I won't go so far as to say the LS engines have oiling issues... There's no way to account for all the variables that may have contributed to the failures I saw.
As to raw HP, there's always more to be had, it's always a question of money. In my case, the goal remains. Build a powerful daily driver that still gets reasonably good fuel economy, for the lowest price possible. I'm not interested in racing, so maximum power numbers are irrelevant.
It's now at the machine shop and they promised to call me next week with their findings. Hopefully I'll be able to reuse the pistons, get away with a light hone. 😎
