How Can I Make The LS Engine Even Better?
The LS series engine was designed to be the only V-8 power plant for rear wheel drive GM cars and trucks. With that in mind, it became the most popular engine for modification in Hot Rod/Kit, street and strip, and even marine and light aircraft use! The LS is the easiest engine to build power from in the General Motors line. The LS1 Engine was first introduced in 1997, with 345 HP, and 300 Ft Lbs of torque. Highly acceptable numbers for a stock engine at the time! It was used in the Vette from 97 till 2004, when GM introduced the LS6, which was a LS1 High Performance Engine. To this day, it is still an LS series engine that powers the Vette.
The number of aftermarket performance parts, and the technology in the speed shops is crazy! One such speed shop, that emphasizes power and performance, is Golen Engine Performance in Hudson, NH. USA. At Golen, they have the knowledge and experience to build you a “moderately” powerful 400 HP engine, a “silly sick” 700+ HP LS1 High Performance engine, or a raging 1200 HP LSx beast!
