Heard a squeak start coming from my engine. Thought it was a pulley going bad at first. Nope. Metal shavings trashed the motor and even scored the block so deep it will need to be re-sleeved.
GM LS7 lifterswhat brand lifter?
Yep.4 inch stroke LS2 ?
The short block for my build is $6700, and that's with an iron block. The cheapest aluminum LS3 short block built with forged internals is about $8100. (the car makes about 700 hp at the wheels with the blower). The rest is for labor and various other stuff, like a custom tune and new lifters, cam, etc.ERE will sell you a bulletproof short block for a fraction of that. Your heads should be fine, just clean them out and make sure everything is within spec.
I just looked on my amazon and i bought 1 set in sept 2018. i had another set that i bought in 2016. one set went into my SBC and another went into a friends boat. Can't remember which set went where, but either way very concerning. I wonder what set a guy should go with now? morel? rhoads? comp?Oddly enough, the engine was built in 2018.
