    Wet sump on GT2. Dry sump on Spec Corvette.
    To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?

          No one can build you a new LS1/6 aluminum block engine. GM doesnít make them anymore and havenít for over a year (I called turnkey today to verify they donít have access to LS1/6 blocks). LS2 and LS3 are still available.

          Iíve been searching for a used LS1/6 block for some time now as I have everything I need to build a crate LS6 (with a few longevity upgrades) minus the block. Most of what I have found has been takeouts or otherwise complete used engines. That being said, I havenít been looking very hard.

          Rob Ė Iím happy to work with you on a complete batwing LS6 if we can find a block.

          Iím guessing SpecCorvette will eventually need to allow the later gen blocks or try to find takeout engines until that becomes too cost prohibitive.

            Wouldn't we need 2 blocks if you need one too?

              Once I learned I couldn't get a new block, I went with a crate LS3 instead to move the project along. The ls6 is either going to be a backup for me or sold to someone who needs it. A Spec Corvette car seems like a good fit.

                That is what I was told. Glad you called Turnkey. I thought in my post above that maybe Turnkey was using something non-GM for the LS6 block. Oli thinks they are still building LS6's.

                I have a bat wing pan if someone needs. It has a small bit of damage to one of the bolt holes I need to weld and clean up but I just haven't done it. Unless restricted by class rules there is no reason to stick with an LS6. But leaving LS6 /LS2 world means LS3 so drysump on track is needed even without aero and DotR tires.

                  Heh, my batwing has one bolt hole knocked out too. I wonder if it's the same hole..
