Rick Mann's XS/R1 Engine Build
 
 

Rickís 1999 is getting some Extreme Street attitude with our highly modified 383 LS1. The basic components include Lunati 4340 Steel Crank, Billet Rods, Forged Pistons, ARP Studs, Custom Camshaft, Corvette Connectionís CNC Heads, Ported Throttle Body, and worked FAST Intake. There is a lot of attention to detail in creating a reliable monster like this. We trim, cut, port, sand, polish, shim, measure, weigh, re-balance, clean, and clean again just about everything before we are happy. Test fitting everything before final balance and assembly in our Clean Room will ensure a smile on Rick for a long time!

Notice the modified electric water pump pulley and the block reinforcing, Corvette Connection Motor Mounts? Look for more about our 12 rib blower drive.
