A few years back at the SEMA show the world got its first up close and personal look at the amazing V12 LS engine. . The first version of the engine was made by joining up a couple of factory blocks and heads. That lead to the concept being proved out and the project advancing to the next logical step of making a one piece block and some dedicate heads. Well that is exactly what you are going to see when you look at this video, how that is done.
The video is interesting because it talks about some of the goals that the makers of the engine have. Firstly they are looking to blow past the 1,000hp mark naturally aspirated, they are creating some LS7 style cylinder heads now to achieve that goal. After that? Well after the boost will come into play and once the boost shows up, this thing is really going to show how much gusto it can make and if the thing is able to hang into the boost and RPM we doubt that 2,000hp is out of the question.
It may look freaking strange but damn if the idea hasn’t proven itself and once you see the video you’ll understand the fact that these guys are SERIOUS about this deal and are not just sawing engines up and JB welding them together in their basement.
Check out the video below and get a more in-depth look at exactly how these things are made and what you can expect in the evolution of a freaky cool engine program!
