    BBF and BBC have the same bore spacing making those adapters kind of simple. Wonder the bore spacing on the LS?

    BBC is about an inch and a half wider spacing than the LS . It would have to be a thicker chunk of metal to make up the extra width , but I have plenty of room because the LS is much smaller than the BBC . I am sure it can be done , just haven't found anyone who has them .

    I have been talking to your dad about it , and he said he didn't know of anyone making anything yet . Just really don't want to have to order the logs from Australia . That is the only decent ones I have seen so far , and they are fairly expensive . Thanks for the tip , I will give them a call .

    Hold on a second, take it from someone who's been there done that. I know for a fact the closest you'll get with port spacing is a SBF.
    So, options?
    Marine power makes a center-riser don't know the price though.
    Or you can make your own out of a SBF sprint car header kit with a LS flange for about $140 from summit or jegs.Go ultra cheap and spray paint em too!







    This is what a 5.3 carbed motor sounds like with no baffles only water injection
