After a thorough clean up and inspection of our 5.3 V8, it’s time to build it back up with a big, beautiful shopping cart full of new parts.
Our work begins by installing the star of the show, the Summit Racing Stage 2 Pro LS Turbo cam.
From there, the hits just keep on coming as we install a Summit Billet Steel Double Roller Timing Set, Oil Pump, Rear Main Seal Housing, Lifter and Guide Kit, Dual Valve Spring Upgrade Kit and then seal up the bottom end with an Aluminum Oil Pan Kit.
Our final job of the day is to install our cylinder heads, which gets us one step closer to seeing if this will all fit in our Toyota Tacoma.
While I’m unsure how the 5.3 will fit, I know this lineup of high quality replacement parts and upgrades will give us an excellent foundation for making great turbocharged power!
