If your a fan of big horse power you will want to tune into the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale event this month.
GM and the American Heart Association have partnered to auction off the companies production version of the LSX454R. Thats right, I said production. The LSX454R will be going into production as a crate engine. Can you say “Gents Ready Made V-8s”?
Why so special?
Other than benefiting a very important cause the all-new LSX454R crate engine officially rates at 750 plus horsepower and 680 lb.-ft. of torque.
Developed by bringing together many of the specialized GMPP LSX parts racers are already using, including the robust LSX Bowtie block. It is a high-compression, solid-roller combination that uses new LSX DR 11-degree, six-bolt aluminum heads feature raised ports that provide tremendous airflow. They are matched on the engine with an exclusive, all-new high-rise open-plenum intake manifold and a Holley 1,150-cfm Dominator carburetor.
GMPP engineers designed the LSX454R for the unique, high-rpm operations. Which makes this a durable and usable 750 plus horsepower!
