The LSA came equipped with rectangle port (LS3-style) cylinder heads. However, the supercharged heads were Rotocast for added strength. The engines also use the same 4.065 in. bore block. In fact, the engine block casting number is the same as the LS3.
Detonation can occur if inlet air temperatures get too high and/or low-octane fuel is used. This will destroy the cast pistons in the LSA. Forged pistons are a smart upgrade. (The LS9 came with forged pistons from the factory.) Due to extremely high cylinder pressure, the heads can start to lift around 1,000 hp. At that point, you will need to basically build a whole new engine. The following upgrades will be required.
McClelland used a .007-second reaction time with a 9.924 at 149.22 mph on the 9.90 index to defeat Phil Unruh’s .026 with a breakout 9.899 at 159.29. It was a close race decided by just .003-second that sent Kyle Rizzoli and his SS/CA 1969 Camaro to the Super Stock winner’s circle in Pomona. Both Rizzoli (.010-second) and GT/IA ’92 Cutlass driver Adam Emmer (.022) hit the mark at the tree, but it was Rizzoli who went on to score his sixth national event win with a 9.579 (9.56) at 133.55 to a 10.120 (10.11), 125.89.
There are several pet trackers on the market that can help you train your hunting dog or keep an eye on any pet that goes “off-leash” from time to time. Into bicycling? Take Patches along for the ride with a pet trailer for your bike. Available in several sizes and styles, they’re a great way to enjoy biking with your furry pal—unless your dog is coordinated enough to pedal a tandem. This is an engine specification guide for General Motors’ fifth-generation L83 and L8B engines that launched in 2014.
