    I guess these just came out, from the sounds of LS1tech and the Corvette forums ,
    there is a BUNCH of buzz around them being built for high boost applications.

    So what's the potential ?

    I'd prolly be pretty safe to say with a properly built professional engine....with an ungodly amount of boost.....over 1000hp will be the NORM.....

    That thing is sick....almost makes me.....nah......:crazy:

    The sixth bolt would be down in the lifter valley. This must be xome sort of casting test block or something. There are no provisions for cooling.

    Ha I just went and read the thread in the link posted. It is a test block for mock-up.

    It in the lifter valley, you can see it on the far bank inside. Like the old ZL1 style blocks.

    They are using that block to mock-up parts and to ensure that everything fits the way that it should. That block shown in your picture can't run as an engine. They are going to be checking that all of the things (such as heads) bolt up correctly and the fitting is to their liking.
    Look at this block and you can see the collant passages
