The new LS1 spun a bearing…. another new block….
New LS1 with Forged pistons & rods & it will be right once & for all.
It just has to be right!
New motor vs. original motor discussion…………..
Some feel this is an issue. You can look at it a number of different ways.
Over 25% of all the 550 GMMG’s do not have the orignal GM Engine they were born with.
GMMG removed the original factory motor & installed C5R 427’s & 454 engines in over 125 cars.
Mike Carnahan (now with Vengeance Racing) & Ron Moen upgraded & built most of the GMMG motors & engine upgrades for GMMG.
Mike did the final work, test, tune & dyno work on HRE #2000. He kept the engine just like GMMG would have done it.
I look at this as a huge plus………… A GMMG with 39k total miles & over $20k in a new Mike Carnahan motor.
HRE #2000 is spot on & the best running GMMG I’ve owned.

Car was shipped to Mike Carnahan @ Vengeance because Parks couldn’t figure out why it wouldn’t run.
The crank position sensor was finger tight instead of 22 foot pounds & the engine wouldn’t run.
Mike put 50 miles on – cut the oil filter apart – looked good.
He drove it more, reprogramed & Dyno’d the motor – cut oil filter apart again – OK
Mike said Thompson Motorsports built a great motor & eveything checks out 100%.
Finally after 3 motors & 16 months without the car I have some good news.
POINT – MIKE CARNAHAN IS THE ONLY PERSON I WILL EVER LET WORK ON MY GMMG MOTORS.
He knows the setup & tune becasue he built the GMMG motors originally.
