Sweet build man ! Your probably the only other person on here with a fabtec 8" lift, nice to finally meet you. Ha ha. What size tires are you running they look huge ? My guess 38 geolanders.

I'm running 37 Toyo muds, and sticking with them till they wear out I may go to 36's after that. I do love my tires though.

Well I was told when I bought my engine it was a LS6 but after more research I found that it was a LS1. But if you think about it a LS6 is just a LS1 with a better cam and some fancy valves and thats only on the exhaust valves. I'm running a LS1 intake and Im installing a cam that is better than a LS6 cam anyway and having some head work done I dont want to say what till it is done. I found a shop that say they Specialize in LS engines so we will see what happens. I will have it dynoed when I'm done I'm sure, just to get it tuned correctly and to see how well it does.

If you were wondering if the intake would fit after machining the heads it will, it will not be enough to make a difference in that regard.

actually the difference in the LS6 vs the LS1 are the following..

the intake is difference depending on the yr
the heads are different the LS6 use a 243 casting and have longer valves which are sodium filled, the combustion chamber is smaller netting higher cr
the ls6 is 10.6 vs the ls1 being 10.1
the block has a minor difference to it [casting] some of the later yr fbodys had gotten a Ls6 block but you would need to run numbers to see what block you have

the better intake is the GMT800 intake, there is plenty of dyno sheets and data that show the GMT800 intake outflows and performs and makes more power up top...Now if you find a GMT900 intake that is 90mm it will out perform all others.

This is straight from Wikipedia: The LS6 is a higher-output version of GM's LS1 engine and retains the same capacity. The initial 2001 LS6 produced 385 bhp (287 kW) and 385 lbf·ft (522 N·m), but the engine was modified for 2002 through 2004 to produce 405 bhp (302 kW) and 400 lbf·ft (540 N·m) of torque. The LS6 was originally only used in the high-performance C5 Corvette Z06 model, with the Cadillac CTS V-Series getting the 400 bhp (300 kW) engine later. The V-Series used the LS6 for two years before being replaced by the LS2 in 2006. For 2006, the Z06 replaced the LS6 with the new LS7. The LS6 shares its basic block architecture with the GM LS1 engine, but other changes were made to the design such as windows cast into the block between cylinders, improved main web strength and bay to bay breathing, an intake manifold and MAF-sensor with higher flow, a camshaft with higher lift and more duration, a higher compression ratio of 10.5:1, sodium filled valves, and a revised oiling system better suited to high lateral acceleration.[3] LS6 intake manifolds were also used on all 2001–2002 LS1 engines. The casting number, located on the top rear edge of the block, is 12561168. Applications:

Your #'s are a little off and you forgot about the cam and I really dont think the valves are longer why would they even need to be longer? And only the exhaust valves are filled with sodium and if anyone out there thinks that those valves are making more power you can keep on thinking that and maybe they do a very small amount but one of the main reasons GM is using them is for engine harmonics to keep vibration and noise down. I know this only because I have been to GM training classes on engine building. They use sodium filled valves in even the Chevy Cruise and Malibu.

I would like to involve everyone, most times I know exactly what I'm going to do and no one can sway me but this time everyone can help.

I can get my hands on a LS3 engine with a hole in the block like mine and now that my bore will be 4.00 I can use the LS3 heads, intake, and injectors. Its supposed to flow like mad. So give me a thumbs up icon if that sounds like a good idea or thubs down if not. Its only $600.00 and then I will not have to pay for head work. Its in your hands now.

the reason for longer valves is the LS6cam uses a smaller base circle.
if you think im wrong on the flowing of the intake do a search on LS1tech or PT.net. one of the reasons its not on a car is cause of the cowl on the fbodys and the low clearance of the vettes hood. Dyno testing of the two intakes back to back dont lie...Also the MAF that is on the LS6 vette is same maf that is on a truck...both are 85mm

no need to start a pissing war, was trying to help you out

also by doing many logs of motor with the LS6 intake it starts to pull vacuum early in the rpms as it drops KPA fast when reving above 6k, the GMT800 intake holds better and the GMT900 intake keeps KPA up when all used on the same motor for testing.

Got my engine back from the machine shop. It was not bored out to 4.00 almost but not quite so I cannot use the LS3 heads and intake, so there goes deams of 500hp +. Here are some pictures of all the parts I have so far I have all the parts to put the bottom end together, except the cam. So I will be doing that soon. Pictures to follow.
