http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=125524I am wrestling with this as you can tell, forged LSA vs LSX bowtie with forged internals and new heads.
What happened to surgin is causing me great concern. I hope we get a definitive answer on what the
cause was. Last thing I want to do is replace the block. However, I am prepared to do it.
Blown LSX block cylinder wall cracked like egg shells at only 912 hp. You think for the extra money you would get a good sense of security but your not.
Jesse do you think the block for the ZR1 would distort at 900 wheel hp? What do you think the limit is for the LSA block with forged internals "800 wheel"?
That seems to be an issue with the lsx if you bore it all the way to a
454, the highest jesse suggests is going 441 with our v's. Using oil to directly cool the pistons makes me wonder if a better oil than mobil 1 will benefit us more. I switched over to the new pennzoil ultra thats gm approved for our v's. Its the newest approved and new highest graded oil for gm
