Z06 Redline Motorsport Build
I’m posting my build which I’m extremely happy with and all that went in to it from Redline Motorsports restoring the cars heartbeat. The car was dropped off via car carrier there because the engine had catastrophic internal failure from a different shop’s questionable work where all my troubles began with a damaged crank and 2 pistons.

I think the only thing left on the engine that is GM is the oil pump and rocker arms/covers, and the Block that was sent to the machine shop along with the heads getting them right / B&B’d,. The engine was removed, totally disassembled and every inch of it gone over and repaired, but I think mostly replaced would be more accurate. I went with basically a balanced Manley Forged rotating assy, crank too at 11.5:1 compression, custom grind camshaft from Redline Motorsports, Trick Flow Heads, Kooks Headers, MSD Intake Manifold, New oil pump and cooler, New Clutch, Flywheel etc. lubricated with Gibbs Driven Synthetic Oil.

The whole rebuilt engine assy was re-installed, tuned and tested and wow what a difference in the repair / quality. The engine purrs smooth as can be up front and head to the rear and one angry beast. She places down a respectable 579 rwhp all NA from the rebuilt 427 and the pulls 1-4th gear are freaking awesome. At 1500 rpm in 6th gear on the highway it nice and smooth. Looking in the engine compartment you would never know it had been removed and I’m particular about things so yes they passed the test. When she was backed out of the trailer at my cul-de-sac all the neighbors were out there drooling and I would be too but I already did that when I visited Redline Motorsports shop before the car was done. By the way that tour of the shop tells you how they operate (I was there 2 hours) and a good bunch of people there as well. :cheers:

Redline is one of the best shops I have come across. Proud to deal w/ Howard's team. They do insane work and really know their stuff. They were meticulous when the did my heads and cam work. Good luck, your in the right place.
