New Vette Doctors Warhawk LS7X Engine for my 8sec Vette-Sold
Over the past few months The Vette Doctors and I have been working on
updates to my 8 sec Street Beast. At the end of last season we decided that
we were going to work on a few weak links in the LSx combination and go
through the car for this season.
At the same time The Vette Doctors also went through an incredible
transformation as they moved to a new shop with more then double the Sq
footage and lifts! If you have not seen it, it is outstanding!! Being the
loyal customer I am of over 10 years, I told them to get that settle and
then let's focus on my car. Unfortunately, that gave Carmen, Dennis and I
more time to dream up changes !!
We began by upgrading the ignition system to a distributor based system
with a digital control box, upgrading the DFI software, adding a RacePak
(thanks turboPeople for your help in
spec'ing this out) and changing the intake system to a GM Aluminum Intake.
As we plotted this all out we starting looking at the block and heads and
considered our options. My LS2 block had almost 200 runs on it and we
needed to have it re-honed. After weighing all the pros and cons we decided
economically it made sense to upgrade the block. We considered going to the
LSX block but GM had a hold on the product and it was not available plus
the extra 100 pounds did not make sense.
Given that we wanted the additional clamping power of the extra head bolts
without the extra wt., we considered an after market block. After checking
with GM on the availability of the Aluminum LSX and hearing it was still
way off in the future we considered the Warhawk. With help from Wade
Stevens and World products we went with the Warhawk. I swapped out my ETP
LS7 heads for ETP Warhawk LS7 heads and away we went.
Freddie Brown upgraded my transmission and Neil Chance freshened up my
converter as well. Joey has done an incredible job with the install, wiring
and plumbing of the new system we are going to and Denny as always has done
an incredibly meticulous job with the new Warhawk. I watched as he built it
with his own 2 hands spec'ing out the bearings, rings, caps, pistons etc!
As you can see we have put a lot of time, money and sweat into this car
this year and we do not want to rush it. I have also been really swamped at
work as you could tell since this is the first I am even posting of this.
Our plans are to take it to a track rental in the next few weeks and get
her dialed back in!
