5.3 for High 10 Second Nitrous Truck

Postby flyer123 » Thu Dec 01, 2016 5:21 pm

Hey guys,


I am looking to build a mill to get my s10 into a high ten second pass. I am envisioning selling my sbc, and swapping in a carbed LS with 150 shot on it. I would love to go with a decent size cam, gasket match port job. headers, full exhaust, 3500 stall and 150 shot on top of it. My truck weights 2800 without me in it, and 3000 with me in it. I figure this would get me into the mid-low 11s. I am trying to figure how anyone has done with a 5.3 and some spray. I am also looking for a 6.0 block if i can find one decent.


I have seen people brag about 10 second passes on 5.3s, has anyone else seen it done on the bottle?

if you have a 5.3 use it but I would look for a 6.0 (just a little more torque) to run a high ten you will need around 460hp.
not to hard to do with a LS,

thanks for the reply. I am thinking about seeing if i cant find an lq4 somewhere and clean it up a bit. Probably going to gap the spring a little for the nitrous, ect. do a mild rebuild on it.
