This aint your momma’s SBC anymore.
With fully built heads, hardened pushrods, titanium springs, SRP rocker arms, an aggressive custom-grind cam, and the LS6 intake manifold I already had (w/ a ported throttle body), I should be getting well into the 400WHP range with this N/A build.

I had this opened box of SRP rocker arms floating around my warehouse in Portland, and my shop here for over 2 years. And despite all that I’ve lost, had stolen, etc. I managed to keep every single last part of these rocker arms - down to the 16 individual bolt washers….

Though they aren’t the nicest heads in the world, the Patriot Stage 2 LSX heads offer a considerable gain in just about every way, somewhere in the midst of 80hp in most routine applications..
I had picked up a Custom Grind Comp Cam, head gaskets, the Patriot heads, and SRP rocker arms for only 1200 bucks - so at the price, I figured the power gains would prove economical and fun!

I had some new GM multi-layer steel head gaskets to accompany the heads, so we scraped the block down with a razor blade and centered the new gaskets on the alignment pins..
