6.0 LQ9=>LS2 Swap!

Havent done much to the Genesis in a while.... but i picked up a junkyard 6.0 Lq9 out of a wrecked 04 Escalade. Tore it apart completely. Had the block machined, kept stock crank and rods but replaced all bearings and hardware.
Purchased so far:

-DSS flat top pistons w/ rings
-All new hardware and gaskets
-799 heads - valve job being done now
-Ls2 timing chain and adapter/dampner
-Ls7 lifters
-Bald Eagle cam, titanium springs and pr’s
-Comp cam trunnion kit

Trying to post pics, but having issues.

Haha my budget is killing me. I picked up the motor mid March. Every month i get a little closer. My heads are getting a valve job right now, i got a cheap set of 799s. Now just saving for the swap kit which is pricey.

To stand out from the rest will always cost .

To stand out from the rest will always cost ,87 % of men are just average or below .Taking a step up needs you to attain traction/good footing .LS option and the "umph" to do it means you are not just the average pink shirt wear soft @$$ floating along in life following the crowd (the 87%) and you have established good footing to get your build started/done ,I say bravo to you sir and let'em swing in the god damn wind .
