Which LS short block is comparable with the LSA short block?
Didn’t think about it that way. That’s a dilemma then dang. I want a already built short block that’s more dependable and stronger than the LSA. But is there another engine that is a drop in for the V that is more dependable?5.3 truck motor. Haha no but depends what your plans are, crazy hp? I'd probably get an iron block... The dart blocks are nice... Or the gm lsx block. If you don't want to break 850 or so whp (driven hard often I'd say that's about the max I would go on an aluminum block with no sleeves, to feel comfortable.) I'd buy a nice rotating assy and use your block.
While the Crankshaft and Connecting Rods are good toReading above makes me speculate this engine can handle more than the 750 wheel I keep hearing. The liners add a great deal of strength in its own right.
Then is simply comes down to your budget Bigwilly.I only want 700whp.
“Rubber Duck” I have never really even thought about RPM. What are some factors that determine what RPM one should shoot for?Then is simply comes down to your budget Bigwilly.
I would not use an LS-3 Engine Block.
You would be going backwards on reliability.
The GM lsX Iron Block, the B-15 would be the next block
to look at, as it will easily be reliable at 700 HP and is
very cost effective.
Also, in an earlier post I offered to help you with making
a decision on your cam and heads, but you did not
answer my two questions.
You have now answered my question regarding how much
HP you require, but at what Engine RPM?
