    Just a fun car. Stock 6.0 with a m20 rock crusher. If it runs 13.0 ill be happy.

    True that......but progress is being made and it will see the light of day in the near future.

    And while the RB ( really it's just a B....it's a low deck motor) is a dinosaur and generally not something a good LS motor should worry about, I feel pretty confident it will run a good bit better than 13 flat.

    Anyway, I was just busting your balls a bit. Really looking forward to seeing this when it's completed.

    In the end its just a toy so at this point my goals qre pretty low. I thought this motor was a mega block 600 ci motor.

    I'm going to say that eventually the urge to step it up will be too great and it will become something more than a slow toy/fun car. Heck, put a couple of solenoid's on it and spray it in to the 11's at least.

    Don't have a mega block deal, it's just a 512 stock block grenade. I should have went with an aftermarket block, or at the least, a stud girdle. Just have to roll with what I got and hope for the best.

    Since this is Indycarz I assume you are talking about a Nissan.

    haha, yes it would be in a certain dust collector. And that mod list is all you need to know about my car :)

    There is a build thread updated a little bit recently on here if you are curious.
