In LS World, it doesn't get any better than this. Are you thinking about a land speed record? Massive boost? Read on!
There can be tremendous property differences aluminum alloys. For example, 6061 aluminum alloy contains Scandium to achieve incredible strength. What is this Scandium? It is a metallic element that at one time was only mined in the Soviet Union. Hence, their answer to our titanium F-14 Tomcat (Top Gun) was their Scandium alloy MIG-29 Fulcrum fighter.
Dart uses 6061 aerospace grade billet aluminum to produce these incredible pieces of automotive engineering. The combination of Dart's LS Next design and this amazing alloy yields the best LS block that money can buy. Dart has seen where a rotating assembly blew apart at high rpm but only dented the block. Repaired instead of replaced. Pretty easy to see why the Soviets liked these alloys for their fighter planes.
Since the block is being machined, not cast, there is tremendous design latitude to get you exactly the features that you want, for example:
- LS Next2 design with 2.750" main diameters, 1/2" main and head studs
- Full water jackets
- Custom deck height options
- Raised camshaft locations
- Custom lifter bore diameters
- Cam tunnel options up to 60mm
Final machining options can include machining the deck surface for o-rings, installation of piston oilers and any other tweaks you'd like.
