We have countless hours of research and development in the engines we offer and they are built to be bulletproof under extreme conditions such as drag or mile racing. We also take into consideration that many of our customers are not building full blown racecars and will often drive their cars under street conditions; final application is paramount. The LM354L can be finished with either a supercharger or a turbocharger setup and has put down impressive numbers in both configurations. This is the go to choice for a GT500 if you are looking to actually put down 1000+HP numbers. Customer reports have shown this long block has made 1200-1400 HP with various configurations
Standard configuration is undressed without timing or valve covers. If you would like to receive new covers or reuse your old ones please contact us.
