Saturday TnT's on the calendar thru the end of the year.

Okay I'm gonna shoot for sometime in December I have to mod the ic a bit to get it in and I'm planning on towing it there so I can be a bit more aggressive with it. Plan is to run mid to high ten in full street mode. Full size front wheels, full weight, full intake and exhaust

Funny, they don't even tech my ****, even if I haven't been out there for a year, depending on who the tech is. Didn't comment on my helmet being out of date, where PIR said I needed to rent one that was in date.
