"5.3" with LS3 heads, 9.5:1 compression, 239/243 116+4 cam, PT8847 turbo, 1092hp/755tq at 7600 RPM . turbo kit by One-guys-garage.com, Engine built and
Dyno'd at TPIS in
The engine has a 4.8L 3.267" stroke with a 6.0L block at a 4.020 bore,
that's how I am able to fit the large valve LS3 heads on a "5.3" :) I used
Callies 6.300" SBC H beam rods, and Diamond pistons.
Spalt takes the Fairmont Challenge....5.3 Turbo LSx Fairmont Ride Along
Took my friend Mike Spalt out for a ride today. Mike has been in most of my
cars, way back to the wagon when I first got it in 2000. I think he had a
good time here. I decided to leave the mic under the hood and capture the
engine sound, I think the facial expressions speak for themselves. This is
about 14.8 psi on WG spring. Spun quite a bit today, must still have too
much air in the Mickeys.

Junkyard Turbo Swap! Chevy-Powered 1971 Datsun 240Z Autocross Thrash - Roadkill Ep. 26
What do you get when you cross a rusted 1971 Datsun 240Z with a Chevy 4.3L
V6 and a turbo from a Ford Power Stroke
Diesel? The Rotsun! During Roadkill Episode 25, Freiburger and Finnegan
revived the Rotsun expecting it to dominate in the 9-car autocross showdown
of previous Roadkill project cars. It also needed to beat a 2014 Kia Rio 5,
but failed to do so with the Rotsun shamefully breaking down before
completing a decent lap. So in this episode: revenge. After swapping in the
mismatched turbo and making nearly 400
rear-wheel horsepower, the guys head to
the autocross at the Goodguys 5th Spring Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona
and mingle with fans on their way to a rematch with that dastardly Kia.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
