don't laugh, i've seen someone do that shit before:D there was a fella that showed up 4yrs ago on broken bow with a sbc with shorty headers turned upside down and the single chamber drag flowmasters bolted to them pointing out. i chuckled when the dude wanted to race my sj with the 11 to 1 bbf and 200hp shot, so we lined up, i arm my nitrous, he purges his and we leave together, by 1/2 track he's pulling away:)sphss got my ass handed to me by a sbc, when i asked what was in it, he smiled and said it was a 13.5 to 1 454sbc with a 250hp shot:D dude had MAYDAY written across the transom in ducttape on a dookie brown lite ass kona.

"LSA" marine engine in these boats. 545 HP, blown, intercooled and yea I'd agree , pretty ugly!

http://outlaweagle.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1836

reportedly they are hitting mid 80's

http://outlaweagle.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1880

And there are now several LS3 whitewater race boats kicking around too, testing for a potentially new "crate engine" class...





First race was last weekend and I didnt hear firm results but I believe the carb'd boats are hitting 100ish
Thats just sexy...............:D

LS engines are never going to win a beauty contest, but if the coils were mounted on the block and got some aftermarket valve covers they wouldn't be too bad.

:D my buddy has a 427" SBC in his jet. Even has logs with just a single carb sticking out of the dog house. He hurts some feelings with it sometimes.

I think once people get over the hump, and let technology happen they will realize that these LS motors can have very few mods, and achieve very large #'s. I've seen 6-700 bhp with a stock bottom end.

Purdy till it turns Al. Oxide grey in under a week.

I'll never understand the guys who want to polish Aluminum constantly, and they never seem to realize how much they have to, untill they DO it, once.

i'm not a fan of polishing alum but lots of fellas don't mind rubbing it out once a wk:D i have a good friend with a lsx in his firebird show car that's all polished, its a 455sbc. the whole motor is polished, intake to pan, looks badass but he stays on top of it.
