    The nicks in the sleeve aren't too bad, when it let loose the engine was less than 500 RPM. I think I'll save it and fix it, maybe drop it in my truck, lol

    Gotta take us through the process with you. I'm curious how you'll make out with it.

    I think it can be saved, but time is an issue. I'm leaning towards buying a LS3 block and stuffing it with good stuff...

    I found a new LS3 block, and am leaning towards the following for the bottom end

    I have to tell the site I have an Escalade in case anyone wondered. The site doesn't believe there is a 6.2 Tahoe, hahaha

    you planning on keeping it forever?

    Also you reminded me I still have the first crankshaft that the thrust bearing ate up. I don't think they wanted to clean it up and expect it to perform as a new one. Going to run it by my local guy and see if he thinks it can be saved for something with a few less hp

    With as rare as it it, I'm planning on keeping it forever. It is also hard to find a vehicle that just...fits... If that makes sense. I always to a double take when I park it, if I wake up in the middle of the night, I look outside to make sure it's ok, haha. I love my hoe...
